Cyber Risk Analysis
Cyber risk analysis will help you make informed decisions about cybersecurity and improve the way you protect critical business functions from breaches and cyberattacks. A cyber risk analysis will provide quantifiable evidence to measure, manage and optimize IT security effectiveness. DIGIGUARD can help reduce the cost of protection by revealing coverage redundancy and technology duplication. Our team of experts can help you reduce risk by verifying that all software is updated and patched, and protection system dependencies are accounted for. We can help your business be more agile with cybersecurity by verifying that your team is adhering to safety policy and best practices. We will look at the state of:
- Network security
- Website and domain health
- Updating and patching
- Endpoint security
Our team will begin each assessment by gathering a list of every endpoint. This list will include all devices that connect to the internet, including workstations, mobile devices, printers, industrial controls, servers, phones and more. We then look at data types and critical business functions. We need to understand who has access to data, how it is sent and received, and where and how it is stored. We also look at third-party relationships that may have access to your systems, such as suppliers and vendors. This inventory overview will allow our consultants to address the risk factors associated with each endpoint and safely balance the workflow against risk reduction.
Areas of Vulnerability
DIGIGUARD will identify weak areas and the areas at greatest risk for attack. Vulnerability analysis can help guide decision-making and budgeting for cybersecurity initiatives. Our experts are aware of the latest cyber threats and which ones are most likely to cripple your critical business functions. Vulnerabilities can expose your business to data loss, unauthorized access to the network, service disruptions and loss of vendor relationships due to inadequate cybersecurity. Our team can conduct a thorough analysis by utilizing:
- Network penetration testing
- Wireless penetration testing
- Social engineering risk assessments
We will help you examine the impact and risk of any vulnerabilities so that you can prioritize remediation. We will help you look at acceptable risk and rank potential harm to your business. We will present a comprehensive list of financial and reputational losses that could occur, such as production line interruptions, fines and regulatory penalties, loss of reputation, loss of customers, legal fees and more. This process lends surprising clarity to decision-making and will help you determine which items should be addressed immediately, and which items can be safely ignored. DIGIGUARD consultants can recommend changes to the way you store and transmit data, the amount and type of information you collect, and how your team interacts with data.
Security Policy and Protocol
Developing a strong cybersecurity policy, and regularly updating and testing it, is an essential component of cybersecurity. Placing strong controls in place to manage data and internet security will reduce your risk of breaches and cyberattacks. Robust, tested protocols help your business stay compliant with data regulation such as protecting sensitive and private data for customers, employees and partners. We will help you tailor policies designed to protect networks, devices and data. Our expert team will make recommendations on the following practices:
- Password and authentication protocol
- Installing protection tools and software
- Data access controls
- Firewall configuration
- Network segregation
Test and Evaluate
DIGIGUARD will analyze your system for cyber risk and make recommendations for remediating and reducing risk. Once the changes are in place we will evaluate and test the effectiveness of new protection, protocols and policies. Small and mid-sized businesses are targeted in 43 percent of all cyber attacks. Any change to your business — from adding new employees or processes to adding new equipment, software or partners — can create a gap in protection. To protect your business from vulnerability, experts recommend an annual cyber risk analysis to address emerging cyber threats and the risk associated with changes to your business.
