Following on a series of high-profile accolades, RSA Archer was recently recognized with two OperationalRisk Awards: Best Overall Provider of the Year Award; and Best Cyber Risk / Security Product Award. These two awards represent an acknowledgment of the ongoing importance of cyber risk management within an overall operational risk management program and RSA Archer’s leadership as a business risk management solution.
The RSA Archer Suite enables organizations to manage the breadth of operational risks that exist today. As it relates to information security, in particular, the RSA Archer Suite helps organizations understand what information is important to protect, where it is located within the organization, the risk it poses, the risk treatments in place to mitigate and transfer risk, the means to document control design and effectiveness tests, manage policies, enforce accountability for outstanding issues, and enable collaboration between IT and the rest of the organization, transforming traditional technical discussions of cyber security into a Business Driven Security discussion.
When announcing these awards the publisher stated:
“The [RSA Archer] system has not only proven itself to be reliable and insightful, according to users, but it has also made the monitoring and control of cyber risk accessible to users across the enterprise, from non-security functions to the CISO. Sitting within the broader RSA Archer governance, risk and compliance platform, the system can be used to identify threats that may harm the entire enterprise.
‘Business continuity manages their risk. Compliance and control evaluations manage their risk. RSA Archer has enhanced our ability to bring these areas together, and we’re finding that linking business continuity to security and to vendor risk provides a more comprehensive risk picture,’ explains one user.
Whilst comprehensive, RSA Archer has also proven flexible in its application, so that institutions’ risk management frameworks have not had to be reconfigured in order to accommodate the platform. By avoiding a prescriptive approach, the system has even been accessible to firms with well-established methodologies.
Judges recognized RSA’s flexibility as well as the technical capabilities of the platform.”
