Cybersecurity governance provides a strategic view of how your organization controls its security, including defining its risk appetite, building accountability frameworks, and establishing who is responsible for making decisions. Effective governance also ensures that cybersecurity activities help to support the organization’s strategic goals.
At Right Hand, we will work with you to create a strategic plan and build out your information security program annual task list and calendar. We’ll lead the monthly information security meetings, create the agenda, and keep the minutes. The Governance module also includes tracking of IS-related audit and exam findings. This is a great way to keep your information security program on track and moving forward.
Does your organization need cybersecurity governance? If you can’t answer “yes” to these questions, then Right Hand can help:
Do you understand your cybersecurity framework and what protections you need? Have you clearly defined your risk management policies, procedures, strategy, and goals? Is your strategy incorporated in a high-level document that establishes a roadmap for your organization to maintain and improve its overall risk management approach.
Do you have the right protections in place? Are daily IT tasks being managed effectively and consistently? Do you have approved, standardized processes that are repeatable? Or is your cybersecurity government program ad-hoc and inconsistent, which can lead to increased security breaches, compromises, and attacks?
How effective are your monitoring processes? Do you have the processes in place to enforce requirements? Is your cybersecurity governance measurable and enforced? Is there accountability for compliance across all personnel levels? Is information provided to senior leaders and executives to facilitate decisions regarding the acceptance of risk to organizational operations and assets, individuals, and other organizations?
Does the focus and direction of the cybersecurity program come from top management? Has the senior leadership remained engaged for the lifecycle of the program to help ensure the information security policy and objectives are established?
Has senior leadership ensured adequate resources to meet basic cybersecurity governance and compliance needs in line with your organization’s cybersecurity strategy and goals? Do the resources include dedicated funding for qualified personnel and their training? Do the resources allow for the procurement of sufficient tools for adequately measuring KPIs (key performance indicators), as well as maintaining repeatable processes?
Most cybersecurity firms do 1 thing for your business. We do 3 – which makes us unique.
Most cybersecurity firms focus on one issue in your IT infrastructure such as network monitoring, creating backups, or disaster recovery. They see only a small piece of your business. We take a strategic look at the whole picture. In today’s interconnected world, managing cybersecurity should not be done in silos. Our high-level experts provide broad, integrated solutions that can meet all of your security needs.
We build a cybersecurity culture, and process plays a key role. We start with onboarding and get well-acquainted with you and your business. Then we move to a system and priority review, followed by a gap analysis. Next, we establish a roadmap and timeline for remediations. We continue to meet with you to offer guidance and assess progress.
Unlike other cybersecurity firms, we don’t hand you a report or assessment and walk away. We meet with your IT and executive teams, explain your situation clearly, listen to your priorities, and show you the solutions. We believe in governance-driven results–evaluating the performance of the measures taken and continually making improvements that align with your business goals.
