Risk is the one of basic and inevitable characteristics of every human activity. In connection with business activities, it is the factor that is not possible to entirely eliminate. The fact that it is possible only to minimize a risk, respectively to minimize its negative consequences at certain conditions fulfilment is one o the risk specifications.
The problem of risk classification is seriously wide. In scientific literature, various categorisations of risk are described and discussed while the categorisation is usually based on the purpose of presented classification.
Risk categorisation represents the file of a risk into the one of existing categories constructed on the basis of parameters of classified risks. In the work, the authors summarize the theoretical backgrounds of risk categorisation, and it is especially in consequences of risk connected with business activities.
The objective of the article is to provide the synthesis of theoretical categorisations of risk that would be contributing to the discipline of risk management as to the scientific discipline.
