Protect Your Business With A Security Standards Assessment
If you have anti-virus software, spam filtering, and a couple of other security measures in place – may be firewalls and some encryption – you’re still not safe. If your cybersecurity strategy doesn’t go above and beyond setting a few tools in place and forgetting it, you’re almost certainly vulnerable to:
- Phishing attacks
- Drive-by downloads
- Brute force attacks
- And much, much more
Security Standards Assessments
We never like to be the bearer of bad news, but in this industry, it’s kind of our job. But here’s the thing… You’re not alone in thinking implementing some tools is enough. We work with TONS of organizations that came to us with some fantastic tools in place and thought they were safe – only to discover a ton of vulnerabilities left open and waiting for exploitation.
A Few Security Tools Aren’t Enough, So What Is?
Even if you have the best tools installed, all it takes is one determined hacker or a disgruntled employee… A cyberattack impacts your organization in a huge way, especially if you’re supposed to adhere to specific regulations or laws relating to data privacy. You may end up facing:
- Loss of customer trust
- Reputational damage
- Loss of productivity time
- Legal liabilities
- Hefty fines
- And much, much more
So if a few tools aren’t enough, what is? Well, it’s important to remember that the right technology is only part of the equation. Cybersecurity is never a set-it-and-forget-it type of situation. Instead, you need a multi-layered approach that includes security standards assessments performed on a regular basis.
What Is A Security Standards Assessment?
A security standards assessment involves third-party testing of your organization’s security tools, processes, and procedures to look for vulnerabilities and/or backdoors. When we perform a security standards assessment, our team will:
- Check for any sort of vulnerabilities and/or backdoors within your systems and applications.
- Review your policies and procedures to make sure your people understand how to stay safe.
- Look for sensitive data stored in any locations it’s not supposed to be stored in, as well as any user permissions that shouldn’t be given.
- Test your security tools using the same techniques and tactics cybercriminals do to ensure they’re able to hold up.
- Provide recommendations for improvements with a complete report showing all areas of vulnerability and/or risk levels.
This gives you peace of mind knowing you’re prepared for any sort of threats that come your way. If you’re ready to stop worrying about cybercrime, let’s talk…
