Cybersecurity Assessment (CSA)

Identify security risks and threats before they can seriously harm
your organization.

  • Proactively guard against cyberattacks.

  • The Cybersecurity Assessment (CSA) offers recurring assessments and
    written reports that detail specific findings and provide a security-posture score. We tailor recommendations and options to suit your organization and form a solid defense strategy based on actionable data and industry standards. 

Cybersecurity Assessment is best for:

  • Building icon


    Organizations with fewer than 500 employees who engage online with colleagues and customers as a regular part of their day-to-day operations

  • Hackers


    Companies that are training staff to detect and prevent cybercrime

  • Secure Wireless


    Organizations focused on protecting their networks from emerging threats and known dangers on the internet

    What is it?

    The CSA is a set of recurring assessment activities designed to measure the effectiveness of cyber-risk controls and practices in your organization. Conducted in accordance with recommendations from various industry-standard frameworks, CSA provides you with an overall picture of your cyber-risk posture.
