- Category: Select Commercial, Finance, Security, Safety, or Legal/Regulatory from the drop down list. You may have more than one risk in a category.
- Risk Description: e.g. “Older scanners may not work under Windows 12”.
- Risk Cause: e.g. “Drivers may not exist for Windows 12”.
- Risk Consequences: e.g. “Invoices cannot be scanned in”.
Upload your updated template to the Forum by Wednesday night.
