A well designed and integrated database used to present risk management information by using a dashboard interface supported by real time risk management data makes it easy for risk managers to reach a full understanding of the surrounding threats and allows them to find the proper and right controls to mitigate them. The chapter presents a case study for a statistics data center that shows that the calculation of total risk at the organization level is possible by using the proposed risk database that supports decision makers when threats hit the organization. The chapter also shows that presenting the risk level on a dashboard viewer makes risk level clearer for a decision maker in a statistics data center and assists in the creation of a tool to follow-up risk management since the time a threat hits till the time of its mitigation.
