Security Maturity Assessment

Choosing your battles, risk-based.

Taking a 360° view at your security organization is no easy task. This is where we can help: the combination of our experience in CISO-as-a-Service, together with our deep-dive missions in very large and mature security organizations have helped us to combine a good knowledge of security standards and a practical experience in their implementation in a real-world, budget-aware environment.

Our maturity assessments typically follow the following sequence:

  • 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 manner 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 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.
