What is Your Appetite for Risk?
At some point, every CISO or CIO is asked, “What is the risk of having a data breach, and what are you doing to prevent this from happening?”
There are simply not enough resources to secure your organization against every threat and vulnerability. Therefore, you must prioritize how best to protect your assets, based on a Security Risk Assessment.
Our senior security advisors examine your organization’s risks as they pertain to people and processes, workflows and technology implementations. We provide you with a prioritized gap remediation plan, based on risk factors associated with each identified gap.
Does Your Organization Need a Security Risk Assessment?
Four Simple Questions:
- Do you know your organization’s risk appetite (risk acceptance vs. risk avoidance)?
- Does your organization require an annual 3rd party, independent security risk assessment, as required for regulatory compliance (FERPA, FISMA, FFIEC, HIPAA, PCI DSS, NIST SP 800-171, etc.)?
- Have you performed a deep dive examination into your IT infrastructure to uncover risks, threats, and vulnerabilities throughout people, process, & technology?
- Does your organization have a risk mitigation or gap remediation plan prioritizing “Critical” and “Major” risks to remediate?
Your Risks and Threats Change Over Time
Compliance laws mandate that organizations perform an annual security risk assessment, particularly in implementing configuration change management and new IT assets. ITPG Secure Compliance has conducted hundreds of these assessments and can streamline the process from start to finish.
