Risk management

View this topic in
Risk management is the identification, assessment, and prioritization of risks (defined in ISO 31000 as the effect of uncertainty on objectives, whether positive or negative) followed by coordinated and economical application of resources to minimize, monitor, and control the probability and/or impact of unfortunate events or to maximize the realization of opportunities.

  • CVaR Minimizations in Support Vector Machines

    This chapter overview the connections between support vector machines (SVM) and conditional value at risk (CVaR) minimization and suggests further interactions beyond their similarity in appearance. It introduces several SVM formulations, whose relation to CVaR minimization. The chapter further discusses robust extensions of the CVaR formulation. It presents the dual problems of the CVaR-minimizing formulations, and shows that two kinds of robust modeling of the CVaR minimization for binary classification are tractable. Dual representations expand the range of algorithms and enrich the theory of SVM. SVMs are one of the most successful supervised learning methods that can be applied to classification or regression. The maximum margin hyperplane of hard-margin SVM classification (SVC) minimizes an upper bound of the generalization error. The support vector regression (SVR) method performs well in regression analysis and is a popular data analysis tool in machine learning and signal processing.

  • Mobile Cloud Computing

    Cloud computing opened the doors for a paradigm shift for the ways in which systems are deployed and used. It has made possible utility computing with infinite scalability and universal availability of systems. This chapter explores mobile cloud computing (MCC) and highlights the risks related to mobile clouds, in addition to the risks normally associated with system development. It provides an overview of the MCC domain and provides a discussion on different selected mobile cloud frameworks and their categorization. The chapter defines risk management and presents an analysis of risk factors currently prevalent in the MCC domain and presents an illustration of how these risks can affect an application. It depicts an analysis of mobile cloud frameworks from a risk management perspective and discusses the effectiveness of traditional risk approaches in dealing with MCC risks.

  • Killing in the Name of “Stolen” Jobs: The April 2015 Xenophobic Attacks in South Africa

    This chapter seeks to examine the way the government responded to the 2015 attacks while trying to interrogate the culture of xenophobia in South Africa and the validity of claims against foreigners. This case ultimately reveals the complex nature of South African society and the dynamics of the relationship between South Africans as hosts, and foreigners who live in their midst, particularly those foreigners from north of the River Limpopo. The chapter examines how the ruling African National Congress (ANC) government respond to discussed crisis. Given that the image of a burning African immigrant still haunts the collective consciousness of many South Africans and makes xenophobia a matter of critical concern, it is clear that what happened should have been on or near the top of the list of possible crisis events for the government.

  • Application of DFMEA to Real-Life Example

    This chapter provides a case study of a Design Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (DFMEA) for an actual telecommunications project. As a result of conducting this DFMEA, design faults were identified that otherwise may not have been discovered. Design changes were introduced to prevent these faults from being discovered after product introduction. Using the initial and revised RPNs, the design improvements can be quantified. The lessons learned from this project were identified and used to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of the subsequent DFMEAs for this project.

  • Risk Assessment and Management of Risk

    Environmental impacts resulting from solid waste management (SWM) are numerous, although many SWM systems have been designed to minimize or eliminate such environmental impacts through technological solutions. Emissions from landfills, incineration plants, mechanical-biological treatment (MBT) plants, recycling centers, and waste collection points can all impact human health, ecosystems, and material properties to some extent on either a short- or long-term basis. This chapter introduces the concept of risk assessment as a tool to assess effects related to human health, environment, and infrastructure, and discuss a framework for management of risk associated with social, economic, and political concerns. Risk assessment for sustainable SWM is an umbrella concept to help formulate problems, to assess detrimental effects, to identify and appraise management options through various policy measures or alternatives, and finally to address management strategies.
