Cyber Security Posture Assessment

Cyber-security posture assessment refers to a methodology that transforms and enhances an organization’s risk management capabilities. By performing cyber-security posture assessment, a client organization will have a clear view of the security status and possible security threats within the organization can be identified.

Why do you need Cyber-Security Posture Assessment?  A majority of organizations are highly dependent on the Internet and networks to run their daily business. However, an organization is unaware of the security issues that might result in an attack (from outside or from within). Customer information, the organization’s private and confidential data, intellectual property, and information assets might leak out to the public––thereby resulting in huge financial losses and damage to the organization’s reputation. In order to measure the overall cyber-security maturity of the organization, an independent expert assessment of the current state of its information security environment is conducted against global standards and leading industry practices. It is followed by a remediation of the identified gaps and the development of a roadmap for transformation.

Security Strategy and Transformation

Security strategy and transformation refers to the establishment of a security strategy based on the client’s business strategy,
which ensures that the information systems within the client organization are safe and secure from any intrusion that would
cause damages to the organization. Security strategy and transformation will be built to meet the client organization’s cyber-security vision

Why do you need Security Strategy and Transformation?

Security strategies involve both cyber security and information security merged with organizational controls.
Cyber-security strategy is always aligned with business strategy not only to maximize the revenue,
but also protect the organization’s assets as well as its reputation.

Employees may bring their own device (such as a smartphone, tablet, or laptop) to the workplace and connect to the Internet.
New complicated threats and attackers emerge every day. With security strategy and transformation, your organization’s
software assets and intellectual property will be protected alongside your reputation.

Vendor Risk Management

Our Approach:

A majority of organizations are highly dependent on third-party vendors for services in order to save costs and raise the quality of service. By relying on a third-party vendor, it also means that confidential data and information about an organization will be handled by a third party, which could lead to serious consequences. In current organizations, various vendors are engaged to provide a variety of services; hence, it is imperative to have a sustainable and scalable vendor management framework that ensures best-in-class vendor management processes and vendor performance across various vendor services. Implementing a sustainable and scalable vendor management program ensures that all vendor-related risks are mitigated and vendor management processes are well defined as per industry-leading practices.

Putting a robust vendor management process in place will allow organizations to achieve the following benefits:

  • Established robust vendor management processes to ensure effective services from the vendors and mitigate risks related to vendor services, vendor availability, contractual breach, and service quality.
  • Clearly defined roles and responsibilities among vendor management stakeholders, which leads to effective decision-making.
  • Well-defined SLA and performance-monitoring mechanisms to ensure compliance to agreed contractual terms.
  • A well-defined risk management process to ensure proper risk profiling of the vendor and implementation of required risk mitigation.
  • Adherence to audit and compliance requirements by following all defined processes as per the vendor management framework.
