Risk Identification and Assessment

To record the relevant risks of Bechtle AG as comprehensively as possible, the company uses a risk map. The risk list structures various risk types in the form of a checklist. The content of this list can be customised by the executive staff members involved in the risk identification and assessment in order to take any peculiarities of individual business areas into consideration.

The risk list, whose purpose is to summarise possible risks as comprehensively as possible, serves as the basis for the risk assessment: each risk is assessed for probability of occurrence and expected extent of damage (risk potential) and positioned in a risk matrix indicating the significance (A, B, C risks). An assessment reveals how probable the occurrence of the risk is for the underlying risk potential. The result is a consolidated presentation of all identified risks in the form of a “risk map”, both for Bechtle AG as a group and for each of its business segments.
