In a world where bad actors across the globe, and right next door, are constantly looking to exploit your organization’s security weaknesses and vulnerabilities for their financial gain, it has never been more important for organizations to understand both their threat landscape and security posture. These threat actors have no regard or concern for the wellbeing or detrimental results of their actions upon your organization and its stakeholders. Businesses need to proactively prepare for and defend against the attacks of bad actors.
To assist organizations in assessing, understanding and managing their threat landscape and security posture, American Cyber Security Management offers a InfoSec Risk Assessment & Management offering. Our InfoSec Risk Assessment & Management offering is based upon a formal, structured, tailorable and scalable methodology for assessing, building and evolving an organization’s Security and Risk Management capabilities, all while leveraging a risk framework and ACSM’s highly experienced Risk Management, Privacy, Compliance and Security team members and best practices.
InfoSec Risk Assessments are performed to fully understand both the threat landscape and security and risk posture of an organization in terms of protection of the organization’s people, data, processes and technologies (both infrastructure and applications) and also ensure that regulatory privacy and compliance requirements are being met.
Our assessments are performed using a structured, teaming and collaborative approach involving all stakeholders of an organization’s threat, security and risk landscape, and can include optional automated scanning and penetration testing, social engineering exercises, and business impact assessments, utilizing ISACA’s CRISC framework and an agreed upon security standard (NIST, CIS, ISO, etc.)
The outcome of the assessment is a Risk Register (with risk scoring and prioritization) and an approved Prioritized Portfolio of Improvement Initiatives (with business case justification) that when implemented, will strengthen the organization’s Security and Risk Management posture and reduce the organization’s overall risk score through the mitigation of identified risks.
Key Outcomes of ACSM’s InfoSec Risk Assessment:
- Full and complete understanding of an organization’s threat landscape, security posture, risk register and vulnerabilities to be remediated;
- Approved Business Case and Roadmap for implementing remediations, improvements and evolving the organization’s Security and Risk Management capabilities going forward;
- Identified go-forward Security and Risk Management Leadership and Advisory services as required by your organization.
