Our Approach

IT risk management process
Effective information security risk management process

A systematic approach to managing IT security is most effective when it is flexible enough to account for differences among organizations and networks. Working closely with our clients, we carry out IT risk assessments and design solutions that are both custom-made and follow proven risk management procedures.

The first step is to identify risks, followed closely by risk analysis. At this stage we leverage our expertise together with our clients’ extensive knowledge of the organization and system to determine which threats exist and how likely they are to occur. We answer the questions, “What are the risks?” and “What is the probability of occurrence?”

The next step involves prioritizing and assessing the risks. Again, close cooperation with our clients is essential here, as the potential consequences of an incident are cataloged, and risks categorized accordingly. Once priorities have been agreed on, our team can turn to controlling, managing and treating risks. Protective measures can take a variety of forms, from technological interventions to insurance to structural modifications.

The final step, monitoring and reviewing, is an ongoing process involving documentation and reporting as well as developing strategies to revisit the foregoing steps on a regular basis.

Drawing on this basic framework, we empower our clients to establish a robust and sustainable information security risk management system.
