Assignment: Create a risk assessment matrix for the purchase and integration of six new web servers for a start-up Internet firm. The risk assessment matrix should include:

•  at least 5 risks

•  for each risk:

•  describe the risk - the risks can include information security, business continuity, operational, project management, financial, etc.

•  assess the likelihood of occurrence (i.e., probability), impact, and overall risk level based on these 2 factors (i.e., low probability and high impact equals a medium risk) - each of these risk factors can be rated as simple of low, medium, and high (or any scale that you would like to use)

•  provide a rationale for your assessment

•  provide a "cost-effective" mitigation strategy to address each risk

•  the results of your assessment for each risk should be plotted in the risk matrix - one axis should be probability while the other axis should be impact. The overall risk level will be the intersection of these two factors on the matrix.

•  the risk assessment matrix can be completed in your choice of Word, Excel, or PowerPoint

•  your grade on the assignment will be based on how well you address the above points, including the level of detail provided
