Acuity announces the next release of its award-winning, cyber risk management platform STREAM. In this latest release, they have introduced the ability to customise workflows that automatically execute and inform users in real-time of risks, deadlines, and responsibilities. Managers can assign, track and check the progress of activities, and users are prompted with alerts for upcoming or overdue tasks. As a result of this upgrade, users can: Spend more time on the tasks that matter and less time on administration. Make better decisions by having clear visibility to risk and compliance on-demand and centralised in a single location. Respond faster by monitoring the status of scheduled activities, including due dates, and the person responsible. Enhance quality and consistency across the enterprise by ensuring that everyone is following company standards. Today’s digital economy is dynamic and fraught with risk, and STREAM is designed to respond to this challenging environment by allowing workflows to be added, viewed, edited, or terminated any time as needed.
