Information Security Risk Assessment
Manage your information security risk with Tandem
Ensuring the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information is vital to the operations of your organization. An effective IT risk management process should identify, measure, control and monitor risk.
Tandem streamlines this process, so you can focus on reducing your organization’s vulnerabilities and threat exposure.
Information Security Risk Assessment
Start with our risk assessment template, which includes more than 60 common enterprise-wide information security threats.
Answer a questionnaire to unlock risk level suggestions. Then customize the risk assessment so it perfectly reflects your organization.
Information Assets Inventory
Maintain an inventory of your information assets and rate their confidentiality, integrity, and availability requirements.
Use the inventory ratings to determine the right level of protection for each asset.
Asset-Based Risk Assessments
Once your priority information assets are identified through your inventory, efficiently conduct unique risk assessments for them using the Tandem framework.
Use version tracking to access data from previous versions of the risk assessment, compare data in the risk assessment over time, and identify trends from year to year.
