    What is a cybersecurity risk assessment?
    According to ISO 27001 – an internationally recognised cybersecurity standard – a cybersecurity risk assessment is the “overall process of risk identification, risk analysis and risk evaluation,”

    What is the purpose of a security risk assessment?
    Every organisation faces threats to its security that have the potential to keep it from meeting successful business outcomes. A full cybersecurity risk assessment will give you the confidence that the full suite of risks that your business faces has been considered and could help your organisation take steps to mitigate them.

    How do you carry out security assessments?
    Any effective risk assessment requires the experience and expertise to choose an appropriate baseline for assessment. The baseline is usually one of a set of widely recognised industry standards, including Cyber Essentials, NCSC’s 10 Steps to Cyber Security, NCSC’s Cyber Assessment Framework and ISO 27001. Importantly, we will also cover the gaps that some of these frameworks may miss, but are also crucial to the safety of your network environment.

    A suitable assessment methodology then needs to be chosen alongside the framework. For example, you may choose to carry out a gap assessment against the baseline, looking for areas in which your organisation needs to improve. 

    Our security experts have years of experience that enable them to choose the correct framework and methodology for a security assessment that best fits the needs of your business. 

    We use a wide range of security assessment tools and techniques to determine a view of the cybersecurity posture of an organisation. An organisation’s posture includes both the threats it faces and its ability to respond to them. Leading on from the assessment we can provide mitigation advice and develop security improvement plans.

    A cybersecurity assessment by CWL Systems has two primary benefits:

    The first is the confidence that the full suite of risks facing your business has been considered in a structured assessment. This is important for your client and stakeholder confidence, as well as compliance requirements.

    The second benefit is more practical. A full security assessment can identify areas in which your organisation needs to improve. Your organisation can then take steps towards those improvements itself or you can continue to work with us to implement specific targeted security solutions. Our methodology means that we will ensure that any solutions we implement meet both your business and security goals.
