In addition, this standard discloses a risk-oriented approach, which guarantees an efficient system of operation of this standard.  Risk-oriented thinking allows an organization to identify those factors that can provide processes with the necessary resources, carry out management, identify and implement opportunities for improvement.

The main purpose of the seminar was to familiarize the audience with the risk management, which replaced the concept of "preventive actions".  In addition, the new standards focus on leadership and clearly formulated management.  Now each organization, taking into account the standards, will be able to assess its own risks.
