Managing risks and controls definitions (Beta)


This article describes a beta feature that allows you to define your own risk and control tables and to manage risks and controls centrally in the Dictionary. You find a description of the stable basic risks and controls feature at Managing risks and controls.

You can configure custom risks and controls data types and manage risk and control objects in the Dictionary with our centralized risks and controls management feature.

In this way, you can ensure your risks and controls are consistent throughout your process landscape and facilitate re-use of those already defined.

To configure the risks and controls settings in your workspace, proceed as follows:

  1. Create dictionary categories for risks and controls.

    In the Signavio Explorer, click SetupDefine notations/attributes:

    Open the notation and attributes settings.

    Open the notation and attributes settings.

    Switch to the Dictionary tab and create two new categories; one for risks…

    Create a risk category.

    Create a risk category.

    …and one for controls.

    Create a control category.

    Create a control category.

    Be aware to set the type of the category respectively to Risks/Controls. To customize your risks and controls definition, add additional attributes to these categories. The attributes resemble the table headers in your risks or controls tables, for example severity, control interval, or responsibility.

  2. Configure ‘Risk Management’ element attributes.

    In the same dialog, switch to the Modeling Language tab and create a custom Risk Management attribute. When configuring the attribute, reference the newly created Risk and Control categories.

    Create a 'Risk Management' attribute.

    Create a ‘Risk Management’ attribute.

    Now you can start to define risk and controls for diagrams in your process landscape.
