Description
To prioritize the severity of the threats to your company’s information assets, you will need a clear understanding of the likelihood of each vulnerability, whether or not it is being controlled, and its impact value. Assessing vulnerabilities will help you to build your analysis and decision-making abilities to manage risks.

For this assignment, you will read an article and write a research paper on the risks associated with the components of an information system, and include a risk vulnerability matrix.

Study the “About Us” page of the website and gather information about the type of work of the company, ongoing or past projects of the company, the products or services it provides and the type of information assets it might have, etc. You can research further on other companies belonging to the same industry.
  3. Based on your research, identify as many possible security risks to the company’s information assets as you can.

    • Web link to the company

    • A risk vulnerability matrix with a vulnerability level to each risk (as given in the Documenting the Results of Risk Assessment section of Chapter 4 of the text) using as much information from the organization’s site as is available
    • Include a column in the matrix on how the risk might be managed
    • Reference course materials to support your observations and conclusions
