IT Risk Management

IT risk analyses can be carried out in different ways. The goal is always to create transparency in the first step and to derive recommendations for action and measures based on a risk assessment. In this way risks can be avoided, mitigated, transferred or accepted. In most companies, IT particularly should be given attention, not only because of legal regulations or compliance guidelines but because weaknesses in IT can have company-wide consequences.

Successful IT Risk Management

  • Detects, analyzes, evaluates and monitors IT risks on an ongoing basis
  • Develops measures and contingency plans
  • Establishes an ISMS (Information Security Management System) as well as IT governance
  • Ensures comprehensive IT security management

Your challenge

IT systems in particular and larger IT environments are complex and can thus be fault-prone. There are many risk scenarios which harbor great risks for a company. A further challenge lies in communicating to management the IT risks and measures to avoid, since management and IT usually speak different languages. This is exactly where our IT risk management comes in. Our ISO-certified methodology acts as an interpreter between IT and management, creating transparency and a common basis for decision-making through the evaluation of risks based on corporate key figures.
