What is a Risk Assessment?

Easily identify security program gaps and prioritize investment

Secure Shield offers a comprehensive risk assessment designed to discover and quantify information security risk. An industry standard used by security practitioners around the country, our methodology helps inform effective security programs and allows organizations to prioritize and maximize investments. Quantification of risk provides a common language for security practitioners and executives to speak about risk. This allows organizations to understand their current standing, where they want to be, and how to get there.
