IT Risk Assessments
Ensure Your Assets are Protected
IT risk assessments assist organizations in identifying and evaluating vulnerabilities and threats, understanding the probability of occurrence of those events, determining the potential impact to the business, and making preliminary determination as to the effectiveness of the controls in-place. In many cases, a risk assessment is a necessary step in order to ensure that an organization is in compliance with their regulatory requirements. A detailed risk assessment is a fundamental piece of an effectively designed risk-based audit plan.
Our approach to conducting a risk assessment starts with a collaborative meeting between stakeholders and the Technology Risk team to understand your business. Then, we will review documentation, systems, and interview process owners to identify potential vulnerabilities and threats. We will work with management to determine the potential organizational impacts of “what could go wrong” and the likelihood of those events occurring. Finally, we will present your company with an assessment that paints an accurate picture of your current IT risk posture, identifies any gaps in your internal control framework, and recommends remediation strategies on how to address those items.
