Cyber Security Threat and Risk Assessments
Threat, vulnerability and impact assessments
Cyber threats originate from many different sources, each with their own goals and agendas. Many criminals focus on financial gain via cyber attacks, targeting intellectual property or bank accounts. Other hackers have non-financial motivations: some may be looking to embarrass the target business or simply prove their skills.
With so many potential cyber threats, the challenge that most businesses face is where and how to concentrate security resources to protect what matters most to them. Good security practice will, in most cases, stop a volume hacker, but if you own particularly valuable digital assets then you should anticipate and prepare for targeted attacks.
To be at their most effective, cyber security defences need to focus on the areas where attackers are most likely to strike. This can only be achieved by carrying out a full threat assessment on your business in order to:
- Identify the assets that are of value to attackers and who the attackers are likely to be, as well as understanding their skills, resources and motivation.
- Acknowledge where the potential vulnerabilities lie in your organisation.
It is also important to assess the impact on the business of each specific threat identified, which is known as an impact assessment. Once you have the results of the threat, vulnerability and impact assessments, you can combine them to quantify the risk to the business. This process is referred to as a risk assessment.
