What is Risk Register?

In my belief the core components of a typical risk register must be:

  • Date
  • Description and nature of the risk
  • Likelihood
  • Impact
  • Risk score
  • Risk treatment measure (like mitigation action)
  • Owner of the risk
  • Risk tolerance level
  • Risk ratings
  • Related project, product or department
  • Affected stakeholders
  • Assessment detail
  • Contingent response (the actions to be taken should the risk event actually occur)
  • Trigger (an event that itself results in the risk event occurring)
