Second Equation

Another, and more useful risk equation is Risk = (Threat x Vulnerability) Asset Value. The addition of asset value lets us get a much better idea of what the impact would be.

So let's work through it again. Answer these questions in the submission box below.

  1. What is a threat?
  2. What is a vulnerability?
  3. How do we define asset value?
  4. What is the value added of the the second risk equation?
  5. Ignoring the equations, how do you define risk?
