Reduce technology related risk with Pre-Risk Vulnerability Assessments from 24Lockdown

Reduce technology related risk with Pre-Risk Vulnerability Assessments from 24 Lockdown

In the current economic climate organisations must make difficult decisions regarding how to develop their businesses whilst also reducing the risk of doing business in an interconnected and online world. This has meant that technology related risks are evolving as quickly as the business models of the companies at the forefront of these changes.

The problem; There are business risks associated with storing and processing corporate and customer data which could cause damage to the reputation of your organisation. Can you rely on the effectiveness of your IT Security controls if the effectiveness of these measures have not been validated and are you in a position to adequately protect and manage against potential threats?

Particularly where new technologies are involved such as Cloud services and “Bring Your Own Device” (BYOD) the real risk to your business may not be apparent to your stakeholders.

Key questions to be asking are “what is our risk appetite?” and “can we safely accept these risks?”

These questions highlight how many companies make decisions regarding risk management without fully understanding their risk profile and actual exposure or what sensitive information they need to protect to what degree.

Is your level of protection adequate for the nature of data that you are protecting? Will improving certain security measures reduce your real exposure? This is where the Pre-Risk vulnerability assessment is designed to provide these answers.  This will arm you with the knowledge to decide whether your controls are adequate, and whether improvements in specific areas will reduce your exposure to acceptable levels.

We can provide tailored security assessments of your IT Security posture prior to you binding the risk. We will provide you with a clear and concise report of cyber exposure based on IT Security Management standards such as ISO27001 ensuring that your business fully understands the potential outcomes if the exposure is not treated. Our industry leading experts are leaders in their field utilising commercial and open source software to provide fully exhaustive security assessments, as well as moving beyond one dimensional testing towards the Data-centric view of IT Security that is required to protect against modern threats such as Cyber Espionage.

Our industry leading experts are the best in their field utilising customised open source software to provide fully exhaustive security assessments. Understanding cyber-crime risk modelling is paramount, let us help you to gain a competitive advantage through improved risk management.

One of our assessors will visit your staff or your client and walk them through filling in the questionnaire the first time. After this you will continue to self assess at a period suggested by our CERT (Cyber Security Emergency Response Team).

At periods agreed between you and the CERT you will be audited and assessed to provide a management level report about the effectiveness of your current solution. The audit will involve spot checks of criteria specified as “required” in the self assessment report.
