Why You Need A Risk Assessment and Where You Should Start

A common question that I am always asked is “Why do I need to have a risk assessment?”  The answer will forever and always be the same: Because you don’t know what you don’t know.

Now, risk assessments can be an intimidating process and sometimes even feel over-whelming.  You just have to remember that the goal is to find out where you can mitigate potential issues in your business.

If you are not sure where to start, consider having a Vulnerability Assessment performed on your network.  Also, have your Policies and Procedures looked at for gaps, and if you don’t have any currently in place, get recommendations on which ones your type of business needs.  Maybe even, start with a social engineering test, such as a Phishing Campaign, to see if you need to build up your Security Awareness Program.
