Respond to Risks - A) mitigate the risk by lowering the impact or probability B) transfer the risk to another party C) avoid the risk entirely and do not take on the project
Monitor Risks - a continuous activity necessary to track the state of identified risks and making sure appropriate risk response plans are being
