Sometimes, the words “cyber risk” and “cyber threat” are mistakenly used as synonyms. In fact,  a cyber threat is a security incident that may occur due to a vulnerability within the IT environment: e.g., a successful social engineering attack or unintentional data exposure due to poor security awareness of the employees. Cyber risk is the potential adverse impact a cybersecurity incident may have on a company, such as financial and reputational losses, lawsuits, etc. Cyber threat assessment is an integral part of cybersecurity risk assessment and management.

Frequent Questions About Cyber Risk Assessment, Answered

How often should an enterprise perform risk assessment in cybersecurity?

Companies should undergo cyber risk assessment at regular intervals at least once in 2 years. However, depending on the size of your company and its business activity, it may be necessary to evaluate your cyber risks every 6 or 12 months.

How can we be sure that a third-party vendor will understand our business specifics and identify all, including the least obvious, IT threats targeting our company?

For decades, ScienceSoft has provided IT services to companies in different domains, including the high-risk ones: healthcare IT, banking and finance, energy, manufacturing, retail, etc. For each specific project, we appoint specialists with relevant industry expertise. Plus, we combine various assessment techniques to get a full view of vulnerabilities and potential threats a company is exposed to.

What is the difference between cyber security risk assessment and vulnerability assessment?

Cyber risk assessment analyses the likelihood and impact of IT security threats a company may face due to its business and IT environment specifics. An integral part of comprehensive risk assessment, vulnerability assessment identifies technical security weaknesses that expose the company’s IT assets to cyber threats.

How does cybersecurity risk management differ from cyber risk assessment?

Cyber risk assessment is the initial phase of risk management. After the risks are identified and prioritized, the next step is to define and implement the necessary risk mitigation measures: e.g., access control policies, network monitoring tools, etc. At ScienceSoft, we not only evaluate but also help manage enterprise cyber risks. Our competent team of information security consultants and engineers, and software developers is ready to implement any required security controls to keep cyber threats away.
