Software Risk Management may be defined as a well defined, continual set of activities that together with the necessary tolls and metrics can be used to identify, analyze and mitigate the risks involved in the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) of Software Projects through the usage of well defined policies, procedures and practices.
