Information is one of the most valuable assets of any organisation, but equally poses one of the greatest risks. Midlands and Lancashire Commissioning Support Unit (MLCSU) has developed the U Assure tool to bring together complex processes in a user-friendly system for addressing information risks.
As the Information Commissioner now has the power to fine organisations up to £500,000, it is essential to ensure your information risk management is robust and your organisation understands:
U Assure is an automated process for assessing information assets and providing robust risk assessments, saving valuable staff time. Our product provides a sophisticated tool to record what information is held, and automatically assess the risk, and whether that information is processed and any associated controls.
The system helps to ensure that Information Asset Owners take responsibility for identifying the significance of each asset and managing their risk scores on an ongoing basis.
The recorded information feeds into an overall report for the Senior Information Risk Owner (SIRO), providing an overview of the criticality of assets and information risk across your organisation.
Information assets are most vulnerable to data breaches when in transit. Our product provides a joined-up approach to asset management by helping you to identify an information asset, whether it is shared and why, and the method(s) by which it is shared or received, in an easy to follow, step-by-step process.
Going hand-in-hand with the system is our Information Risk Management training. This gives an overview of why good information security practice is so essential and also provides users with full system training. The training is tailored to your organisation’s needs and the team will work with you to ensure that the system and information risk work programme are implemented in a practical and concise way.
