CRI’s Cyber Readiness Program is designed to be clear and accessible for SMEs regardless of size, technical expertise, and sector. Designed in collaboration with cyber experts from leading organizations, the Program focuses on human behavior, embedding basic cyber policies and processes into an organization. It also recognizes that organizations must work within their resources to advance cyber capabilities and may not be able to hire new people with the right skills to manage the risk.
The Program guides a designated Cyber Readiness Leader through five stages to help develop and implement cyber readiness policies. CRI’s Program takes the mystery out of what to do and when to do it. The Leader has access to CRI’s library of resources and tools available in each stage to help establish a culture of cyber readiness. From posters to policy templates and training materials, Cyber Leaders have everything they need to engage their workforce and build a cyber ready organization. The Program only requires a few short weeks and very limited technical expertise to complete.
The Cyber Readiness Program focuses on four primary issues that have the greatest impact on an enterprise’s cybersecurity: authentication and passwords, software updates, phishing, and USB use. Additionally, the Program helps SME leadership prioritize functions that should go to the cloud, a necessary step to creating a more secure environment for some applications. A template for a Cyber Incident Response Plan is also provided that companies can customize.
