One of the best ways to begin a risk assessment is to search for methods that others have used successfully. You need to search for templates, procedures, and methodology that were used by others. Your research will allow you to use some things that worked well for others, but remember that your organization is unique and your assessment tool should reflect that. You will research and analyze different risk assessment methods and how they can assist in developing a custom risk assessment tool for their analysis. Once you have designed your risk assessment tool, post it along with the reasons why you designed the tool the way that you did.
