The purpose of a risk assessment is to guide management in the creation of appropriate strategies and controls for stewardship over information assets. With the help of a tailored risk assessment methodology, e-forensics experts will help identify and evaluate the risks that your organization faces. The information security risk assessment process involves:

  • Identification of information assets that need to be reviewed.
  • Identification of all threats, risks, concerns and issues related to the information assets.
  • Determination of the level to which the information asset is vulnerable to security threats and prioritization of risks.
  • Recommendation of required controls and safeguards to mitigate the identified risks.

Today’s organizations face an array of technological and strategic challenges that are more complex and dynamic than ever. Risk management is vital to ensuring trust among customers, employees, and strategic allies and is an indicator of how well an organization can carry out its mission and maintain and manage its future resources.

  • Aligning risk appetite and strategy – Management considers the entity’s risk appetite in evaluating strategic alternatives, setting related objectives, and developing mechanisms to manage related risks.
  • Enhancing risk response decisions – Risk management provides the rigor to identify and select among alternative risk responses – risk avoidance, reduction, sharing, and acceptance.
  • Reducing operational surprises and losses – Entities gain enhanced capability to identify potential events and establish responses, reducing surprises and associated costs or losses.
  • Identifying and managing multiple and cross-enterprise risks – Every enterprise faces a myriad of risks affecting different parts of the organization, and enterprise risk management facilitates effective response to the interrelated impacts, and integrated responses to multiple risks.
  • Seizing opportunities – By considering a full range of potential events, management is positioned to identify and proactively realize opportunities.
  • Improving deployment of capital – Obtaining robust risk information allows management to effectively assess overall capital needs and enhance capital allocation.
