How Healthy is Your Cybersecurity Program?

Do you know how your organization’s information security program stacks up? Where you’re the most vulnerable? Technology alone isn’t enough.

Abby Clobridge is the founder of FireOak Strategies. She works with organizations around the world to support knowledge sharing -- including open access, open data, information security -- to connect people to the data, information, and knowledge they need. You can reach Abby at [email protected]


In today’s knowledge-based economy, every organization deals with a whole sea of confidential and sensitive data, information, and knowledge on a daily basis. Having a strong cybersecurity program is no longer a luxury but a necessity in today’s digital world.

But the information security space changes rapidly. Every day, new threats, data breaches, and attacks are in the news. Is your organization positioned to respond to emerging threats?

How would your organization respond to a data breach? Are your cybersecurity operations designed in a proactive model or are operations reactive in nature? Does your infrastructure meet today’s standards? Does your organization’s physical security complement its cybersecurity infrastructure or present vulnerabilities? Are all of the key information security policy and governance components in place? Does your organizational culture promote good cybersecurity practices?

The FireOak Strategies Information Security Assessment reviews over 200 metrics across six high-level areas to assess your organization’s complete information security posture and overall health. Many organizations have a strong technical foundation, but are weak in governance or operations. For other organizations, the Information Security Assessment serves as a diagnostic tool to surface weak spots in cybersecurity practices outside of IT. In all cases, findings help identify gaps and provide recommendations for moving forward.
