BAE releases online cyber risk tool assessor
"A new online cyber risk tool has been produced to allow organisations to assess their cyber security strengths and weaknesses.
The tool has been created in response to research from BAE Systems that reveals weaknesses in UK cyber security measures that are putting businesses at risk. It will allow businesses to also understand where there might be vulnerabilities to attack.
The survey polled 100 business leaders, C-Suite level or decision makers within their IT department, from UK private sector organisations with more than 1,000 employees.
The research showed that one-in-five business leaders don't know if their organisation has the right cyber security controls in place. However, 79% believe that they have the appropriate security controls in place to defend against cyber attacks.”
