Risk Appetite


Definition: Risk Appetite is the level of risk that an organization is prepared to accept in pursuit of its objectives, and before action is deemed necessary to reduce the risk. It represents a balance between the potential benefits of innovation and the threats that change inevitably brings.

The ISO 31000 risk management standard refers to risk appetite as the "amount and type of risk that an organization is prepared to pursue, retain or take".
