Take a look at the likelihood that a hacker could take advantage of a vulnerability in an application and at the business impact it could have, by doing a software risk assessment. The higher the risk, the greater the loss of corporate revenue and reputation would be.

The likelihood of a hacker wreaking havoc on a system is rated between two values: 0 and 1. As the likelihood approaches the value of 1 in a software risk assessment, the higher the chance of the vulnerability being exploited. A value of 0 means there is no risk, which is not possible in real life. The value of the assessment's benefits should be greater than its costs.
