Cyberwatching.eu launchs the new

Free tool for cyber risk self-assessment for SMEs

News published on 27/10/2020

Often small and medium-sized companies (SMEs) relying on digital services do not realise how important it is to adequately invest in cybersecurity until they experience a security breach. The consequences can be significant, ranging from financial losses to damaged reputations.

 

In order to help SMEs to get a first understanding of the cyber risks threatening their organization and pave the way for putting in place correct risk assessment processes, Cyberwatching.eu, under the supervision of the leading provider of risk management AON, developed the “Cyber risk temperature tool” providing a preliminary cyber risk assessment for SMEs.

 

The tool will help SMEs to understand the real situation about their cyber security environment and obtain an evaluation of their cyber security readiness. As Sebastiano Toffaletti, Secretary General at Digital SME Alliance, highlights, “while Europe is home to some of the world's leading cybersecurity SMEs, many small companies still underestimate cyber risks. The cyber risk assessment tool by cyberwatching.eu will allow SMEs of different digital maturity levels to evaluate their cyber security environment and identify steps towards reducing their vulnerabilities. These are necessary and important steps for all companies willing to succeed in digital economy'.

 

The questionnaire consists of two main parts: in the first one, the respondent is asked to give a personal assessment of his/her company's IT security; while the second part features technical questions. The set of questions focuses on different topics in order to analyse the company through different areas, such as:

  • specific knowledge of the cyber security within the company;
  • the methodologies followed within the company;
  • the distribution of administrative fees on the systems;
  • the information segmentation policy;
  • authentication policies for access to corporate systems;
  • other assessments previously carried out.

Through the attribution of a score, SMEs will be assigned to different profiles according to their level of vulnerability.

 

The "Cyber risk temperature tool” is available free of charge at www.cyberrisk.cyberwatching.eu/Pages/Home.aspx and can be completed in less than 15 minutes.

 

Answer the questionnaire, assesses your cyber security readiness and take decisions regarding cyber security issues based on your own assessment of corporate cyber security.
