Risk management is part of an on-going process to identify security control gaps on campus systems and processes.  Risk management provides the basis for prioritization and selection of remediation activities and can be used to monitor the effectiveness of campus controls.  Risk management is conducted through an annual campus-wide risk assessment and on-going risk management processes defined by the ISO.

Annual Risk Assessment

Sacramento State conducts an annual campus-wide risk assessment coordinated by the Information Security Office. Results from the assessment are provided to the Vice President and Chief Information Officer, in the form of a campus-wide report that is presented to the President. The President will certify completion of the annual risk assessment, including certification of all mitigation strategies and all campus risk acceptance.
