Breaches in Large Enterprises Highlight Need for Improved Cybersecurity Programs

Advanced threats continue to evolve, along with growing motivation, improving weaponry, and increasing persistence through funding. At the same time, emerging technologies, such as social, mobile, cloud, and the Internet of Things, present new risks and expand attack surfaces. Even the board of directors is taking notice and driving maturity in the management of cybersecurity risk throughout the organization.

In response, enterprises cybersecurity programs are maturing beyond traditional control and compliance based programs to continually monitor and understand threats, assets, vulnerabilities, and risks in order to dynamically refocus cybersecurity priorities and efforts on an ongoing basis.

An independent, vendor neutral assessment of the current cybersecurity program, based on industry standard and leading security practices can identify existing program weaknesses and risks, and serve as the foundation for building an actionable, measureable, milestone-based plan for mitigating unacceptable risks and enhancing the cybersecurity program.

Cyber Security Risk Assessment

OpenSky utilizes the globally recognized National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework as the foundation for our Cybersecurity Risk Assessment. Our service covers the five key functions of the NIST Framework (Identify, Detect, Protect, Respond, Recover) and provides an evaluation of the cybersecurity program’s current state.

In addition, we conduct in-depth interviews and analysis in areas beyond the NIST Framework, to gain a thorough understanding of executive alignment, the organization’s risk tolerance and cybersecurity goals.

Our approach gives our clients a comprehensive understanding of the position of their cybersecurity program relative to standard and leading practices. Our prioritized, practical recommendations consider the required level of effort and are designed to match an organization’s specific risk profile and program objectives.  The final result is an action plan and roadmap to enhance the cybersecurity program in order to appropriately manage risk according to business goals.
