Robert Mueller, former Director of the FBI, is quoted as saying, “There are now only two types of companies left in the United States: those that have been hacked and those that don’t know they’ve been hacked.”
IT Security has never been more important than it is today, but the problem for IT managers is that it has never been more confusing and daunting. Protecting your organization from breaches and ransomware, and ensuring compliance with a growing list of regulations (SOX, HIPAA, PCI, GDPR, etc.) can seem like an endless and impossible task. It ranks #1 on the list of issues that keep IT Managers up at night.
Managing Cyber Security on your own comes with a whole suite of issues. How can you make sure your staff is up-to-date in the knowledge and skills required for such an undertaking? If you are able to keep your staff up-to-date and trained, how do you make sure they’re paid adequately and protected from poaching by other IT managers in your position? Any security staff worth their salt probably get at least one recruiting call a day. Finally, how can any one department keep compliant with all of the new regulations that keep cropping up every year?
Our approach to this problem has two parts. The first step is to fully assess the scope of your cyber risk – Gain Visibility, because you can’t solve the problem if you don’t know where to start. Our approach is unique in the industry – not just a technical evaluation of your network and computing infrastructure, but a fully strategic assessment of your security posture. A strategic view includes your technical exposure, but it also includes an assessment of your policies and procedures, your employee’s level of awareness, and your exposure to applicable regulation and legal risk.
Once you have assessed your Cyber Security risks through our process, you will have a list of actionable items to improve your security posture, to Build Resistance. Opticom can work with you to prioritize the list based on risk and to design and implement solutions that improve your security posture without breaking the bank. In addition, our assessment tool tracks progress and reports your improving score to management, directors and auditors.
