Top risks granularity.

I'm currently struggling with top risks list and would like to ask what should be granularity of risk.

For example, is it better to place "security threats" in the list or rather lower level rsisks (e.g identity theft", "compromised servers availability") ?

Detailing is always better, you may have different risk aversion techniques for each of the expected security risks and detailing would give you oppurtunity to explain them all. You can put them all under 1 risk titled security risks with sub titles to listdown specific risks.

I think you need to figure it out high level risks and gradually drill-down into it. Use "Top-down" approach.
