Frequently Asked Questions

Some of your questions might have already been answered. Read them here.

Cybersecurity risk assessments are periodic exercises to help companies identify weaknesses or vulnerabilities in their security posture, controls or processes.

A cybersecurity risk assessment enables leadership to compare their baseline to frameworks or best practices, determine existing risks and work to mitigate them. Cybersecurity risk assessments may also be initiated by third party vendors or partners to assess how you are protecting their data. Learn more about both types of assessments in this article or this webinar.

No, a cybersecurity risk assessment does not guarantee compliance, however it can be used as a starting point to achieve your compliance goals.

Our Cybersecurity Risk Assessment Tool maps to several widely accepted cybersecurity and compliance frameworks, such as NIST, CIS, HIPAA, and GDPR.

We can quickly identify areas of improvement that will need to be remediated in order to become compliant. To learn more, we asked the former CIO of the CIA for his tips for meeting compliance requirements.

We will compare your answers to best practices and frameworks and any identify areas of improvement.

You can download the report as a PDF or editable document, and we recommend reviewing the recommendations and providing any notes or additional relevant information.

For each answer that identifies an opportunity for improvement, we will provide general recommendations on why you should consider making a change or direct you to additional information if necessary.

At its core, threat modeling is answering questions about your organization and the data you need to protect, such as:

  • where that data lives
  • who you might need to protect it from
  • how it would likely be accessed
  • what you’re currently doing to protect it
  • how bad the consequences would be if you failed
  • how much are you willing to go through to avoid those consequences
