Security Risk Assessments - Why Every Business Needs One

 

As companies connect to the internet, they not only avail of the benefits of internet connectivity but if not managed properly, this connection can disclose internal information to the outside world. This information in the wrong hands poses a significant risk to the companies. In order to understand the Cyber/IT security posture of a company, the most basic way is to conduct a security risk assessment.
