A 7-Step Risk Assessment Framework for Cybersecurity Professionals

Your how-to guide to conduct risk assessments that protect your data, systems, and reputation.

Cybersecurity threats are on the rise—attacks on businesses have increased in frequency by 49% and severity by 43% over the past 12 months, according to a recent VikingCloud market survey report.

And those are only the reported breaches we know about. Our research also found that 40% of cyber teams have intentionally not reported cyber incidents because they worried about losing their jobs.      

The biggest security risk is the same as it has always been—people. Hackers leverage social engineering to trick users into giving out credentials or clicking on links.  

In this white paper, VikingCloud’s Sr. Director of Product Management for Managed Security Services, Tyler Owen, shares recommended steps to perform a cyber risk assessment and analysis to identify your organization’s vulnerabilities and threats and how to mitigate them.

Best practice steps include:

  • Step 1: Identify Your Crown Jewels
  • Step 2: Assess Your Attack Surface
  • Step 3: Rank—and Mitigate—Your Risks
  • Step 4: Review and Automate Your Policies
  • Step 5: Assess the Perimeter
  • Step 6: Evaluate Cloud Usage
  • Step 7: Educate Your Users
