Answers to your questions


What is an Information Security Risk Assessment?

An Information Security Risk Assessment identifies and accesses important information security risks so companies and organizations can prioritize risks according to their importance. If organizations have budget constraints, they can carry out generalized assessments. However, if the results of the generalized assessment don’t provide enough information, then a more in-depth assessment is required.

What is the Purpose of an Information Security Risk Assessment?

It’s important to regularly conduct an information security risk assessment because the success of your business or organization’s activities depends on it. Every organization must ensure that all of its operations and IT frameworks are 100% safe from security lapses, loopholes, and outside interference. Running an information security risk assessment plays a key role in sustaining your organization’s overall security. It’s also worth noting that every single system, application, employee, or supplier has the potential to introduce a harmful cybersecurity risk to your business or organization. It’s therefore important to identify, assess, and quantify cyber risks as the first step to eliminating them. You must understand and assess information assets in your organization to help you accurately identify and address information security vulnerabilities existing in and around your business.

What is Your Approach to the ISRA Process?

Our approach in security assessment combines the best practices from leading security institutions such as the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), ISO 27000 standards, Operationally Critical Threat Asset and Vulnerability (OCTAVE), and our industry-leading proprietary security assessment methods. Our risk assessment process typically takes the following steps: 1. Start by identifying all valuable assets in the organization that can be harmed by a cyber-threat resulting in a monetary loss. These assets include web servers, websites and landing pages, customers’ personal and financial data, credit card data, trade secrets, and much more. 2. Determine the magnitude of a successful cyber-attack or hacking attempt. Identify the financial loses the organization would suffer if one or more assets were to be compromised. The consequences could be in the form of monetary losses, data loss, system or application downtime leading to costly interruption of operations, and legal penalties of the attack. 3. Identify types of threats and their level of severity. We help you identify the threats and assign them a value of low, moderate, or high depending on the severity. 4. Identify vulnerabilities to determine the likelihood of exploitation by attackers 5. Create a risk management plan using the data collected during the assessment. Provide customized plans that address the unique security challenges that your organizations face.

What is an Information Security Threat?

An information security threat is anything that exploits a vulnerability to breach your security and harm your organization’s assets. Examples of threats include natural disasters, system failure, accidental human interference, and of significant risk malicious human actions such as hacking attempts, interference, impersonation, and interception of information.
