Cyber Threat and Risk Assessment Services

 

The cyber threat landscape facing Australian and New Zealand organisations is more complex than ever before. Adversaries continue to grow in number and capability, alongside a rapidly shifting geopolitical landscape and evolving technologies.

The complexity of the threat landscape is intensified by enhanced consumer expectations in relation to cyber security and data privacy, in addition to emerging and competing regulations, legislation, standards, and an ever-increasing reliance on technology systems.

An Intelligence-Led Approach To Cyber Threat and Risk Assessments

Cyber intelligence enables organisations to understand the threat and to implement appropriate and effective risk measures to respond to that threat. Australian and global organisations are increasingly taking an intelligence-led approach to managing cyber risk.

Cyber threat actors are adaptive, the geopolitical landscape changes quickly and technology is always evolving. At the same time, cyber budgets are constrained, despite regulatory and market pressure to always do more.

We help you to understand the threats that are relevant your external environment, so you can make better decisions about managing risk in your internal environment. Intelligence-led threat and risk assessments help to better prioritise and allocate resources, and triage threats for action.

What is a Cyber Threat and Risk Assessment?

A Cyber Threat and Risk assessment evaluates the level of risk associated with the target organisational assets. Assessments can be targeted to a specific system or process, or more broadly across the wider organisation. CyberCX evaluate and provide findings to organisations on their current risk profile, identify potential threat and provide recommendations for improvement and a lowered risk rating within the business tolerance.

Who should consider an assessment?

All organisations require an understanding of their cyber risk environment but it may be due to different business drivers. An independent threat and risk assessment is suitable for organisations of all sizes implementing new processes or systems or making major organisational changes. Threat and risk assessments can be tailored depending on your requirements, from a single system or process to an entire organisation. An annual risk review will allow you to track your progress over time and validate changes to internal operations.

Why is an assessment important?

Whilst regular internal risk evaluation and treatment is necessary, an outsourced and independent assessment can provide an unbiased perspective on potential threats and weaknesses. Recommendations can be tailored to a prioritised roadmap within organisational restraints, such as resourcing and technology.

Cyber Threat and Risk Assessment methodology

 

Firstly, our consultants gain an understanding of your organisation’s assessment context. Consultants will then step through a process to identify relevant assets and current controls. From there, potential threat and vulnerabilities will be identified. This will allow for the risks to be analysed and evaluated, and recommendations to be determined and prioritised.
