This page lists the recent product updates to Cyberday and biggest upcoming new features

New, clarified dashboard

Dashboard of Cyberday was clarified and at the same time more status information was introduced.

The main emphasis on the Dashboard is still on the activated frameworks and the contents of the own management system (grouped by themes).

New information has also been added to the right column:

  • The total content of the management system
  • Latest updated reports
  • Progress of total number of events in the past 8 weeks

More settings for "embed" type reports

Embed type reports in Cyberday include e.g. privacy notices (GDPR  framework).

You can now use two new settings when editing these reports:

  • Include descriptions - Each databank can include its own, free description directly from the documentation card
  • Filter included items by their status - You can select only the databanks that have been set to "Processed" status to be included in the report

Send "due soon" and "due today" notifications via Teams

When an item is due in 7 days or due today, the bot of Cyberday Teams app will now send the owner a reminder.

Mention a user on the event log, he gets notification via Teams or email

In Cyberday all items include an event log, where users can also type in their own, timestamped comments.

This log can also be utilized to facilitate collaboration with colleagues. You can use @-sign to mention another user in the log.

The user is now notified of this directly inside MS Teams or via email, if your account isn't connected to Teams. Notification includes a direct link straigh to the item where the comment was posted to.

"Add participants" to a task

When you want to delegate the implementation of a task to certain responsible persons through Cyberday, you can use the "Add participants" function on the task card.

This works well in situations where, for example, the implementation of a task differs from unit to another and for this purpose it is desired to involve the persons in charge of the units. It may also be important to delegate a certain tasks to e.g. data system owners (e.g. reviewing access rights), which can also be performed in this style.

When a person is marked as a participant in a task, he or she sees the task as well as the implementation instructions written by the owner in his or her Taskbook, but it is clearly different from the tasks in which the person is the owner.

new feature

Clearer event log under an invidiual item

We made the event log of an individual item look clearer. For example, users' own comments or additions on the log are now highlighted more along with events that affect the status of the item.

The log is also now updated in real time as changes are made.

Workflows for work records and their visibility on table views

Documentation lists for work records, i.e. Risks, Audits or Continuity plans, have their own workflow in Cyberday.

This workflow is displayed above the table view and allows you to easily filter only the items at a particular stage.

An individual item (e.g. a risk) is also automatically forwarded in the workflow as the risk owner marks questions as done on the documentation card.

October 8, 2021
small improvement

Documentation sub types - Data assets, work records, stakeholders

From the All documentation -view, you can now see more clearly what kinds of documentation have accumulated in your Cyberday account.

In the future, we will make further modifications so that, for example, the documentation related to data assets better communicates links to other data assets and the documentation related to work results (e.g. risk management) has a stronger workflow which describes progress in the work.

October 1, 2021

Main data asset owners available as automated units

In Cyberday units are used e.g. to target guidelines to relevant staff. In the future, you will can also require a certain unit to participate in the execution of a specific task.

Now the owners of the most important data assets (such as data systems, databanks, risks, units) operate as automatic units in Cyberday. For example, you can target a guideline to all data system owners, and this user list is automatically updated according to the documentation.

October 1, 2021

Monitor the actions of different users in the All events -view

We developed user filtering for this view. If you are the most active administrator for your account, you can now easily set the event log to show events from others than yourself, so you can see who has been helping you get cyber security work forwards.

September 24, 2021
small improvement

Multilingual staff guidelines and training possible

You can now specify in Cyberday settings which guideline languages you want allow for employees.

If more than one language is enabled, employees will see the language selection in the left menu of the Guidebook.

Cyberday sample guidelines automatically work well multilingually. For the time being, you must use the "official" language of the organization for your own custom guidelines or write all versions in the content of the guideline.

September 24, 2021
small improvement

Acceptable risk level

A setting for "acceptable level of risk" has been introduced to support risk management. This can be configured via the Settings view.

The idea of an acceptable level of risk is to tell the user whether, based on the current risk evaluation, the risk requires more detailed treatment or whether it can be directly accepted.

September 17, 2021

Improved Reporting-page

We briefly revamped the Reporting page. When you go to Reporting, you'll immediately see all the reports you've created on your account.

When you go to framework-specific Reporting page, you'll still see all report templates you haven't yet created in the same style as before.

