ISO/IEC 27001 Risk Assessment: A Guide

ISO/IEC 27001 Risk Assessment is a systematic process of identifying, evaluating, and responding to risks associated with the use, processing, storage, and transmission of information. It is a process of identifying potential threats, vulnerabilities, and risks to the confidentiality, integrity, availability, and privacy of information and assessing their potential impact. The process includes evaluating the likelihood of a risk occurring, the potential impact of the risk, and the risk response strategies. The goal of the risk assessment is to identify and prioritize risks to ensure that appropriate measures are taken to minimize their impact and to ensure the security of information.
