What Is Risk Management? 

It is the standard practice of identifying, evaluating, tracking, trending and mitigating risk in business. 


It’s More Than Insurance

A common cannabis industry myth is that having insurance means you are managing risk but, in reality, that is only a small part of the risk framework. Effective Risk Management starts long before a claim is filed.  Whether you have one Risk Manager or an entire team, it is vital to the success of your business to know how to manage risk and control company exposure. What you don’t know can hurt you.
