Course Description

This self assessment tool is part of our Auditing toolset and is more of a course resource for senior managers and executives, normally those who have already taken one or more of our executive awareness courses. It is intended to provide the following main benefits:

  1. For the non cyber security expert/professional, it helps senior managers consider the potential complexities of the cyber related operations within their organisation and the context of all internal and external stakeholders in the supply chain.
  2. It helps senior managers consider the different high level areas of potential impact which might result from a cyber incident, which can support areas of focus and priority.
  3. Completing the assessment can provide a good starting point of information to engage a cyber security professional when trying to develop a strategy and decide upon an appropriate framework, budget and timeline to implement a management system.

This will better inform the professional of the high level nature and risk posture of an organisation which can then promote a more focussed and prioritised discussion.
