Are you unsure of how secure your business’ IT infrastructure is? The network that connects your business’ computers deals with a lot of sensitive and valuable information – this makes it a prime target for cybercriminals.

You can’t afford to assume that your cyber security measures and practices are keeping you safe. You need to understand the risks you face, and how to mitigate them.

It’s What You Don’t Know That Puts You In Danger

The gulf between what you know and what you don’t is where cybercriminals operate. That’s why risk assessment processes are so crucial. They help you better understand where your most severe cybersecurity issues are.

Consider the facts — whereas nearly 80% of IT security leaders believe their organizations are not secure enough, only 57% have invested in cybersecurity risk assessments. Don’t make the same mistake.

Unfortunately, a key barrier at play is how complicated the process is. A security risk analysis can be a daunting task and if not conducted by an information security professional, then your organization can still be exposed to cyber security risks. And how do you know what to do after the assessment?

This is why you need expert guidance…

Answering Your Risk Assessment FAQs

How Will A Security Risk Assessment Improve Your Bottom Line?

Ransomware, malware, or a data breach can cost tens of thousands of dollars and weeks of staff time for data recovery and reproduction. Not to mention fines if your firm is found in violation of any regulatory requirements. A third party assessment proves you are taking responsible steps towards information security.

What Is Our Cybersecurity Risk Assessment Process?

Our Cybersecurity Risk Assessment provides letter grades and data details behind twenty risk categories. Executives get an easy-to-understand report with letter-grade scores and IT security teams can drill down to the technical details behind each risk category. The risks/vulnerabilities are prioritized by severity so that security engineer can quickly identify and mitigate them. The grading is based on industry standards and best practices. The overall grade indicates how easy it is to hack an organization and individual category grades indicate how easy it is to leverage the security weaknesses of the category or the potential impact on an organization’s cyber reputation.

Our reports provide a financial “value at risk” figure based on exposure to third parties, a compliance completion score based on industry standards (NIST, HIPAA, GDPR, etc.), and a ransomware susceptibility score. These additional features are not found in other service offerings, and come included with the base report. The financial risk figure, based on the FAIR (Factor Analysis for Information Risk) methodology will provide a range of costs an organization can expect to mitigate and recover from a potential breach. Our Cybersecurity Risk Assessment includes comprehensive recommendations and strategy report to help implement an effective cybersecurity framework.
