About Business line/Function : BP2S IT Risk and Cyber Security

 Security risk management policy (SRM-L2-00), and aligned with the Group 2OPC approach related to risks cartography (CG0121EN and COP0028EN).

Cross references to Risk analysis methodology user guide (SRM-L4-01) are also provided to aid comprehension of the risk analysis methodology proposed by GGS (which is based on EBIOS methodology).

Risk level is the combination of the severity of impacts (or consequences), that can be assessed through the Impact Severity Matrix sheet, and of the likelihood for a feared event, that can be assessed though the likelihood Matrix sheet.

For Impact study please consider the below support information:

Impact severity level is used to assess risk level (in combination with likelihood of threat scenarios) and relies on the potential consequences of a feared event on an essential asset (to be assessed by the business).

 For a feared event, the severity level can be different depending on each type of impact. Hence, the final severity level for each feared event should correspond to the highest severity level assessed amongst all impact types;

 Criticality of assets is bound to security needs, to be evaluated for Confidentiality, Integrity, Availability, and Traceability (combines Non-repudiation and Authenticity);

 Sensitivity is used to describe the criticality of data and information. Sensitive data hence means that this data or information is a critical asset, in particular in terms of Confidentiality (but it may also concern other security needs);

 Although impacts with high severity levels are more likely when essential assets are concerned, criticality level is not directly used to calculate risk level (severity level is used instead).
