1 April (Tel Aviv) - SaaS-based cyber risk platform provider CyGov announced today that in light of the Coronavirus crisis, it has released a new proprietary cyber resilience management resource. It is designed to help the unprecedented number of businesses and organizations operating off-site to better protect themselves against increased cyber threats. The resource will be available free of charge to both current customers and non-customers.
The Coronavirus crisis has seen an unparalleled number of employees working remotely. Companies that assign employees to remote locations may be inadvertently compromising systems and data. Too often, workers unwittingly use devices that are not properly protected from attack, exposing entire organizations to profound risk. There is every reason to expect cyber criminals and malicious actors to exploit the situation by launching new cyber attacks and campaigns.
In order to tackle these extraordinary circumstances, CyGov has paused everyday operations and has formed a Coronavirus task force. This team has created a new and unique version of our risk management platform open to all organizations caught in the crisis. The new solution —based on the NIST 800-46 framework—enables business leaders to better manage cyber security systems under today’s abnormal conditions.
The new framework contains a proprietary set of rules governing risks pertaining to a redeployed workforce. It creates a unique lens for threats generated by the pandemic and ensures that an organization uses best practices to manage them. By enabling business leaders to quickly survey readiness for remote working and personal device use, the platform empowers them to mitigate cyber risk by enacting best practices for these challenging times.
As the world contends with the unprecedented threat of Coronavirus, CyGov is offering both current customers and non-customers use of the new platform to identify, monitor and prepare for risks— free of charge.
In addition, CyGov’s Coronavirus task force will provide an intelligence news feed to keep organizations up to date on emerging cyber threats, relevant developments and attempted breaches. This will provide users with a comparative context for their own analysis, preparation and action. The task force will continue to release additional resources to help users deepen their understanding of unfolding threats and the best security-enhancing measures.
CyGov CEO Yair Solow said “As Coronavirus sweeps the globe, our first thought is for the health and safety of our customers, friends and their families. Now is the time to be both caring and alert. Therefore, as cyber security experts, we are dedicating our efforts during this difficult period to help customers and other organizations manage their risk. We’ve taken it upon ourselves to step up and do everything we can. As day-to-day issues evolve, we feel obligated to share our expertise and honored to be able to do so.”
