Why Does Cybersecurity Risk Assessment Matter?

Think a business-crippling security breach is unlikely to happen to you? Think again. The reality is that it’s not a matter of if. It’s a matter of when:

  • There is a ransomware attack every 14 seconds
  • 1/2 of all cybersecurity attacks are targeted at small businesses
  • 60 percent of small companies go out of business within six months of a cyber attack

Your business can be targeted by cybercriminals anywhere in the world, 24/7/365. Just one weakness in your systems can be exploited by complex, evolving attacks like SQL injections, phishing, and malware. The results can be costly, extensive downtime, customer and employee data used for malicious purposes, compliance violations, and an irreparably damaged reputation.

New Jersey & Philadelphia Cybersecurity Risk Consultants You Can Trust

We provide strategic, best-in-class cybersecurity services at small business prices. Using the nationally recognized NIST framework (National Institute of Standards and Technology), we scrutinize your IT environments, policies, and procedures to evaluate your risks and provide the most effective, tailored solutions to eliminate threats at all levels of your organization. After nearly three decades of protecting businesses, our record speaks for itself.

Cybersecurity Risk Assessment Services

Identifying Critical Information Assets

The first step involves identifying critical information assets by performing a comprehensive service and hardware inventory. We’ll also perform a network traffic monitoring session to reveal the most frequently used network and system components.

Determining the Likelihood and Impact of a Cyberattack Incident

We can determine the likelihood of a cyberattack through an incident simulation exercise. We’ll also assess the impact of a security breach on your organization's financial, reputation, and legal repercussions.

Evaluating the Gaps in Your Security Controls

After identifying assets and prioritizing risks, the next step involves reviewing foundational elements to prepare the organization for technical safeguarding and program enhancement. Tasks may include setting cybersecurity policies and basic cybersecurity training for employees.

Uncovering Vulnerabilities and Exposure to Potential Attacks

After identifying information assets, our team will conduct an exhaustive assessment to determine which vulnerabilities might affect your systems. We’ll look at network vulnerabilities, operating system vulnerabilities, human vulnerabilities, process vulnerabilities, etc.

Designing Response Plans Against Future Threats

Once all foundational security and compliance elements have been addressed, we recommend that organizations dive deeper into their technical infrastructure to reduce future threats and risks. This includes simulating attacks, establishing incident responses, and managing security assessments.

NIST Cybersecurity Framework Assessment

Let our cybersecurity experts design a simulated attack on your business, and then create a strategic plan to identify, protect, detect, respond, and recover from the incident. Through this exercise, we will create a roadmap for establishing an enhanced cybersecurity program for your business.

Identify

Comprehensive assessments of your assets, risks, business environment, policies, and compliance requirements help yield a detailed strategy to implement best practices and appropriate solutions. When we better understand the resources that support critical functions, it’s easier to focus and prioritize efforts consistent with risk management strategies.

Protect

Multi-layered security ensures that your data is never at risk, including access control, user training, proactive maintenance, and optimized information handling procedures. It’s critical to develop and implement safeguards to limit or contain potential cybersecurity attacks. Focusing on protection processes and technology, we can implement the appropriate precautions.

Detect

Smart threat detection systems include 24/7 monitoring and the latest threat intelligence to identify and remediate anomalies, events, and evolving threats. This function allows us to discover potential cybersecurity events. We accomplish this through security monitoring, implementing detection processes, and setting up triggers and alarms for possible anomalies in the organization’s cybersecurity processes.

Respond

Our immediate response includes communication and proactive threat eradication to eliminate downtime, protect your assets, and keep everyone on the same page. At this stage, our team will implement all the containing strategies to mitigate the impact of a potential cybersecurity attack. From setting up communications and mitigation procedures to developing response planning strategies and focusing on further improvements.

Recover

Complete planning ensures all impacted systems will quickly return to normal and detailed reports will be analyzed for more innovative cybersecurity. The recovery phase is all about setting the systems back to normal operations to reduce further impact of the incident. This stage is about improvements, communications, and executing the previously created recovery planning strategy.

Types of Risk Assessments

Get actionable steps to mitigate threats and mature your cybersecurity posture. Our five rigorous assessments provide valuable insights into the security risks of your policies, procedures, IT infrastructure, and users. After our presentation and report containing actionable recommendations, we’ll create the most informed, holistic security solution that keeps your organization impenetrable and compliant.

Organizational Risk Assessment

Guided by the NIST framework, our cybersecurity experts will identify vulnerabilities in the controls and processes of your company to assess the hazards that could negatively impact an organization’s ability to conduct business.

Network Assessment

A complete in-depth analysis of your organization’s current IT infrastructure provides you with a comprehensive understanding of your current environment. Our cybersecurity experts will recommend improvements from automation to network consolidation and network simplification.

User Vulnerability Assessment

This systematic review of security weaknesses in information systems gives your organization a detailed view of your vulnerability areas. The vulnerability assessments evaluate if current systems are susceptible to known vulnerabilities and recommend remediation or mitigation.

Dark Web Scan

The dark web scan analysis searches the Dark Web to locate personal data and organizational information. If any information is found, our cybersecurity experts will recommend the appropriate steps to help mitigate any potential damage or incidents.

Physical Security Assessment

Our team will evaluate existing or planned security measures to protect assets from cybersecurity threats during a physical security assessment. When deemed necessary, we’ll identify improvements and create a roadmap to start protecting your organization.
