A Risk Assessment identifies various risks that could affect hardware, systems, networks, etc. in the event of a cyber-attack.
A Risk Assessment identifies various risks that could affect information assets (hardware, systems, networks, etc.). This assessment determines their current state and identifies any vulnerabilities, as well as recommendations for remediation and mitigation.
It is imperative that an organization that deals with sensitive information knows where their security measures stand at all times. Since there is no one-size-fits-all analysis, a Risk Assessment is tailored to the organization, its industry, and the threats it faces. The various assets that could be affected by an attack are analyzed, and the potential risks associated with each asset are identified. A detailed report of the vulnerabilities and key findings is provided, as well as recommendations and attainable measures for improvement.
