The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) published an important document called the NIST Cybersecurity Framework back in 2014 which outlines Technical Controls that government organizations and companies should put in place to help simplify the management of security risk and achieve more secure information systems.
Unfortunately, even with recent cybersecurity hacks, most companies don’t have a long-term security strategy in place that meets even a handful of these controls. With the recent increase in cybersecurity attacks, IT departments are too busy putting out fires to find the time to make sure their company is protected on all levels.
Based on the NIST Cybersecurity Framework, DynTek has identified a set of 57 technical controls that help companies find their cybersecurity gaps and fill them before it’s too late. We can help you identify what controls are already in place, where your security gaps are, and which ones need immediate attention. Most importantly, we help you create a long-term security strategy aligned with your organization’s needs. Here’s how it all begins…
- Identify the key business strategies and associated risks through a security assessment.
- Document and prioritize the risks based on IT’s understanding of the strategy.
- Identify and select solutions to address each area of prioritized risk.
- Create a 2-3 year prioritized security control/solutions roadmap which can be presented to executive management for final determination and budget allocation.
If you’re running into more security gaps than you’re comfortable with, make sure to contact us at DynTek to help close them and streamline cybersecurity protection. Also, download DynTek’s publication, Security Insights, which will educate, inform, and prepare users so that when change in IT processes and systems is needed, you will be ready.