September 17, 2021

Overdue and pending items on "All documentation" page

As an admin you can utilize the "All documentation" view to understand the readiness related to documenting your data assets (data systems, databanks, etc.), stakeholders (system providers, data processors) or your own digital security work (risk management, impact assessments).

Now you can also see from this table a summary of how many items in each list are overdue (due date in the past and not in the status "processed") or pending for review (review interval is set and in the past).

September 17, 2021
small improvement

Management system summary -report created

We created a new report template, that enables you to communicate the overall concept of your cyber security management system, the most important responsibilities amongst your people and give an overall summary of compliance with different frameworks.

If you have any wishes related to reporting, please feel free to contact us in chat or at team@cyberday.ai.

All events -log now includes reporting-related events

Log shows events when any of the users:

  • Create a new report
  • Updates data on an existing report
  • Publishes a new report version
  • Deletes a report

Risk level and risk evaluation scale selection

In the context of cyber security risk management, a clear risk level is now presented for each risk, which is calculated automatically through the severity and probability choices made on the risk card. You may want to either sort or filter your own risk list according to risk level, for example, to see the most critical, untreated risks.

The scale used in the risk assessment can also be modified on the Settings page. Scale 1-3 produces risks of level 1-9, scale 1-5 produces significantly more variability (levels 1-25).

August 27, 2021
small improvement

Easier navigation between reports and content editing

For example, when you view the "Records of processing activities" report and notice a gap in the data for e.g. a databank, you can now easily jump to the data card to make edits, and then use the Back-button to jump back to the report. The user is automatically scrolled to the same location in the report, which helps the switching between long reports and the data cards.

August 27, 2021
small improvement

System ID added as an optional field to Data systems

For data systems, "system ID" can now be activated as an additional field along with previously added "system nickname". System ID and nickname are displayed after the "official name" in the administrator views and tables, but not in reports taken out of Cyberday.

Example: Student management system (Wilma, 12511621)

August 27, 2021
small improvement

Improved "All tasks" -view

From the All Tasks view, you can now see e.g. the connections of tasks to the requirements of the different frameworks. This allows you to e.g. identify tasks that increase compliance across multiple frameworks and otherwise communicate the importance of tasks to the rest of the team.

We also brought in quick links through which you can quickly see the so-called problematic tasks that are either overdue or awaiting review from the task owner.

August 20, 2021
small improvement

Add multiple documentation items at once

In certain documentation lists, you can now create a large list of items at once with the names you want by using the "Add many at once" -option.

August 13, 2021
small improvement

Improved "Theme summary" -view

We highlighted tasks better on prioritized order on the front page of a theme (e.g. System management).

The right column now also shows better info about the documentation amount and statuses and guideline "readiness levels".

August 13, 2021
small improvement

Better filtering on visual reports

Visual reports can now also be viewed from the perspective of a single action process. Useful especially if there is a lot of content.

More developments and new versions of visual reports are coming in the coming months.

small improvement

Guidebook expanded with case examples and skill tests

We published improvements to employee cyber awareness features, which are reflected as expansions to the Guidebook view:

  • There are "case examples" available for each guideline that describe real-life situations that have occurred as a result of non-compliance with the guidelines
  • Case examples must be read before accepting the actual guideline, if you enable them from organisation settings
  • After reading the guidelines for one theme (e.g. Remote work and mobile devices), the employee can be asked to take a short skill test
  • The skill test means a few (3-8) multiple-choice questions related to the guidelines in the theme
  • From the organization dashboard admins can see these guidelines-related contents on the guideline card

These features will be optional, i.e. you can enable them yourself if you want in Organization Dashboard -> Settings -> Employee training in Guidebook. The new features do not automatically jump on, but by default the Guidebook still works in a straightforward way for accepting the instructions.

August 13, 2021
new feature

Clearer data presentation on documentation cards

We made some changes using a clearer layout, familiar form styles, and slightly larger fonts to make the Cyberday documentation card look familiar even to those users who visit the service only occasionally to update a specific item they own.

Only visual changes have been made to the card. The user experience is otherwise unchanged.

June 11, 2021

New language versions available - translation testers sought

Currently Cyberday also works in German and more languages are coming along soon. Language versions will initially be included with a beta mode, through which interested active users can report and correct unclear / incorrect translations.

