What is Risk Assessment?

A  Risk Assessment is a process through which an organization verifies their security and privacy controls (people, process and technology) to understand their control relevance, effectiveness and adherence – thereby identifying the weaknesses with their current system. Security risk assessments are typically required by compliance standards, such as PCI-DSS, ISO 27001, HIPAA etc.

Why do you need Risk Assessment?

Security controls plays a critical role in protecting the organization’s information assets.  However blindly applying the security controls without understanding the risk exposure will not only be ineffective but also adversely impact the organization with the false sense of security.  A properly performed risk assessment is a critical component in understanding the complexities and control requirements suitable for the organization.

We at Reflect Security offers a comprehensive information security risk assessment designed to discover and quantify information security risk.
