Best Practices in Five Key Steps

Conducting an organizational self-assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of your cybersecurity program is a critical process that should be an ongoing activity for every organization.

By establishing a baseline security evaluation of your cybersecurity effectiveness, you can measure your progress over time and implement plans to better align your program to your business priorities. This helps prevent data security breaches, improves your security program, and ensures that investments in people and technology are aligned with your organizational priorities.

Here are the five steps outlined in the brief and how summary of CyCognito addresses each.

01
START WITH AN "OUTSIDE IN" VIEW

Get an objective, informed view of your exposure to outside threats with an “outside in” view that looks at your organization from an attacker’s point of view.

 

 

 

 

CyCognito - Gives you an objective, “outside in” perspective of your organization from a sophisticated attacker’s point of view. 

02
ASSESS YOUR ENTIRE ATTACK SURFACE

Assess the attack surface for your entire IT ecosystem, which includes all attacker-exposed assets, known and unknown, wherever they are: on-premises, in the cloud, in third-party environments, or in your subsidiaries.

 

 

CyCognito - Assesses the attack surface for your entire IT ecosystem, including assets in on-premises, cloud, partner and subsidiary environments. 

03
MEASURE STATUS & IDENTIFY RISK

Establish the business context of your assets and their associated risks in order to evaluate the status of your current security program, identify the most critical risks to address first, and develop a remediation plan based on your organizational priorities. 

 

CyCognito - Grades your overall security risk, built upon a detailed analysis of the business context and risk related to each individual IT asset in your attack surface. 

04
MONITOR CONTINUOSLY

Implement ongoing, continuous monitoring to maintain visibility to your changing attack surface and key risks.

 

 

 



CyCognito - Continuously monitors your attacker-exposed assets so that you have constant visibility to your changing attack surface and key risks.

05
TRACK KPIs

Track key performance indicators (KPIs) to measure your internal progress toward both long-term and short-term security goals. 

 

 

 

 

 

CyCognito - Provides reports that you can use in conjunction with your KPIs to help you track your internal progress toward both long-term and short-term security goals.
