Riscaris is based in Switzerland and provides business consulting services and IT-based services for the active management of company risks as well as for risk-based topics such as business continuity management, governance, compliance and finance.
The name riscaris is a made-up word based on the words “risk”(latin risicare/resecare) and “care”. And that describes pretty well what the people at riscaris are doing. They help companies to identify slumbering risks, assess those risks in terms of probability that an event occurs and the impact it would have, and help to mitigate those risks. That could be any kinds of risks such as operational risks (fraud, damage of physical assets, utility disruptions, etc.), business risks and financial risks (risk of default, foreign currency exposure, etc.).
