A Pragmatic Risk Assessment Method Supported by the Business Model Canvas

Diogo Proença, Ahmad Nadali, José Borbinha

Abstract

This paper presents a pragmatic risk assessment method based on best practice from the ISO 31000 family of standards regarding risk management. The method proposed is supported by established risk management concepts that can be applied to help a data repository to gain awareness of the risks and costs of the controls for the identified risks. In simple terms the technique that supports this method is a pragmatic risk registry that can be used to identify risks from a Business Model Canvas of an organization. A Business Model Canvas is a model used in strategic management to document existing business models and develop new ones. The risk assessment method is then applied to a Civil Engineering Laboratory to illustrate the benefits of such a method.
