Importance Of Security Risk Assessment
Security risk assessment is a crucial process that helps organisations identify, evaluate, and put in place essential security measures for their applications. It’s main goal is to prevent security issues and weaknesses in applications. This assessment provides a comprehensive view of an organisation’s application portfolio from a potential attacker’s viewpoint. It assists managers in making informed choices about where to allocate resources, what tools to use, and how to implement security controls. In essence, conducting this assessment is a vital component of an organisation’s risk management process.

According to Gartner, end-user spending on security and risk management in India is projected to reach $2.65 billion in 2023, showing an 8.3% increase compared to 2022.“The increase in adoption of digitalisation, cloud applications and the rise in remote workers exposes Indian organisations to greater security risks,” said Rustam Malik, Senior Principal Analyst at Gartner. “In addition, growing concerns on the rising number of ransomware attacks coupled with stringent government measures on digital data protection and security breach reporting are pressing chief information security officers (CISOs) to increase their security and risk management spending for 2023.”.
