Fundamentals of Threats and Risk Management Training

risk management

Cybersecurity risk management takes the idea of real world risk management and applies it to the cyberworld.

It involves identifying your risks and vulnerabilities and applying administrative actions and comprehensive solutions to make sure your organization is adequately protected.

In general, an organization needs to determine what assets it needs to protect and prioritize them before setting up a cybersecurity risk management system. According to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in its Framework for Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity, there is no one-size-fits all solution. Different organizations have different technology infrastructures and different potential risks.

Some organizations such as financial services firms and healthcare organizations have regulatory concerns in addition to business concerns that need to be addressed in a cybersecurity risk management system.

These days it’s crucial for every organization, no matter the size or industry, to develop a cybersecurity management plan.

Cybersecurity pros often recommend that organizations follow the Capability Maturity Model approach for risk management assessments:

  • Initial: The starting point for use of a new or undocumented repeat process
  • Repeatable: The process is at least documented sufficiently such that repeating the same steps may be attempted
  • Defined: The process is defined and confirmed as a standard business process
  • Managed: The process is quantitatively managed in accordance with agreed-upon metrics
  • Optimizing: The process management includes deliberate process optimization/improvement.

With the desired risk posture identified, examine the enterprise technology infrastructure to determine a baseline for the current risk posture and what the enterprise needs to do to move from the current state to the desired state of risk exposure.

However, even small security vulnerabilities can lead to large losses if network systems are connected in such a way that intrusion into an unimportant area can provide an unauthorized entry into more important systems and more sensitive data.

An  important aspect of cybersecurity risk management often overlooked is implementing an evolving risk assessment. An organization’s entire risk management process should be reviewed on a regular basis and changed as new technologies are introduced into the company or organization.

New technologies could affect where sensitive data is stored and as more tools are integrated into the organization’s processes, there is more risk for data to fall into the wrong hands.

Additionally, keep in mind that IT systems are continually being updated, software applications are being replaced and updated with newer versions, and the human aspect is also changing, putting weight on training new personnel with evolving security policies that affect existing employees.

New risks will surface and risks previously mitigated may be reborn into new vulnerabilities. All in all, your risk management process must be ongoing and evolving to combat new and existing threats.
