Risk Management is a corner stone of successful organisations. Departments and personnel dedicated to practising risk management exist in the worlds most prominent organisations.

Governance Risk Compliance Security International (GRCSI) is an international organisation of professionals whose goals are to promote best practices in governance, risk management, compliance and security though education, certification, and accreditation. GRCSI was founded in early 2009 by professionals and practitioners across the globe that identified the need for an authoritative body in the realm of risk management. GRCSI has a board of directors and advisers comprised of industry professionals that are heavily immersed in risk management, a certification board that manages the certification program, an education board that manages conferences, courses and seminars, and a large pool of volunteers that have dedicated countless hours to the success of the organisation.

The need for a reliable method to assure the knowledge and expertise of risk management personnel has been growing. The Certified Risk Management Professional (CRMP) certification is an indispensable and unmatched method for a risk management professional to demonstrate their qualifications. The CRMP program is for risk managers who have the knowledge, skill, and experience that meet the demanding need for risk based decision making processes. For risk managers with extensive experience in financial, information, or operations risk management, three additional concentration certifications are also available. A fourth concentration in environmental risk management will be available later this year.

A professional who has attained the certification provides credibility and assurance to an organization that risk relevant decisions follow good industry process and practices to manage risks in a cost effective and efficient manner. A CRMP has demonstrated knowledge and skill in the Risk Management Body of Knowledge (RMBoK), the ability to identify, assess, and prioritize risks, and coordinate the economical application of resources to minimize, monitor, and control the probability and/or impact of events.

The CRMP certification is currently available to risk managers through testing centres. Risk managers with sufficient experience may apply for certification under a grandfathering provision through the end of the year. Please see the Certification page for more information about the CRMP certification and the respective concentrations.
