Role Based Security Risk Assessment

Last Updated 20 October 2020

Role Based Security Risk Assessment

Understanding what security risks your organisation faces is essential for developing appropriate and proportionate security mitigation measures within the insider threat programme. A role based risk assessment, conducted by the Insider Threat Working Group, should:

  • Identify the critical assets in your organisation;
  • Identify the threat (based on intent and capability);
  • Assess the likelihood of that threat happening in your organisation;
  • Assess the impact to your business if the threat occurred;
  • Review the adequacy of existing countermeasures;
  • Propose new proportionate measures where required to reduce insider risks.

It is only the above activity that can effectively inform and shape the subsequent steps.
