Microsoft’s Four Phases of Risk Management Microsoft’s stance on security and risk management is that it should be integrated into the general management of an organization so that the organization can “make better, more informed decisions.” (Whitman & Mattord, 2010).

To that end, Microsoft developed four phases for managing risk: assessing risk, conducting decision support, implementing controls and finally, measuring program effectiveness (Whitman & Mattord, 2010). The first phase, Assessing Risk, involves first planning how to collect risk data, then actually gathering the data. Finally, prioritizing the risks; using both qualified and quantifiable measurements to prioritize the risks collected.
