Security Control Validation Assessment

Measure your security safeguards’ effectiveness against today’s threats so you can focus your resources on creating the best defenses and prove ROI.

Overview

The Security Control Validation Assessment will reveal how well your controls are protecting your business from different threat actor tools, techniques, and procedures, measuring the capability of your security teams, processes, and technology to determine overall business risk. It tests the effectiveness of various security controls in relation to their expected functionality, providing you with actionable next steps to fix what’s not working and show what is working.

A Security Control Validation Assessment identifies the level of confidence with which an organization can respond to the latest threats, attack patterns, and zero-day vulnerabilities. The assessment also gives you the ability to demonstrate to executives the ROI of your security investments. And by understanding the offensive strategies coming your way, you can prioritize security measures to create the best defense.

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.

CynergisTek’s social engineering and phishing service was an excellent training tool for our organization. A third-party assessment of how our policies and procedures would stack up against a real threat was eye-opening and provided us with valuable information we can leverage to continue to enhance our security posture.
