As to firewall risk assessment, it is a process of evaluating the effectiveness of an organization’s firewall security measures.

firewall risk assessment involves evaluating the firewall’s configuration, rules, and policies to determine if they are appropriately configured and maintained to protect the organization’s network from external threats.

The goal of a firewall risk assessment is to identify potential weaknesses in the firewall security measures and recommend steps to improve the security of the organization’s network.
