Dr. Steven Briers has identified 13 elements, with 39 sub-elements, that can make up a risk. He calls this the "DNA of a Risk”. When conducting risk assessments, Risk Practitioners traditionally look at 2-3 elements of a risk, such as severity and likelihood. However there are many other elements that must be considered. Dr. Briers will explore these in more detail.  

Dr. Briers’ talk is condensed from his book "A New Language of Risk”, which is based on his Doctoral Thesis. It is a study that no serious risk practitioner can afford to miss.
