why do risk analysis
Why Do Risk Analysis?
  • Allocate resources
    • Reduce
    • Manage
    • Insure
  • Provides an organization with insight
why probabilistic analysis
Why Probabilistic Analysis?
  • To compare one risk against another
  • Consistent method of aggregating risk of a sequence of events

Why Probabilistic Analysis?
  • To compare one risk against another
  • Consistent method of aggregating risk of a sequence of events
criticism of pra
Criticism of PRA
  • It cannot be done because catastrophic events are rare
  • It is not practical as it takes too much time
  • It should not be done because it misses creative new threats
