The Uncertainty principle talks about not being able to accurately measure just two parameters of a particle risk management deals with a whole bunch of them. While there is universal agreement on risk being quantified as impact and likelihood, quantifying impact and likelihood to any level of accuracy is dependent on the discipline, context, model and taxonomy. The focus on risk management continues to increase as information security and cybersecurity standards and regulations propose risk assessments to decide on the security posture and controls.
