Risk Assessment is the first step in a cyber security strategy.

For us at Skybackbone Risk analysis is the fundamental tool that makes it possible to clearly identify the threats to information assets, assess their impact and provide input to define and implement a risk treatment plan.

Risk Assessment shows you clearly “what to protect and from which threats” and lays the foundations for the Risk Treatment.

The latter establishes the quantity of data/assets to protect and the right procedures to tackle threats, in order to balance corrective actions with respect to costs and investments.

At Skybackbone, based on the guidelines: ISO/IEC 27001:2013, ISO/IEC 29100:2011, BS 7799 and on the recent UE 2016/679, we were able to engineering a risk assessment service with a well defined pricing strategy and short execution time.

Our analysis evaluate the risks on the confidentiality, integrity and availability of the information assets, it underlines the riskiest one and the one which can have more impact on the business processes.

Therefor we are also able to easily write the “Treatment Register” by identifying the different kind of data present, the application of the minimum requirements and the potential needs of a DPIA.

This is because also from the point of view of the GDPR compliance, the risk analysis plays a key role in all the process.

In fact the Risk Analysis becomes also the tool which aims to demonstrate the correctness of the implemented measures in order to protect the treated data.

Moreover the analysis document proposes a remediation plan with the objectives to minimize and/or limit the residual risk.
