With cyber threats making international news continually, we’ve all grown a bit weary and a bit tired of the topic but it doesn’t mean that the threat is going away, if anything it is getting worse. A Cyber Security Self Assessment may be the answer you are looking for to get a holistic idea of the current state of your Cyber Security.
There’s alot of scaremongering in the media but there doesn’t seem to be much in the way of practical tips that individuals and businesses can use and implement.
So I thought it was about time that something was developed that could help your business identify what level your cyber security protection is at. Something that you can do yourself and get your IT person to assist with.
We’re not trying to push a particular product or solution, from our point of view it’s all about providing useful information to you to help you protect yourself and your customers.
We have developed a cyber security self-assessment that can be downloaded from this web page, reviewed and completed. It covers different areas of the cyber security landscape that every business should have including –
- Management and strategy
- Network security
- Access controls
- Staff awareness and training
The objective behind the self-assessment is to get you thinking about where the risks are within your own business and what you are doing for protection. The answer to all questions in the self-assessment should be ‘yes’ and if you are getting some-one to do the self-assessment for you and answers are not all ‘yes’ then there should be a justification as to why not.
