Risk is a threat negatively affecting an asset with the likelihood of occurring.

Increasing corporate governance and privacy regulations makes information security an important component and at the same time a challenge for businesses today. Information Security Governance is a set of rules and processes that govern and enforce the protection and use of Information within an organization.

When an organization wishes to clearly ascertain the pertinent information security risks to its business and the supporting computational infrastructure, a Threat and Risk Assessment (TRA) is performed. It can be completed as a self assessment or by a neutral external third party.
