The Open Risk Data functionality of the Open Risk Manual is in still in active development!
Open Risk Data: An Open Online Database for Risk Managers
Open Risk Data is a new facility that aims to collect and made available online open source / public domain / creative commons licensed data sets that are relevant for risk management purposes
Motivation and Objective
The motivation for Open Risk Data is the observation that many major risk events have significant amounts of public information available about them. This is information that can be collected and structured so as to form the basis for further analysis.
- Overview of general Open Risk Data principles and resources.
- Broader Background about the Open Risk Manual
- A Generic Primer on the supported Data Model of the wikibase platform
- A more complete introduction (still very general scope) to the Data Model supporting the wikibase platform
- An introduction on using the wikidata Data Model to express risk data using specific examples
- The list of currently available Data Types
- A step back into more general Risk Data Ontologies
- Overview of Data Quality issues
- Simple Manual Search using keywords is via the Search Bar at the top of the page
- Search items by title (forthcoming)
- Via the API Example
- SPARQL API (forthcoming)
The manual data entry interface has two forms for creating items and properties respectively:
Programmatic insertion of data is on the roadmap building on mediawiki/wikidata tools
Data Models and Datasets
This list highlights the larger groups of dataset available as Open Risk Data (in reverse chronological order of first insertion)
- Digital Data Breaches Dataset (forthcoming)
- The collection of national financial regulators captures a structured description of regulatory agencies
- Fintech Risk Events is a collection of risk events that is being migrated from the Manual to the Database as a demo of an Open Risk Data use case
The specific data models used to capture the above datasets
Open Risk Data is based on Wikibase. Wikibase is a powerful, flexible and customizable open source knowledge base software that drives Wikidata. Wikidata acts as the central storage for the structured data of its Wikimedia sister projects including Wikipedia, Wikivoyage, Wiktionary, Wikisource, and others.
Wikibase's data export options include JSON, RDF/XML, N3, YAML and more and it provides a powerful query interface using SPARQL for both local and federated queries (with updates on changes), extending the potential data available from a single node to thousands. NB: This functionality is not yet implemented in Open Risk Data (upcoming)
A growing number of open databases participate in the wikidata universe as federated endpoints
There is a growing list of wikibase instances around the world (besides the initial Wikidata instance itself). An official list is available here (as a query). The objective is that Open Risk Data will become a golden source for structured risk data information as part of the Open Data ecosystem
