Cyber Security Risk Assessments
A Cyber Security Risk Assessment is the First Step in Understanding your Security Stance
Cyber security risk assessments are an essential part of understanding your security posture and having access to the information that will drive success. However, as part of your cyber security risk management process, a risk assessment is not something you can just set and forget. With the ever-evolving threat landscape and changes in technology and IT risk management, a periodic risk assessment is something that needs to be done at least annually.
At PKM, we not only assist companies in determining the cyber security risk management framework that makes the most sense for them, but also help them to complete the risk assessment. We then report on any gaps identified during the process and provide formal, easy-to-understand recommendations for remediating those gaps.
IT Risk Management Frameworks Tailored to Meet Your Needs
The Federal Financial Institution Examination Council (FFIEC) Cybersecurity Assessment Toolkit (CAT) is a great way for any company to tackle their cyber security risk management by identifying inherent risks, assessing those risks and determining the maturity of their controls. The National Institution for Standards and Technology (NIST) also has a cyber security risk assessment framework that we often follow and recommend to our clients.
Our IT risk management group is made up of Certified Ethical Hackers, Certified Information Systems Auditors and Certified Information Systems Security Professionals – some of the highest professional designations in the field. And, because we are not married to one specific framework, technology or tool, we are able to help you navigate the cyber security risk management landscape and come up with a solution that truly fits the unique needs of your business.
