Conduct a Cyber Risk Assessment

Assess your Firm’s Cybersecurity practices based on regulatory requirements, industry frameworks, and risks specific to your business.

Why a Risk Assessment?

Regular cybersecurity risk assessments are imperative to assure regulators, investors, and board members that your firm is protecting and managing confidential data correctly and in the most prudent manner possible.

According to NIST, risk assessments are used to identify, estimate, and prioritize risk to organizational operations (i.e., mission, functions, image, and reputation), organizational assets, individuals, and other organizations, resulting from the operation and use of information systems.


Document Your Risks

The purpose of a cyber risk assessment is to help management make informed decisions about security. The way to do that is to identify the following:

Relevant threats to the organization

Technology risks to the organization

Control risks to the organization

Gaps in the organization’s cybersecurity program

Roadmap to meeting industry frameworks, cyber regulations, and best practices
