How Can I Benefit?
A risk assessment helps mitigate your potential losses due to error, fraud, inefficiency, failure to comply with statutory requirements and actions that may have a negative effect on your organization.
If your organization has ever asked these questions, a risk assessment may be right for you:
- How do we identify and get out in front of emerging risk?
- Have we adequately considered down-side risk to our business objectives?
- What could go wrong?
- Where is the greatest risk that something will go wrong?
- If something goes wrong, what is the impact?
- How often could it happen?
- How can the risk be mitigated?
The assessment includes key activities such as:
- Asset Classification
- Vulnerability Discovery
- Control Assessment
- Threat Assessment
- Risk Formulation
- Impact and Likelihood Assessment
Each assessment concludes with a full risk assessment report, including priorities, recommendations and a full narrative of our findings.
This report provides you with an overview of your current system and assists in establishing a benchmark for building a successful IT strategy moving forward. We ensure that your systems are performing at their optimum level, meeting baseline security standards, along with expected operational standards and business objectives.
Finally, when all of that is complete, we will present the findings to your team to help guide decision-making that is inline with your risk posture.
