What is Cybersecurity GRC (governance, risk and compliance)?

Cybersecurity threats today evolve at a rapid pace. How do you ensure your organisation is continuously secured? You do it with a thorough risk assessment of current and future business assets and processes. You do it by building resilient governance practices that can adapt and strengthen with evolving threats. And the StickmanCyber team is equipped to assist with all your cybersecurity GRC (governance, risk, and compliance) requirements.

  • What is a Cybersecurity Risk Assessment?


    A cybersecurity risk assessment is designed to get a detailed view of the possible cyber threats to your business, and your capabilities to manage the associated risks. The range of threats varies across businesses, so an in-depth risk assessment becomes the first and key step in understanding the gaps and vulnerabilities in your existing policies and procedures. Other than understanding your own risk profile, risk assessments can help in identifying third and fourth-party risk, which is a crucial part of the journey in getting secure.

    Without a thorough risk assessment in place, your business might not discover where the challenges lie, and what aspects of cybersecurity to prioritise and invest in, to prevent disruption. Businesses are battling an extremely high rate of cyberattacks, across different industries. From malware and ransomware to phishing, to denial-of-service attacks; the threats out there are numerous. And any one of them can wreak havoc on your data, revenues, and reputation.
