#1390 Risk Mitigation not countermeasures change request accepted

Suggesting a simpler and more common term for use in BURM etc.

Countermeasures seems a very specific term (applies to risk offset, active and passive approaches, military use) and not broad and all encompassing enough for the variety of business risk perspectives - isn't mitigation is a more general and commonly used term?

Proposed change applies to Risk management

I agree with David regarding the use of 'countermeasures' in BURM level 5. In fact, 'mitigation' is used in the new SFIA 8 wording for Risk Management BURM, which also has had "Business" removed from the skill name. Current wording proposed for SFIA 8 BURM can be viewed via the link attached to this Change Request.
