HALOCK Security Labs and CIS (Center for Internet Security) have co-developed the CIS Risk Assessment Method (RAM) to help organizations find their balance between security and business while evaluating and implementing the CIS Controls. CIS RAM helps organizations define their acceptable level of risk, and determine whether their use of the CIS Controls is risk-appropriate. This new method is the first to be based on the Duty of Care Risk Analysis Standard (DoCRA) so it helps organizations evaluate cyber risk in a way that is clear to legal authorities, regulators, executives, lay people, and security practitioners.
CIS RAM is an information security risk assessment method that helps organizations design and evaluate their implementation of the CIS Controls. CIS RAM provides instructions, examples, templates, and exercises for conducting risk assessments. And because CIS RAM is based on the DoCRA Standard, its risk assessments meet the requirements of established information security risk assessment standards and demonstrate whether safeguards are “reasonable” and “appropriate” as regulators and judges often require.
HALOCK partners with organizations looking to transform their business through proactive security measures to stay ahead of the threat landscape. If you are looking for an information security advisor that can diagnose and treat the risks that are threatening your business, contact a HALOCK security consultant today. We can help you achieve your information security goals.
