For a long time, humans have used various organisms to help them detect dangerous environmental conditions. Animals used for this purpose are called ‘Sentinel Species’ by scientists -- the best example is the use of caged canaries to detect dangerous levels of carbon monoxide in coal mines.
In the first two posts of this series, we discussed the importance of building a threat library and risk rating tables followed by acquiring data to conduct analyses. In this final post, we will discuss analyzing the data and communicating it to management.
In my first post of this series, I focused on how to build a threat library and risk rating tables.
One of my goals with this blog series is to provide a path for people to see how to go from 'High, Medium and Low' risk ratings to data-driven risk assessments.
