Cyber Security Program Development
We help accelerate development and maturity of your information security program
Cyber security is a business imperative. In order for your business to remain profitable, you need to be aware of specific cyber security threats and regulatory requirements, and ensure that these are effectively addressed. In developing a business-focused cyber security program, we begin by carefully analyzing your business model, requirements and risk appetite. The output of this analysis is determination of your potential cyber security threats and specification of corresponding countermeasures.
Our main objective here is to help accelerate development and/or maturity of your organization’s cyber security program. Our experienced cyber security consultants will work with you to understand your business model, requirements, and realities before recommending security capabilities that will enable realization of business objectives. Our staff have several years of experience designing and implementing effective cyber security programs based on best-in-class cyber security frameworks such as ISO27001, ISF Standard of Good Practice, SANS Critical Security Controls, PCI DSS, NIST Cybersecurity Framework, and so forth. At the end of this engagement, you will have a clear view of your cyber security value map, the current and target states of your security capabilities, and the evolutionary steps required to get to the target state.
Roadmap and Strategy
A security strategy proactively answers questions relating to why a cyber security program or department exists within an organization. It clarifies the objectives of the cyber security team in relation to corporate goals. The roadmap shows the evolutionary paths towards realization of strategic objectives for cyber security.
A metrics framework provides mechanism by which the effectiveness of a cyber security program is measured. Its overall goal is to provide assurance that existing cyber security controls are adequately reducing the likelihood of a security breach whilst increasing the odds of detecting an ongoing breach.
