Threat and Risk Assessment

Threat and Risk Assessment

A Threat and Risk Assessment (TRA) is a critical tool 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.

If you are adding new applications or systems to your environment, making modifications to your existing Information Technology environment, or sharing information with new external entities, then you should perform a TRA on the new components to ensure that you are not introducing new risks. Periodic TRAs on existing environments are required, since the threat landscape continually changes and so do the vulnerabilities in your environment.
