Microsoft Security Assessment – How secure are you?

The Microsoft Security Assessment (MSA) is an online application that uses a security assessment tool and includes an on-site questionnaire designed to help users gain a better understanding of their security gaps and risks. The assessment takes about one to two hours to complete. The assessment provides a user with a broad overview of the company and IT organization and results in a clearly defined map to becoming more secure through prioritized activities, solutions, and prescriptive guidance.

When the assessment is completed, users receive a report with findings and recommendations specific to business issues addressed in the assessment. The report is designed to help users understand a base level of security and prioritize steps to mitigate identified risks.
