CRISAM Content Libraries

CRISAM® provides content libraries, containing topic-specific objects with sets of checking questions, for the identification and assessment of risks. Each set of questions aims at evaluating and quantifying the associated object according to the CRISAM® scoring model. The objects are related to each other through cause and effect relationships. In CRISAM® Explorer multiple content libraries can also be used simultaneously in order to operate risk management for different business areas.

Content libraries are closely related to the compliance references: For evaluating the compliance, CRISAM® provides a mapping containing the compliance references (relevant norms, standards and best practices) for each content library. Due to consistent changes in technology on the one hand, and new norms and regulations or new versions of publications on the other hand, content libraries are subject to cyclic updating. For this purpose, CRISAM® offers its content libraries on a subscription basis.

The available CRISAM® content libraries are described as follows.
