Knowledge means safety. protection. resilience.

BOKRIM provides the best practices framework and knowledge you need to keep minors and vulnerable adults as safe from sexual abuse as possible.

BOKRIM guides you at every step.

Protect children and vulnerable adults from sexual abuse as well as possible.

Protect your organization from sexual abuse and misconduct (SAM) risk as well as possible.

No previous experience required.

Best Practices

Children should be protected from sexual abuse and misconduct (SAM) with the best practices.

Compliance-based SAM requirements are minimum standards, not best practices.

BOKRIM ensures you will always know SAM risk management best practices and how to use them.

Expertly Implemented

You work with children because you want to help them.

You also want to keep them safe but are not a risk management expert.

BOKRIM guides you through creating a best practices system to keep children as safe from SAM as possible.


The current compliance approach to child protection only requires organizations to use four controls to prevent SAM.

They are critical controls, but they are not enough, on their own, to protect children and vulnerable adults from SAM.

BOKRIM enables you to implement comprehensive SAM child protection.


Compliance is concerned with keeping children safe.  It offers no protection to you or your organization.

Complete SAM risk management includes protecting yourselves and your organization from the disruption, reputation, and financial consequences of SAM risk.

BOKRIM enables you to implement complete SAM risk management.


It is debilitating when you know something awful like SAM can happen, and you are not sure if you are doing enough to prevent it or how you would deal with it if it happened.

Effective risk management is empowering because you can see you are doing everything you can to try to prevent SAM and have plans to deal with the consequences if you have to.

BOKRIM ensures you are managing SAM risk effectively.


You devote significant effort to helping children become independent. Yet, you depend on compliance-based rules to protect children from SAM and insurance to protect yourself from the consequences of SAM.

Neither are particularly effective or dependable.

BOKRIM enables you to take control of your SAM risk and actively manage it using best practices, making child protection and your protection effective and dependable.

Highest Standards

Compliance standards are, by their nature, minimum standards. 

You want children to be protected to the highest possible standard, not the minimum standards.

BOKRIM ensures you always meet your expectation of protecting children to the highest possible standards.

Welcome to BOK Risk Management

BOKRIM has developed BOK (for Body of Knowledge) Risk Management© – or BRM for short.

BRM delivers risk management best practices to any organization, even if they have no previous risk management experience.

BRM has two elements: The BOKSURE Application and the SAM Risk BOK.

The BOKSURE Application

The online BOKSURE application guides a SAM Risk Manager through the four-stage cycle of risk management best practice.

The SAM Risk BOK

The SAM Risk BOK is a constantly updated body of knowledge containing everything BOKRIM knows and learns about SAM, SAM risk, and SAM risk management. 

The SAM Risk BOK helps a SAM risk manager decide which best practices to use and how to use them.

BOKSURE and the SAM Risk BOK Together

BRM - the combination of BOKSURE and The SAM Risk BOK - transforms how well SAM risk can be managed. 

Every SAM Risk Manager always understands their organization, how minors and vulnerable adults are vulnerable to SAM, and what their organization's SAM risks are.

They can customize a best practices SAM risk management system. They can also identify when they need to adapt their system and always have access to the latest SAM risk management developments and improvements, so they also have the latest information on how to adapt and constantly improve their system.

This combination of attributes means a SAM Risk Manager can always keep children as safe as possible from SAM and protect themselves and their organization from SAM risk.

1. Assess
A SAM Risk Assessment ensures you understand the types and forms of SAM risk that result from your organization's nature.

Our tools let you assess your SAM risks and understand where they are concentrated, who they impact, and how they affect different people.
2. Customize
When you understand your SAM risks, you can customize a SAM risk management system that keeps both children and your organization as safe from SAM and its consequences as you can make them.

You select principles to guide your decisions, choose controls that make sense for your risks, and create activities that are practical for your organization.
3. Manage
Once customized, your BOKSURE system means you can monitor controls, constantly improve them, respond to all kinds of SAM-related incidents, and manage change.

You will perform all the activities necessary to maintain your SAM risk management at best practice levels.
4. Improve

You must constantly improve a system to keep it operating as well as possible.

We constantly analyze SAM risk management performance and deliver the latest developments and improvements directly to you. As a result, you can always see what might be incorporated into your system to improve its effectiveness and efficiency.
