Why information security risk assessment?

A systematic approach to information security risk management is necessary to identify organizational needs regarding information security requirements and to create an effective Information Security Management System (ISMS). Every organization is different and therefore, it is important that ISMS should be aligned with organization’s environment and specifically its enterprise risk management. The security effort should address risks in an effective and timely manner where and when they are needed. Risk assessment is the first process in any information security risk management program helps identify the relevant risks and the appropriate controls for reducing or eliminating these identified risks.

Information security risk assessment

It determines the value of an information assets, identifies the applicable threats and vulnerabilities that exist (or could exist), identifies the existing controls and their effect on the risks identified, determines the potential consequences and finally prioritizes them.
