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 cybercrime in the previous year.  

According to Forbes, “smaller enterprises find themselves more frequently targeted – sometimes as a conduit to their larger partners and customers.”
