Executive Summary
The project conducts a comprehensive risk assessment for Organix Company Limited using a combination of the threat oriented and vulnerability oriented approaches. There are numerous risks factors that expose or increase the susceptibility of Organix to threat events. They include online operations of its business, CMOs managing business operations, operating in a highly regulated environment, lack of a properly integrated enterprise system to mention just a few instances. In this report, controls are recommended to Organix to helps prevent, detect, deter, the risks from actualization as well as recovery and corrective strategies in case of the actualization of the risks.

Organix is an establishment in the food and supplement industry in Australia. The organization is made-up of an inter-web of a complex system of companies that transcends geographic barriers by linking electronically to Australia, a group of Asian countries, New Zealand and other parts of the world. From 2013, after Organix established its privately labelled brand, it outsourced its production and packaging to Contract Manufacturing Organisations (CMOs). All the companies operations are centralized and managed at the Southbank Precinct; this includes CMOs management, logistics, marketing, raw material sourcing, and even the online shops. The CMOs and Organix operations are managed by a semi-customized CMO management module, which transmits data via a Virtual Private Network (VPN). The company has both a physical and an online presence; as such, the hardware infrastructure of Organix would require the company to have comprehensive computer systems to manage the business processes. To support its web-based infrastructure the organization has partnered with a web development and web marketing companies to manage its operations, which includes the payment gateways and personal data of Organix customers as captured on the company’s web platform, which is highly sensitive data. Organix has its operations in several countries, which becomes a challenging endeavour when it requires to comply with the local regulations of each country. The following report conducts a risk assessment and mitigation strategy for Organix.
The purpose of this project is to carry out a risk assessment on Organix PTY internal operations, external operations (CMOs, distributors, and outsourced company’s) with the objective of identifying areas of threat and vulnerability, the likelihood of the threat occurrence and the potential impact on the organization. Then, a risk mitigation strategy will be developed that takes into consideration the recommended controls and cost-benefit analysis to select control measures and even assign responsibility to the required parties.
The applied the NIST framework 800-30 to develop a risk management report that focused on Organix as an organization (tier 1), its business processes (tier 2) and its information systems (tier 3) while combing a threat-oriented approach to the vulnerability oriented approach to determine the magnitude of risks that that Organix faces. The accruing data will be used to develop appropriate risk mitigation approaches. Noteworthy, is to appreciate that the Risk assessment process was limited in that background knowledge offered, which was very limiting. In some sections, the groups had to apply assumptions in order to make up for gaps in knowledge. That said, the information offered was enough to develop a risk mitigation approach that would be critical in managing Organix at the three tiers.
