Process Maturity Assessment
The Process Maturity Assessment includes the internal processes, including governance and security planning processes. Governance is the set of responsibilities and practices exercised by the board and executive management with the goal of providing strategic direction, ensuring that objectives are achieved, risks are managed appropriately and verifying that the enterprise’s resources are used responsibly.
Since information is a vital resource for organizations, it is vital that information security activities be integrated into the corporate governance structure.
The five outcomes of developing an effective governance approach to cybersecurity:
• A strategic alignment of security with business strategy and organizational objectives.
• Reduction of risk and potential business impacts to an acceptable level.
• Delivered value on behalf of optimized security investments and organizational objectives.
• Efficient utilization of security investments, which support organizational objectives.
• Performance measurement and monitoring, to ensure that objectives are met.
The Benefits of Security Planning
Security planning helps clarify and maintain the governance of enterprise security mission and vision. An organization should implement and maintain mechanisms that manage information and the use of IT in the enterprise, to support the governance’ objectives.
The purpose of security planning is to facilitate a continuous management approach that meets the business’ governance requirements. This approach should cover management processes, organizational structures, roles and responsibilities, reliable and repeatable activities, and skills and competencies.
As part of the assessment, CyberInt will get acquainted with your business’ current processes and make sure you’re up to speed, by running a gap analysis based on best practices. These support your organization’s initiative to develop the right processes, in-line with your company’s governance.
Technology Maturity Assessment
The assessment is carried out by our CyberOPS team, and includes:
• Building a threat database that targets the organization, categorized by threat levels and their respective severity.
• Providing a list of proposed defense methods.
• Evaluating the existing state of the organization’s technology maturity levels.
• Identifying existing gaps or redundancies in the technologies.
The CyberOPS team produces a report based on their findings, with actionable suggestions for improving the maturity state.
