Risks Scores Explained

If you look at the Management Plan for any of our modules, you will see columns on the right that indicate that Risk Scores are based on Severity & Probability (some people prefer to say likelihood & impact). Essentially, that is how we define our Risk Scores, and how you should explain it. We look at the likelihood that this particular issue could lead to a data breach or larger problem, and the severity of impact that the issue could have. The calculation itself is based off of a proprietary algorithm, however, which we do not make publically available.
