Last year BIS issued a Call for Evidence on Cyber Standards and over 6 months engaged in discussions and debate with industry.  CRIF fully participated in these consultations and submitted a short paper to highlight and stress the importance of embedding wider risk management dimensions to help business understand the commercial implications of Cyber Risk and enable the Insurance Industry to better address the needs of the market.  
This led to the announcement by Rt Hon David Willetts of the intention of BIS following industry feedback to develop a Profile for Basic Technical Cyber Hygiene in conjunction with the BSI and with the support of Information Security Forum (ISF) and IASME.
