Client Outcomes

Once we confirm the makeup of your security ecosystem, we begin the process of proactively addressing your points of potential vulnerability through the following steps:

  1. Establish the Baseline

    Our experts engage with your internal security team to collaboratively perform security and risk assessments, as well as evaluate and baseline your environment. From phishing simulations that determine the awareness levels of your people, to test hacking events, we gain a clear picture of the points of vulnerability within your IT infrastructure.

    Starting with these three questions:

    • Do you know what “normal” is in your environment from the standpoint of activity and access?
    • Do you have control of your privileged access points? For example, the breach of an employee’s “personal” ID is not as bad as a breach involving a core system administrator’s ID.
    • Do you know what’s connected, and more specifically do you know what’s running on your network?
  2. Understand Objectives

    Not all information is equal, which is why you must protect yourself against the “who” not just the “what”. By engaging with leadership, we categorize what data would be of interest to whom. Through proactive characterization, we can identify and prioritize acceptable risk levels for your organization’s information and critical infrastructure.

  3. Create the Plan

    Creating a secure environment is not a one-time event but a continuous process of recognition and adaptation. Our highly trained experts are specialists in creating roadmaps to help you identify and effectively respond to changing conditions – ensuring the ongoing integrity of your security ecosystem.

  4. Implement and Maintain the Program

    For organizations with limited security needs, implementation can be a one and done scenario. For others, where the security needs are more sophisticated and ongoing, regular maintenance is integral to a well functioning digital defense program. Our architects work with your team to determine the appropriate cadence for your business.
