The main objective of the iterative risk management process is to reduce the identified risks, associated with the activities carried out by each structure, as part of the educational entity. As an integral part of risk management, identifying risks or analyzing the future of an organization is a dynamic process that is realized by discovering all the feasible sources that can generate risks, in order to eliminate or diminish the effects that they can produce by the impact they have on achievement of the general and specific objectives set by the organization. The implementation of the risk register, at the level of the educational organizations, involves completion of all specific stages of risk management and elaboration of a document confirming the existence of a functional risk monitoring system, but also of a database with the identified risks, by the leaders of the educational organization.
