CYBER SECURITY ASSESSMENT
A Smarter Approach to Improving Security
Most breaches happen when we rely solely on software and firewalls to oversee cyber security. The problem is that software setup guides are geared towards making access “OPEN,” and if worse case scenarios aren’t anticipated, many networks are left vulnerable to ransomware, control and command attacks and much more.

Why do I need an assessment first?
Liabilities and risks vary from business to business, and the Cyber Security Assessment serves as a compass, giving meaningful direction for security efforts. You can buy security add-ons/services/monitoring with or without an assessment, honestly, but if you are to meaningfully improve your security posture/maturity — and do it in a prioritized, cost-effective manner —, SOMEONE is going to have to take a holistic look at what your business is trying to accomplish and what’s being done (or NOT DONE) to secure you against the risks particularly relevant to your business model.
Doesn’t my IT provider already cover me?
Let’s look to enterprises as our guide: In enterprise business, there’s a NOC (network operations center) and a SOC (security operations center). They’re staffed by different people and have different, but synergistic objectives. An MSP is like the NOC, who keeps things running, assists users, and maintains configurations. An MSP may perform a few SOC tasks, but that’s not their primary role. There is typically very little overlap in tasks and duties. There is a new term for MSPs that deliver security services: MSSP (managed security service provider). These entities may or may not overlap with traditional MSPs.
