Graceful Failure

Control

Document and assess whether (i) Model errors, (ii) Model failures, (iii) Product failures, (iv) IT failures, and/or (v) process and implementation failures - whether caused by attack or not - can result in physical or irreparable harm to humans, society and/or the environment. If present, mitigate these risks by implementing technological and/or process measures that make these failures graceful.


Aim

To identify risks and mitigating measures throughout the Product Lifecycle with regard to significant threats to individuals' physical, financial, social and psychological wellbeing.
