ProcessUnity Cybersecurity Program Management

Risk Administration

Map Risks and Threats to Relevant Enterprise Controls, Industry Regulations and Standards

The fast-evolving nature of the risk landscape is impacting today’s organizations’ confidentiality, integrity and data availability on various fronts. Cyberattacks have become more targeted, persistent and financially damaging compared to a few years ago. Meanwhile, ransomware and supply chain attacks continue to cause enormous business disruptions and financial losses across multiple industries. It is critical for organizations to track, monitor, assess and prioritize all risks, threats and vulnerabilities that have the potential to adversely impact the organization’s operations, reputation or finances.

ProcessUnity CPM’s Risk Administration capabilities trigger scheduled risk and threat reviews, capture responses and evidence, and automatically roll up metrics and trends into an overall cybersecurity program status to guide strategic decisions.

With ProcessUnity CPM Risk Administration, organizations:

  • Identify, track and monitor risks and threats with the greatest potential for organizational impact
  • Define risk categories, determine risk families and establish organizational risk groupings for remediation
  • Map cybersecurity controls to risks and threats to increase control effectiveness
  • Report on critical threats and risks organization-wide for visibility and project prioritization

Catalog and Track Risks and Threats

ProcessUnity CPM’s Risk Administration includes a user-defined risk and threat register. This data is categorized by the organization and aggregated to groups internally. Based on the organization’s enterprise risk methodologyProcessUnity CPM helps cybersecurity teams evaluate and maintain a list of risks and threats. These can be managed in alignment with the organization’s risk tolerance level to protect the organization’s operations, reputation and finances. 

Map Cybersecurity Controls, Standards and Regulations to Risks and Threats

Cybersecurity frameworks provide a recognized library of controls based on relevant government or industry regulations and standards that organizations leverage to standardize their security practices. ProcessUnity CPM includes the Secure Controls Framework (SCF) metaframework, a framework of frameworks that allows organizations to map their enterprise controls to risks and threats for deeper evaluation of control coverage, effectiveness and compliance. 

Thorough Risk and Threat Review

Through automation, the ProcessUnity platform sends risk and threat reviews to the internal owners responsible for oversight. The review results enable cybersecurity teams to prioritize and target risks and threats for remediation or adopt additional protective security controls to reduce enterprise risk.  

Track Issues for Continuous Improvement

Real-time issue management reduces the time it takes to create, track and remediate issues while systematizing the issue creation process to reduce subjectivity. ProcessUnity CPM provides a centralized repository for managing these issues and their remediation plans. Issues can be assigned severity ratings, and appropriate personnel can be notified to take any necessary action.  

Leverage Reports and Dashboards for Insight

ProcessUnity CPM’s interactive reports and dashboards provide real-time visibility into the status of an organization’s risks and threats Drill-down capabilities allow users to quickly find the details in any areas of concern while ProcessUnity’s extensive custom reporting capabilities enable the creation of role-specific reports. Tailored cybersecurity reports help demonstrate to executives and regulators the existence of a consistent, reliable and repeatable program. Reports also help cybersecurity teams identify critical control weaknesses across risk categories to provide insight into which controls need to be examined or improved.
