Abstract: Given the strong threats and available solutions, WISER (www.cyberwiser.eu) comes at the right time to address the cyber resilience issue, by putting in place precisely what is required: A portfolio of services aimed at assessing and monitoring cyber risks faced by organisations. The communication style chosen by WISER is direct and aimed to the apical positions of any organisation, helping them to interpret each scenario and supporting them in the decision-making process to mitigate exposure to cyber risks. WISER delivers an agile and easy-to-implement risk management methodology, without the need for six-figure security budgets, complex and time-consuming procedures, or dedicated teams of external consultants.

How WISER is paving the ground for cyber security challenges in the Digital Single Market

Authors: Elena González (ATOS), Antonio Álvarez (ATOS), Aljosa Pasic (ATOS)

Focus: Started in June 2015, the WISER H2020 Innovation Action will deliver, in late 2017, a cyber-risk management framework that dynamically assesses the cyber risk to which the client ICT infrastructure is exposed. This is done by continuously monitoring the risk associated to the cyber-climate of its ICT operational environment. It considers not only the technical side of cyber risk but also incorporates the business side, including socio-economic impact assessment.

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.
