Protecting against cyber breaches.
Many organisations are introducing home working, often for the first time. This can open them up to unfamiliar risks. In many cases their people may grapple to use the technology.
Our cybersecurity assessment will help those organisations assess their state of readiness and identify how they could address any issues with their people working from home.
Organisations can face huge financial losses and a negative impact on their reputation as a result of a cybersecurity breach.
The average data breach costs an organisation $3.92m, according to IT consultancy IBM.
Some 32% of all data breaches involve phishing, while 29% of all data breaches involve stolen credentials, according telecoms company Verizon.
All organisations need to ensure their people have the cybersecurity knowledge to do their jobs and to meet their compliance requirements, when working from home.
Supporting organisations to work securely from home
Assessing core cybersecurity knowledge
Organisations can assess their people to ensure they have the cybersecurity knowledge required to do their jobs and to identify knowledge gaps when working from home.
Ensuring business continuity
Organisations can effectively and securely manage the transition to working from home.
Organisations need to protect critical data and meet their IT and cybersecurity compliance requirements, such as for GDPR or financial regulations.
Providing the right information
It helps give organisations the right information on what their employees know and what they don’t know. This will give them a clear picture to inform any decisions on training and development.
Robust assessments to measure cybersecurity knowledge
Getting a clear picture
The assessment helps HR and IT professionals get a clear picture of how their people will be able to work from home.
Identifying appropriate training
Cybersecurity for home-based workers identifies cybersecurity knowledge gaps, helping HR and IT teams recommend the appropriate training.
Delivering for consultants
IT security consultants can use the test to help their customers to identify strengths and weaknesses and get an understanding of competence across organisations.
Questionmark does not offer training based on the results, so its assessments are completely independent.
The assessment has been developed by Questionmark security and assessment experts, and is valid, reliable, fair and defensible.
Clear and detailed feedback on what people get wrong, providing areas where training is required.
Organisations can run reports to view performance across teams.
The assessment can be adapted by organisations that want to add their own questions for their specific needs.
Random question selection
The assessment uses random selection so each person taking the test gets a slightly different sequence of questions, so organisations can test people again to measure knowledge later
Integrated into the platform
For existing customers, Cybersecurity for home-based workers will run on the repository in their Questionmark platform.
Easy to use
For organisations without the Questionmark platform, the assessment can be accessed through a web link, requiring no installation.
Questionmark’s G-Cloud listing covers Cybersecurity for Home-based Workers within the latest iteration of the UK Government G-Cloud Framework, G-Cloud 12.
