Abstract
Under a Canadian Safety and Security Program (CSSP) targeted investigation (TI) project (CSSP-2015-TI-2130), the Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC) Centre for Security Science (CSS) led an examination of industry software to assess its suitability for internal use by risk analysts and portfolio managers. This report summarizes the feasibility of using commercial off the shelf (COTS) software to provide visibility into CSS use of risk for investment prioritization. Requirements were gathered, industry software examined, and results have been summarized and recommendations made. The report finds that COTS software products are aimed at providing deep risk management and visibility into those risks. They are not tailored to provide the CSS with the visibility into how risk is being considered as one of many variables in setting portfolio investment priorities. A basic development project is recommended to further explore the CSS requirements.
