Tailored Information Security Assessments, Comprehensive Results
Whether your organization is just beginning to develop an information security program or if you have a mature program that you’re looking to enhance, an information security assessment from the FireOak team can help your organization develop, supercharge, or fine-tune your program.
Our team of experts conducts information security assessments that combine the best of traditional vulnerability assessments with elements of penetration tests to reveal a holistic view of an organization’s security posture.
Traditional vulnerability assessments provide clients with a long list of potential vulnerabilities, but don’t typically include illustrative examples of how these vulnerabilities can be combined by an attacker to allow access to an organization's confidential information, data, and systems.
On the other hand, traditional penetration tests will provide this level of detail, but only document the vulnerabilities uncovered during the test, ignoring many other potential gaps, weaknesses, and vulnerabilities within an organization’s governance, controls, and security operations. Penetration tests can be valuable, but only when an organization has already identified and addressed all known vulnerabilities.
Information Security Assessments: The FireOak Difference
An information security assessment from FireOak will be tailored to fit the needs of your organization, but typically includes:
- A thorough, hands-on technical assessment of the on-premises and cloud environments
- In-person interviews with key stakeholders to understand security operations, practices, and processes
- A review of current policies, procedures, and information/data governance framework
From a technical perspective, these assessments include details on all of the vulnerabilities present in a network, along with clear examples of how these vulnerabilities can be exploited in the current environment. Business leaders appreciate the clear explanations of how systems can be exploited and what the risks are to their organization. IT leaders appreciate the comprehensive technical details included in findings.
Outputs from FireOak information security assessments typically include:
- Practical, action-oriented recommended next steps
- Comprehensive technical findings
- An executive summary
- Q&A with executives
- Knowledge transfer and Q&A with IT staff
