RiskQ

A vulnerability/risk assessment is a step by step evaluation that aims to identify vulnerabilities/risks and, the ability to reduce these vulnerabilities/risks through corrective actions. An effective vulnerability/risk assessment identifies critical business aspects (e.g. processes, assets). The vulnerability/risk assessment provides a framework for developing vulnerability/risk reduction options and determining associated costs to enable this.

RiskQ Website

RiskQ, accessible via www.riskq.co.za, has been developed with the purpose of providing assistance with:

  • Identifying and understanding vulnerabilities and risks
  • Prioritising, planning and implementing measures to control and manage these vulnerabilities and risks

RiskQ allows users to conduct both vulnerability and/or risk assessments:

  • Vulnerability assessment ? is an assessment of an exploitable weakness or deficiency (i.e. the assessment of probability or likelihood of a threat or challenge occurring).
  • Risk assessment ? is an assessment of the combination of (i) the probability of a threat or challenge occurring and (ii) the consequence should it happen (i.e. impact).

Tool Features include:

  • Guided self-assessment
  • Easy to complete/immediate feedback
  • Communication tool
  • Awareness/education tool (capacity building)
  • Checklist to ensure things get done
  • Identifies vulnerabilities/risks/gaps/areas of need
  • Forced to think about and address all aspects

Current tools on RiskQ include:

  • DWA Municipal Strategic Self-Assessment (MuSSA)
  • WRC Water Safety Plan Tool
  • WRC Water Safety Planning Status Checklist Tool
  • WRC Wastewater Risk Abatement Plan Tool
  • WRC Wastewater Risk Abatement Planning Status Checklist Tool
  • WRC WaterVUL – Water Infrastructure Vulnerability Assessment
  • Business Health Assessment
  • Climate Change Adaptation Vulnerability Assessment
  • Tender Quality Evaluation Schedule

Importantly, RiskQ is not limited to water services related tools, and can accommodate any sector requiring a vulnerability/risk assessment and associated management tool.