Contact us directly through Cyberday if you would like to contribute to the improvement of a translation. We will reward you for your effort. 🙂

Swedish available as a language in Cyberday

Cyberday now works in Swedish. This means for us:

  • all reporting is also possible in Swedish (including accounts with a different main language)
  • an individual user can use Swedish as a working language (if it is more natural for him, even if the other account works in another main language)
  • Swedish is available as account's main language (e.g. new users are invited by default in this language)
May 14, 2021
small improvement

We will start creating examples of "process descriptions" for tasks

The purpose of the example description is to give a more precise idea of how a task could be implemented in the operation of one's own organization.

You can easily copy the example as a basis for your own description and make refinements from the perspective of your own action after that.

May 14, 2021
new feature

Clearer structure and filtering for Tiedonhallintamalli-report

Our aim was e.g. to use space on reports more clearly and efficiently, as especially many information management reports can often become very lengthy. At the same time, we enabled the content of the "Tiedonhallintamalli" to be filtered, i.e. the model can only be applied to the desired service areas or operational processes, for example.

May 7, 2021
new feature

Navigation and menu structure improved

The account of an active Cyberday organisation will include plenty of content, and sometimes it can be confusing to navigate between differen linked elements.  

We now made an effort to help users keep track of where we are going at any given time. The left menu now responds better to which theme (e.g. data system management) or which requirements framework (e.g. ISO 27001 Core) the navigation has originally started from. The menu shows more content than before, but at the same time always clearly emphasizes the theme under which and in which list we are at any given time.

April 30, 2021
new feature

New Task-card design

New task card separates the requirements and the actual execution of the task more clearly.

When the task is still pending, the requirement tab is shown along with the button to "Activate" this task on your account. When it's time to start executing the task, the "Assurance" tab is shown by default.

April 23, 2021
new feature

Small updates to Dashboard

Cyberday dashboard now presents on theme cards also the number of active tasks. Now the dashboard cards are arranged according to the full task amount on theme, not just pending tasks. This way the cards will less often change their order and navigation will be easier.

April 23, 2021
small improvement

Risk management report updated

We created a new feature that can be used to raise "active" content to reports directly from Cyberday documentation. The report can then be distributed directly in Teams to e.g. the management team or the auditor.

The risk management report was updated to use this feature. The report first includes a general summary of risks by major risks and then examples of the results of your own risk management.

Other report "Risk management procedure and results" is a more detailed report that describes the organization's process for implementing risk management in more detail.

Events-view lists all changes on your account

Use the Events -> All view to see all activities on your Cyberday account. Filter further down by e.g. owner, theme, etc.

Different event types include:

  • Personnel guidelines - Guideline acceptance or comments from employees.
  • User management - New added users, new added employees, edited user levels, accepted invitations, removed users.
  • Content updates - Edits on documentation cards, task descriptions or guideline content.
  • Reviews - Marking a task or documentation item as reviewed
  • New content creation - Adding a new task, guideline or documentation item
April 16, 2021
new feature

New summary views: All tasks, documentation or guidelines

Use these summary view e.g. to:

  • quickly find a necessary task, guidelines or documentation list
  • view all tasks, that are owner by a leaving employee
  • view all overdue tasks
April 16, 2021
new feature

Separation to selected documentation dropdowns - current items vs. suggestions

At certain documentation points, e.g. when selecting service areas for processes, an organization may want to create a pre-definedlist of options that all users should make the choice from.

In this case, the suggestions in the example library should not be strongly imposed on users. We created a new field type where the first level shows the current selections, the second level the library suggestions.

April 1, 2021
small improvement

Selected data fields in the documentation that link to the tasks also display suggestions from the library

For example, when treating security risks, the 'Risk management measures' field on the risk card now not only lists previously added tasks, but also displays suggestions from the Cyberday library.

The idea is to help the risk management phase so that example tasks can be used to analyze ways to reduce risk. Are we missing some important tasks that would be needed to manage the risk?

When you decide to enable the task, click on the check box and then set the owner and deadline for the task. This information will also appear on the risk card after this.

P.s. Similar data fields can be found e.g. from data cards for security incidents, impact assessments and data breaches.

When a task status is changed, dont' reload the entire task list

A small fix to improve usability / speed

It is also possible to arrange the documentation table with the information in the "owner" column

A small improvement to make the documentation table even easier to use.
