Cybersecurity Risk Assessment

Cybersecurity Risk Assessments for Businesses

The primary goal of a cybersecurity risk assessment is to improve your security maturity. When our security experts perform risk analytics for cybersecurity, they’re looking for red flags and gaps in your cybersecurity plan. They look at your network holistically, considering all software, hardware and human components in order to provide a comprehensive picture of your organization’s key risk factors.  

What is a Cyber Risk Assessment?

Cybersecurity risk management and cyber risk assessments are an essential part of protecting your organization 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 cyber security risks? 

Cybersecurity risks for businesses may include: 

Improper or incomplete incident response plans

Insufficient business continuity plans

Insufficient end-user security training

Inappropriate password management

A lack of physical security controls around sensitive data storage

And more

These risks can lead to industry compliance infractions, data breaches, and general network vulnerability.

How do you conduct a cybersecurity risk assessment?

After purchasing a risk assessment from Abiding Solutions, we will schedule a project kick-off meeting to review the risk assessment process and introduce you to your assessment lead. 

Abiding Solutions' risk assessment specialist will take the perspective of an unbiased, independent third-party evaluator and investigate various departments of your business to find security gaps. This assessment can be conducted virtually or in-person, and typically runs 3-4 days. 

The results and recommendations from the assessment are combined into an executive summary report that includes both a qualitative measure of your cyber risk, as well as a report of identified risks and prioritized steps to understanding your organization’s most critical issues.
