Risk Matrix Options

Before you begin to use RiskEasy® you should decide which type of risk matrix you wish to use.  The 5x5 matrix is  the most popular..

The choice is yours, but it should be made before you enter any risks.  The rating setup is system wide and will affect all users of the system if you have a multi-user system.  A short description of each matrix follows.

5x5 Risk Matrix (or up to 9x9)

The default setup uses a 5 by 5 risk matrix (likelihood and consequence).


System administrators are able to adjust the levels at which risk ratings start, so you can have more or less cells that are high or extreme risks.

To show you how flexible the risk matrix is, here are three versions of the Enterprise Risk Manager™ translated into foreign languages.





The matrix is only one reporting tool at you disposal when you use RiskEasy®.

Not only can you vary the matrix dimensions, but you can rename each and every tag - and select your own colors.
