Applications Risk Assessment

Today, most organizations rely heavily on third-party applications to operate their businesses. Whether it’s a platform that helps you manage payroll, keep track of projects, onboard new employees or manage your risks, they’re there to make your job easier. In order to provide quality support and effectively safeguard customer information, it’s critical to stay on top of all of the risks posed to you, your stakeholders and your customers that are associated with using these applications. The only way to effectively understand those risks is by completing proper risk assessments.

An Applications Risk Assessment allows you to protect your organization by ensuring that your third-party applications align with your risk tolerance and ultimately, your own best practices. But when you feel like you rely on more applications than you can count, how can you effectively stay on top of all of those risks? Read on to find out how LogicManager’s Applications Risk Assessments solution can help.

Application Risk Assessment Risks

Completing risk assessments for your applications is a critical component of any ERM program. Without a comprehensive understanding of your applications’ risks, your organization faces the same risks they do. Should a scandal or serious incident take place at the hands of the application you’re working with, lacking the evidence to prove that you weren’t involved can land you into trouble; and negligence claims can have costly implications.

Take the example of Target, who in 2013 suffered significant financial and reputational damages as a result of a hack in their POS application: the same vulnerability that allowed hackers into the third party application posed an equal threat to up to 110 million Target shoppers.
