We have condensed the knowledge of some of the world's leading cybersecurity experts into a 15-minute self-assessment covering seven fundamental areas.
A foundational review
Our assessment covers key business strategies that - when implemented correctly - provide a strong cybersecurity foundation. Performing these base components is the fastest, long-lasting route to effective organisational security. Here are the seven key areas we review:
Having clearly defined roles for reporting cybersecurity to key executives guarantees an organisation will be sufficiently sighted on risks. CyberSeven identifies the assignment of critical board responsibilities.
Maintaining a register of data assets is a crucial step in defining your approach to cybersecurity. The review assesses the value of the intangible assets you control and their impact on your cyber risk profile.
Cybercriminals find little resistance when it comes to organisations with underfunded IT teams and infrastructure. CyberSeven assesses the level of funding dedicated to IT and cybersecurity.
Fraud is countered by segregating payment duties, defining processes for payment detail changes, and auditing automated payments. The review focuses on the segmentation of your payment functions to prevent fraud.
IT staff count ratio
An under-resourced IT department handling too many responsibilities will lead to disaster. CyberSeven assesses the adequacy of resourcing to manage IT and security effectively.
Cyber skills and awareness
A culture of security awareness supported by training ensures that employees are vigilant defenders of company assets. The review assesses the maintenance of your staff’s capabilities and vigilance.
Ensuring the security of technologies that you and your vendors use will result in criminals perceiving your business as a hard target. CyberSeven assesses your technology strategy to stay ahead of cybercriminals.
We identified these crucial areas by assessing the common shortcomings in organisations that have suffered a cyber incident. Our team has decades of experience in cyber risk management and have helped thousands of businesses recover from cyberattacks.
CyberSeven covers the fundamentals which provide the foundation for effective cyber risk management. If implemented, all other good security practices and controls to manage cyber risk will follow.
