1. What are the differences between Threats and Vulnerabilities?
2. How does Risk information change depending on different decision-makers? Describe one scenario and explain how different decision-makers (e.g., a facility manager, a governor, a public health official, or a federal infrastructure protection official, etc.) would have different needs for inputs and outputs.
3. What are the benefits of risk-based approaches? When might an examination of only one risk factor be appropriate for decision-making? And, when might only reviewing one risk factor lead to poor results?
