Risk Matrix

THREATGET comes with a risk matrix derived from ISO/SAE 21434. This risk matrix can also be displayed in the Enterprise Architect Plugin.

To switch to the risk matrix view, please click on the admin button on the right upper corner and select Risk Matrix.

The initial values correspond with the recommendations of the standard.

The value 1 is the lowest risk and value 5 is the highest risk. It is possible to modify the risk matrix with values ranging from 1 to 5 depending on the type of project you are working on.

Likelihood has the following potential values: Very Low, Low, Medium, and High.

Impact has the following potential values: Negligible, Moderate, Major, and Severe.

The matrix is freely configurable, as can be seen in the images below. The colours change depending on the value. By clicking Save, the changes in the risk matrix can be applied.

NOTE: The save button can only be clicked when at least one of the fields has been modified.

Your updates on the risk matrix will be reflected on the ThreatGet EA plugin.
