Comprehensive Cybersecurity Health Check

No one is immune from cyber attacks. More than 77% of organizations do not have a Cyber Security Incident Response plan.

Cyber Health is like Human Health

Cyber health is similar to human health, and information security to medicine. Why do computer systems “get sick“? In information systems (applications, websites, networks and organizations in general), we can observe the same causes and stages of disease as in the human body.

“Bad genes”. Software or configurations may include or use unreliable, obsolete components. This is an example of technical security vulnerability. Vulnerability is an internal flaw of a software product, an information system or an entire organization. Unlike vulnerability, threat is a factor external to the system. For example, computer viruses, hackers, offended employees, competitors or a power surge that can destroy information.

What is the Cyber Security Health Check service?

A Cybersecurity Health Check is critical for laying a firm foundation for your cybersecurity architecture. It will not only help you identify your weakest security areas, but it will also advise you on how to reduce any potential threats that we uncover. A cyber health check will give you with a complete report explaining your present cyber risk status, as well as recommendations for minimising your overall cyber risk footprint, based on best practices such as ISO 27001, CIS 20 Critical Controls, and NCSC guidance. Finally, the health check aims to assist you in identifying your cybersecurity weak spots before they are discovered by attackers and can assist you in identifying your weakest security areas.

A cyber security health check assesses every aspect of an organisation’s IT security to identify weaknesses and failings before they can be exploited by criminals, A comprehensive assessment will consider the roles played by people, processes and technology to give a complete understanding of defence capabilities and their effectiveness.

Check Your Cyber Immunity

Have you ever considered what would happen if your sensitive business or customer information was compromised or your computer systems, technology dependent enterprises or networks were exploited? Building cyber resilience capabilities have become a high priority for many companies operating in critical sectors. 

3columns can help identify your cyber threats and risks and assess the existence, effectiveness and efficiency of a range of industry better practice security controls across a complete range of domains.

  • Does your board receive regular reports on the status of your company’s cyber security governance? If so, how often are the reports received?
  • Have you identified your key information assets and thoroughly assessed their vulnerability to attack?
  • Has responsibility for cyber risk been allocated appropriately? Is it on the risk register?
  • Do you have an effective risk governance structure that your risk tolerance and controls are aligned with?
  • Do you have appropriate information risk policies and adequate cyber insurance?

If you answered ‘no’ to any of the questions, you could suffer considerably from an attack, especially if you are a public sector organization or handle large volumes of personal data.
