Our Cybersecurity Professionals Can Help You Protect Your Organization.

Cybersecurity Risk Assessment

Our holistic cybersecurity assessments help you map your current security posture, define your security goals, and identify and manage your risks. Our role as cybersecurity consultants isn’t just to check boxes on a one-time list. Instead, we provide you with the tools for continuous improvement so you can protect your organization today and in the future.

Using a proven methodology, our cybersecurity risk assessment team helps you identify technical, organizational and administrative control deficiencies and strengthen your security processes. Depending on your needs, some areas we may review include:

  • Network security – Where are the physical and technical risks in your network, and what are the most efficient ways to mitigate them?
  • Operational security – Do you have clear, documented policies and procedures around the use of your technology and data?
  • Incident management – Do you have an effective incident management program? Are you prepared to respond to a data breach?
  • Privacy and data protection– Where is your most sensitive data, and how can you best allocate resources to safeguard it?
  • Employee education – Do you have regular cybersecurity awareness training and accurate metrics to measure its success? How do you ensure your employees are aware of their responsibilities?
  • Device Monitoring  – Do you know all of the devices on your network? Do you monitor these devices? Would you know if you had been hacked?

Cyber Program Development & Management

Customers, boards, vendors and other stakeholders want to know that the organizations they work with are protecting sensitive information. A weak security infrastructure can have legal and regulatory repercussions, as well as damage your reputation and bottom line. Our team can help you define, implement and manage an effective cybersecurity program, customized to your needs. Our services include: 

  • Cybersecurity goals – Our experts help you define and prioritize your organizational and program-level security goals, as well as create a detailed game plan for remediating deficiencies.
  • Risk management framework – We work with you to create a cybersecurity risk assessment methodology, define management/stakeholder roles, and develop security policies, procedures and supporting documentation, as well as technical controls and internal testing procedures.
  • Implementation – Our experienced team will help you implement your security program efficiently and cost-effectively, with minimal disruption to your day-to-day business.
  • Project / program management – We can provide ongoing support for your day-to-day needs and help you monitor and continually improve your cybersecurity program.

Cybersecurity Policy, Documentation & Education

A strong security policy is the basis of an effective cybersecurity program. Armanino uses a comprehensive methodology to deliver customized documentation solutions that support your environment.

Our cybersecurity policy and documentation experts examine your business and compliance requirements to identify the policies and frameworks that are needed. We match this against your current policies, then provide a gap report and detailed remediation recommendations. We work with you to augment your existing policies or develop new documentation, and we help you create practical standards for policy maintenance, review and dissemination.

We can also work with you to provide cybersecurity awareness training to your employees including conducting fake phishing email campaigns to determine how prepared your employees are to protect your intellectual assets from phishing attacks.

Threat Protection

We help identify security weaknesses and unauthorized access risks. We enable your organization to create a plan for addressing these weaknesses and educating your personnel on best practices to prevent insiders from exploiting intellectual property or client data. We also partner with cybersecurity technology providers to perform device monitoring, vulnerability scanning and penetration testing.
