helping company directors overcome the fear of being vilified by the media when their organisation is the victim of a cyber attack
Insight helps company directors gain an appreciation for where the organisation is today. This is necessary as most directors are overly optimistic about their current capabilities and the value of their current investments for combating cybercrime. Furthermore they have no idea how to determine where they are from a cultural standpoint with respect to combating cybercrime because the information they are given in relation to cyber risk within the organisation is obtuse, at best.
Applying the Wheel of Misfortune to your organisation, we provide you with the most valuable insights about your organisation by tapping into the information your people and technology throughout the organisation hold to piece together:
- What information is most critical to the survival of your organisation
- Who has access to that information
- Where the vulnerabilities in the organisation lie
- The most likely threats which could cause serious impacts to your organisation
- How good your organisation’s capabilities are to predict and prevent threats; detect and respond to attacks; and disclose and recover breaches
- How prepared your organisation is for a cyber breach
- The cost of impact to your organisation in the event of the most likely cyber breaches
What you receive is a comprehensive report and one page summary written in business language highlighting the insights, a maturity score, and a prioritised list of recommended actions.
helping company directors avoid being labelled by the media as ignorant about cybercrime
Applying the Cyber Resilience Battle Plan to your organisation, we provide you with the way forward to ensure your organisation is prepared for adversity rather than spontaneously responding to cyber-attacks. This is achieved by mapping out the communications, people, process, and technology your organisation requires to combat cybercrime:
- The steps required to master asset discovery and classification to achieve asset management
- The steps required to master vulnerability discovery and remediation to achieve vulnerability management
- The steps required to master threat prediction and prevention to achieve threat management
- The steps required to master attack detection and response to achieve incident management
- The steps required to master breach disclosure and recovery to achieve continuity management
- The steps required to master impact avoidance, acceptance, transfer, and mitigation to achieve crisis management
- The business metrics required to define what constitutes success and measure the value of the strategy
What you receive is a comprehensive strategy document which aligns with and supports the organisational strategy thus making cyber resilience an enabler rather than a hindrance.
Foresight helps company directors have a perfectly tailored action plan specific to their organisation to shift their it from the highly tactical vulnerable, reactive, or compliant maturity level of today and move to a strategic cyber resilient maturity level in the future. The action plan is critical given that less than 30% of organisations are prepared for the next cyber attack. It will include the why, what, and how that is necessary to make a measurable difference to the impact cybercrime has on the organisation.
helping company directors avoid being branded by the media as negligent in their response to a cyber attack
Oversight helps company directors develop a culture that embraces cyber risk through purposeful communications, empowerment of its people, adherence to quality processes, and technology as an aid rather than a crutch. Today most organisations have become embroiled in a blame culture with respect to combating cybercrime, giving cybercriminals an unfair advantage. Achieving cyber resilience begins with directors taking on accountability for the cultural problem that cybercrime is.
Applying the Cyber Resilience Operating Plan to your organisation, we provide you with the guidance to ensure your cyber resilience strategy is executed, updated, and measured against the predefined success criteria to reflect the rapidly changing world in which your organisation and industry operate:
- Defining the roles that each person in your organisation must play in combating cybercrime
- Reviewing the reporting structure to ensure that communications can flow, unhindered, as required
- Enabling silos to be broken down to foster collaboration and solve the cultural problem that cybercrime is
- Empowering each person with the understanding and authority to help in the combating of cybercrime
- Connecting you with subject matter experts to help in combating cybercrime where your organisation lacks the experience
- Augmenting your people assets with processes and technology roadmaps
- Creating feedback mechanisms to ensure that the strategy remains achievable and progress is being made in executing it
What you receive is a series of reports that show how you are meeting the milestones within your cyber resilience strategy and that a measurable return on investment is being achieved as your organisation combats cybercrime.
