Cyber risk management - how to avoid an attack

With cyber crime on the increase worldwide, businesses of all sizes might want to consider implementing a cyber risk management strategy. 

Not only will this help identify the threats to an organisation, it will also help to address the risks and put the correct defences in place.

To help you do this, our colleagues at East Midlands Special Operations Unit (EMSOU) have compiled a comprehensive guide on cyber risk management.

A quick fix, therefore, is to follow 7 steps:

Step 1: Identify Your Assets

Step 2: Identify the threats and vulnerabilities

Step 3: Rank threat

Step 4: Risk Treatment

Step 5: Frameworks

Step 6: Action Plan

Step 7: Review
