Successful risk assessment involves identifying the threat, assessing vulnerability and valuing your information assets. This information needs to be formulated in to focused risk statements which are then prioritised for treatment by applying appropriate controls. There is no one correct method for assessing risk and an organisation should choose the most appropriate method that fits in with the way they do business. Following prioritisation, an assessment is then made on the effectiveness of the controls against the level of risk and the risk owner judges if any further treatment is necessary.
The threat landscape is ever changing, and therefore, an organisations risk assessment must be reviewed regularly and revised if necessary.
ISO 27001:2013 is the recognised international standard for Information Security management, and provides a common framework for developing security policy and identifying mitigating controls.
The certification standard provides a holistic approach to managing information risk; ensuring continuous improvement of the controls that maintain the confidentiality, integrity and availability of data.
Cyber Essentials is a Government backed, industry sponsored scheme to help organisations protect themselves against common cyber-attacks. It provides a clear statement of the basic controls all organisations should implement to mitigate risks from the most common internet based threats. Once a sound foundation of basic hygiene measures are in place, it can be built upon as an organisation better understands its exposure to cyber-risk.
