While the Internet has become a core component of modern business, it also poses a major threat. Cyber attacks have become all too common—ranging from simple denial of service attacks, to destruction of critical data, to sophisticated data thefts. As a business entity, managing your cybersecurity risks has become an absolute priority. Left unmanaged, your company risks business disruption, theft of business secrets or customers, fraud and, ultimately, a damaged bottom line. As with risk management, there is no one-size-fits-all solution to cybersecurity. At Odell Studner, we approach cybersecurity at the human layer—where business processes and technology intersect. In partnering with cybersecurity experts, we identify and analyze the cyber risks your firm faces and ultimately build a robust, nimble and practical cybersecurity plan to empower your business. Our services include but are not limited to:
Information Risk Audit
Based on the NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) cybersecurity framework, this 99-point audit includes onsite interviews, network testing, a review of policies and governance at your corporate location, as well as a review of people, processes, and technology as they relate to your company’s information security measures. The audit results in a comprehensive final report that includes recommendations (corrective risk mitigation methods, actions and tools) to strengthen your current information security posture.
Penetration testing provides for the identification of security deficiencies and analysis of their impact on your business. By mimicking cyber attacks, analysts exploit your network to find external weaknesses, prioritize potential risks, and provide suggestions on how to cost-effectively ensure your sensitive information is secure.
Phishing is a common method of online identity theft and virus spreading. Phishing attacks vary in appearance. Analysts imitate a sophisticated phishing attack to test your employees and follow up with training to keep your company’s vulnerabilities from being exploited.
Education and Training
Your company’s cybersecurity is only as strong as your weakest link. Experts deliver education through online training and/or in-person instruction. Training packages are offered at the executive level or company-wide to meet your unique needs.
War games test resilience and build capability in the event of a cyber attack. Experts examine how your company responds to a cyber crisis, how you adapt your business continuity plans, how appropriate your contingency plans are, and under which conditions you are likely to fail. This process allows not only for observation and monitoring, but also for feedback and mentoring to ensure your company develops the personal and team skills required to cope with a cyber attack.
Obtaining cyber liability insurance for your company is the essential final step to the information risk audit. The amount of coverage your business needs depends on your level of risk. Odell Studner offers cyber insurance solutions to address the full breadth of risks associated with doing business in today’s technology-dependent world.
