The Business Risk Assessment is a technical evaluation of business components, systems and the variables that can potentially have a negative impact on an organization’s ability to conduct business.
We analyze information gathered from business leaders and the security assessment of networks, policies, and procedures. Next, we develop a plan of strategic and tactical security countermeasures.
When the organization implements the controls, it has a new security posture, and the cycle of analysis, plan development and implementation begins again. Periodic risk assessment and analysis are necessary in any long-term plan to track progress, identify trends, maintain a solid security posture and meet future IT security objectives.
Periodic risk assessment and analysis assist in:
- Long-term planning, tracking progress, identifying trends
- Helping organizations identify and close issues in a planned manner
- Increasing understanding and confidence in the security controls
- Maintaining a solid security posture and meeting future IT security objectives
