    Risk Register Template

    ISO 27001 is a risk based management system that requires the management of risk. In fact, just being in business can be risky so having an effective way to manage risk is crucial.

    I am Stuart Barker and I created the risk register template based on over 20 years in information security to be as simple and effective as it can possibly be.

    It is easy enough for the novice with the additional elements such as residual risk management for the seasoned practitioner. This risk register template is a must-have.

    To save you time I have pre populated it with common risks.

    I also included a built in management dashboard and report to show risk status, risk treatment and residual risk so you can really show the impact of your risk management efforts simply and effectively to management and auditors.

    What format is the risk register template in?

    Answer: The risk register template is in Microsoft Excel format

    Will I need to hire consultants to use the risk register template?

    Answer: No. The risk register template is designed to be easy to implement and easy to configure. It comes with an easy to follow step by step guide. You are provided with a free hour of training if you need it.

    Is the risk register template the only template I need?

    Answer: It depends on what you are trying to achieve. It works as a stand alone template but is designed to be part of a ISO 27001 Templates Toolkit that meet the needs of your business. We sell the ISO 27001 Templates Toolkit at a significant discount.

    How long will it take me to implement risk register template?

    Answer: We estimate that on average it will take you less than 1 hour. The templates require information that you know so there is nothing complicated.

    How secure are the payments?

    Answer: Payments are handled entirely through Stripe. They are very secure. We do not handle the payment transaction. We do not store, process or transmit your card holder data.

    Is there a portal version of the ISO 27001 Toolkit?

    Answer: No, we do not support portals. There are too many downsides to portals from ongoing costs, training, ambiguity on where the data is and how secure it is … the list is endless. The disadvantages far out way any benefits for what is a glorified document storage solution akin to One Drive or Dropbox. For small business and professionals we do not see any benefit in portals.

    Who are you and how do I know the ISO Toolkit is any good?

    Answer: The author is Stuart Barker who has been in governance risk and compliance for over 20 years. He has worked for some of the worlds largest organisations, and some of the smallest. He built and sold a cyber security consultancy and actively consults on ISO 27001 today. You can check out / stalk or connect with Stuart here

    Can I use the risk register template for more than 1 business? For my clients?

    Answer: Yes.
