Security Program

Know where
the gaps are.

Discover your security gaps, program maturity and ways to reduce risk.

Evaluate your security program against commonly used industry security standards.

In a quickly evolving digital marketplace, organizations rely heavily on their information, systems and networks to support customers and employees. Your information security programs are intended to ensure that you are protected from cyber threats, but it can be difficult to know if they have remained relevant in a time of rapid change.

The Security Program Assessment is designed to provide you with an objective, standards-based analysis of the programs and practices that protect the confidentiality, integrity and availability of your information and environments. You get a clear understanding of your program maturity, the gaps that could be exploited, and a prioritized set of recommendations to reduce the risk of compromise.

What is Security Program Assessment?

Security Program Assessment objectively evaluates your security program against your preferred industry security standard by looking at the three dimensions of security control effectiveness: maturity of the solution, performance of the solution to the controls expectation, and scope of application of the solution.

How does  Security Program Assessment work?

Each assessment starts by reviewing documentation, interviewing key personnel and collecting program information. We then analyze your program’s maturity, performance, and scope relative to your requirements. The report of our findings includes recommendations to help you close security program gaps and reduce security risks.
