It is a cornerstone notion for businesses and organizations, but also for nation states and their many levels of government. And even for individuals, risk and the avoidance or embracing thereof, is a key theme.

TOP REVIEWS FROM RISK IN MODERN SOCIETY
Lost of very good information on each category. The examples were very good to explain concepts and the instructors were each to understand. Overall, good summary/ brief course to risk
This course was very informative. It went in a direction I totally did not expect. Really gave me a lot to envision and think about, and have some kind of insight into.
I got a good understanding of the difference between safety and security. However, the course could be a little bit longer and in some parts more deeper.
The course was smooth and excellent to learn what I expected. The discussion options really interacted with peer learner and boosted up the confidence.
