Security Risk

Know where the
risks are.

Get an objective assessment of
your information security risk.

Evaluate your security risk program against common industry security standards.

Organizations rely on their information, systems and networks to support customers and employees. Meanwhile, attackers search for ways to compromise these assets. As your industry threat profile and attack surfaces change, it can be difficult to know if your people, processes and technology are up to the task.

Verizon’s Security Risk Assessment is designed to provide you with an objective assessment of your information security risk through a detailed analysis of key business systems. The outcome is a clear understanding of the risks associated with your sensitive data and recommendations to reduce the risk of compromise.

What is Security Risk Assessment?

The Security Risk Assessment evaluates your information security controls against your choice of six common security standards. We combine that with underlying data analysis from the industry-recognized Data Breach Investigations Report to assign a risk rating score for each selected business system.

How does  the Security Risk Assessment work?

It employs a NIST-based risk methodology where risk is calculated based on the likelihood of a system breach, and the business impact such a breach would have on the customer. The final report details the likelihood of a system being compromised and offers recommendations to help close the gaps and reduce identified risks.
