Risk Assessment

In today’s tech world, risk is inherent. The purpose of a risk assessment is to identify events that could negatively impact your department and the university. Data breaches, ransomware and hurricanes are all very real threats, and it is imperative to be aware of and prepare for these hazards. ITS will work with your department to proactively assess cyberthreats, network vulnerabilities, data regulations and other possible impacts. The process identifies weaknesses and establishes baseline security controls. Departments then receive a customized plan of the best and most cost-effective mitigations.
