Security Risk Assessments

Overview of SRAs

A security risk assessment (SRA) is a process to identify, assess, and mitigate any security risks within an organization. This assessment focuses both on cybersecurity and physical security risks. The SRA typically results in a detailed report on different risk categories and an action list to mitigate any security vulnerabilities.

Aside from the practical sense of protecting an organization, many regulations require organizations to conduct regular security assessments.  For example, The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) Security Rule requires that covered entities (CEs) and business associates (BAs) conduct a risk assessment of their healthcare organization every year.
