This project is about risk management in the Information Technology field. I first did a research paper on the subject of risk management and how it is used in IT companies. I was able to determine the most common types of risk management plans and what the steps were for basic risk management strategies. After doing the basic research, I then did a study on IT businesses to figure out what the good methods of risk management were and what each business preferred to use.
