The correct answer is A.

OBJ-5.4: Risk appetite describes how much risk an organization is willing to accept. This is a crucial factor both in designing the assessment and determining the recommended mitigations. Risk mitigation is a strategy to prepare for and lessen the effects of threats faced by a data center. Risk mitigation refers to applying security controls to reduce the risk of a known vulnerability. Risk avoidance is the elimination of hazards, activities, and exposures that can negatively affect an organization’s assets. Risk acceptance is the act of accepting the identified risk and not taking additional actions to reduce the risk because the risk is low enough. Risk acceptance should only be done once an organization’s risk tolerance is defined and communicated amongst the decision-makers.
