Organizations are scrambling to identify security weaknesses before their adversaries do. Having a consistent, systematic, and scalable methodology to properly assess your environment is essential. To begin you need a solid understanding of the organization, its components, what it relies on, and what could cause it harm. The Relational Security Assessment Model was developed by Rsam as a guide for developing a proper and balanced perspective in the rather oblique world of assessments. Embracing good concepts behind risk evaluation and control assessment is vital for security-minded organizations. With this foundation in place, you’re better positioned for a security audit.
