Security Risk Assessment

The Security Risk Assessment helps organisations to understand their current security posture and mitigate risks.

It systematically identifies, evaluates, and prioritises potential security risks and threats to systems, networks, and data.

It utilises the authoritative MITRE ATT&CK (Adversarial Tactics, Techniques, and Common Knowledge) framework: a comprehensive catalogue of real-world cyber threats. Used in this engagement to help organisations to assess their security risks alongside the controls against known attack tactics, techniques, and procedures.
