Risk Management & Assessment | SITS

Closing the Gaps and Minimizing the Risks

“Work from anywhere” and cloud-based working environments open up completely new attack vectors for cyber criminals. Attacks on companies’ IT systems can lead to production outages, loss of trust, sanctions and therefore high costs. It is therefore important to prevent risks and comply with current security standards.

Risk Management & Assessment allows company IT threats to be analyzed, assessed and evaluated. Good management includes the following elements:

  • Assessment of the current status: Identification of vulnerabilities and identification and implementation of compliance requirements and guidelines
  • Cyber security roadmap: development of a roadmap for regular assessments of the IT infrastructure, 360° analysis in the form of a managed service and training programs for employees
  • Implementation of emergency plans: clearly defined processes for all areas of the company as part of business continuity management in order to maintain ongoing business operations in the case of an emergency

Expect the Unexpected

Identify unknown vulnerabilities at an early stage

Employees working from remote offices, data in the cloud, networked IT structures: these are just some of the many exposed paths that enable attacks on a company’s business processes. Risk Management & Assessment helps to assess and evaluate these and other threats and initiate preventive countermeasures.

What is Risk Management?
Top Reasons for Risk Management
This is what Risk Management is about
Identification and evaluation of potential vulnerabilities in your IT
Risk management in the field of cyber security means identifying, assessing and controlling digital risks such as vulnerabilities in the infrastructure and among employees, as well as liability and compliance issues.

Careful preparation for an emergency is crucial: this enables companies to reduce serious consequences of attacks such as operational downtime or financial losses, but also to mitigate minor disruptions to operational processes.

The development of risk management processes includes employees, the IT infrastructure and the company's internal processes. Security assessments such as penetration tests are also required to proactively identify and eliminate vulnerabilities.

Top motivations for Risk Management
1. Strategic preparation for security threats: With over 23,000 new vulnerabilities discovered each year, endpoints, cloud solutions and networks are more vulnerable than ever. This applies to employees, partners and all of a company's technologies.

2. Standards and laws as a strategic compass: Active risk management, anchored in international standards such as NIS2, ISO 27001 or PCI DSS , forms the backbone of corporate management and supports strategic alignment. However, non-compliance with regulations leads to sanctions and unforeseeable financial consequences.

3. Emergency processes: In the event of a cyber attack, predefined processes must take effect and employees must be able to act immediately.

4. Comprehensive risk assessment: This raises awareness of cyber security throughout the company and promotes preventive behavior to strengthen security.

Successful Risk Management solutions consist of:
1. Detection of vulnerabilities: The RMA identifies security flaws in the IT infrastructure and prepares a risk assessment, recommendations for action and regular reports. Pentesting and red teaming are also used to systematically identify IT security risks.

2. Compliance checks: These ensure compliance with IT security standards, such as ISO standards or NIS.

3. Business continuity in an in an emergency: During and after an attack, business continuity teams ensure the smooth continuation of business operations.

4. Awareness training: Phishing simulations and other awareness training courses sharpen employees' security awareness and are designed to test human factors.
