**HERE'S WHY**

Residual Risk represents the remaining risk after mitigating or transferring it. The inherent risk is the untreated likelihood x impact numerical score (5x5). After applying mitigating controls for example, the residual risk is the leftover risk that remains after treatment, which is a measure of the effectiveness of the treatment.

**BEFORE DIVING IN**

The residual risk only applies to risks for which you've applied one of the following treatment types: 'Mitigated' or 'Transferred'.

**HERE'S HOW**

When viewing the Risk Register, notice the two columns of numerical scoring. The left column represents the inherent risk score, while the right represents the residual score.
