A basic principle most people don’t understand about risk | Norman Marks on Governance, Risk Management, and Audit
"Almost everybody makes a fundamental error when it comes to assessing a risk [...] They show the level of risk as a point: the likelihood of a potential impact or consequence. But 99% of the time this is wrong. 99% of the time, there is a range of potential consequences, each with its own likelihood."

Conspectus Risk Assessment & Management Strategies
"GRASP is technically a soft-systems methodology that uses multi-stakeholder perspectives to make it easier for any management team to determine what should be done to ensure its projects go forward successfully, its strategic planning is sustainable and its critical decisions more likely to gain widespread support. The methodology makes it easier to identify less obvious but nonetheless important opportunities, search for underlying causes of risk to the project and better define the inevitable uncertainties and assumptions present in all projects."

"Q: Do you see any way in which the market would reward security and longevity for technology? [...] A: Yes, the market will reward it if it is forced to. Think of laws and regulation as establishing the playing field for the market to operate in. Once society demands -- through the levels of policy -- security and longevity, the market will figure out how to provide it cheaply and efficiently and effectively. Markets are good at that. What they're terrible at is societal direction."
