Cybersecurity Program Assessment

For most modern day companies success is hinged and, in frequent cases, completely dependent on the use of technology. Many companies already have the entirety of their business processes totally ingrained by technology and wouldn't exist otherwise. Equally, the phrase "we are a technology business" has become a description leading to a far greater emphasis on cybersecurity. While the dependence on technology offers significant business success, it has also introduced a compelling level of security challenges. At WWT we understand the importance of cybersecurity to companies and bring our expertise to assist in protecting technology and ultimately the business. WWT’s Security Consultants provide a formal yet flexible method of evaluating enterprise cybersecurity maturity based on foundation building blocks across a variety of industry security frameworks. Utilizing a holistic approach when evaluating an organization’s control and risk mitigation environment, WWT is able to provide a level of detailed analysis that will be used as a roadmap to increase security program maturity and maximize the use of people, processes and technology for the purpose of reducing risk while increasing efficiencies.

Goals & Objectives

WWT provides the expertise who bring in depth knowledge of industry standards along with best practices across a range in industries. The combined expertise is leveraged through our advisory services, professional services and advanced technologies. Our Security Consultants can help define and scope your organization’s cybersecurity posture by providing the following services: 
 
Compliance with Industry Standards 
Get a concise view of cybersecurity compliance with best practice frameworks, standards and regulations including ISO 27001 & 27002, HIPAA, PCI, NIST CSF and 800-53, or Critical Security Controls Top 20 (AKA SANS Top 20).

Technology and Operational Risk Management 
Assess how technology and operational risks are managed and controlled.

Policy Review 
Identify policy gaps and assist in the creation of policies to clearly define actions needed to comply with required regulations.

Security Program Maturity 
Compile and summarize information about the overall maturity level of an information security program using a comprehensive scoring matrix.

Security Control Gaps 
Analyze existing controls and map them to industry best practice controls to identify gaps and provide a roadway to implementation of additional controls to meet objectives.

Risk Exposure 
Evaluate existing risk exposure to the organization, stakeholders and clients.


WORK WITH EXPERTS 

Clients who participate in a WWT Cybersecurity Program Assessment gain a comprehensive understanding of their security program maturity and walk away with prescriptive recommendations to mitigate identified risks or control gaps. WWT will work with organizational stakeholders to assign risk ratings or priorities for assessment findings. These ratings or priorities will formulate a corrective action plan that can be used to set goals and objectives for security program enhancement.

METHODOLOGY 

Grounded in advanced concepts, technologies, solutions and reference architecture, WWT’s methodology can be customized and delivered to meet an organization’s specific cybersecurity needs. 

We have subject matter expertise and offerings that align with each domain (some examples of our offerings are listed above). The cybersecurity methodology, combined with our delivery methodology, allows us to comprehensively evaluate your enterprise by asking simple questions: 

  • Is your environment ready for today’s security threats (governance, risk and compliance)? 
  • Are you aware of today’s threats and are your personnel trained for them? 
  • Can you deploy technology to defend against and detect today’s advanced threats? 
  • If you defend against or detect a threat can you analyze what happened? 
  • Once you defend or detect are you prepared and trained to respond? 

OUTCOMES 

Work directly with WWT to achieve the following: 

  • Evaluate the enterprise security posture and compliance against internationally accepted information security frameworks or regulations.
  • Create a gap analysis of the current environment in accordance with the framework or regulation.
  • Provide a 1 to 5 rating for each control indicating its maturity using the Capability Maturity Model Index (CMMI).
  • Define a roadmap that recommends specific programs, architectures and technologies to achieve best practices and/or prescriptive regulatory compliance guidance.
  • Understand how integrating governance, risk and compliance processes can reduce costs and mitigate or reduce risk.
