Sample IT Risk Analysis Matrix

Sample IT Risk Analysis Matrix

Which threats pose the greatest risk to your Information Systems? Which Security systems offer the greatest opportunity for improvement? And how do you communicate all of that to your senior management or Board? A CISO member of Wisegate shared an effective tool to help do all of that and more, and now a version is available to help you address those same issues.

This IT Risk Analysis Matrix provides an effective way to visualize how your key Security systems and processes measure up against the most common threats, or attack vectors. By rating the effectiveness of each Security system with a color code, and applying a simple scoring technique, it becomes easy to see where opportunities lie, and communicate that to executives – so they can make more informed decisions.

This Sample IT Risk Analysis Matrix can help you:

  • Score 25 common attack vectors to see which present the greatest risk.
  • Communicate risks and opportunities to management teams.
  • Compare overall risk posture before and after cyber hardening programs.
