​I am teaching an introduction to systems engineering class and was wondering whether it is standard to consider risks to society at large (e.g. spreading COVID as a result of lax precautions or contributions to global warming).  This would be in contrast to focusing exclusively on risks the development and/or operations of the system (e.g. unreliablity of parts, a component not meeting TRL).  Any pointers to documentation or guidance would be very helpful.

I joined a new USAF organization a few months ago​ and was assigned as risk manager for an upcoming program.  Currently, I'm using an excel file to document all the risks and then hand-jamming it all in to powerpoint for my review boards.  I'm trying to find out if there are any other USAF personnel that are currently using any risk management software.  I've gone through the list of tools provided on this sharepoint site, but unfortunately, a number of their websites are blocked and the others seem to not have been approved for use on DoD computers... I've heard the process to get software approved is extensive.  AFERMS (with ARM) looks promising but it doesn't appear to be free for use on USAF systems, nor does it show up on the approved software list for use on USAF computers (per my IT POC).

In past several programs I have worked, a recommendation for a risk, issue or opportunity is brought forward thru the systems engineering team and/or the risk manager, vetted and presented during a risk management board (RMB), for the senior body and the chair of the RMB to adjudicate.  Recently this notion of division of responsibility has come into question and I cannot find any documentation that reference back as to the process initial beginnings.  The argument in question is that to prevent any ethical entanglements (between the recommendation and adjudication, among the parties making them) given that risks/issues/opportunities could have financial and resource implications on any given program.  As reference, I read the DAU/DoD RIO Guide 2017, NAVSEA 5000.8 instruction and the fifth edition PMBOK.  Any thoughts?  Thank you kindly.
