Certain amount of risk is associated with all types of business operations. At the same time, there are a number of growth opportunities that are also related to the business.
For the overall development, it is essential that these risks are hedged properly so that they cannot cause any kind of loss to the business or even if it causes any harm, the effects can be minimized as much as possible.

The monitoring activities are also very important to take hold of the market opportunities. Application of RIMS or COSO depends on the particular situation and is subjected to the approval of the management.
