System Architecture And Design
Faced with the need to deliver risk ratings for your organization, you will have to substitute the organization’s risk preferences for your own. For, indeed, it is the organization’s risk tolerance that the assessment is trying to achieve, not each assessor’s personal risk preferences.
What is the risk posture for each particular system as it contributes to the overall risk posture of the organization?
How does each attack surface – its protections if any, in the presence (or absence) of active threat agents and their capabilities, methods, and goals through each situation—add up to a system’s particular risk posture?
In addition, how do all the systems’ risks sum up to an organization’s computer security risk posture?
Risk posture is a measure of the likelihood and impact of a threat to an organization’s assets. It is determined by a number of factors, including the value of the assets, the vulnerabilities of the assets, and the capabilities of the threats.
The risk posture of each system in an organization will vary depending on the system’s importance, its vulnerabilities, and the threats it faces. For example, a system that contains sensitive data will have a higher risk posture than a system that does not contain sensitive data. A system that is connected to the internet will have a higher risk posture than a system that is not connected to the internet.
