Cybersecurity Risk Assessment – Protecting Your Business Matters
Locate Your Weak Points Now to Protect Your Business’s Future
Managing your risks is how you ensure your business’s success is never compromised, and cybersecurity risk assessment is a necessity.
Did You Know?
Nearly half of all businesses are the target of cyberattacks. Experts are anticipating that the cost of cybercrime is going to be an upward of $6 trillion by the time 2021. Statistically speaking, a cyberattack takes place every 39 seconds, per a study by the University of Maryland.
Is cybersecurity risk assessment something you should seriously consider? Absolutely. Data breaches have become so commonplace that it could happen to you. The biggest mistake a business makes is assuming it will never happen to them. But this relaxed approach is exactly what cybercriminals are looking to take advantage of.
What Cybersecurity Risk Assessment Involves?
You need to protect your business and a cybersecurity risk assessment is your first step towards understanding what your current weak points are. Based on the assessment, you’ll know which areas need fixing and what you could do about it.
The assessment will identify which of your devices and data is the most important. It will look at how hackers could potentially gain access. It also looks at what potential risks you stand to incur if your data is breached. You could perform an analysis of your own, but the expertise of a professional risk assessment team could help strengthen your defences even more.
Ideally, a risk assessment should happen once every two years. Here’s what a team of experts will do for you:
- Gather information on what your current framework is and pinpoint where the vulnerabilities are.
- Determine the way your system works and who uses the current system.
- A thorough assessment of your identifiable risks and how to mitigate them.
- Run vulnerability scans to identify and detect risks across several aspects of your network.
- Testing employee responses too, because sometimes vulnerability could be related to human error.
- Understand the potential impact in the event your system does get breached.
