Methodology and Frameworks

Working collaboratively with our client, our security assessment report provides a valuable insight to your organization's security posture and risk temperament. The result is a high-level proposed roadmap and recommendations for remediation. We often work with organizations in many industries of many sizes.

Our methodology includes referencing standard control frameworks depending on the organization's industry, requirements, objectives and vision. For example, we commonly reference the following frameworks and regulations:

  • ISO 2700x
  • NIST Special Publication 800-53
  • The NIST Cybersecurity Framework
  • HIPAA / HITECH
  • PCI DSS
  • etc.

However, controls are only part of the equation. We bring you a major advantage via our security team's combined 100 years of IT security and executive business experience. We leverage this experience to understand the full context of our client's scenario from both an IT and business perspective.

Vulnerability Assessment

The output of the technical evaluation includes specific recommendations for quick fixes as well as those which require more strategic planning. On the day the scans are executed, you are provided an informal report of Critical and High vulnerabilities and quick-win action items without waiting until the executive briefing. This provides you with a vulnerability baseline from which to manage right away.

We leverage an array of tools in order to provide a comprehensive technical view of your vulnerabilities. Our vulnerability assessment includes scanning, auditing and/or reviewing all of the following entities. This robust vulnerability assessment is always included as a standard feature of our security assessment.

  • Internal and External Vulnerability Assessment
  • Wireless Security
  • Firewalls and IPS
  • Identity Access Management
  • Active Directory Password Strength
  • Web Application Security
  • SSL and Encryption Strength
