How would one analyze risks?

Risk analysis as it pertains to computer resources, is a process of determining potential fiscal cost of having one or more of the three elements(reliability, integrity, and confidentiality)

First what are we risk analyzing?     A Website that is hosted by a third party

Why are we risk analyzing?  To determine if we need more security (more resources)

A vulnerability analysis involves what could occur if the system was compromised and thus affect (reliability, integrity, and confidentiality)

A threat analysis is a process of identifying who can negatively affect (reliability, integrity, and confidentiality)

in these assessments a percentage chance of likelihood of attack on the system

what is the value of the website?


Out of the various analyses we can start to create a Risk Assessment matrix for each device or website. For each software

One unfortunate aspect of Risk assessment is not being able to asses the Unknown unknowns.

A new Zero-day attack could negatively affect the systems and thus either degrade or bring down the site for a while. One needs to decide on the value of the computing resources to decide the level of testing and monitoring.
