Build a strategy

Whether you’re building a new program or enhancing the current, we’ll evaluate your strengths and help you turn opportunities into action. You’ll know where you want to go, and how to manage your path to get there.

Information security (IS) & privacy risk strategy

What it is:

We help you build or enhance your strategy based on KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) and KRIs (Key Risk Indicators) to grow towards the right maturity goals. You will know where you want to go, and how to manage and measure your path to get there.

What to expect:

  • Deeply experienced strategic and technical resourcing to enable a holistic, attainable, and measurable strategy
  • Actionable strategic plans that addresses people, process and technology
  • Alignment to top maturity measurement frameworks

Incident response planning

What it is:

We will help you build a response plan and train your staff and leadership to be prepared and effective in the time of cyber crisis. While you can never provide 100 percent assurance that an incident won’t happen, you can have complete control over building and rehearsing your incident response before it occurs which is critical to your ability to weather the storm.

What to expect:

  • Cross functional plans and exercise
  • Actionable plan to address multiple scenarios
  • Robust improvement plans so you continuously get better as a team
  • Increased buy-in from executive stakeholders who better understand their roles and how they can help

IS & privacy maturity management

What it is:

We will help equip you with tools and techniques to manage your program in a streamlined way with KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) and KRIs (Key Risk Indicators). While we can provide an ongoing independent program maturity management service, we are most satisfied when we have equipped you to easily do it yourself within your team.

What to expect:

  • Clarity of strengths, weaknesses, and opportunities for improvement
  • Prioritization and formulation of a roadmap to achieve your risk reduction goals over time
  • Unbiased strategic guidance (we aren’t trying to sell you hardware and software and have no hidden biases that will compete with your maximized risk reduction value)

Vulnerability risk management (VRM) strategy

What it is:

We can help you build a vulnerability risk management strategy, program, and governance to ensure your organization is proactively identifying technical vulnerabilities and directing appropriate risk-based mitigation against them. Our goal is to always provide solutions that you can scale and sustain.

What to expect:

  • Analysis of your current state with prioritized recommendations for improvement
  • Development of tactical, strategic, and governing processes to make VRM successful within your organization
  • Analysis and selection of the right tool sets to support your program and scale to your needs

Organizational change management (OCM)

What it is:

Organizational change management is the method of leveraging change to bring about a successful resolution for company transformations. It is so critical for cybersecurity and often under-utilized. We bring certified change management professionals to the table to enact lasting changes that make your cybersecurity programs more impactful.

What to expect:

  • Stakeholder analysis
  • Risk to success analysis and recommendations (based on organizational change readiness and sponsor selection)  
  • Change management roadmap and communications plans
  • Executive and management team coaching (ADKAR model)
  • Executive change management orientation and coaching (The model, what to expect based on common challenges, what’s key to your organization success)
  • In-progress resistance measurement and management techniques
  • Change management strategy production
  • Reinforcement plan production

Third-party risk management strategy

What it is:

Understanding and managing third-party risks are critical to the success of any security program. This is increasingly important as threat actors have increasingly targeted third parties as a back door into the target organization. We offer end-to-end support to focus your strategy on what matters most, from building processes to providing execution support.

What to expect:

  • Comprehensive strategy and process development for third party risk
  • Integration into other third party risk and operational processes
  • Capabilities to operate your program for you (TPRM as a Service)
  • Help responding to YOUR customer third party assessments (helping to position you most favorably with your customer information security demands)

M&A integration strategy

What it is:

Mergers and acquisitions are high-risk business activities that can include cyber risk. The biggest challenge is not looking at cyber risk early enough in the deal process. We will help you develop the roadmap to transition the M&A into the future desired state while protecting what’s most important to the business.

What to expect:

  • Acquisition target due diligence, risk assessments, and penetration tests (know what you are buying, similar to a home inspection while buying a house)
  • Integration support (whether you are folding them into your existing information security program or creating ways to improve what they have in place)
  • M&A cyber governance to ensure decision making is clear and risk-based decisions are made with the right data
