Threat Assessment

We review and analyze your current processes, procedures and infrastructure using our detailed Cybersecurity Questionnaire and Assessment Tools. We review and prioritize the risks and develop a plan that will help you to be better prepared for any Cybersecurity related events and issues.

Our assessment tools are designed to identify and address the Cybersecurity environment at your company, covering topics across infrastructure, people, processes, procedures and application software. Our professionals conduct a detailed review and analysis of your policies and procedures and create or update them as required. We conduct phishing tests, install software tools to analyze network activity and configuration, uncover email issues, and analyze compliance such as PCI and HIPPA. Our goal is to help you simplify and streamline your Cybersecurity processes and procedures, achieving a very high level of protection, while keeping the total cost within your budget and reducing the impact on your daily operations. We will provide you with a detailed document that will show the current state of Cybersecurity at your company, any issues and risks, and a recommended an action plan. The assessment is designed to identify the business risks at your company, prioritize them, and determine what security measures and tools are required in order to mitigate these risks in a cost effective manner.

In addition to evaluating external risks, we also spend time on the evaluation of internal risks. Insiders account for a large share of data breaches through accidental and malicious misuse of data. Intentional or accidental system breaches by company insiders can result in theft of intellectual property and other confidential information, financial fraud and down time. Since insiders do need access to certain areas of the company’s systems, it is imperative that the proper policies, processes and controls are put in place, taking into considerations employees’ privacy.

Our information security specialists will review your current setups and procedures as they relate to system security, such as currently used hardware and software, established policies and procedures, currently deployed security measures, available awareness training sessions, communication hardware and software and physical security. They will also interview some of your employees, managers and business partners, and conduct simulations and tests to verify that your business is not vulnerable to breaches by hackers, ransomware, malware, and theft or loss of data.
