How to generate a HERO reportlink

The High-level Executive Report Overview is designed for periodic reporting of the overall progress of your organisation in managing your sensitive data risk with the Ascema system. The report gives a graphical representation of a number of perspectives on your data risk and the mitigation of that risk.

The HERO report shows long term trends towards managing your information risk, when you first start using your Ascema system the HERO report will be blank due to the lack of this longer term data. As you build up a history of using the system over time more HERO report options will become available to you.
