Risk Assessment

Risk Assessment (RA) is an integral part of information security program for any organization. It presupposes business impact analysis and embraces all the major assets/ operations. The RA process consists of a detailed study of the threats and vulnerabilities and the resultant exposure the organization faces. It opens the choices of risk treatment (RT) like mitigation, acceptance, transference etc. Hence, a successful RA focuses the limited resources of an organization on the proper risk treatment and thus brings down the residual risk to the level of acceptable risk, thus in turn paving way for the information security governance.
