The Higher Education Information Security Council (formerly the Security Task Force) Risk Assessment Working Group has started to develop a list of Risk Assessment tools. This list does not contain any comparative or value judgment information regarding the tools. It merely provides the list as a starting point for the product-seeking process.

The European Network and Information Security Agency (ENISA) has also developed an inventory of Risk Management/Risk Assessment methods and tools. Note: Several of the tools listed on the ENISA website are included below, while others that were developed in Europe have not been added to this list yet.
