  • Facilitate – Support the organisation in performing its risk assessment and analysis, and the reporting of risk and development of insight
  • Challenge – testing the status quo, norms and conventions to ensure emerging issues and blind spots are thoroughly considered and tested
  • Foster – consider how to foster the development of an intelligence-led risk management culture
