Structural Complexity & Risk Assessment

Structural Complexity and Risk Assessment tools are fully customizable to accurately capture your file risk.

Assessing Levels of Risk

Accurately defining the level of risk for end user computing (EUC) applications requires assessing a file’s processing complexity and materiality impact on the organization. Apparity provides both with its structural complexity and risk assessment features.

Structural Complexity

The structural complexity algorithm can be fully customized to your needs. Apparity is able to leverage any of the file attributes gathered from Discovery in the algorithm. The files are then separated into high, medium and low complexity ratings.

There are many proven benefits of this assessment. Some organizations use this feature to determine the level of EUC controls required. While others use it to determine which files should be further assessed by IT or EUC teams, or use it as an input for a more qualitative assessment.

Risk Assessment

Apparity’s customizable registration forms serve as a perfect platform for an organization-specific risk assessment.

This feature weighs variables such as the file’s purpose, relevant regulations, report visibility, and more to perform a comprehensive materiality assessment of risk. This can be used in conjunction with the structural complexity to combine both complexity and business impact in a single assessment. Not only does this help an organization achieve policy goals, but it also provides a more detailed picture of the EUC landscape.
