The comprehensive risk assessment is a formal, detailed, yet flexible method of evaluating the business and operational risks and controls of an organization. This important service provides senior management with an effective way to understand and appropriately mitigate risks to the organization with associated executive and line management reports. Its objectives are to evaluate and determine risk, based on controls found in ISO 27001 and guidance on these controls documented in ISO 27002, to assess how technology and operational risks are managed and controlled, and to evaluate the overall risk exposure to the company and its customers. It compiles and clarifies information related to prevention and control technologies, practices, and their associated effectiveness which could reduce and/or eliminate risks. Additionally, this assessment summarizes existing controls and provides recommendations for remediating any deficiencies.
