In its simple form Risk management is an ongoing process that involves identifying, assessing and responding to individual risk. When it comes to cyber risk handling there are four ways to do so, these are mitigating the risk, transferring it, avoiding the risk or accepting the risk exposure.
Fundamental definition of Cyber risk is any risk associated with financial loss, disruption to operations or damage to an organisation’s reputation from a negative pull of event impacting the organisation’s information and/or information systems ability to serves its purpose.
Key examples include cybercrime, data breaches and system outages to name a few. Effective cyber risk management is not just having a firewall, log monitoring or deploying anti-virus software. Effectiveness of a cyber strategy involves a holistic view of people, processes and products to architect a secure, resilient and effective organisation.
Now a day’s technology is deeply embedded in almost everything we do as organisations become more technology reliant for competitive advantage. Due to this the cyber threat landscape continually changing making managing cyber risk ever complex.
