Willis to launch cyber security toolkit

| 6th Dec 13

Willis Group Holdings, the global risk adviser, is launching Cyber ATLAS, a complete security solution to help UK companies combat the threat of cyber crime.

Cyber ATLAS comprises e-Learning for all levels of staff, an online self-audit allowing organisations to test their current levels of security and a 24/7 incident response service providing first-class support and advice in the event of a cyber-breach.

Jonathan Brooks, Practice Leader for FINEX National at Willis, said: “Cyber criminals know that larger multinationals have the infrastructure to fight cyber crime so they often target the IT network and vulnerabilities of a small company to get into the network of the multinational.

BLM partner and cyber specialist, Nick Gibbons said: “Many of our large UK clients routinely ask their suppliers to provide written confirmation that their IT networks have good security protocols in place to protect data. It may seem obvious but any organisation that has a supply-chain is only as strong as the weakest link in that supply chain. The cyber age that we all now enjoy has also brought with it some very significant new risks.”
