Risk Assessment is the process that will benefit both the individual department and the university as a whole. Completing such an analysis/assessment is extremely important in todays advanced technological world. It is important that users understand what risks exist in their information assets environment, and how those risks can be reduced or even eliminated.
A business impact analysis/risk assessment team from OCCS has identified some common risks, and put together a process and template for departments to use in their effort. Individual departments are encouraged to review those common risks to see which might apply to their specific environment. They should then review their own surroundings to determine what specific risks exist for inclusion into the process.
