Example Risk Report

The risk report should focus on the risks to your project succeeding on time (and not, say, on general health and safety points). It is only 50 words. Example:

"Identified risks:
 * Training data requires access authorisation that has not been approved, and we don’t know if client can do this
 * Two group members have unreliable network connections and may miss meetings
 * One group member is in timezone UTC+8, and will have to attend meetings late at night
 * Bug reports on Github for a library we plan to use suggest maintenance updates will be necessary for recent Android release"
