Posted by Katrina Opgenorth on Fri, Jul 17, 2015 @ 07:15 AM

We are extremely proud to announce a new tool area: Risk and Control Matrices (RCM). Members have been asking for these samples, and we have managed to put together a tool like no other on our site.

Each sample RCM contains a compilation of risks by business process and a vast array of possible controls to choose from. Unlike any of our other tools and resources on KnowledgeLeader, each of our RCMs will be periodically refreshed with new content after its initial publish–making it its own expanding resource. So you’ll have to keep an eye out for updated RCMs that will indicate we’ve added new risks sand controls!
