How to test & improve your cyber resilience
Securing information is far from being a technical issue for an organisation.
Depending on its size and its security needs, organisations must react in the most appropriate manner. Adopting good practices, taking the necessary measures and adjusting them proportionally: all this is part of the process to ensure information security. Most of all, it depends on performing a risk analysis on a regular basis.
CASES has developed an optimised analysis method (MONARC) to produce a comprehensive risk report, with suggested solutions. This method:
To make your organisation more cyber resilient, the security policy is used to formalise and coordinate all organisational and technical security procedures of the organisation.
Safeguarding an organisation is an ongoing process that is implemented based on security measures, evaluated in Impact the most feared, threats the most likely and vulnerabilities the most important.
This process involves the following steps:
This first step aims to correctly define the scope and context of the future system. It must also make it possible to identify and evaluate risks to develop a management plan. (It cannot, however, replace the risk analysis that must be done beforehand.)
The realisation step consists mainly of applying the security policy created in the previous step. Organisational and technical measures are put in place, behavioural measures are applied by staff.
The evaluation systems must have been described in the safety manual. The goal is to ensure that the procedures put in place work as intended. These evaluations can be of several types:
If evaluations and controls reveal inadequacies in certain procedures, corrections must be made.
The actions that will have been decided in the previous step will have to be implemented, i.e.:
Besides making a risk analysis and creating a security policy, organisations should also have a cyber threat intelligence (CTI) capability to address cyber threats effectively. Cyber threat intelligence is any type of information an organisation may use to understand the threats targeting or may target the organisation in the future.
MISP allows organisations to share information such as threat intelligence, indicators, threat actor information or any kind of threat which can be structured in MISP.
MISP users benefit from the collaborative knowledge about existing malware or threats. The aim of this trusted platform is to help improving the counter-measures used against targeted attacks and set-up preventive actions and and improve automated detection.
Whether it is a self-assessment or an assessment conducted with the help of a professional, test your information security maturity, data protection compliance, the efficiency of your contracts with ICT service providers, and your response to threats & incidents.
Evaluate your cybersecurity maturity in order to enhance your cyber risk protection.
Start here, fill out this free, 13-question questionnaire to find out in minutes about the status of your information security maturity level.
Based on your answers, you may read valuable recommendations on how you
can improve your cybersecurity awareness in the future.
If you meet a score of 65 out of 100, a CASES Diagnostic could be done for free by one of our CASES Cybersecurity experts.
Identify the general scope of the contractual relationship, in order to set up an acquisition, a lease, a development or any other service in the field of information and communication technologies.
Fit4Contract is a self-assessment tool that provides a list of basic information security requirements that are recommended to be considered in establishing the contractual relationship.
Check your contracts with this free self-assessment tool if you have information security concerns when working with external suppliers.
Identify your cybersecurity and data privacy concerns to negotiate and make better contracts with your suppliers.
Based on your answers, you receive a list of basic information security requirements, advised for establishing a good contractual relationship.
Don’t wait until it’s too late. Experience a real life disaster and prepare your team for the next “cyber crisis”, now.
ROOM#42 is a cyber incident crisis simulation, hosted by C3 Luxembourg.
Take part in this one-hour realistic cyberattack simulation with a maximum of seven other participants and learn how to react to cyberattacks with the help of professionals.
Develop your cyber reflexes during a simulated cyberattack.
Remember that one of the cornerstones of proper defence and prevention is coordinated cooperation and quick and correct decision-making.
Learn to attack your network before others do. Offensive security is also a mandatory ability nowadays.
This course will help security professionals to see the corporate network from the attackers ’perspective and select the necessary security mechanisms.
Before implementing protective measures, you should carry out at least a summary classification exercise over the data your organisation processes. This classification is important to gain an awareness of the true value (confidentiality, integrity and availability) of the data. Depending on its value, with regard to the expected impact, if data becomes compromised, you will be able to decide on the investment to set aside for data security.
CASES experts have developed Fit4Privacy, a new tool that will allow you to self-assess your privacy & data protection maturity level. This new self-assessment tool will be released soon.
