Security Risk Management Process

Our AR INTELL Security Risk Management Process aims to provide you with an in-depth set of security methods & threat intelligence insights. We manage Your Security Risks by doing a Security Risk Assessment 1st. Hence we believe this will help you to clearly understand which security threats are important for your community, for you as an individual, or for your organization/company.

Security Risk Assessment, Threat Intelligence, and Risk Management must work hand in hand.

To protect your physical & digital assets effectively, a set of security controls needs to be in place. These controls will function as deterring elements. They work in sync with detection systems and attack delay mechanisms. Other response methodologies are also to be considered.

Ask yourself how to respond to incidents.

We always start the process with an assessment of your best business practices, and standard operating procedures (SOPs). We will verify your security policies, industry-standard compliance, and other guidelines or regulations which should be in place at any organizational level.

Types of Security Risks & Threats:

Physical security risks & threats

  • theft, robbery & burglary
  • vandalism
  • terrorism
  • sabotage
  • natural disasters
  • physical violence

Cyber Security Risks

  • cyber security & digital security risks
  • computer security risks
  • network security threats

Other Risks

  • perimeter security risks
  • workplace security risks

threat intelligence

Threat Intelligence is not a luxury.

Levels of Security Assessment & Process

Our security risk assessment process will look at many different areas in your organization and issues. This done to make a preliminary security risk assessment report. These risk elements & risk areas are looked at during a specific process:

  • General context: strategic context, organizational context, risk management context


  • Threat Assessment – Vulnerability Assessment – Critical elements Assessment
    • conceptual threats
    • operational levels
    • physical levels
    • lighting
    • management levels
    • policy levels
    • training levels
    • security staff
    • electronic & digital systems
    • electrical systems
    • liability issues
    • legal issues
    • regulatory issues
    • structural design
    • perimeter & barrier security
    • analysis of security weaknesses and exploitation of opportunities
  • Risk Identification (who did what, with who, when, where, how, why)
  • Risk Assessment (likelihood of something happening & the consequences or effects
    • recommendations
    • options
    • trade-offs
  • Risk Evaluation (what can we tolerate and accept)
  • Risk Mitigation (avoid risks, sharing the risk-load, exploitation scenarios, acceptance, and reduction)
    • avoidance of risk
    • reduction of risk
    • spreading of risk
    • transfer of risk
    • acceptance of risk

Specific Information will be acquired by means of:

  • interviews
  • assessment of security posture
  • assessment of current security apparatus & infrastructure
  • history of security incidents
  • on-site research
  • analysis of crime or incident scenes
  • documentation reviews
  • policy reviews
  • SOP reviews
  • risk simulations
  • resource optimization
  • compliance verification
  • surveillance systems check
  • disaster recovery training

Risk Discovery Process

The whole purpose of the security risk discovery process is to establish an effective and realistic risk management strategy that allows you to reduce or limit the threats. As it happens threats can be real, perceived, or conceptual.

We will prevent opportunities or risky situations to occur. This can reduce the negative effects of misconfigurations, lack of security, accidents, mishaps, or disasters.

By compiling a hands-on security assessment report, we will help you to identify the risks to your assets & people. Based on accurate intelligence reports you will be able to make better security decisions.

Security Risk Analysis Report

We use 3 different methods which are reflected in our report.

Hybrid
Methodology

Quantitative Methodology

Qualitative Methodology

Contentwise our reports contain an executive summary, a list of security issues, and constructive suggestions which reflect upon:

  • your different levels of specific vulnerabilities
  • how you interact with your environment (inside / outside the organization)
  • applicable threats and their frequency of occurring
  • technical system connected
  • levels of data exposure
  • calculations of detailed Annual Loss Expectancy
  • Residual risks & threats

Quantify your risks

Consider our specialized AR INTELL risk identification process. We go all out in order to quantify & qualify the risks in your business or organization, or individual situation. Most importantly we aim to predict its influence on your organization’s business processes, company structure, or individual situations. Take a look at the uncertainty in detail.

Ultimately it is up to you to either accept, tolerate or reject the presence of certain perils and threats. This entirely depends on your risk appetite & risk tolerance levels in your business processes. It is prudent to run a pro-active risk management system to support the diverse mitigation systems.

Careful Risk Planning & Mitigation

We recommend careful planning and a detailed (re)organization of all the risks. This in combination with tight financial cost control and clear budgeting, allows you to mitigate any relevant risks.

Types of Risks

Essentially there are different classifications of risk:

  • Systematic Risk:
    the overall impact of the market or in general external factors.
  • Unsystematic Risk:
    asset-specific or company-specific uncertainties.
  • Political/Regulatory Risk: impact of political decisions and regulatory changes
  • Financial & Business Risk: capital structure of a company, working capital (finances & debt)
  • Reputational Risk: the reputation of a brand and standing in society, industry & business
  • Interest Rate Risk: effect of changing interest rates
  • Country Risk: country-specific issues
  • Socio-Economic risk: level of lawlessness in a country – economic development standards
  • Social Risk: changes in social norms, population movements, social unrest
  • Environmental Risk: changes in the environmental parameters, weather & physical acts/events
  • Operational Risk: operational issues, supply chain, delivery of products or services
  • People Risk: staff, recruitment, training, industry relations, fraud
  • Management Risk: decisions by management teams
  • Strategic Risk: failing to execute plans & adjust to changing environment
  • Legal Risk: lawsuits or the freedom to operate
  • Regulatory Risk: compliance with regulations & legislation
  • Competition: effect of competitors in the industry
  • Crime Risk: criminal activities that concern your company, including cybercrime
  • Technology Risk: risk associated with the use of technology, physical & virtual systems

Problem Solving

Contact us to assess the threats, hazards, or uncertainties that you are facing. First, we start the problem-solving. This will form the foundation for a good risk management plan, followed by an identification & assessment of the risks.

The development of a proper incident response system is the next phase.

AR INTELL can assist you in the prevention of these (un)identified threats. Contact us TODAY.

Risk Assessment

Potential Risks

We look at Risk Assessment as the systematic process whereby we evaluate the potential risks that may be involved in a specific projected activity or any type of undertaking. Our methods focus on risk analysis & and risk evaluation.

We perform an assessment of the risks in relation to:

  • Identifiable hazards or roadblocks
  • clear or not so clear risk factors that can cause harm
  • risks associated with those hazards
  • Risk Elimination: methods of elimination of the hazard
  • Risk Control: ways to control the risk (if the hazard cannot be eliminated)
