The FTC estimates the total cost for identity theft in the U.S. to be $50 billion, and new requirements from government agencies require businesses and organizations to perform security risk assessments against a number of standards including GLBA, SOX, HIPA, ISO-17799 and 27001, FFIEC, BSA and COBIT. To combat this growing epidemic and meet regulatory compliance mandates, TraceSecurity's Risk Manager combines qualitative analysis with quantitative measurement, which allows users to prioritize risk and identify vulnerabilities, as well as to determine the risk's magnitude of impact which can help identify the cost-benefits associated with recommended controls.
