Security Assessment Templates
You will find here some templates for performing daily security risk management. These templates include a variety of tools to compliment an existing set. You can also start your SRM process right from here or contact me for assistance.
If you are in the beginning stages of building your comprehensive risk management plan, you are likely looking for something that will help you get started with your risk assessments. That is a big task—but it does not need to be daunting. Here are a few things you should know before you begin:
- The templates below are not pre-made questionnaires that you can simply copy and paste and be done with. Rather, they are comprehensive documents with hundreds (and thousands) of possible question ideas that can be used to create a personalized risk assessment questionnaire. Thus, it’s important to keep your own industry, organization, and vendors in mind as you gather pertinent security questions.
- All of these are examples of risk assessments that ask a series of questions about an organization’s governance and approach to security. So while there will be a lot of material to comb through, you should be able to understand it all quite easily.
- Creating an information security risk assessment template for your organization is not a quick or easy process. You cannot expect to show up to work at 9 a.m. and have your document written and completed before lunch. Instead, expect for your company’s leadership to spend many hours across several days reading through these three templates.
The templates will be available in English, Spanish, French and Arabic.
