WISER on ERCIM News 106

WISER delivers a cyber-risk management framework to assess, monitor and suggest mitigation options for cyber risks in real time, while incorporating socio-economic impact aspects, building on current state of the art methodologies and tools, and leveraging best practices from multiple industries and international initiatives. The WISER framework features cyber-risk modelling techniques and monitoring tools that observe the state of ICT infrastructure and services in an organisation. These provide the information necessary to evaluate risk levels and drive decision support tools to recommend effective mitigation options based on cost-benefit analysis of the risk impact. The aim of WISER is to increase cyber risk awareness as well as make cybersecurity understandable to management personnel and facilitate their decisions about risk management and inclusion of cybersecurity systems.
