SMALL BUSINESS SOLUTIONS
Conducting business transactions, online banking, storing client information, or just sending out emails to employees? Your company faces cyber threats you may not even know exist. When they strike, a business crisis follows. Reputation and revenue fall while you scramble to cover cleanup costs and avoid lawsuits. You risk losing everything you have built, unless you manage the risk.
Cybersecurity is a business problem first and a technology problem second.
Let’s solve them together.
A GUIDE JUST FOR YOU
Cybersecurity: A Business Problem
A business approach to cyber risk management
We pushed aside the technical jargon to explain the business decisions that make the difference between surviving and thriving in the face of rising cybercrime. Get cybersecurity right by managing the big picture, business side of cybersecurity.
THREAT SKETCH CYBER RISK ASSESSMENT
We help small businesses prioritize risks and budgets to help avoid cyber attacks and be prepared in the event one happens.
- Justification – Clear understanding of the value proposition for risk reduction efforts
- Priorities – Objectively determine which areas of risk are the most urgent to resolve
- Strategic Alignment – Match strategic business objectives to cyber spending
- Budget Allocation – Distribute limited time and resources across all areas of risk
- Engagement – Tangible proof that you are addressing cybersecurity
NIST CYBERSECURITY FRAMEWORK & SP 800-171
The NIST Cybersecurity Framework recommends a cyber risk assessment as part of implementation. Our assessment conforms with ID.RA-1 through ID.RA-5, and the following definition from the NIST Cybersecurity Framework:
This assessment could be guided by the organization’s overall risk management process or previous risk assessment activities. The organization analyzes the operational environment in order to discern the likelihood of a cybersecurity event and the impact that the event could have on the organization. It is important that organizations identify emerging risks and use cyber threat information from internal and external sources to gain a better understanding of the likelihood and impact of cybersecurity events.
Our assessment also meets the following definition from 3.11.1 for NIST SP 800-171 compliance.
Periodically assess the risk to organizational operations (including mission, functions, image, or reputation), organizational assets, and individuals, resulting from the operation of organizational information systems and the associated processing, storage, or transmission of CUI.
We provide an alternative to NIST SP 800-30, COBIT, or OCTAVE risk assessments when resources are constrained.
