Risk matrix

The risk matrix as being used by RAFIS is as follows:

Impact
minimal small average big disastrous
Chance very high average average high critical critical
high low average high critical critical
normal low average high high critical
low low low average high high
very low low low low average high

RAFIS uses the following approaches to deal with a risk:

  • Control: Taking measures to lower the impact and chance of an incident.
  • Avoid: Taking measures to lower the chance of an incident.
  • Resist: Taking measures to lower the impact of an incident.
  • Accept: Accepting the impact and chance of an incident.
