Cyber security assessment FAQs
What is a Cyber Security Assessment?
A Cyber Security Assessment service reviews your organisation’s information and cyber security processes and management. By conducting a security assessment, you will receive a detailed and comprehensive report detailing your compliance level against the NIST Cyber Security Framework and other universally recognised standards such as ISO 27001/27002.
What is NIST cyber security framework?
The NIST Cyber Security Framework is a set of standards and best practices that organisations can use to evaluate and manage their cyber security risk, which map very closely to ISO 27001 including the Annex A controls and NIST 800-53. Published by the US National Institute of Standards and Technology, the framework is used across the globe to help businesses within the private and public sector mitigate cyber security risks.
What is included in the Cyber Security Assessment?
The Cyber Security Assessment is based on the five core areas of the NIST framework:
Within these five controls, there are various best practices and standards that should be implemented to reduce cyber security risk. The Cyber Security Assessment will score your organisation against each requirement using a RAG status for a full security risk assessment.
How long does the Cyber Security Assessment take?
Typically, the Cyber Security Assessment takes 4 days. During this time, our seasoned consultant will arrange a series of interviews with key stakeholders in your business to discuss how your organisation is managing security. They will also request documentation and spend some time reviewing it. Once they have completed the assessment, the report will be prepared and sent to you.
What happens after a Cyber Security Assessment?
The report will provide your organisation with guidance on what needs to be done to improve your security posture. You can take the report and use this to implement the necessary controls identified, or, if you need a helping hand, our same team of friendly consultants can provide hands-on support as on-going consultancy.
