The book defines 10 important basic principles for a coherent cyber security policy.  You can find our brief summary below ! the obvious questions however remains : how are these principles implemented in your company ?

To help you with this important analysis, Cybercontract developed a unique online Cybertest  that finds its theoretical basis in the Belgian Cyber Security Guide.  Not only did we transform this book into an online test, Cybercontract also added the entire "chapter" of cyberinsurance-coverages to the test and created a powerful scoring-model allowing uw to visualize your company's situation and immediately highlight the 3 principles that need your immediate attention.

We do not limit ourselves to analysing prevention and naming problems.  We also try to estimate which ready-to-use actions you can take today to increase the cyber security in/of your company.  You get an overview of the relevance of 10 possible actions of which we explain 3 in detail.  And we examine the specific relevance of 11 insurance covers for your situation.
