Which type of risk response strategy are you demonstrating?

Examples of avoidance would include limiting the scope of security, adding security resources to eliminate the risk, or removing resources from a resource to eliminate the risk.
You are not demonstrating a risk response strategy of transference. Transference involves transferring the risk and its consequences to a third party. The third party is then responsible for owning and managing the risk.
You are not demonstrating a risk response strategy of mitigation. Mitigation involves reducing the probability or impact of a risk to an acceptable risk threshold. Examples of mitigation would include taking actions to minimize the probability of a risk.
