Table of Contents

1. Overview

Access the Risk Analysis page via home page left-hand navigation panel.

This area provides a graphical snapshot of risks against your hierarchies and allows drill down for more information and analysis of changes in Risk Ratings over time.

It consists of four tabs: Overview, Assessment Heatmap, Heatmap Dashboard and Charts. Details of each tab is based on the filters and the selected organisation hierarchy level.

  • Displays pie charts grouped by the type (Strategic, Operational, Project and Corporate).

  • Each pie chart reflect risks per each assessment (Initial, Current, and Future)

  • Pie charts are filtered based on the organisation level and main filter selection.

  • Details of the risk can be viewed by simply clicking a percentage value within the graph and a grid is displayed just below the pie chart, indicating risk code, title, responsible person, and last review date. Clicking the risk title will navigate the user to the risk detail screen.

  • Clicking the report icon next to the risk opens a pop-up displaying summary view of the risk.

  • Ledged: Indicate the assessments levels (Initial, Current and Future) and risk rating colours.

  • System Alerts: displayed the top ten risks sorted by the criticality of the revised risk assessment and review overdue risks.

You may drill up and down through the Organisation Hierarchy by clicking on the ‘Organisation’ side menu, and using the arrows to drill up and down to find the level of the organisation that you want to view the risks for:

Once you have clicked on the level of the hierarchy that you want to view, you can either dock the side menu out or collapse this (hide it) from the screen. The page will refresh and display risks specifically linked to that level of the hierarchy.


Note: The details displayed in this page defaults to the logged in user’s organisation hierarchy. However, you can select any other organisation hierarchy node to display details in this page.

Risk analysis involves assessing potential risks within the organisation. The pie chart categorises risks as very high, high, insignificant, low, or moderate. Clicking on a category displays all relevant records, while a link allows you to edit that specific record. Once you have made the necessary changes, click on the Save button.

To filter, you can click on the Filter button, Tick on the Show Rollup Information, summarising how different risks are connected and affect the overall analysis, and click the Search button.

2. Heatmap Dashboard

Heatmap Dashboard will visualise your organisation’s risks across its ratings enabling you to click on them to enable track lines and time line trends which shows its movement across the matrix over time. 

This allows you to visualise your organisation’s risks across its ratings at different levels of assessment in a heatmap.


Note: This will be automatically generated based on the risk matrix configurations done for the current/revised risk assessment within the application. This can be enabled via the 'Enable Heatmap' setting accessed via Camms.Risk > Framework > Risk Settings > Heatmap Settings area.

Risks at the three assessment levels shown in the colour coding below and a track line to show the movement of the risk from initial, revised to future assessment levels is shown in the track line view when you tick the 'Show Track Lines' option.

  • Inherent Risk Rating – shown using grey

  • Residual Risk Rating – shown using white

  • Future Risk Rating – shown using black


Note: You can view the track lines for all risks within the dashboard in one view or click on a specific risk and view the track line for any risk individually.

You can also visualise the timeline trend for the risk by clicking on the Show Timeline Trend check box and this would show the movement of the risk rating during the selected course of time for which the heatmap analysis area is filtered to.


Note: You can view the timeline trend for all risks within the dashboard in one view or click on a specific risk and view the timeline trend for any risk individually.
