Anyone who has ever had any type of security assessment performed is familiar with the typical result: a long list of recommended remediation items. It’s often difficult to determine which items your organization should tackle first, and when. For the assessor, it’s typically much easier to identify issues than it is to determine how exactly your organization should address them; the assessor simply doesn’t have enough knowledge of your organization.
To address this issue, SecureState has developed an approach of partnering with an organization to co-develop the remediation steps for their security program. Depending on the scope, this will take the form of either an Enterprise Security Blueprint or a Compliance Roadmap.
- An Enterprise Security Blueprint provides a path towards continued security program maturity
- A Compliance Roadmap provides a path to meet a compliant end-state
Every organization has a limited amount of time, budget, and manpower with which to achieve its security goals. It’s rare that an organization has enough resources to meet all of the security goals it has set; making it essential to use these resources on initiatives with the greatest importance. By developing an Enterprise Security Blueprint, an organization can ensure that it meets its most critical security goals. By developing a Compliance Roadmap, an organization ensures that it puts the right controls in place to meet its regulatory requirements; and doesn’t waste resources on the wrong areas, resulting in a failure of compliance.
SecureState has been helping clients prioritize and direct their security efforts throughout its 10-year history; guiding dozens of clients towards their security and compliance goals.
