Strategic program planning and risk assessments means planning in a way that maximizes outcomes. Too many companies reach success once but then end up floundering. The reason is that these companies did not plan with any strategy in mind. Cyber Security Group ensures that all of its clients have a strategic Cyber Security plan that outlines the company’s vision and how it aims to achieve that vision.
Organizations are facing not only escalating cyber security risks, but also the near-certainty that they will suffer an information security breach.
A sharp focus on business structure, culture and risks will enable an organization to better safeguard the data essential to its survival and success. For many companies, this requires a fundamental transformation in how information security is understood within the business.
Creating a Master Security Strategic Plan around intelligence on threats and also business risks will support resilience in a constantly shifting landscape of risk; however, few companies today have the appropriate skills and resources in-house to effectively secure their information assets and at the same time optimize business performance.
Organizations in all sectors can benefit from an objective assessment of their information security programs and structures. Our Strategic Program Planning and Risk Assessment framework is built upon a meaningful analysis of how information security shapes and fits into an organization’s overall risk management structure.
- Understanding your organization’s risk exposure
- Assessing the maturity of your current cybersecurity program and identifying areas for improvement
- Building a prioritized roadmap for project investments and organizational change initiatives
- Collecting information to create benchmarks against other organizations
- Validating that your security investments have improved your security posture
All projects come with a degree of risks (some known, some unknown) and they will contain elements of risk.
Cyber Security Global’s approach is to assess these risks with you, establish appropriate mitigation plans and then proactively manage the identified risks to closure.
Cyber Security Global has a standardized risk management process that is used as a starting point to define the risk management plan.
A risk identification workshop is convened early on in the project planning phase where identified risks are assigned owners who will be responsible for developing mitigation plans. These plans are assessed and tracked by the project office and project risks become an ongoing focus item for the Risk Management Team reporting and reviews.
At a minimum, risk impact analyses and containment/contingrncy plans will include the following:
- Financial impact on the project budget;
- Schedule impact on declared deliverables;
- Quality impact on satisfaction with the deliverable.
Typical risks include:
- Full or partial interruption of service;
- Departure of key employees;
- Shortfall in skills and knowledge;
- Compromised security levels;
- Availability of appropriately skilled resources;
- Lack of transparency;
You can be confident in the knowledge that Cyber Security Global has the skills, experience, processes and resources to manage any of the risks to your Cyber Security projects during all phases of the Cyber Security project life-cycle.
