According to a recent press release out of CyberWISER, “The Internet and digital services play an increasing role in our business portfolios and have a growing impact on our daily lives. However, as digital services and cyberspace evolve, so do the cyber risks that organizations are exposed to. All businesses are at risk, whether they are a Fortune 500 company, a family-run business, a utility company or a tech start-up. Yet, a staggering 80% of companies worldwide recognise they are insufficiently prepared to protect themselves against cyberattacks. Without proper risk management, they are putting a lot at stake, from direct economic impact such as business interruption and loss of customer or sensitive data to indirect impact such as brand damage and reduced ability to win new customers.”
The release goes on, “To make cyber risk management affordable and doable by organisations of all types and services, the WISER project has come up with a user-friendly framework with the first launch of CyberWISER Essential and CyberWISER Plus, two advanced and innovative services offering a decisive feature in the cyber risk management process: the real time monitoring and assessment of cyber risk. Who benefits from using the new services? Different types and sizes of organisations from SMEs with critical assets exposed online, to large organisations that operate or depend on critical infrastructures can now benefit from real-time monitoring and assessment of cyber risks in a decisively new approach to the cyber risk management process.”
