Executing a risk assessment goes beyond checklists and questionnaires. Ticking boxes off or simply answering questions will not satisfy regulatory mandates, as your word is practically worthless without a thorough examination and results that have been verified and proven as accurate.
Additionally, merely carrying out surface-level assessments will not suffice. A risk assessment is a comprehensive process wherein you peel back the layers to analyze and identify risks in your network and throughout your supply chain. This will truly help you ward off cyberthreats and convince a regulator or your cyber insurance provider about your commitment to data protection.
