What is a threat assessment?

A threat assessment is a process of identifying, analyzing, and evaluating potential threats to an organization.

The goal of a threat assessment is to identify potential risks or threats, assess the likelihood and potential impact of those threats, and develop strategies to mitigate or minimize those threats. Threat assessments can include a wide range of potential threats, including physical threats, cyber threats, natural disasters, and other types of risks that may impact an organization.

The threat assessment process typically involves several stages, including information gathering, threat identification, risk assessment, and risk management planning. The process may also include ongoing monitoring and evaluation to ensure that the risk management strategies are effective and up-to-date.
