Conducting a Risk Assessment Guide

Objectives

The purpose of this document is to assist the business conduct a Risk Assessment, which make out current risks and threats to the business and implement procedures to eradicate or decrease those potential risks. This document endows with guidance on how to conduct the Risk Assessment, evaluate the information that is assembled and put into practice strategies that will permit the business to manage the risk. The following documents are available to help the business complete the assessment:

  1. Risk Assessment Template
  2. Risk Assessment Worksheet
  3. Facility RA Findings Report
  4. Executive RA Findings Report
  5. Examples of Preventative Measures

The Risk Assessment is merely part one of an overall Business Assessment. A Business Assessment is alienated into two constituents, Risk Assessment and Business Impact Analysis (BIA). The Risk Assessment is intended to evaluate current vulnerabilities to the business’s environment, while the Business Impact Analysis evaluates probable loss that could result during a disaster. To maximize the Risk Assessment, a Business Impact Analysis should also be completed.

Risk Assessment Template

OBJECTIVE

Due to many regulatory compliance rule regulations, your organization must implement Business Resumption Plan, Business Continuity Plan, and Business Analysis Plan to ensure the protection of data. In order to carry out this undertaking, there are numerous steps that your organization will be carried out to detect critical business functions, processes, and applications that process vital data and to understand the potential impact to the business if a disruptive event occurred.

One of the first steps of implementing the Business Resumption Plan for your organization is to conduct a Risk Assessment (RA). This questionnaire will assist you to detect the present risks and threats to the business and put into practice measures to eradicate or lessen those potential risks. Once the survey is completed, the RA Project team will examine the data and create prioritized risk reduction (mitigation) strategies to present to senior management.

Preventative Measures

The following list contains examples of preventative measures that can be put into practice by the company to alleviate the potential risks that at present exist. Some of these activities may be achieved easily, as to where some may take more time and more resources.

Natural Risks

These risks are typically linked with weather related events: flooding, high winds, severe storms, tornado, hurricane, fire, high winds, snowstorms, and ice storms.

Risk / Threat

Preventative Measures

Earthquakes
  1. Move large and heavy objects to the fall to prevent injury (from falling on people.)
  2. Equipment tie-downs are used on all critical computer equipment.
  3. Emergency power is available on-site.
  4. Earthquake construction guidelines have been adhered to so that damage can be minimized.
  5. Critical data and vital records should be backed up and sent offsite for storage.
  6. Staff should be trained in Earthquake evacuations and safety.

Man-Made Risks

These risks are typically linked with the man-made type of events: Bomb threats, vandalism, terrorism, civil disorder, sabotage, hazardous waste, work stoppage (internal/external), and computer crime.

Risk / Threat

Preventative Measures

Staff Productivity Risks
  1. Alternate sources of trained employees have been identified
  2. Proper training and necessary cross-training are conducted
  3. Files are backed up and procedures are documented
  4. The work areas are comfortable and safe

 

Environmental Risks

These risks are typically linked with exposures from surrounding facilities, businesses, government agencies, etc.

Risk / Threat

Preventative Measures

Hazardous Materials Plant
  1. There is a nightly backup of data processing electronic record and that backup is stored off-site
  2. The off-site backup facility is a sufficient distance away from this facility
  3. An alternate site has been identified for use in the event that this facility is unusable

Natural Risks

These risks are typically linked with weather related events: flooding, high winds, severe storms, tornado, hurricane, fire, high winds, snowstorms, and ice storms. In each RA Survey, the facilities manager was asked to identify potential natural risks and rate the severity of each.

Summary of Natural Risks

For the location of this facility and historical weather patterns, it has been stated that pose the biggest threat.

How the risk ranking was determined: Overall Risk = Probability * Severity (Magnitude – Mitigation)

Risk Analysis Policy

Objective

The Risk Analysis (RA) Policy document establishes the activities that require being carried out by each Business Unit, Technology Unit, and Corporate Units (departments) within the organization.

All departments must use this methodology to detect present risks and threats to the business and put into practice measures to eradicate or decrease those potential risks.

Applications and Data Criticality Analysis Template

Objective

The intention of the Application & Data Criticality Analysis is to determine the criticality to covered entity of all application based components and the potential losses which may be incurred if these components were not available for a period of time. This questionnaire is designed to collect the information necessary to support the development of alternative processing strategies, solutions and IS Recovery plans.

The Business Impact Analysis (BIA) should be fulfilled prior to this engagement. The outcome of the BIA should be used to assess technology requirements based on the business needs.

This questionnaire also serves as a compliance method for meeting many regulatory compliance rule requirements for Application & Data Criticality Analysis.
