Assessments

Ensuring Compliance and Security Measures

Data privacy, also known as information privacy, is the practice of protecting private information by controlling who can access and use it. Data privacy is important because it protects the personal information of individuals and organizations. Without data privacy, individuals could be at risk for identity theft, fraud, and other forms of abuse.

Organizations must protect the personal information of their employees, customers, and other individuals. They can do this by conducting a data privacy assessment. A data privacy assessment is a process of evaluating how well an organization is protecting the personal information of its employees, customers, and other individuals.

There are many common data privacy regulations that organizations must follow. The most well-known data privacy regulation is the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) from the European Union. Other common data privacy regulations include the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). Organizations must understand and follow these regulations to protect the personal information of their employees, customers, and other individuals.

There are several steps that organizations can take to carry out a data privacy assessment. The first step is to understand the data privacy regulations that apply to the organization. The organization should then identify the personal information that is collected, used, and stored. Next, the organization should assess how well it is protecting this information. This includes evaluating how well the organization has implemented security measures and polices to protect the personal information of its employees, customers, and other individuals. The organization should also review its incident response plan to make sure it is prepared to respond to any data breaches.

Information security risk assessment is the process of identifying, quantifying, and managing the risks to information resources. The goal of an information security risk assessment is to identify the risks that could adversely affect an organization’s ability to protect its information and its employees, customers, or other stakeholders.

The goal of an information security risk assessment is to identify the risks that could adversely affect an organization’s ability to protect its information and its employees, customers, or other stakeholders. The process identifies the threats to which a system might be exposed and estimates their impact on each resource being protected. It also assesses controls in place or planned to reduce these threats and determines if they are sufficient given the estimated impacts. Finally, it recommends additional protective measures that should be considered when there is insufficient protection due to lack of adequate controls or threat mitigation capabilities

There are a number of different risk assessment methodologies, including the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Special Publication 800-30, the ISO/IEC 27005 standard, and the COBIT 5 framework. Each has its own strengths and weaknesses, and no one methodology is perfect for every organization. It is important to select a methodology that meets the specific needs of your organization and that you are comfortable using.

    The three phases of information security risk management are

In the assessment phase, the risks to information resources are identified and quantified. The response phase involves developing and implementing plans to reduce or mitigate the risks. The monitoring phase involves ongoing evaluation of the risk management strategy to ensure that it is effective in reducing the risks to information resources

Compromise Assessments

Compromise assessment is the process of identifying, quantifying, and managing risks associated with a potential cyber-attack. The goal of a compromise assessment is to provide organizations with the information they need to make informed decisions about how to best protect their systems and data.

There are a number of different types of compromise assessments, but all share a common goal: to help organizations understand the risks associated with a potential cyber-attack. By understanding these risks, organizations can make better decisions about how to protect their systems and data.

    The three phases of information security risk management are

Technical assessments focus on the technical aspects of an organization’s systems and networks, while non-technical assessments focus on the organizational, managerial, and cultural aspects of an organization.

Technical assessments typically involve a review of an organization’s system configuration, network architecture, and security controls. These assessments can be performed by internal staff or by external consultants.

Non-technical assessments typically focus on organizational factors such as the culture of an organization, the way it handles information security, and the way it responds to incidents. These assessments are often performed by external consultants.

Compromise assessment services can help organizations identify and quantify the risks associated with a potential cyber-attack. By understanding these risks, organizations can make better decisions about how to protect their systems and data. These services can also help organizations prepare for and respond to incidents.

GRC360 can help organizations with compromise assessment in a number of ways.

First, GRC360 can provide organizations with access to a range of technical and non-technical assessments. These assessments can help organizations identify and quantify the risks associated with a potential cyber-attack.

Second, GRC360 can help organizations prepare for and respond to incidents. GRC360’s Incident Response Plan (IRP) can help organizations quickly respond to a cyber-attack, and GRC360’s Breach Response Services can help organizations mitigate the damage caused by a breach.

Finally, GRC360 can provide organizations with access to expert advice and resources. This advice and support can help organizations manage their risk and protect their systems and data.

A cloud security assessment is the process of evaluating the security of a cloud environment. This evaluation may include an assessment of the cloud provider’s security controls, an assessment of the organization’s ability to securely integrate with the cloud, and an assessment of how the cloud will be used.

