Total risk is an assessment that identifies all of the risk factors associated with pursuing a specific course of action.

Total risk represents a combination of the systemic risk and unsystemic risk, including potential internal and external threats and liabilities, Identifying these risks requires performing a total risk assessment, which offers a comprehensive view of  potential threats an organization might encounter.
