Abstract : The current methodology for conducting Computer Risk Assessments within the Department of the Navy is examined by studying the theories and philosophies that have evolved from the perspective of the Federal Government. A review of the Navy's attitude and procedures for both contractual Assessments is presented, along with a general framework for conducting an assessment of the computer systems at the Naval Postgraduate School. Attention is then focused on the relative merits of automated and manual Risk Assessment methods, followed by an outline of proposed design specifications for a decision support system.
