What is Risk Management?

Risk Management (RM) is the process of identifying potential risks, assessing the impact of those risks, and planning how to respond if the risks become reality.

Setting Up your RM System

The Company needs to determine what assets it needs to protect and prioritize. As the US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) points out in its Framework for Improving Critical Infrastructure Cyber security, there is no one-size-fits all solution. Different organizations have different technology infrastructures and different potential risks. Some organizations such as financial services firms and healthcare organizations have regulatory in addition to business concerns that need to be addresses in a Cyber security RM system. Cyber security should follow a layered approach, with additional protections for the most important assets, such as corporate and customer data.

ISO 27001

The ISO 27001 defines five steps that are needed for managing Cyber security Risk and seven steps that must be followed for carrying out a Risk Assessment. They are as follows:

  • Risk identification

  • Vulnerability reduction

  • Threat reduction

  • Consequence mitigation

  • Enable cyber security outcome

ISO 27001 requires the organization to define the risk acceptance criteria and the criteria for performing security risk assessments:

  • Identify risks associated with the loss of confidentiality, availability and integrity of information within the scope of the Information Security Management System (ISMS)

  • Identify the risk owners.

  • Assess the consequences that may result if an identified risk materializes.

  • Assess the likelihood of that risk occurring.

  • Determine the level of the risk.

  • Compare the results of the analysis against the risk criteria.

  • Prioritize the risks for treatment.

Analyzing and Fixing Risk through RM

There are few ways to approach and treat risk in RM. They are given below :


This entails changing plans to eliminate a risk. This strategy is good for risks that could potentially have a significant impact on a business or project.


Transfer is applicable to projects with multiple parties. It is not used frequently and often includes insurance. Transfer is also known as “Risk Sharing”.


Mitigation is limiting the impact of a risk so that if a problem occurs it will be easier to fix. This is the most common and also known as “Optimizing risk” or “Risk reduction”.


Some risks are good; such as if a product is popular there is not enough staff to keep up with sales. In such a case, the risk can be exploited by adding more sales staff.

Management should ensure that these risk identification activities are performed to determine the Company’s information security risk profile.
