You'll begin by outlining the concept of risk assessment and the advantages of different risk assessment techniques. You'll also investigate the features of security assessment methods, such as vulnerability assessment and penetration testing, and discover how to assess security vulnerability.

Moving on, you'll recognize the significance of risk categorization and how to update a risk register in Microsoft Excel using a four-quadrant risk classification matrix.

Finally, you'll identify the purpose and process of risk prioritization, and the role of a probability-impact matrix in determining risk levels. You'll then investigate how to use the matrix to prioritize risks on a security risk register.
