The Communications Threat Assessment Protocol [CTAP-25] is an evidence-based and defensible approach to identifying and triaging risk in worrying, threatening and inappropriate communications directed at organisations and individuals, usually in the public-eye.
Designed for risk managers, it is a manualised evaluation tool for identifying communications statistically associated with a higher risk of unwanted security and reputational outcomes. It guides prioritisation of response and resource allocation in managing associated risks.
CTAP-25 acts as a Baseline Standard for fixated risk management. It helps clients to identify, triage and respond to fixated risk in a more confident, structured and controlled manner.
CTAP-25 removes the need to identify and respond to fixated risk solely on “gut-feel”. It closes a gap in corporate security standards with an evidence-based and defensible framework within which to take decisions.
