Once the risk assessments have been identified, your assignment is to provide control measures based on the

and recommendations.
The project should be a technical report with a minimum of three pages detailing your findings and
The project should be written in full (7th Edition APA format) and include the elements listed below.
1. Perform a quantitative risk assessment before and after the recommended controls. (You may include these as
