The cyber governance health check is formed of 2 elements. The first stage is the ‘tracker’, an online tool to assess and report levels of cyber security awareness and preparedness across the FTSE 350, from a governance perspective. Completion of the tracker has resulted in this aggregated tracker report, as well as confidential individual benchmarking reports for each participating company.

The second stage will be the ‘diagnostic’, an audit-based tool which builds on the results of the tracker. The diagnostic will assess and report areas of cyber security vulnerability and good practice, and suggest what actions management can take to address vulnerabilities and build on good practice. This stage will be rolled out over the next 6 months.
