Author(s): Bogdan Å¢igănoaia   Constantin Macari            

Abstract: Security risk analysis is one of the main pillars in achieving the objectives of an organization. Effective risk management helps top management to make optimum security decisions. This paper presents aspects of risk management but also designing and implementing an automated system to identify, assess, manage, and provide countermeasures to security risks across an organization. There are some expensive software tools for risk management (some of them are presented in this paper), but an effort to design such a tool in Romanian universities, and then in Romanian IT organizations, should be done.

Keywords: risk, security, management, software.
