“After performing the risk analysis, you have immediate insight into risks that you probably weren’t even aware of before.”
Importance of conducting a risk analysis
As a company you want to have insight into the risks that apply to your organization. So that you can adequately respond to them or, if necessary, prepare for them as much as possible by taking measures.
The PCT makes it easy to identify risks and to link control measures to them. Within the PCT, all possible risks are systematically categorized and pre-defined as much as possible so that nothing is overlooked. By means of dashboards you can see at a glance the real-time status of which risks you still need to assess and which control measures apply to you.
The integrated risk analysis in the PCT ensures that you identify the risks in the area of your assets. With the extensive set of risks and control measures you can get to work immediately, because you get a direct insight into where the highest risks for your organization lie. A direct link is made with the controls from the standard for Information Security ISO 27001.
The steps of a good risk analysis
Performing a thorough risk analysis takes time and the necessary expertise. For example, there is a minimum number of steps that should be followed during a thorough risk analysis of your organization.

Why do you need to conduct a risk assessment?
Every organization faces risks to a greater or lesser extent, including your organization. Therefore it is important as an organization to be aware of risks. Then you can take advantage of opportunities that the risks entail or limit the threats resulting from them. Moreover, performing a risk analysis is often a fixed part of the process towards obtaining ISO 27001 certification.
With a risk analysis you map out all possible threats and consequences. A risk is not immediately a danger, but it can become so in the future. To anticipate these risks, management measures are then added.
