IT-Related Risk

The net mission impact considering the probability that a particular threat-source will exercise (accidentally trigger or intentionally exploit) a particular information system vulnerability and the resulting impact if this should occur. IT-related risks arise from legal liability or mission loss due to—
1. Unauthorized (malicious or accidental) disclosure, modification, or
destruction of information
2. Unintentional errors and omissions
3. IT disruptions due to natural or man-made disasters
4. Failure to exercise due care and diligence in the implementation and operation of the IT system.
