Risk Control & Risk Management

Concepts of risk control and management are central to the Hardened Structures evaluation and planning process. Risk control strives to minimize or eliminate to the extent possible each identified risk through the application of appropriate security strategies or “Hardening” measures. Risk management, in contrast, evaluates and quantifies identified risks, then prioritizes the requirements for security measures based on the asset criticality, and vulnerability.

The Hardened Structures team security assessment team identifies risks that can be controlled. The client determines which ones to accept, transfer, or avoid, taking into account that security measures or “Hardening” required to reduce or eliminate some risks might not be cost-effective or appropriate.

The risk analysis phase of a Hardened structures security assessment is based on the asset vulnerabilities or exposure identified during the vulnerability analysis. A loss event probability and impact assessment is carried out to determine the existing asset exposure or loss and its potential effects on the organization/company/structure.
