Whether you realize it or not, your risk assessment is full of cognitive biases. That means you might think you've captured the high risks, when the reality is that you are horribly exposed to risks you either minimized or didn’t see altogether. And you might not even realize it.

In this webinar, internal audit, risk management, and compliance expert, Jason Mefford, will share how to:

  • Understand the most common cognitive biases.

  • Acknowledge and deal with the cognitive biases in how you design your risk assessment.

  • Get away from risk/heat maps and complex calculations that hide your biases.
