Our Vulnerability & Risk assessments

Cognus team will help you identify the everyday risks and vulnerabilities your organisation faces.

After the evaluation, you will be furnished with your organization’s “Cybersecurity Scorecard”. This scorecard is a report of your organization’s risk and will indicate where your information and network are vulnerable.

Information security risk assessments are the foremost requirement outlined in federal regulations, for example, Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX), Gramm-Leach Bliley Act (GLBA) and Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).

  • Asset = Valued resource
  • Vulnerability = Exploitable weakness
  • Threat = Attacker of vulnerability

Risk = Asset x Vulnerability x Threat
