Is Your Business cyber Safe?

An IT Risk Assessment can help you understand where your business’ cybersecurity is at, where your vulnerabilities are and what you can do to protect yourself. 

Our assessments are run using the ACSC Essential 8 recommendations and NIST security framework methodologies.


why do an it risk assessment

Identify Security Threats & Vulnerabilities 

Conducting an IT risk assessment can help identify vulnerabilities in your existing IT infrastructure and applications, before they are exploited by hackers. Action can then be taken to fix these, reducing your IT risk and the potential impact of a Cybersecurity breach.

Enhance Security Policies

By tying IT risk to your risk management policies, it can help create a Cybersecurity culture. This will improve your overall security and help identify what security strategies best suit your business.

Gauge Security Awareness 

An IT risk assessment will involve your IT team (whether internal or outsourced), and members of other teams. This will help you understand how much your business understands cybersecurity and which teams need training. A common outcome of our IT risk assessments is training to improve staff awareness. You can start by sharing our Cyber Security training video with your team.
