Information Security Posture Assessment

The first step to achieving compliance is to undertake an information security posture assessment. It’ll help you understand your security maturity and improve your current level of compliance with the relevant legislation or standards.

The cyber threat landscape is constantly changing - what works today, might not work tomorrow

As such, gaining tailored insight on your current state of security is the first step to improving now and into the future

Whilst an ever-important element of doing business in today’s market, keeping up with changes in today’s threat and regulatory landscapes is proving to be increasingly difficult. These environments are evolving so rapidly that businesses are struggling to stay on top of their information security and compliance goals. Ultimately, this means a growing gap between where an organisation’s current state of security sits and where they’d like to be. A gap analysis or information security posture assessment is the perfect means to an end here, helping you gain in-depth knowledge on your organisation and enabling you to achieve your desired security maturity. 

Content Security's Information Security Posture Assessments provide a clear picture of your organisation's security posture with compliance goals in mind

Strong security foundations begin with a comprehensive posture assessment

Our goal is to uncover your organisation's areas of risk and subsequently, assist in developing a tailored security roadmap for more targeted compliance improvements

Using a refined methodology, we conduct a thorough review of your entire organisation, looking at business goals, administrative functions, information security controls and more.

Above all, this analysis provides you with a clear and concise view on your current and unique security profile. Furthermore, it allows us to compare your current state against industry standards, enabling us to make more focused recommendations for meeting this standard, gaining compliance and uplifting your security posture. 

So, how do we conduct our Information Security Posture Assessments?

Please note this is a high level overview of the assessment process. For more detailed information, please contact our security professionals.

Benchmarking against an Industry Standard

Firstly, every gap analysis needs a target or framework to abide by. This may be ISO 27001, PCI DSS or another benchmark to compare your organisation’s security policies and controls against. The reason being is this framework will provide a standard to which we can work towards.

Interviewing key business stakeholders

Once the framework is decided upon, the next step of the process involves evaluating your people. Ultimately, this is a critical data gathering phase, where we interview your senior management, team leaders and other staff to identify and assess key objectives, as well as the processes within your environment.

Finding areas of strength and weakness

Next, we look at your administrative and technical controls, including standards, policies and technologies in your environment. In addition to any IT projects your organisation is currently undergoing, we make sure to analyse the appropriateness of your policies, the general awareness around them, and communication of them.

Defining the gap with an in-depth analysis

Finally, we're able to provide a detailed assessment of all our findings. In this stage of the gap analysis, we compare the effectiveness of your organisation's security controls to the aforementioned standard, as well as other organisations within the same or similar industry. This allows us to provide visibility on any gaps, and ultimately, provides a basis for improvement.
