Inferno Systems: Delivering Quick and Effective Security Assessments

Top 10 Security Assessment Consulting/Service Companies - 2020

Today, common challenges to effectively performing risk assessments are similar in nearly all organizations, but the strategies implemented to identify and prevent these challenges is unique to every organization. Sincere, thoughtful and authentic evaluation of risks facing an entire enterprise or a business segment enables appropriate identification of impending threats. Such a process of risk assessment works as an offensive discipline that helps to create a robust risk mitigation framework. Efficient implementation of a risk-adjusted mitigation strategy creates a competitive advantage that brings superior returns.

While organizations everywhere recognize that a robust risk assessment methodology is essential to ensure and sustain prolonged profitable performance, the majority are perilously happy limiting their risk assessment responsibility to ticking check boxes.

Challenges abound, but so do remedies and opportunities. What requires is a well-intentioned change of perception and technological assistance. It’s time that enterprises begin to view risk assessment not as a hurdle but as a complementary discipline that creates and adds value in sustaining business performance in a risk-intensive world. Businesses should follow a practical and easy to understand risk assessment process and accomplish it repeatedly. Ineffective risk assessment resulting in inept risk management strategy has accounted for some, if not all!, of the largest economic losses ever experienced in the corporate history. Frankly, enterprises that suffer are the ones that fail to create a solid business case for risk assessment due to their defensive strategy.

Creating a comfortable risk culture where stakeholders and employees participate in open heart discussion to find and reveal true risks goes a long way in securing an organization against ever-evolving threats. This step can be complemented by conducting informal in-person interviews. Create accountability by ensuring voluntary participation and diligently implement risk findings with a sure knowledge that risk assessment is the mainstay of an effective ERM program.
