vsRisk, the ISO 27001 risk assessment software tool

Information security risk assessments – software versus spreadsheets

Organisations starting out with an information security programme often resort to spreadsheets when tackling the risk assessment phase.

Despite being trusted by professionals for more than 20 years, Excel spreadsheets were initially built for accountants and are not designed to deliver a risk assessment.

Experienced information security and risk management practitioners will be fully aware of the dangers of using spreadsheets, so they will always use purpose-built ISO 27001 risk assessment software tools instead.

Fully aligned with ISO 27001, vsRisk eliminates the need to use spreadsheets, which are prone to errors, and significantly cuts the consultancy costs that are typically associated with tackling an information security risk assessment.
