Identify and Minimize Organizational Cyber Risk

Proactive organizations understand that for a cybersecurity strategy to be truly effective, a defense-in-depth approach is required, integrating security at every level of the enterprise. At Silent Sector we believe that governance, technologies, staff, and vendors all play important roles in every organization's security program and should be reviewed at least annually.

Silent Sector's Enterprise Cyber Risk Assessment (ECRA) is tailored to the unique nature of each client's company, industry, budget, timeline, and compliance requirements. We know becoming compliant can be a major headache and that checking the “compliance box” often gives a false sense of security – effectively increasing customer trust, but not truly honing in on securing your enterprises infrastructure. This is why our Expert-Impact Methodology focuses on reviewing the entire risk surface and not just applying minimal security for the sake of compliance with legal and industry regulations.  Our team will help you understand how to efficiently achieve more with the resources and technologies you've already invested in thus, maximizing security within the capabilities of your organization.  Silent Sector strives to reduce trial and error to achieve both a robust security posture and compliance requirements.

The ECRA's activities consist of a combination of penetration testing, technical analysis, governance and documentation review, and staff interviews.  It is based on the objectives and requirements of each client, incorporating some or all of Silent Sector's assessment and testing services.

While the ECRA is designed to be robust enough to provide a thorough understanding of cyber risk and provide remediation guidance, it is also accessible to mid-market and emerging companies working with limited resources.

Common Scope Considerations:

  • Size of technology environment
  • Internal and external testing complexity
  • Web application complexity
  • 3rd Party vendor reviews
  • Timing of testing and assessment activities
  • Deprecated systems
  • Unique applications
  • Reporting requirements
  • Compliance & customer requirements

 

Common Deliverables:

  • Executive and technical level reporting
  • Attestation letter for use with clients and prospects
  • Attack Surface Model™
  • Calculated risk ranking and exposure of current assets, data, and 3rd parties
  • Remediation recommendations to reduce attack vectors
  • Risk validation evidence
  • Scans and testing tool exports
  • Cyber risk reduction consultations
  • Retest to confirm effective remediation efforts

WHO BENEFITS FROM AN ENTERPRISE CYBER RISK ASSESSMENT?

The Enterprise Cyber Risk Assessment is designed for mid-market and emerging companies across multiple industries.  It benefits in-house and 3rd party IT and security resources with detailed information and guidance.  It also provides a high-level, non-technical overview for executive staff and stakeholders.  Silent Sector focuses heavily on support for companies in the Southwest and Rocky Mountain Region but can provide the same quality ECRA to companies nationwide, as services can be performed remotely with onsite visits if required.  Clients in technology and compliance heavy industries such as healthcare, financial services, manufacturing, and SaaS accelerate their cybersecurity programs and achieve long-term savings with the ECRA from Silent Sector.
