An unbiased Cybersecurity Assessment will either validate your current security posture or uncover risk reduction opportunities.
The Scarlett Group’s Assessment Team is led by ISACA Certified Auditors.
Cyber attacks against big organizations are well-publicized by the media, while attacks against small firms generate little attention. This can give small and medium-sized businesses a false sense of security. In a 2018 survey by the Ponemon Institute, 55% of small to medium-sized organizations responded that they had experienced a cyber crime in the previous year.
According to Forbes, “smaller enterprises find themselves more frequently targeted – sometimes as a conduit to their larger partners and customers.”
Third-Party Cybersecurity Audits and Assessments are a best practice and should be conducted every 18-24 months. We identify and quantify risks which enable you to make smarter decisions about your current technology, potential new investments and the optimal approach to enterprise risk management based on your business goals.
Preparation for Cyber Insurance Quotes and Policy Compliance
Unsurprisingly, more and more organizations are getting rejected for quotes regarding cyber insurance. Cyber insurance providers check for things like exposed services, proper policies, and third-party assessment frequency. Our cybersecurity assessments are the perfect solution for discovering the gaps within your organization's network that may be causing issues getting proper cyber coverage.
Our team deals with cyber insurance agencies on a daily basis. We know what they look for when quoting and we can provide assistance in identifying trouble areas that might stop your organization from even getting quoted coverage.
