Risk Subcategories

Estimated reading: 1 minute 412 views

Subcategories are further divisions or breakdowns within each main risk category. They provide a more detailed classification of risks, allowing for a granular understanding of the specific types of risks that an organization may encounter. The use of subcategories helps in targeted risk identification, assessment, and management. The specific subcategories in a risk register may vary based on the organization’s industry, context, and risk management framework. Read more about Risk Subcategories here.

The “Subcategories” tab allows you to generate a custom list of terms to tag different risks within TrustRegister. 

Click on the “+ Add Subcategory” button to begin populating the list. Once you have confirmed each risk subcategory, you can tag each risk against any one of these, allowing you to further segment your risk program.
