Top level risk estimation is used when a quick and coarse risk status is required. Within this approach assessor defines the scope in terms of asset groups, and does not specify particular information assets. The risks are then estimated on the asset groups. This apporach signifcantly reduces the the workload to get the first impression of risk situation. It enables the assessor to determine crticial areas quickly and then focuses on them in detail.
To perform top level risk assesment, select asset group(s) by checking the coresponding check box (see picture below). displayed number of selected particular assets on the right sight, 0/5 in presented case, does not change.
