Risk Register Update 2019/20

Joint Report of the Corporate Director of Regeneration and Local Services and the Corporate Director of Resources / Treasurer to the Joint Committee.



The Head of Finance and Transactional Services asked Members to note the Risk Register Update 2019/20 report, the Joint Committee considering updates on a six-monthly basis.  Members recalled that the report set out service risk register and the health and safety risk register, with risks being regularly reviewed by the Durham County Council Risk Management Team in conjunction with the Bereavement Services Manager.


It was explained that there had been no changes in risks, with no new risks having been identified.


The Head of Finance and Transactional Services noted older records were now held securely off-site and new records were being recorded electronically to mitigate against a potential data breach and he added that approximately 70 percent of transactions were now completed via BACS, to help mitigate against potential loss of income.




That the updated position in relation to the Risk Register be noted.
