Many businesses and organizations may not be as savvy as they think they are being about network security. They may not understand or know the specific threats to the organization. This is a huge problem that can cost a lot of money. Those who utilize risk criteria software can easily avoid these issues. This type of model not only analyzes threats, but serves as a tool to further breakdown the specific issue, rates the threat and provides other pertinent information. Although there are various forms of this criteria, what is referred to as risk matrix is among some of the most popular and beneficial. This is because the matrix serves as a visual representation of a potential breach or security concern. Regardless of the type or size of a business, it is important to understand the potential for risks and how they will affect an organization.
