Cyber Gap Assessment

Your View on Your Security Posture

Our CISO-as-a-Service missions usually start with the definition of a cyber strategy, a concrete plan to work on security priorities. To this end, we operate in four steps:

  • Step 1 - Identify control gaps
    By controls, we mean the technical security measures or the functional procedures in place to cover a typical security risk. This ranges from a process to ensure patches are implemented in a timely matter to the use of an application to scan systems for security vulnerabilities. We typically operate based on the ISO27001 Annex A controls or the 20 Critical Security Controls, but we are familiar with a number of other security standards as well.
  • Step 2 – Check architecture
    We perform a focused review of your architecture, concentrating on external touch points and network protection of your perimeter and core business systems.
  • Step 3 – Prioritize based on threats
    Actual threats for your organization and business priorities are identified and used to perform a risk-based and strategy-aligned prioritization of actions.
  • Step 4 – Design & Validate the Prioritized Roadmap
    Our deliverables are simple Microsoft Office documents that your team can and will own - and knowledge transfer is part of our standard approach. When opting for an ISO27k-driven approach, our deliverables are ISO27k compliant and have been succesfully audited as such.

CISO as a Service

A security advisor with a team

NVISO can help you implement your cyber battle plan and improve your security posture through its CISO-as-a-Service approach:

  • CISO - the experienced NVISO Security Officer coordinates:
    1. The execution of your Cyber Strategy, based on the outcome of the cyber gap assessment.
    2. Response to day-to-day security questions, e.g. from your clients.
  • Experts - a team of experts in infrastructure, application, mobile, IoT, or ICS security, but also security architecture, security awareness and training, compromise assessments, and incident response, bring the specialized skills required to execute your cyber strategy. 
  • Accelerators - we've done this before, and we bring standardized approaches and templates to deliver quicker and at a lower cost. From security policies and codes of conduct to standard approaches to manage your vulnerabilities or gain assurance on the security of your suppliers, we do not start from scratch. Additionally, our ISO27k templates have even been audited by ISO auditors before.
  • Off-the-shelf solutions - with the support of NVISO Labs, we continuously develop new security solutions that can be injected in your program to rapidly deliver advanced security capabilities at a reasonable cost. Our Eagle Eye service is a prime example of this approach.
  • Network of partners - We are a vendor-neutral consulting firm, but we also want to offer solutions, and not just advice. This is why we have selected a few partners that we believe in, and that can help you with your technology needs around security.

WHY NVISO ?

  • Our CISO-as-a-Service operating model is designed to help organizations with all their security needs - as one person cannot have all required skills.
  • Our accelerators and packaged services optimize your budget and help you move quicker.
  • We serve medium-size customers, we know large size organizations: this helps us understand your stakeholder's expectations. However, we're a small organization ourselves: we know what hands-on advice means.
