New version of vsRisk features complete ISO 27001 risk assessment template

Ely, United Kingdom, 11 January 2016 – Leading compliance software developer Vigilant Software has released the latest version of its risk assessment software, which includes a complete risk assessment template, thereby speeding up the process of conducting a risk assessment by up to 80%.

vsRisk™ is already known for its extensive range of features and simple user interface, and has helped hundreds of organisations cut costs and produce accurate, repeatable risk assessments, year after year.

The new feature allows companies to quickly get started with an information security risk assessment by applying and customising the risk assessment for their own purposes.

The sample risk assessment provides a prepopulated list of assets, assigned to a standard set of asset owners, for a typical organisation. Each asset further features a series of potential pre-assigned risks, in addition to the corresponding controls relevant to those risks from ISO 27001:2013 Annex A.

Since no company is the same, users will still have to make a judgement regarding the risk acceptance criteria as it applies to their own organisation, and the relevant likelihood and impact values for each asset and risk. Users can also add additional risks or edit the sample as they wish.

In addition, vsRisk is compatible with the ISO 27001 Documentation Toolkit, allowing users to simply select the appropriate prepopulated policies and/or procedures relevant to the specific controls, thereby further accelerating the process of selecting and deploying ISO27001-compliant control documentation and controls.

Developed by the world’s leaders in information security governance and ISO 27001 compliance, vsRisk has evolved over almost ten years and continues to deliver faster, better and more cost-effective risk assessment solutions to forward-thinking organisations globally.

vsRisk delivers the entire framework for conducting an ISO 27001-compliant risk assessment, making storing and tracking data much easier and faster, providing an audit trail for the risk assessment, and delivering the level of reliability and consistency that a risk assessment conduct any other way cannot.

vsRisk is available in a desktop-based Standalone version, and a network-enabled Multi-user version.
