Has anyone ever conducted a risk assessment of a MS-SQL server estate?

I just wanted to see a selection of risks people associate with enterprise level databases. And for this I don’t just mean security risks, I mean any kind of risk. So stuff like your day to day duties around DBA’ing, DB management, if you don’t do these tasks, or something goes wrong, or they are done inappropriately – what’s the risk to the business/customer etc? So… operation and management risks as well as security issues. I guess also common things that "go wrong" with databases and the types of risk they pose, and policies in place to mitigate the impact in the event that these risk/occurences actually do go wrong.

Anyone ever done such a risk assessment?
