Security Posture

"Cyber-security is much more than a matter for IT." -- Stephane Napo

 

Establishing your security posture is a critical aspect of doing business today. We provide extra eyes on your security posture and help ensure protection from known and unknown threats. We provide the steps and possibilities you can consider that best fit your business.

We assist with improving your security posture, performing risk assessments, establishing risk management, planning business continuity, and reviewing IT security audits.

Security Policies and Controls

IT General Controls

IT general controls (ITGC) are the basic controls that can be applied to IT systems such as applications, operating systems, databases, and supporting IT infrastructure.

 

  • Logical access controls over applications, data, and supporting infrastructure
  • Program change management controls
  • Backup and recovery controls
  • Computer operation controls
  • Data center physical security controls
  • System development life cycle controls

IT Risk Assessment & Risk Management

A correctly performed risk management system of people, processes, and technology enables an organization to establish objectives aligned with values and risks. It is a nonstop process and changes over time. A successful risk assessment program focuses on risk and commits the necessary resources to control and mitigate risk.

Repeating and continually monitoring the processes can help assure maximum coverage of known and unknown risks. It is critical to identify threats and vulnerabilities the organization currently faces, determine the probability and impact of those threats, identify existing mitigating controls, and design audit procedures to test their effectiveness.

Thus, the business protects itself from uncertainty, reduces costs, and increases the likelihood of business continuity and success.

Legal-ishness: Reasonable Assurances, No Guarantees

A security audit (or any audit) cannot prove anything other than an audit was done. The main reason is that security controls, as a subset of a company’s internal controls, are overseen and owned by the management of that organization. As external independent actors, auditors cannot attest to security controls not subscribed to by management.

Therefore, auditors may only attest to the assertions of the organization’s management, and if necessary, security controls to achieve particular principles that need to be added or improved should qualify their opinion issued to management. It is management, not the security auditor, who ultimately decides to secure an organization.
