Risk Assessment Development and Mitigation
Risk Assessments (RA) and Cost/Benefit Analysis (CBA) are the foundation in which all security programs are based. In order to bring maximum value to the customer a risk assessment is conducted, assets are verified, threats and vulnerabilities are studied, and the risk quantified based on the customer’s priorities and needs. The RA provides a basis for determining what needs to be done to prevent or minimize the loss to the your vital assets. The CBA assists the customer in the decision making process as to the balance of security versus the yearly cost. The RA is the foundation of all security programs, and allows customers to conduct a factual CBA, as well as accept risk and project security budgets in a logical and methodical manner.
Risk assessments may be conducted on personnel, facilities, activities/events and employee travel.
