Goal-Driven Risk Assessment in Requirements Engineering

Risk analysis is traditionally considered a critical activity for the whole software system's lifecycle. Risks are identified by considering technical aspects (e.g., failures of the system, unavailability of services, etc.) and handled by suitable countermeasures through a refined design. This, however, introduces the problem of reconsidering system requirements. In this paper, the authors propose a goal-oriented approach for analyzing risks during the requirements analysis phase. Risks are analyzed along with stakeholder interests, and then countermeasures are identified and introduced as part of the system's requirements.
