  • The loss potential that exists as the result of threat-vulnerability pairs. Reducing either the threat or the vulnerability reduces the risk. (AFR 205-16;; AFR 700-10;)
  • The uncertainty of loss expressed in terms of probability of such loss. (AR 380-380;)
  • The probability that a hostile entity will successfully exploit a particular telecommunications or COMSEC system for intelligence purposes; its factors are threat and vulnerability. (NCSC-9)
  • A combination of the likelihood that a threat shall occur, the likelihood that a threat occurrence shall result in an adverse impact, and the severity of the resulting adverse impact. (AFR 205-16)
  • the probability that a particular threat will exploit a particular vulnerability of the system. (NCSC-Td-004-88)
