What is the value of a risk assessment?

The object of risk assessment is to identify and quantify the risks involved in any activity, and totake appropriate action to reduce or eliminate any obvious or potentially harmful elements of it. Basically, Risk assessment is the first process in the risk management methodology. Organizations use risk assessment to determine the extent of the potential threat and the risk associated with various processes and activities in the organization. The output of this process helps to identify appropriate controls for reducing or eliminating risk during the risk mitigation process.

Without effective risk assessment, a successful risk mitigation plan cannot be developed.
