Cybersecurity Consulting

Nearly every aspect of life is connected to the digital landscape. This means your business can face a host of security risks, liabilities, and challenges. To guard against sophisticated cyberthreats, you should be thinking about a comprehensive security plan to protect your network and data and mitigate exposure to a potential breach.

An effective cybersecurity program starts with a framework that includes a strong governance model, comprehensive policies and procedures, and a commitment to adhere to industry best practices and standards. It includes regular penetration testing to identify and evaluate gaps in network security, and a plan to make the digital environment more predictive and secure.

Every organization must determine what cybersecurity processes are right for its business. In some industries, the processes that an organization must implement are guided by industry requirements, federal regulations or both. Our team understands how compliance with NIST CSF/800 Series, CIS, ISO, PCI-DSS, COBIT, SOC 1, SOC 2, SOC 3, NYDFS Part 200/Part 500, Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Health Information Trust Alliance (HITRUST) certification, Service Organization Control 2 (SOC 2) audits, and other evaluations against established frameworks and standards are critical to an organization’s success.

We treat cybersecurity with an integrated approach to protect against the full spectrum of cyber and physical security issues. These innovative capabilities are specifically designed to improve cyber defense capabilities and prevent or remediate cyber security incidents when they occur.

The success of security policies and systems depends, in part, on their proper implementation and use. A continuous improvement process is needed to sustain a security program on a day-to-day basis.

Our information program assessments and maturation services lend an objective, expert eye to current and future system needs. We will help evaluate and implement all the facets of an efficient and optimized information security plan that is tailored and designed to grow as business needs change.

Our services include: 

  • Comprehensive guidance to help craft the right processes and controls for information security management system
  • Assistance with the creation or modernization of information security policies
  • System updates and patch management analysis and implementation strategies
  • Insight into the necessity and priority-order of potential upgrades, updates, and maintenance
  • A gap analysis to help identify and measure risk exposure with metrics management

There are more security governance measures influencing businesses than ever before. Without proper management and oversight, it’s easy to overlook an aspect of the governance framework. Daily operations may carry on as if the proper systems are in place to manage compliance only to find out something has failed during a compliance audit.

Our cybersecurity governance remediation services provide peace of mind. We’ve built our process around existing and evolving regulatory requirements and procedural requirements. We can set up the most cost-effective and efficient systems and procedures for maintaining compliance and tailor them to suit the realities of any business.

The risks associated with regulatory violations, security breaches and data leaks are very real, and it is essential to understand the systems and standards external technology providers operate within to control and mitigate exposure. Your third-party IT and software developers need to operate within standards that meet regulatory guidelines. If you are outsourcing even a fraction of your application services, managing several independent developers and service providers can seem like an impossible task.

We can evaluate business partners, vendors, and anyone else with whom sensitive data is shared to ensure they meet industry and security application standards. Additionally, we can assist with overseeing design and control measures to ensure that new and continuing providers meet security requirements.

Our services include: 

  • Third-party review to ensure software code meets industry and compliance requirements
  • Evaluation of third-party developers, manufacturers, and integrators to ensure they follow secure software coding principles and regulatory guidelines
  • Objective analysis and testing of application code for potential bugs, holes, and weak points
  • Manual penetration testing for software, systems, and code
  • Insight on the most cost-effective solutions for ensuring external providers meet or exceed internal standards and industry regulations

Operations and system management activities collectively make up the operational security design. From data loss prevention and email spam protection to denial of service and data breach or leakage, there’s an infinite number of challenges to address on an ongoing basis.

We offer a production-oriented, third-party perspective to objectively evaluate current systems and processes. Using our holistic methodology and comprehensive approach, we can help assess vulnerabilities and suggest realistic need-based solutions.

Our services include:

  • Threat prevention tactics and recommendations
  • Solutions to help protect against credible threats and fill risk gaps
  • Suggestions for improving cyber security incident management

Once a data breach or system compromise has been contained, the critical mission becomes remediating the damage, improving technical security and updating policies and procedures to minimize the risk of recurrence. The comprehensive services we offer make us uniquely qualified to assist in the transition from short term reaction and response to long term security — strengthening human and digital operations.
