Frequently asked questions

How do you prepare for a Cybersecurity assessment?

The role of a Cybersecurity assessment is to ascertain the current state of your organisation's security posture. As a result there is little you need to do to prepare, as this way you get an accurate perspective of where your organisation is at, and more importantly where it is vulnerable and needs to take action. The assessment itself will identify threats and vulnerabilities across your IT environment, helping you to prioritise these and develop a plan for remediation.

What is included in a security assessment?

A cybersecurity assessment analyzes the potential cyber risks to an organization. It involves a comprehensive review of existing security systems and procedures, identification of network vulnerabilities, analysis of cyber threats facing the company and identification of areas for improvement. This assessment also typically includes an evaluation of cybersecurity policies, processes for monitoring cyber attacks, encryption methods and adequacy of emergency response plans in place. A successful cybersecurity assessment will help organizations understand their cyber risk level and identify steps that can be taken to mitigate the risks.

How long does a Cybersecurity assessment take?

The length of Cybersecurity assessments will vary depending on the organization’s size, complexity and level of cyber risk. Generally speaking, a Cybersecurity assessment can take anywhere from a few hours to multiple days. This process involves using Cybersecurity measures like vulnerability scans and penetration testing to identify potential cyber attack targets, as well as tools like network traffic analysis to assess existing threats. With this in mind, the duration of the Cybersecurity assessment should never be rushed - taking the time to evaluate system weaknesses, vulnerabilities and other risks should be conducted thoroughly.

Why perform a Cybersecurity assessment?

 Cybersecurity is of paramount importance in today's connected world, with cyber criminals constantly on the move to target businesses and organizations. Performing Cybersecurity assessments allows organisations to identify their Cybersecurity gaps and vulnerabilities, proactively detect threats, reduce disruptions from cyber attacks, and comply with standards and regulations. This assessment includes evaluating technology infrastructure, networks and systems for vulnerabilities that can be used to access sensitive information; examining applications for weak spots; exploring employee's behaviors, activities and awareness via education about Cybersecurity; and watching for potential malicious cyber activity. By performing Cybersecurity assessments regularly, organisations can develop improved cyber response strategies to effectively handle cyber incidents.
