Descriptor for Risk Rating and Risk Level
Once you have read the "Risk Likelihood" and "Risk Impact" blogs, the product of both will give you "Risk Rating".
Risk Rating is the product of Risk Likelihood and Highest Risk Impact.
It represents the overall Risk Rating of a threat (or crisis scenario) to the organisation taking into consideration the Risk Likelihood of the threat occurring and its Risk Impact.
Simply put, Risk Ratings = Risk Likelihood x Risk Impact.
This is the perceived level of risk to the business unit as assessed against each identified threat. It is the overall level of assessed risk to the risk rating.