Cloud security assessments are important for organizations that are considering moving to the cloud, as well as for those who are already using cloud services. These assessments can help organizations to identify potential risks and vulnerabilities, and to develop strategies for mitigating those risks.

    The three phases of information security risk management are

A cloud security assessment can be conducted by an internal team or by an external provider. When selecting an assessor, organizations should consider their experience, expertise, and resources. Additionally, organizations should ensure that the assessor has a good understanding of the organization’s security requirements and policies.

Once an assessment has been conducted, the findings should be reviewed and analyzed. Organizations should then develop a plan for addressing any risks or vulnerabilities that were identified. This plan should be designed to mitigate risks and improve the overall security of the cloud environment. Additionally, the plan should be reviewed and updated on a regular basis to ensure that it remains effective.

GRC360 can help you identify and assess your cloud security threats. Our experts can provide guidance and recommendations to help you improve the security of your cloud environment. Contact us today to learn more about our cloud security assessment services.

Vulnerability Assessment is the systematic analysis of the security vulnerabilities in the computer networks, hardware, applications and systems. It is essential to perform the vulnerability assessment of all the systems of the organisation so that pre-emptive measures can be adopted at an earlier stage to mitigate the risks. Our professional experts possess relevant and vast expertise in this area and have delivered their services efficiently to clients.

A comprehensive vulnerability test identifies, prioritizes, and assigns severity levels to the identified weaknesses, and recommends how to mitigate them.

GRC360 offers complete vulnerability assessment service designed to identify system vulnerabilities, validate existing security measures and provide a detailed remediation roadmap.

Our team, equipped with the latest tools and industry-specific test scenarios, is ready to deliver a thorough checkup to pinpoint system vulnerabilities, as well as flaws in OS, loopholes in configurations, and potentially dangerous non-compliance with security policies.

We conduct a proper vulnerability assessment by using these steps in order to achieve the clear, correct and concise assessment results.

    1. Defining and planning the scope of testing

2. Vulnerability identification
In the second phase we conduct a vulnerability scan of IT infrastructure and make a complete list of the underlying security threats. To achieve this step, we do an automated vulnerability scan as well as a manual penetration test to validate findings and reduce false positives.

3. Analysis
In the analysis phase we use a scanning tool to attain a detailed report containing different risk ratings and scores for vulnerabilities. After the careful analysis of the scores we identify which vulnerabilities needs to be dealt with first and prioritize them based on the factors such as severity, urgency,potential damage, and risk so that these vulnerabilities can be fixed.

4. Treating the vulnerabilities
In this last phase, remediation method is used to fix the vulnerabilities identified and analysed in the previous phase. Remediation involves fixing a vulnerability fully to prevent any exploitation. It can be achieved through the fresh installation of security tools, or a product update. The vulnerability remediation process is based on the priorities set during the analysis phase and requires the participation of all stakeholders.

A social engineering assessment is a simulated test which aims to measure the information security awareness levels of an organization’s personnel by exploiting its employees natural humanly tendencies of trust, friendliness, pre-conceived assumptions, authoritative biases, emotional needs, among others. In Social engineering tests, the assessment team attempts to make direct contact with targets, either by telephone or in person or sometimes even through physical access of restricted areas within the organization.

The assessment uses psychological manipulation to deceive people into performing adverse actions like clicking on fabricated links, opening malicious attachments, sharing personal details and divulging confidential information about the organization. During the test, the social engineering team develops user-context specific pretexts that are familiar to targeted employees, and then uses their trust to lure them into taking unwarranted actions. Such tests often completely bypass technical security controls.

The ultimate impact of a real-world social engineering includes complete compromise of organization including business data, employee information, emails, credentials, source code, customer data, etc.

The GRC360 Social Engineering services assist our customers in assessing the ability of the organisation’s systems and personnel to detect and respond to targeted social engineering attacks. The assessment is planned in close coordination with the customer point of contact to ensure that the testing is performed in a controlled manner. By simulating the tactics, techniques and procedures (TTP’s) used by adversaries, our comprehensive assessments aim to review the technical/process/people controls implemented within the organization. The outcomes from such assessments include:
