Summary of stated purpose

 

The aim of the toolkit is to enable Further Education institutions (FEIs) to calculate their exposure to risk in areas of information security and to offer formulae for risk reduction.

 

Completion of a risk register that identifies 10 business risks and enables institutions to identify areas and levels of risk in areas such as information security policy, physical access control, illegal software and viruses etc. In addition self-assessment is invited in areas of security responsibility, IT risk management, equipment security, asset management, access to secure areas, user access, data validation and business continuity. An overall risk rating is provided on completion.
