The following two examples demonstrate how risk assessment can be conducted in certain situations. Read briefly to get some basic ideas.
NIST (2010). Piloting Supply Chain Risk Management Practices for Federal Information Systems.
CDS Case Study. Making Information Risk Mitigation Decisions. Vincent Larcote Case Series. Case #6-0029. Center for Digital Strategies. Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth.
Practicing risk assessment fundamentals, processes and matrixes to one's own experiences offers an opportunity to apply the learning in the real world. Can you choose a particular information system security domain of your organization or industry and apply what you learned from the case readings and SLP examples? You can choose to assess comprehensively, or you can choose not to cover all the aspects of risk assessment but to focus on two or three major perspectives and go much more in depth.
