Risk Analysis

Risk Analysis

A risk analysis is an exercise focused on discovering, as its own name implies, risks/threats and the preparation of an action and continuous improvement plan to cover or reduce them to an acceptable level by the company.

Why?

In many cases, companies are aware that they must improve their security, but they do not know where to start. In such cases, the trend is generally to invest resources in various security solutions as a patch, which is a consequence of not having a proper strategy for improving security. The usefulness of risk analysis is precisely to avoid these situations, making companies aware of their weaknesses based on plausible threats and a clear strategy for improvement.

How?

We work with international methodologies such as MAGERIT, OCTANE, ISO 27005.
However, in general, risk analysis projects are performed by achieving three well-defined phases consisting of:

  1. Asset location and analysis
    Identify, list and categorize information (client value assets) and the processes involved in them, i.e. to know where information circulates, how it is processed and how it is stored.
  2. Identification of threats
    Once assets are located and categorized, it is necessary to identify potential threats that may affect them. Subsequently, the threats are categorized according to their impact and probability.
  3. Improvement Plan
    Once the asset to protect and its threats are known, it is time to design an improvement plan in order to address the main security breaches identified. This plan will also provide Transmural the prevention, detection and response capacity to future threats.

Results and Benefits

In short, taking advantage of the exercise transforming it into improvements for the company.
