Monitoring your cyber risks in real time – XLAB partners as integrator of security mechanisms
CyberWISER has launched CyberWISER Essential and CyberWISER Plus, two advanced services for monitoring vulnerabilities and incidents, complementing its CyberWISER Light tool for risk assessment and vulnerability testing. XLAB partners as integrator of security mechanisms for greater digital security, within the European project WISER.
The Internet and digital services play an increasing role in our business portfolios and have a growing impact on our daily lives. However, as digital services and cyberspace evolve, so do the cyber risks that organizations are exposed to.
All businesses are at risk, whether they are a Fortune 500 company, a family-run business, a utility company or a tech start-up. Yet, a staggering 80% of companies worldwide recognise they are insufficiently prepared to protect themselves against cyberattacks. Without proper risk management, they are putting a lot at stake, from direct economic impact such as business interruption and loss of customer or sensitive data to indirect impact such as brand damage and reduced ability to win new customers.
Tackling cyber risk management head on
To make cyber risk management affordable and doable by organisations of all types and services, CyberWISER has launched CyberWISER Essential and CyberWISER Plus, two advanced and innovative services, complementing its CyberWISER Light tool. Who benefits from using the new services? SMEs with critical online assets, IT systems and complex cyber systems such as critical infrastructures that can now benefit from real-time monitoring and assessment of cyber risks.
With CyberWISER Essential and CyberWISER Plus, users can monitor and manage their cyber risks much more effectively with insightful information about risks, vulnerabilities and incidents detected. The services provide both quantitative and qualitative data, enabling service users to turn information about security alerts into key business decisions with CEOs and CFOs working side-by-side with IT personnel. CyberWISER Plus includes a consultancy support service that can be tailored to specific business needs by the CyberWISER team of cyber security experts.
The CyberWISER Essential and CyberWISER Plus can be tested – for more information and services’ comparison, visit the official WISER website: https://www.cyberwiser.eu/services-test or contact the IT security teams at WISER or XLAB.
How early adopters are benefitting
“The level of sophistication of cyberattacks is increasing with at least three different ways of using the cyber weapon: cyber sabotage, cyber data theft, and cyber transfer of funds. WISER’s real-time risk assessment can quickly identify risk factors. This drastically reduces events that are high impact to business in the financial sector. CyberWISER Essential and Plus are helping us moving towards preventative measures to deal with cyber-crime”
Romina Colciago, Aon
“Working with WISER helped us a lot to increase the security awareness in our company. The monitoring framework makes you realise that there are indeed viscous wolves out there attempting to hack your network every day. You can trace these attempts through the system log files and take appropriate countermeasures. The system works as an early warning. In the test period, we asked an external company to try and hack our system, we could follow what they were doing every step of the way”
Jan Bastiaensens, ENERVALIS
“The cyber risk management functionalities of CyberWISER Essential and Plus provide an additional layer of security management and decision making capabilities currently not available. This will provide value to our business in the evolving energy products and services sector”
