Risk Assessment

Organizations use risk assessment in determining the extent of potential risks or threat associated with the system throughout its software development life cycle. The output of this process helps in identifying the appropriate controls that can be used to control the risk. Risk assessment methodology that we follow has nine steps:

Step 1: System Characterization

Step 2: Threat Identification

Step 3: Vulnerability Identification

Step 4: Control Analysis

Step 5: Likelihood Determination

Step 6: Impact analysis

Step 7: Risk Determination

Step 8: Control Recommendation

Step 9: Results Documentation

Benefits of risk assessment:

  • Reduce incidents in the work place
  • Recognize and control hazards in the workplace

BCP and Disaster Recovery

Business continuity planning

Business continuity planning is a process of preparing a document which consists of critical information an organization needs to continue operating during an unplanned event. Before preparing this document, it should take into account any possible business disruption. BCP ensures that the business processes can continue during the time of disaster or emergency.

Our organization follows four steps to develop a Business Continuity plan:

  • To identify critical business functions and processes that support them by conducting a business impact analysis
  • Identify, document and implement to recover critical business functions and processes
  • Make a Business continuity team and compile a business continuity plan to manage a business disruption.
  • Conduct training for the business continuity team and testing and exercises to evaluate recovery strategies and process

We make a Business Continuity Plan which involves the following:

  1. Analysis of organizational threats
  2. A list of the primary tasks required to keep the organization operations flowing
  3. Easily located management contact information
  4. Explanation of where personnel should go if there is a disastrous event

Disaster recovery is a part of security planning and it comes into play with the Business Continuity Plan.
