What are examples of IT Business Risks for a Risk Assessment

I am tasked with coming up with IS business risks.  Could a few of you show me a list of all of the various business risks or show me a web site that has good IS business risks?

You'll find some starting points in these:

http://csrc.nist.gov/publications/nistpubs/800-30/sp800-30.pdf
http://www.theirm.org/publications/documents/Risk_Management_Standard_030820.pdf

While there no doubt are generic threat lists for certain systems or environments, the true value of risk assessment comes from mapping out the target system/environment and coming up with threats/risks specifically related to it. An "IT business risk" can be any IT-related threat or occurrence that can cause losses or hinder/terminate business operations.

CoccoBill,

    Thanks.  This is a stab in the right direction.  I understand the basic premise and I've read the NIST document before.  I have written IS risks, but the document I am attempting to work on is Business IS risks and I'm having a hard time distinguishing between the IS risks and the business IS risks.  They seem to interrelated and I don't have much to go on from the material.

    I'll wait for further response from you and from others to see if I can get anything new...

Thanks,
