This risk assessment template document endows with guidance on how to conduct the Risk Assessment, evaluate the information that is collected and put into practice strategies that will permit the business to manage the risk.

The Risk Assessment is merely a division one of an overall Business Assessment. A Business Assessment is separated into two constituents, Risk Assessment and Business Impact Analysis (BIA). The Risk Assessment is intended to evaluate present 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.

OBJECTIVE

Due to many regulatory compliance authority regulations, your organization must implement Business Resumption, Business Continuity, and Business Impact Analysis Planning Practices to make sure the protection of data is intact. In order to achieve this undertaking, there are numerous steps that your organization will be carried out to discover critical business functions, processes, and applications that process critical 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, Business Continuity and Business Impact plan for your organization is to conduct a Risk Assessment (RA). This questionnaire will facilitate you to make out the existing risks and threats to the business and implement procedures to eradicate or trim down those potential risks. Once the survey is completed, the RA Project team will analyze the data and create prioritized risk reduction (mitigation) strategies to present to senior management.
