In the IT world, the Security Risk Assessment refers to the process of investigating and identifying weaknesses in a computer network that could potentially result in data loss or cause downtime. A security Risk Assessment should tell you if there are any threats to your network, how vulnerable is your system, how probable it is for you to lose your data or your network get hacked. For example, if you want to assess the risk of a hacker compromising your system (i.e. you have no firewall or antivirus solutions), is your network vulnerable? In most cases, if you have good perimeter defenses, your vulnerability risk is lower. A Security Risk Assessment documents all the findings and creates a blueprint for how to fix the weaknesses in order to mitigate the risks.
Security risks may be very costly for a business. How devastating would it be to lose your information? Even if your data is secure, if your network goes down, a business could lose a tremendous amount of business in that short time. There are also some hidden costs when your network security is compromised. The aftermath of crucial information breech of your customers may be time-consuming and causes you to lose your reputation and customer trust. A thorough Security Risk Assessment helps you to prevent these risks by giving you great insight about your current network status in terms of security and integrity of your data systems. It will give you recommendations as well as a step to step guideline as to how to remediate any vulnerabilities.
