Risk Assessment

Rachel Derr

Abstract

In Chapter 2 we discussed “What is risk?” The discussion here continues that chapter and assists in the process of determining the consequences of any incident. The potential for an adverse outcome is assessed as a function of threats, vulnerabilities, and consequences associated with an incident, event, or occurrence. In previous chapters, we have discussed risk, threats, and vulnerabilities; now we cover the consequences of an incident. This chapter walks readers through the process of putting all of the process together.
