Security Risk Assessment

A risk assessment is an identification and analysis of risks faced by the school, centers, departments or groups. Risk is the potential of an incident happening that may result in unwanted loss of an asset or delay to normal business operations. A risk assessment and mitigation recommendations can be performed by IT Security, mainly for areas handing student-owned, regulated (PHI), and sensitive information. To request a risk assessment, email IT Security at: itsecurity@umassmed.edu or fill out the form below.
