Syllabus structure 

The syllabus comprises the following topics and weightings: 

A. Enterprise risk: Not all intended strategies are implemented due to various factors. These factors constitute the operating enterprise-wide risks of the organisation. This section covers how to identify, evaluate and manage these risks.

B. Strategic risk: A fundamental risk of the organisation is that its strategy is the wrong one and that even if implemented perfectly, it will achieve the wrong outcome for the organisation. In addition, some risks are of such high significance that they can affect the very existence of the organisation. This section covers where these risks emanate from, evaluates them and explains how oversight of such risks is critical to the governance of the organisation. 

C. Internal controls: Control systems are an integral part of managing risks. Various control frameworks have been developed to assist in this process. In addition, the internal audit function performs a vital role in helping to implement and monitor implementation and adherence to the control frameworks. This section covers how internal control systems can be used effectively in the risk management process.

D. Cyber risks: In a digital world one of the major threats is cyber risk. How are data and operating systems protected from unauthorised access and manipulation? How are breaches identified, analysed, remedied and reported? These are some of the questions covered in this section.
