Our May Academy series looks at how to assess cyber health and risks.

Hackers gain access to systems by exploiting a series of vulnerabilities in their escalation to achieving data theft or destruction. A concept widely known as the ‘kill chain’, it is best represented by a pyramid where the available surface area (or systems) that are exploited at each level narrows on their approach to targeted services, network(s), user rights and behaviours, and ultimately – data. Although there is a greater risk of exploitation at the lower tiers, it is spread out. Yet at higher levels, it is more focused – and has more impact that leads to damage.

This paradigm of cyber risk provides a context for assessing the health of an organisation’s cybersecurity.

This session continues from the first with a focus on identifying common cyber risks from the ‘services’ layer and provides an overview of the methods for assessing cyber heath. It will include scripts, demonstrations, and data analysis techniques – as well as references useful for collating information.

Ahead of this session, we recommend reading the following cases:
