When it comes to data breach prevention, what you don’t know can hurt you. Your company faces IT risk daily—whether you’re fending off internal threats or enhancing protection against external intrusions.
How well are you balancing your need to lock down data with tighter security controls, while providing your team with easy access to the information that drives your success? You can never be sure of your security stance unless you’re conducting periodic security assessments.
Cyber Risk Assessments - What's Included?
Our Cybersecurity Risk Assessments include a detailed review of the information security program—from policies and procedures to technical controls, including people, processes and technologies. We conduct a series of interviews with internal stakeholders, across both technical and business teams, to identify areas for improvement to mature the organization's information security program, using the NIST Cybersecurity framework as guidance.
The objective is to review the maturity of an organization’s information security program, with an emphasis on its ability to defend against and respond to modern cybersecurity threats affecting its information assets and mitigate the risk of suffering a security breach.
At the conclusion of an assessment, clients will receive a summary report designed to communicate security posture to senior management, including an assessment of the organization’s maturity level and an outline of critical risks identified. Additionally, a technical details report will be provided, with relevant and actionable recommendations prioritized by likelihood, impact and overall risk so the organization knows what to remediate first.
At Kroll, we apply years of data breach prevention expertise to our cyber risk assessments. Our experts are Certified Information Systems Auditors, Certified Information Security Managers, Certified Information Systems Security Professionals and Certified Ethical Hackers. They are ex-FBI agents, CTOs, CISOs, IT and security directors, cyber investigators, infrastructure managers, forensic computer scientists and networking professionals—people who speak the same language as your internal IT staff and who can perform the in-depth analysis your busy teams don’t have the time or resources to conduct.
