Cyber Security Controls Assessment

An effective Cyber Security Program must be rooted in standardized practices meeting the fundamental control requirements of confidentiality, integrity, and availability. The program must also be nimble enough to respond to evolving threats. SQ Risk Cyber Security Controls Assessments follow industry standardized frameworks (e.g. ISO 27001/2, NIST 800-53 / CSF, and PCI-DSS). The assessment evaluates controls and identifies weaknesses in key programmatic areas:

  • Adherence to Control Management Framework(s)
  • Threat Management
  • Vulnerability & Patch Management
  • Monitoring & Incident Response
  • Program Maturity and Maintenance

Information Security Programs cannot be static. Legacy controls may not be as effective in an evolving threat landscape. There is no “silver bullet” — Information Security Programs must be layered, continually monitored, tested, and matured to meet future security challenges.
