Cybersecurity Risk Assessments

A cyber risk assessment company helps an organization set a baseline understanding of how mature their cybersecurity program is and where the critical gaps are. The primary goal of the cyber risk assessment is to document the existing state of the cybersecurity organization and its risks. This program collects the relevant documents around strategy and builds an inventory of existing systems, applications, hardware, software, processes, and procedures.

What is a Cyber Risk Assessment?

Cyber risk assessments are an essential part of an organization’s cybersecurity risk management strategy and helps protect from outside threats and data breaches. A robust cyber risk assessment program will involve collecting relevant strategic documents and policies and building an inventory of existing systems, applications, hardware, software, processes, and procedures. Along with knowledge and understanding of common cybersecurity risks for businesses, risk assessments bring together all relevant information in order to provide actionable insights for fortifying your network and systems.

What are the most common cybersecurity risks?

Cybersecurity risks for businesses may include: 

  1. Improper or incomplete incident response plans
  2. Insufficient business continuity plans
  3. Insufficient end-user security training
  4. Inappropriate password management
  5. A lack of physical security controls around sensitive data storage
  6. And much more

These risks can lead to industry compliance infractions, data breaches, and general network vulnerability. Start with a cybersecurity risk assessment to stay on top of your cybersecurity risk management.

Why do companies do cybersecurity risk assessments?

Businesses use cyber risk assessments as an opportunity to educate employees. Training staff to be aware of potential cyber threats, including what cyber threats look like, where they may come from, and how they can impact their roles is an important step in protecting your company.

Undocumented, unenforced, or outdated security controls threaten a business’ compliance position and integrity. ProCircular’s risk assessment is designed to shine a light on the most critical and treatable risks within an organization so that you can take steps to improve your cybersecurity plans and processes.
Cyber risk assessment companies, like ProCircular, can assist leadership in making informed decisions regarding cybersecurity infrastructure and can help create a cybersecurity incident response plan.
