IT SECURITY RISK ASSESSMENT

IT SECURITY RISK ASSESSMENT

Your business is only as secure as its weakest link. Since that weak link can be found anywhere inside or outside your network, it is essential to take a strategic approach to hardening your defenses. Our certified security specialists can perform a comprehensive security assessment to uncover your weaknesses and devise a custom solution to eliminate them.

How is our Axxys assessment different? We review both the short- and long-term security implications on your business with an IT Risk Assessment and a Vulnerability Assessment.

Our IT risk assessment evaluates the impact of risk on the overall future success of your business while the vulnerability assessment is a current check of your system at a specific period of time.

WE START WITH AN IT RISK ASSESSMENT

STEP ONE: OUTLINE

Based on your business, regulatory, and compliance requirements, we will outline a formal approach to assess your data, hardware and software resources, network infrastructure, employees, third-party partners, and all other assets. While customized to your specific requirements, we will leverage the deep expertise of our certified security specialists and NIST Cybersecurity Framework, CIS, ISC2, ISACA, and EC-Council best practice guidelines to design the exact security assessment for your needs.

STEP TWO: IDENTIFY

Axxys will investigate all potential risks which could impact your network infrastructure, employees, and data. This includes assessing individual assets, threats, and vulnerabilities and identifying how your business critical data is created, transmitted, and stored.

STEP THREE: EXAMINE

Once all risks have been identified, we examine each vulnerability, determine how it could be exploited, and the impact it would have on your business from a human, financial, legal, and operational perspective.

STEP FOUR: ASSESS

We will assess the risks identified in step 3 and assign a specific risk level to each based on your company’s risk tolerance. This risk scale will enable us to build a strategic mitigation plan by prioritizing the risks which must be eliminated immediately and those which are less of an urgent threat.

STEP FIVE: TREAT AND PREVENT

After evaluating your assets and infrastructure, and identifying and prioritizing potential threats, our skilled security specialists will deploy IT resources to prevent breaches, design specific processes to ensure the use of best practices and ongoing compliance, and educate your team on identifying sophisticated threats before they can cause significant harm.
