How the My IT Guy Team Conducts a Cybersecurity Assessment?
Because we like to involve our clients in the process, the My IT Guy team always shares the details of how a proper, high-quality Cybersecurity Assessment is done to produce the very best results. While this process may vary depending on the nature of the business, an assessment must comprehend a series of steps that ultimately will help the client to upgrade their defenses.
First, we determine alongside the client the scope of the Cybersecurity Assessment. The assets to be observed and evaluated will be determined as the very first step. Understanding this from the beginning will help to set goals and expectations.
Following the identification phase, our team and the client determine the value of the assets targeted by the assessment. Then the cybersecurity threats that exist for these assets. This process allows organizations to calculate how likely some scenarios are, enabling more efficient decision-making. One thing to pay attention to is how impactful an affected asset can be on the organization as a whole. In this same phase of the Cybersecurity Assessment, we make sure that the client is meeting compliance requirements, and if not, determine the steps to achieve full compliance according to the industry’s guidelines and regulations.
At this point, knowing the value of the asset and the costs of defending, it becomes key to run a detailed comparison. The client greatly benefits from knowing if the cost of preventing exceeds the asset’s value, which is a common scenario. When that is the case, our team will recommend alternative security methods that are more coherent in economic terms.
Finally, when the IT infrastructure is understood and network security vulnerabilities fully identified, the final step in the Cybersecurity Assessment is to propose and implement the fixes and upgrades that are considered of particular value for the client. These improvements are aimed to achieve full compliance while truly ensuring protection to the company’s networks.
