IT Risk Management for Enterprise Businesses

The practice of IT risk management in the workplace is not new. As viruses, spyware and malware get smarter, and the risk of a security breach increases, it's important to make sure your business IT services are up-to-date against the latest threats. SolarWinds MSP (formerly LOGICnow)'s remote management software allows you to actively monitor your servers during or after business hours.

What is IT Risk Management?

IT risk management is the application of risk management practices into your IT organization. Its purpose is to manage and assess the risks that come with involving, operating and using IT as a part of enterprise business practices. In IT, risk can be defined as the result of the system's vulnerability to potential security threats.

There are five basic steps to the risk management process:

  1. Identify the risk
  2. Analyze the risk
  3. Evaluate or rank the risk
  4. Treat or modify the risk
  5. Monitor the risk
