Why are risk assessment and risk treatment important?

Implementation of information security usually includes a lot of changes in an organization – changes in technology, processes, responsibilities, etc. The problem is that most of the companies make these changes (they are normally called security controls or safeguards) in a non-systematic way – they do it because they wanted to fix some immediate problem, or because some new technology has arrived.

But this kind of approach brings two key problems: (1) it is very likely that many potential problems (i.e. risks) will not be addressed because the employees are simply not aware of them, and (2) the scope of changes will probably not be appropriate to the level of risk – very often the controls are either too big, or too small; the effect is that they either cost too much or that they don’t offer enough protection.

The solution to these problems is to perform an analysis before doing any implementation of controls – this is called risk management, which consists primarily of risk assessment and risk treatment. The purpose of risk management is to identify where the potential problems are, and then systematically mitigate those risks.
