Cyber-attacks will be one of the biggest threats to global stability in the next five years, according to the World Economic Forum’s Global Risks Report 2018.  Every organisation is a target, and yours could be among those already affected, so it is essential that you are aware of the risks and protect the data you hold.

In a world under the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), data protection should be at the top of every organisation’s agenda. Recent research from KPMG has found that 39% of UK CEOs “believe that becoming a victim of a cyber-attack is now a case of ‘when’ and not ‘if’ for their organisation”. 

It’s imperative that organisations conduct risk assessments when preparing, maintaining and updating their cyber security policies and programs. Thorough risk assessments help you identify and address any threats that your organisation may face, allowing you to mitigate them before it’s too late.  Organisations that are not ready or not looking to implement ISO 27001 should also read this paper to understand what data protection and cyber security risks they might be taking.

In this white paper, written by Alan Calder, one of the foremost thought leaders in information security risk assessment you will find:

  • How to determine the optimum risk scale so you can assess the impact and likelihood of risk.
  • How to systematically identify, evaluate and analyse risks without losing your mind!
  • Baseline security criteria you must establish for a successful ISO 27001 implementation.

Remember, cyber criminals never give up – nor should you!
