Information Security Risk Assessment Score.

The data necessary to make informed risk decisions

The Information Security Risk Assessment Score enables stakeholders to speak the same language to effectively prioritize the most urgent, realistic, and expensive potential information security threats.

Providing a comprehensive information security risk assessment

The Information Security Risk Assessment Score is a comprehensive information security risk assessment designed to discover and quantify information security risk.

An industry-standard utilized by security practitioners around the country, the Information Security Risk Assessment Score builds effective information security programs and provides organizations with the data necessary to prioritize and maximize information security investments. Quantification of risk also provides the pivotal common language for security practitioners and executives to speak about risk. This allows organizations to set risk tolerance thresholds and eases the process of determining how much money to spend.

The Information Security Risk Assessment Score matches the requirements to many different standards, including HITRUST, ISO 27000-1, NIST CSF, FFIEC, NCUA, GLBA, FISMA.

The Information Security Risk Assessment Score consists of a thorough evaluation of risks within four phases: Administrative Controls, Physical Controls, Internal Technical Controls, and External Technical Controls:

Administrative Controls:

Sometimes referred to as the "human" part of information security and are controls used to govern other aspects of information security.

Physical Controls:

The security controls can often be touched and provide physical security to protect your information assets.

Internal Technical Controls:

The controls are technical and used within your organization’s technical domain (inside the gateways or firewalls).

External Technical Controls:

These are technical and are used to protect outside access to your organization’s technical domain (outside the gateways or firewalls).
