Risk Ownership is the process of assigning risks to the most appropriate person or agency with the understanding that "unowned" risks often go unmanaged. The subtext of risk ownership is that people work on behalf of organizations yet maintain personal responsibilities to manage particular risks. Risk ownership is determined by acknowledging a source of risk and identifying the person best suited to understand that risk and its required mitigation protocol.
