Risk Details (Mitigations)

Risk Details (Mitigations) page is used to add mitigation details to either threat or opportunity.  Users can track their Mitigation Plan or individual Mitigation Steps.  The Mitigation Plan is a compilation of the individual steps below it.  The mitigation plan cost is rolled up from the cost of each mitigation step.  Tracking mitigation steps creates accountability when the step owner and planned dates are tracked.  The qualitative and simulation scoring fields (Probability, Cost, Schedule, etc.) in the mitigation steps represent the residual risk that remains after a mitigation step is completed.  Any graph that highlights a post-mitigated score will focus on the residual risk after all mitigation steps have been completed. The status of a mitigation step and the actual dates should be updated as the steps are started and finished.  This page is visible only to those users who have Read/Write access or View access for Risk Details (Mitigations).
