Aon Expands Cyber Risk Assessment to Address Exposures of Remote Work

For the insurance industry, this counts as ‘rapid response’. Cynicism aside, it’s good to see the risk model adapting too the ‘new normal’…:

Aon has expanded the scope of CyQu Enterprise, a cyber risk assessment methodology, to help analyze the cyber security impacts of recent network access or policy changes businesses have made to accommodate the increase in remote working due to COVID-19.

CyQu is an automated cyber self-assessment designed specifically for small-to-medium sized businesses. After completing a short survey, businesses receive an automated CyQu Score, which is benchmarked against industry peers, with a snapshot of the business’s reported cyber maturity and exposures across nine security domains. These areas now include remote working alongside data security, access control, endpoint and systems security, network security, physical security, application security, third-party exposure and business resilience.
