What are the components of a Risk Assessment?
The Risk Assessment has a summary page to highlight key insights within each risk section and a corresponding detailed page for a deeper dive of each risk section.  Both the summary and detailed pages include an overall risk assessment of the company conducted by Dun & Bradstreet and a panel for each of the scores, ratings and indices for you to conduct your own risk assessment.  The panels include the following the Viability Rating, Failure Score, Delinquency Score, PAYDEX (payment index) and D&B Rating.

Each number within the score, rating or index has a probability of the event occurring. One of the following risk levels will be assigned based on the probability of the event:

The Summary section can be accessed from the left navigation and will automatically be displayed upon viewing a credit report.  The detailed Risk Assessment section can be accessed from the left navigation or from the top right Risk Assessment panel within the Summary section.   If the company is out of business then many of the sections will be suppressed as a score, rating or index cannot be calculated.
