Risk Assessment

A Risk Assessment is critical for understanding the various threats to your IT systems, determining the level of risk these systems are exposed to, and recommending the appropriate level of protection. Hitachi Systems Security’s Risk Assessments provide analysis and interpretation of the risks present in your organizational and technical environment. The objective of this analysis is to provide you with relevant information necessary to make an informed decision as to how to best manage the identified risks.

Ensure that you are not introducing new risks after adding new applications or systems to your environment, making modifications to your existing IT environment, or sharing information with new external entities.
