For any comprehensive IT strategy, IT risk analysis is vastly important. Early identification is a crucial step towards avoiding or mitigating damages to an organization’s IT infrastructure. This task is as delicate and challenging as it is important. With Affinity Technology Partners’s Complete Care Partnership, you will receive managed IT solutions that will help you identify and respond to IT risks that threaten your business.

Performing an IT Risk Analysis

Here at Affinity Technology Partners, IT risk analysis is a critical part of your business’s overall IT risk assessment. It covers identifying potential threats, estimating risks, as well as managing and mitigating those risks. We do more than fill you in on the state of your IT infrastructure security; we also help you make informed decisions around your organizational IT security strategy.

Identify Security Threats and Vulnerabilities to Your IT Infrastructure

We will locate any potential threats or vulnerabilities in your current IT system before they can be exploited and before they can cause damage. Potential threats can range from technical and financial to human and natural. Once these are determined, we can advise as to which actions should be taken to fix these vulnerabilities and reduce your risk of breach.

Estimating IT Risks

Once potential threats have been identified, we will help you determine the level of risk they pose. This is done by estimating the likelihood of an event happening or by utilizing a risk impact/probability chart. We will then calculate the risk value of potential threats (risk value = probability of event x cost of event) and use this information to help you make informed decisions around prioritizing risk mitigation and management.

Managing IT Risks

Risk management and mitigation revolve around taking measures to tackle possible IT threats. Below are key types of management measures to consider based on your determined risks:

  1. Preventive: These measures identify threats or vulnerabilities before they occur so that a security team can take the necessary next steps to prevent damage.

  2. Mitigation: Mitigation ensures that threats have minimal impact on your entire IT infrastructure.

  3. Recovery: Recovery operations allow you to get back up and running so your company can resume business as usual following a security breach or damaging threat.
