Let's talk about the RISK
Organizations in the public and private sectors depend on information technology and information systems to successfully carry out their missions and business functions.
Information systems can include very diverse entities ranging from office networks, financial and personnel systems to very specialized systems (e.g., industrial/process control systems and telecommunications systems). These systems are subject to serious threats that can have adverse effects on organizational operations and assets, by exploiting both known and unknown vulnerabilities to compromise the confidentiality, integrity, or availability of the information being processed, stored, or transmitted by those systems.
Therefore, it is greatly advised that leaders and managers at all levels will be coping with information security risk—that is, the risk associated with the operation and use of information systems that support the missions and business functions of their organizations.
what is risk assessment?
Risk Assessment is one of the fundamental components of an organizational risk management process.
Cybersecurity risk assessment is the process of identifying, analyzing, and assessing cybersecurity risks across the organization. Assessing risk requires the careful analysis of threat and vulnerability information to determine the extent to which circumstances or events could adversely impact an organization and the likelihood that such circumstances or events will occur.
Risk assessments address the potential adverse impacts to organizational operations and assets, individuals and other organizations arising from the operation and use of information systems and the information processed, stored, and transmitted by those systems. Organizations conduct risk assessments to determine risks that are common to the organization’s core business functions, business processes, business segments, common infrastructure/support services, or information systems.
The assessment help inform decision-makers and support proper risk responses and provide an executive summary to help executives and directors make informed decisions about security.
