Cyber security poses difficult questions for every organization: How much security is enough? Where should I be investing? How do I compare to my industry peers? Fox-IT can help organizations to understand the maturity of their approach to Cyber Security as it is now, as well as it should be, given the threat landscape. Our maturity assessments include technical, process and expertise points of view. We translate the results into a Cyber Security Strategy to develop the cyber security capabilities where necessary, and to guide the organization’s overall security efforts. We help prioritize the Cyber Security Roadmap to ensure that it optimally supports the business needs.
A concise cyber security strategy and corresponding roadmap are valuable tools managing long-term capability development. We have guided and supported many organizations to develop, improve and execute on these plans. Our key advantage is that we can leverage both our proprietary technology and our broad operational expertise in our recommendations and support. There are four key elements to our support:
1. We determine business risks and interests that should be managed through cyber security controls.
This ensures that security measures are in line with business strategy, goals and processes. An understanding of business risks helps us determine which data, systems and people are of particular interest to the business.
2. We assess the approach to Cyber Security and determine whether it is in line with the threat landscape and risk tolerance of the organization.
Although we put emphasis on the technical capabilities, our assessments also focus on the softer elements, such as security strategy, processes, use of technology and approach people and expertise. We also analyze the way core functions of cyber security operations are implemented. The maturity of a company’s cyber security operations is determined and compared to an organization’s ambitions in terms of maturity and risk appetite. Based on the gap between those two, we determine and prioritize actionable recommendations.
