Security Risk Assessment Services

As companies connect to the internet, they not only enjoy the benefits of internet connectivity, but if not managed properly, this connection can disclose internal information to the outside world. Having this information fall into the wrong hands poses a significant risk to the companies.

In order to understand the Cyber/IT security posture of a company, the accepted best practice - and surest way is to conduct a security risk assessment. A security risk assessment consists of a vulnerability assessment and assessing risks posed by weak, incomplete, or absent policy, procedures, personnel, technology, and strategy related to IT Security.

Many regulations require a security risk assessment as the first step in building an effective and compliant security program.  Among these are ISO/IEC 27001, governing information security management systems, the HIPAA Security Rule, and the new ONC and CMS Rules, known officially as the 21st Century Cures Act: Interoperability, Information Blocking, and ONC Health IT Certification Program, and the CMS Interoperability and Patient Access rule.

 At a minimum, an external security risk assessment consists of looking in from outside into the company’s network. This is done by scanning (like a hacker would) all the IP Addresses that the company owns to ascertain security vulnerabilities that any hacker can exploit. Similarly, internal vulnerability assessment enables the organization to understand the security posture of their internal laptops, desktops, servers, and all other devices. The vulnerabilities could be due to misconfiguration, outdated patches, or unsupported software and hardware.

Along with conducting a vulnerability assessment, a security risk assessment consists of identifying the assets (laptops, desktops, servers, network, and other security devices) of the company, risks associated with the assets, what mechanisms the company has implemented to manage the risks, how are those mechanisms documented and managed (by personnel). This risk assessment gives the company and its executives a picture of the overall risks.

The Challenges of Do-It-Yourself Security

Internet connectivity comes at a price.  Companies expose intellectual property and data not only to customers and third-party partners but also to internal employees.  Businesses are exposed to inadvertent or event malicious data leakage. A company's information in the wrong hands poses a significant risk - a risk that no business needs.

  • We need to know that we are safe from outside threats as well as insider threats.
  • We need to know that our intellectual property, payroll and personnel data, financial information, and strategic plans are secure.
  • We need to demonstrate compliance with best security practices, financial and healthcare regulations, and other requirements.
We have a five-pronged approach for conducting a thorough and comprehensive security risk assessment. This approach comprises People, Communication, Process, PII/ PHI, and Tools. It is a 360-degree view on measuring the state of security for your enterprise.
