KYND – CRIF’s Cyber Risk Assessment Reports
A crucial part of any diligent company’s risk management strategy inevitably involves cyber crime assessment. Most organizations today rely on technology and information systems to conduct their business but not without accepting their share of inherent risks. This is why there is also a counteractive system in place known as cyber crime assessment. Let us know what a cyber risk assessment is.
Risk assessments are not new to businesses and are conducted in one form or another since the beginning of the trade – the method just keeps getting sophisticated as we progress. According to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), Risk assessments are used to identify, estimate, and prioritize risk to organizational operations (i.e., mission, functions, image, and reputation), organizational assets, individuals, other organizations, and the Nation, resulting from the operation and use of information systems. The primary purpose of a cyber risk assessment is to support well-informed decision making and develop risk responses. There are a number of reasons you might want to perform a cyber risk assessment:
Provides security & prevents unnecessary losses-
When you identify potential risks and work towards mitigating them, what you are essentially doing is avoiding an occurrence of a financial loss and also image loss. A well-done cyber risk analysis can improve your security implementations and mitigate attacks and personal data breaches.
Provides a roadmap for future assessments-
Cyber risk assessment is a continuous process and has to be updated timely. Doing it once can help you identify a template for future assessments.
Heightened organizational self-awareness-
understanding your organizations’ weakness gives you a clearer direction to work towards improvement, growth, and investment areas.
Typically a cyber risk assessment involves gathering inputs from a number of different departments and stakeholders. This in turn helps increase organizational visibility and enhance communication.
