Know your enemy, and know thyself
Bad actors are remarkably sophisticated about exploiting system vulnerabilities—and remarkably successful. A security risk assessment can identify gaps in your security defenses, laying the groundwork for reinforcement and repair.
- Identify and understand existing vulnerabilities
- Develop a prioritized improvement roadmap
- Forecast and budget resources needed to close gaps
- Respond to audit documentation
The team approach to security risk assessment
Organizations of any size are targeted if hackers see value in launching threats against them. That’s why when we evaluate your business, we leave no stone unturned. Every assessment we perform is characterized by:
A comprehensive approach
One penetration test isn’t enough. We study your security environment from every angle, pinpointing any potential weaknesses.
Our risk assessment team holds CMMC AB, ISC2, ISACA, and GIAC industry certifications, along with vendor certifications from Cisco, Microsoft, AWS, Fortinet, and EMC.
A plan for the future
Based on the outcomes of vulnerability assessments, penetration tests, and other reviews, our security experts produce a prioritized mitigation plan.
5 steps to security risk assessment
Security risk assessment is based on research, not guesstimates. Each assessment follows the following five-step process.
Pre-assessment worksheet. A high-level inventory helps determine the scope, level, and focus of an engagement.
Security posture evaluation. We evaluate business and technology alignment, business impact, and policy and procedure needs.
Compliance assessment. May be required to fulfill specific regulatory or compliance requirements, or to assess alignment with internal standards.
Penetration testing. Our experts probe your environment, flagging all potential and existing security gaps. The results are translated into an overall risk score; the higher the score, the more urgent the mitigation efforts.
Risk assessment plan. This customized action plan functions as a roadmap, prioritizing actions needed for immediate and ongoing security improvement.
Next steps: Post risk assessment
Based on the results of your risk assessment, we develop a risk reduction plan that aligns with both risk levels and alignment with business needs. The plan outlines how to optimally protect your environment against ransomware and other cyber attack vectors for:
Private and public clouds
Other critical infrastructure components
Knowledge is power
Our experts have compiled research and recommendations to help you better understand threats, protection, and solutions.
