Regular risk assessments are a fundamental part of any substantive risk management process. They help you arrive at an acceptable level of risk while drawing attention to any required control measures. If you don’t assess your risks, they cannot be properly managed, and business is left exposed. The risk assessment process is continual, and should be reviewed regularly to ensure your findings are still relevant. A successful risk assessment process is one that helps you cost-effectively reduce risks and is aligned with your business goals. Sage can help you conduct risk assessments on any application, function, or process.
The IT Infrastructure Risk Assessment looks at the design, configuration, and operational processes that are critical to your information technology infrastructure. We identify the inherent risks (operational, reputational, strategic, compliance, transactional), of probable threats, assess current protections, and determine residual risk levels. If our assessment determines your IT infrastructure is at undue risk, we will recommend specific mitigation strategies.
The Sage approach to assessing risk is to concentrate on the functionality, the flow of information, and the underlying technology of the defined area. Our methodology is based upon NIST 800-30 Guidance and adapted by us to meet any applicable regulatory or compliance standards. We employ a multi-step process to determine risk level, and if required, appropriate remediation recommendations. Our risk assessment is designed to evaluate the current level of risk, as well.
The report consists of an Executive Synopsis which provides an accurate picture of the risks associated with the system, application, function, or process included within the engagement. All supporting findings and control details are provided along with any applicable recommendations to reduce risk and/or enhance the security posture of your organization.
This report can serve as a foundational document for annual updates, as well as a template for future assessments.
There is no single, straight path that will get you to the point where you can say, “We did it! We’re 100% cyber-secure.”
A more realistic destination is cyber resiliency – the ability to prepare for and adapt to changing conditions, so you can withstand and recover rapidly from disruptions. Achieving cyber resilience depends on what we like to call the cybersecurity lifecycle – an ongoing cycle of interconnected elements that compliment and reinforce one another.
