IT Security Risk, Planning & Assessments
What is an IT Risk Assessment
An IT Risk Assessment is a comprehensive review of the IT organization, with the objective of identifying existing flaws that could be exploited to threaten the security of the network and data. It serves as the basis for deciding what countermeasures, if any, to take in reducing risk to an acceptable level, based on the value of the information resource to the organization.
An IT risk assessment does more than just tell you about the state of security of your IT infrastructure; it can facilitate decision-making on your organizational security strategy.
