Cyber Security Risk Assessment

Cryptoforensics’ cybersecurity risk assessment capability is an integral part of our risk management process designed to provide appropriate levels of security for our clients’ information systems and assets. The risk assessment will help the client to determine the acceptable level of risk and the resulting security requirements for each system in their environment. Information security risk assessment is viewed as an on-going process of discovering, correcting and preventing cybersecurity problems. Cryptoforensics’ consultants have experience with a wide variety of Risk Assessment methodologies including NIST and ISO 27005.

Our consultants have solid years of experience performing HIPAA, PCI, ISO 27002, and many other control assessments. Additionally, we have assisted numerous clients in performing Threat Assessments, as well as pulling together Threat, Vulnerability, and Control data to profile and represent a client’s residual risk.

Cryptoforensics’ risk assessment is conducted in several phases as presented below:

Risk assessment phases:

  • Entire client’s system documentation phase
  • Risk Determination Phase
  • Cybersecurity Safeguard Determination Phase

Cryptoforensics risk assessment report will typically include:

  • A comprehensive summary of the system and applications architecture and other components, and the overall level of security;
  • A detailed list of identified threats and vulnerabilities, the implemented security controls, and their risk levels;
  • A recommendation of safeguards and a clear description of the expected level of residual risks that would remain assuming the implementation of these safeguards.
  • A focused statement of core areas where the client needs to concentrate its remedial efforts.

Today, most enterprises try to deal with cybersecurity threats by focusing inwardly through conducting vulnerability assessments, making detailed network maps, and in some cases, deploying robust patch management processes to continuously monitor their networks and systems. While this approach provides some benefits, against many cyber threats it's ineffective. Most corporate networks are so large and complex that it's simply too difficult to identify all of their assets, or all of their vulnerabilities, and patch them fast enough. Today's cyber wrongdoers are sophisticated, well-funded, and patient—they use a wide range of techniques to penetrate even well-protected enterprises...
