The Master Database groups categories into risk classes. Risk classes suggest possible types or levels of vulnerability posed by sites in the group of categories.
Risk classes are used primarily in reporting. The dashboards include graphs where Internet activity is displayed by risk class, and you can generate presentation or investigative reports organized by risk class.
Risk classes may also be helpful in creating category filters. Initially, for example, the Basic Security category filter blocks all of the default categories in the Security Risk class. You might use the risk class groupings as a guideline when you create your own category filters, to help decide whether a category should be permitted, blocked, or restricted in some way.
There are 5 risk classes. By default, each risk class contains the categories listed below.

(Forcepoint Web Security only) Also includes Advanced Malware Command and Control, Advanced Malware Payloads, Custom-Encrypted Uploads, Files Containing Passwords, Potentially Exploited Documents.
Super Administrators can change the categories assigned to each risk class on the Settings > General > Risk Class page (see Assigning categories to risk classes).
