Security Control Validation Assessment

Measure the capability of your security teams, processes, and technology to determine the organization’s overall business risk. A Security Control Validation Assessment will help test the effectiveness of various security controls in relation to their expected functionality, providing actionable next steps to fix what’s not working and show ROI on what is working.

The Security Control Validation Assessment will reveal how well your controls are protecting the business from different attack methodologies.

Example threat scenarios include:

  • A ransomware attack targeting an internal network.
  • An attack attempting to exfiltrate PII or other data form the internal network
  • An external threat attempting to bypass perimeter network security controls
  • Lateral movement from a less trusted internal network to more trusted internal network.
  • Malware attacks against a remote endpoint.

Tom Gordon, CIO, Virtua

Security has become a necessary and critical strategic pillar for our organization, and it is too broad and complex for a provider organization to keep up with on their own. Having a partner like CynergisTek with depth and breadth of knowledge and expertise is a crucial asset for our organization. I can’t imagine navigating these issues without them.
