How a Cybersecurity Risk Assessment Works

Start Your Assessment

Your goals for a cybersecurity assessment can be wide-ranging and depend on your business’s specific needs. A security assessment should establish an estimate of your current program’s security and determine priority areas for remediation.

Our assessment starts with a full review of the people, processes, and technology around your current data protection. We use a variety of strategies, including evaluating overall security hygiene, reducing attack surface area, and aligning your security with business objectives. We will interview stakeholders and review your policy suite related to the governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) environment. Our specialists will scan your external attack surface and complete technical reviews of your cloud environment(s) and open-source intelligence (OSINT) systems.

  • Part of any assessment is a remediation plan for any identified gaps.
  • A high-level roadmap that helps your team prioritize their efforts.
  • A security goal aimed at your specific industry, business, and regulatory needs.

Penetration Testing

A penetration test, or pen test, is a test to see if/where your infrastructure can be penetrated and exploited. As a team of white hat hackers, we try to breach your system like a hacker would to find any gaps or vulnerabilities that may exist in operating systems, services, and application flaws, improper configurations, or risky end-user behavior. This assessment is also useful to validate the efficacy of defensive mechanics as well as end-user adherence to security policies.
