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.

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?

For instance:

  • 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 business leaders for your organization (CEO, COO, CIO, Board members) should be able to answer those questions. If you can’t, it’s time for a holistic review of your organization’s information security program to examine the information security posture and overall health of this critical program. Many organizations have a strong technical foundation, but they’re weak in governance or operations. 

Not sure where to start? FireOak can help surface weak spots in cybersecurity practices across the organization, including outside of IT. We can help identify gaps and provide action-oriented recommendations for moving forward.
