Without a qualified cyber risk assessment, you can’t spot any.
Cyber Risk is Hidden
Does that mean that there are no cyber risks? No. Cyber risk is similar to many human conditions; there are very few human-observable, definitive signs. Cyber risk, by definition, is hidden; often in plain sight. Cyber risk can only be detected and addressed by a qualified, independent third party assessor. Some cyber security risks are completely invisible to even the most sophisticated technology known to humans.
Do You Have a Cyber Risk Plan?
Other cyber risks are defined by the absence of certain intangibles. Finally, other cyber risks are only detected at the software level. Without a cyber risk plan, your organization has no way to systematically identify and address cyber risks. Make sure your cyber risk consultant is qualified to perform an assessment.
