Value of Article and Risk Assessment
Your article was a concise overview of the process of risk assessment.  Many organizations have a difficult time in starting a risk assessment program, following through on all of the necessary steps - identification of assest, threats, controls, and determining what particular controls are worth the expense.  Furthermore, risk assessment is a life-long process that must continue in an ongoing basis, not just once a year or whenever compliance is required.

Thanks again for your overview.
