Latest version of vsRisk™ introduces a sample risk assessment and delivers ISO 27001-compliant documents 

Ely, England, 18 March 2014Vigilant Software, the leader in compliance software, has launched the latest version of its innovative and powerful risk assessment software, vsRisk™. vsRisk 2.5 boasts brand new features that provide information risk assessors with even more benefits than the previous version.

vsRisk 2.5 identifies the controls that require documentation in ISO 27001:2013. It offers an optional built-in documentation toolkit that provides a complete set of customisable policies and procedures that can be applied as evidence of the controls that have been implemented. The latest version also includes an example risk assessment, as well as additional help and auto-suggest features.

Alan Calder, chief executive of Vigilant Software, says: “vsRisk 2.5 continues to build on the success of previous versions. The latest features make the risk assessment and ISO 27001-compliance process even more straightforward by introducing an example of an actual risk assessment. Document creation and management can be a challenge for any compliance project and this new version helps address it by identifying the necessary documents and providing the option of built-in document templates.”

vsRisk significantly reduces the time spent to perform an ISO 27001-compliant information security risk assessment. The integrated, searchable databases of threats, vulnerabilities and risk scenarios make the risk assessment process simple and intuitive. It features a controls console that offers a quick view of the status of controls and actions planned, while producing a set of exportable, reusable and audit-ready ISO 27001-compliant reports.

vsRisk 2.5 is compatible with the IT Governance ISO 27001 Documentation Toolkit, which features a full set of customisable documentation templates, policies and procedures needed for compliance with ISO 27001:2013.

In addition, UK customers will be pleased to know that the Cyber Essentials controls have also been added to the list of controls contained in vsRisk. vsRisk 2.5 now features seven control sets, including ISO 27001:2013, PCI DSS v3 and NIST SP 800-53.
