mini aonAon is signing onto WISER, an initiative tied to the EU’s innovation and research program, Horizon 2020. The goal of WISER is “to improve the cyber security practices at firms through an easy to use framework to assess cyber-crime, implement best practice and report serious compromises.”

Aon will help develop a “framework on which infrastructure and complex systems can be assessed for vulnerabilities.” The tools they will provide will be user friendly and be available for public and private sector users to “understand and quantify the consequences of cyber-crime activity on their networks.”

Giorgio Aprile, Director Financial Industry Advisory Services at Aon, stated “Aon’s involvement in this WISER project will drive practical business outcomes such as a real time IT assessment platform and a cyber-risk exposure model for non-traditional aspects of cyber risk.”
