Cyber Risk Management

Organisations are facing an unprecedented wave of cyber security attacks and cyber-crime; it’s become the defining business issue of this generation. 

At the same time, the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) regulation due in 2018 will put significant additional responsibilities on organisations in data privacy and managing cyber risks effectively. That’s on top of the maximum fines of up to 4% of global turnover for breach and non-compliance.

How we can help with cyber risk management

We partner with Crossword Cybersecurity and City University to offer a low-cost online system that can help you to understand:

  • Your cyber security risks 
  • Exactly how to reduce those cyber-risks
  • How the GDPR will affect you, based on your use of data
  • What your GDPR action plan should be
  • How to obtain Cyber Essentials (the basic standard for cyber security)

The online, question-based system, known as Rizikon, is designed for executives and technologists to work together on the twin problems of cyber security risk and GDPR. Based on research from City University and best practise, it’s updated monthly as information on new threats and risks becomes available, and includes information about GDPR as guidance evolves.

The customised report can be run again and again to check progress and understand new threats – providing visible and auditable Governance.

An annual subscription to Rizikon is available for only £400 + VAT to Macintyre Hudson customers. Which is a 20% discount – sign up using code MHAMH020 here
