Enterprise Risk Assessment

A structured approach to enabling cyber resilience

The concept of cyber resilience encompasses an organization’s ability to continuously serve its clients regardless of the cyber events it faces.  The foundational elements of establishing and maintaining cyber resilience is understanding the organization’s current cyber risk posture, identifying its desired cyber risk posture, and developing a roadmap to ensure cyber risk reduction and overall enterprise cyber risk management.  To accomplish this, organizations need to take a structured approach to identify those assets, business processes, and controls that support continuous delivery of services.  Once identified, the threats, potential threat actors, vulnerabilities, procedural weaknesses need to be analyzed for potential impact on the organization.  Leveraging this approach enables the organization to understand its current risk posture, allow management to make informed decisions on risk treatment and support its journey toward true cyber resilience.
