It would be kind of helpful to see what is already in there (complete list) to get an idea of where you are heading.

risk: Security breaches due to unauthorized use of private devices is one.
solution: Provide secure alternatives like RSA,Citrix and Good technology

risk:Lack of Firmwide document retention standard
solution: Create guidelines on documents which are marked to be deleted or passed the retention period


stuff like that.

Have a look at my artilces

click ->Articles Published at the top.
Lot's of risks there to think/read about.

Now matter where I go for an engagement I always see some of these issues:
Insufficient backup's, Users are Local Admins, no patch management, default configurations being used, no password auditing, default passwords being used, clear-text protocols containing passwords, no pentesting being done, coding best practices ignored (lack of SDLC), no security awareness efforts, no log management, insufficient logging levels, no egress filtering... and on and on...
Lack of policies and procedures is another. If your company needs to be PCI or SOX compliant, then you can check off 90% of those requirements as not being done.

The current threats haven't changed much... I'd suggest you read the Verizon/Microsoft reports and the OWASP top 10. Every year the threats are the same, they just switch places...
https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Top_10_2013-Top_10
http://www.verizonenterprise.com/DBIR/2013/
http://www.microsoft.com/security/sir/archive/default.aspx
https://www.sophos.com/en-us/threat-center/security-threat-report.aspx

Basically search for "threat report" or "risk report" maybe "enterprise risk report".
