THREAT METRE
LOW
LEVEL 1 - LOW Cyber security baseline. While some threat to customers exists, standard operating procedures, threat monitoring and mitigation are effective. This level of global risk is not elevated, reflecting normal daily operating conditions.
THREAT METRE
GUARDED
LEVEL 2 - GUARDED Intelligence exists that slightly increases the threat to customers. Although unconfirmed, emerging threats reflect a need for improved awareness without specific action.
THREAT METRE
ELEVATED
LEVEL 3 - ELEVATED Qualified threats require customers to address an imminent threat. Actionable intelligence exists for a threat to customers that is either likely or could have high impact. Customers should inform operational groups of the threat and dedicate resources accordingly.
THREAT METRE
HIGH
LEVEL 4 - HIGH A substantiated threat to customers, such as active exploitation, warrants immediate and focused action. The likelihood of damage is high, with possible significant financial impact.
THREAT METRE
SEVERE
LEVEL 5 - SEVERE A major attack is underway that directly impacts customers and other global institutions. The impact of such an attack is significant, warranting an immediate response. Organisations should initiate emergency response teams to respond to this level of risk.
