Cyber Security Consulting

What can a cyber security consultant do for your organization?

Cyber security consultants use various tactics and methods for obtaining evidence and getting to the bottom of your case. Some of the methods we use for cyber security matters are:

  • Review administrative policies, procedures, guidelines, and specifications as it pertains to information security.

  • Analyze technical controls and software solutions within the business to ensure compliance with senior management’s objectives.

  • Perform user training and audit affects of training to determine if training is meeting the intended goal of behavior modification.

  • Investigate the impact of malware and unauthorized access attempts by threat actors and malicious insiders.

  • Propose risk management plans and processes to minimize existing vulnerabilities within the organization.

Security frameworks and industry best practices are followed to ensure the company’s resources are used efficiently and in support of the business as a whole.

Is hiring a cyber security consultant necessary?

We understand that hiring a cyber security consultant can be a difficult choice. Often senior management does not know the risks associated with their organization, and it seems like hiring an outside security consultant is an unnecessary expense.

However, in the time of data breaches and data theft, there’s never been a more justifiable time to hire a cyber security consultant, even if it’s just for a rudimentary top level view. Cyber threats can cost businesses hundreds of thousands, if not millions, in loss to physical infrastructure, data loss, lawsuits, and fines.

These days, cyber security consultants are an investment that pays for itself.
