Useful to know but within my organisation, it falls under the remit of IT department.

Really informative audio. Neatly discusses how to complete a cyber risk assessment detailing your physical and data assets.  

Classification of risks is really useful: IT, HR, Financial, Operational and Brand risks.

Identifying the risks for the risk register, then rating the risks,  adding costs and timescales is vital.

The prioritisation of the resources of the business against the risks then adding them to the forecast is also vital.

A reminder of performing annual security training for all staff is always useful.

Although cyber security is not necessarily part of my role, I appreciate that it affects finance as well as the rest of the company.  This was a useful podcast to help increase general awareness.
