Information and supporting processes, systems and networks are important assets for many organisations. These assets are often exposed to a number of threats, as a result of which organisations run certain risks. This is because an organisation may suffer serious consequences when a threat occurs. Think for example of loss of revenue, deteriorated competitiveness or reputation damage. Making and keeping these risks transparent is essential to guarantee the availability, integrity and confidentiality of information. Risk assessment is an important tool for doing this.
“A healthy and sensible consideration must be made between the risks, the measures to limit the likelihood of events and/or the impact of these events and the organisational interest.”
One of the most important parts of the information security policy of many organisations is the periodic execution of a risk assessment. Risks must be identified and, if necessary, measures must be taken to manage these risks. For the successful execution of a risk assessment it is not only necessary that the person who accompanies the assessment has the necessary knowledge of information security but also possesses the necessary skills.
