Cyber Risk Governance

The role of Cyber Risk governance is to provide a decision making framework that is logical, robust and repeatable to govern an organisation’s Cyber risk management. In this way, an organisation will have a structured approach to make strategic and operational decisions about the management of cyber risk.

Cyber Overview



Governor enables you to draw maps of the Cyber Risk framework structure and to define the objectives, risks, systems, etc. that are related to that structure. For each item you can define the people in charge and the approach for assessing status. Governor then enables you to gather metrics and other data and present it to the relevant people so that they can make informed decisions.
