Cyber Risk Exposure Assessment
What is a Cyber Risk Exposure Assessment?
A Cyber Risk Exposure Assessment comprehensively evaluates your organisation's cybersecurity posture to identify potential cyber risks and vulnerabilities.
Will a Cyber Risk Exposure Assessment affect normal business operations?
A Cyber Risk Exposure Assessment will not impact your daily business operations. However, we require stakeholders from your business to be available for approximately 90 minutes for the remote call for our security questionnaire.
The technical investigation completed by our Cyber Security Consultants uses only publicly available information and non-invasive tools. Therefor it will not create any disruption to your regular business operations.
How does a Cyber Risk Exposure Assessment work?
A Cyber Risk Exposure Assessment comprehensively evaluates your organisation's cyber security posture. Our primary goal is identifying and quantifying potential cyber risks and vulnerabilities that could threaten your organisation's information systems, data and operations.
This assessment is crucial for SMEs as cybercriminals often target them due to perceived weaker security measures than larger organisations.
Our assessment process follows the guidelines and best practices outlined by the Centre for Internet Security (CIS) Controls. These controls, which are globally recognised and regularly updated cyber security measures, allow your organisation to strengthen its security and reduce cyber risk exposure.
Does my business need a Cyber Risk Exposure Assessment?
While it is highly recommended for all SMEs to undergo a Cyber Risk Exposure Assessment, it is not an absolute requirement mandated by law or regulation. However, such an assessment offers significant benefits and can be considered a best cybersecurity practice.
Why is Cyber Risk Exposure Assessment Important?

Understand Vulnerabilities: Identifies weak points in systems and processes, enabling proactive security measures.
