### Re: Risk burn down graph

To create the risk burndown chart, we need to list top project's risk along with the probability of the risk occurring and the size of the loss(impact) that may occur. The expected exposure to the risk which is the probability multiplied by the size of the loss.

The risk burndown chart is then created by plotting the sum of the risk exposure values for the iterations. Y axis has risk exposure and the X axis list the iterations.
