Create Local Risks

Local risks are children of global risks and represent potentially risky actions that users can do within an application or IT system. You add local risks to global risks to logically link the generic actions that users can do in applications to the actual entities, systems, and locations where they can do them.  In this model, “Create Azure Groups in Tenant X” could be a local risk belonging to the “Create Azure Groups” global risk. When the risk engine compiles a local risk, it returns all users having the risk functions as violations.

This article demonstrates how to create a local risk by adding a local risk to the Create Azure Groups global risk created in the Create Global Risks topic.
