Portable Devices Risk Assessment

By Michael Hartke | Wednesday, June 6, 2012 - Leave a Comment

The FFIEC is clear about the need to conduct risk assessments focused on the deployment of new technologies. This document is an asset-based drill-down risk assessment that can be used to establish inherent and residual risk on vulnerabilities to smartphones (iPhones, Android Phones, Blackberries), tablets (iPads, Galaxy’s, Playbooks, etc.), and laptops.  It also includes a handy asset inventory.  It also helps prioritize the development and installation of technical and non-technical controls.

The Portable Devices Risk Assessment:

 

An excellent risk assessment for BYOD policies and procedures. This template makes a great format for use in new product risk analysis.  The assessment brainstorms vulnerabilities to mobile devices.  It covers both “Issued” or company-owned mobile devices and/or “Authorized” or Employee-Owned (BYOD) mobile devices.

This document goes hand-in-hand with the other documents in our “Mobile Devices Security Kit.”

In addition to an asset inventory questionnaire, it includes vulnerability assessments (with inherent, residual, and anticipated residual risk metrics) for tablets (iPads, Xooms, etc.), smartphones (iPhones, Android Phones, and Blackberries) and laptops (windows 7).  An excellent source for a list of mobile device security controls!

All templates are color-coded, and don’t forget, updates are free for three years and our boilerplates all come with a 30 Day Guarantee!
