Cyber Information Security and Compliance
Cask services are designed to help organizations develop an in-depth understanding of their strengths and weaknesses within their computing environments and identify the susceptibility of cyber risk. These techniques are aimed at identifying the organization’s customers, suppliers, service providers and other parties that may possess or have unauthorized access to the organization’s critical assets. This helps the organization understand what areas require additional layers of controls to the reduce the likelihood of fraud, loss prevention and theft of confidential data.
Through workshops and seminars, Cask’s Risk and Security Solutions advisors collaborate with our clients to determine their digital forensics risk appetite and provide visibility and enablement to measure key competencies in preventing and detecting cyber-crimes within their computing environment. Afterwards, Cask constructs tailored solutions that maximize output on mitigating IT risks in today’s landscapes.
Incident Response Assessments
Cask’s Risk and Security Solutions advisors will help train your organization on the tools and techniques needed to combat cyber-attacks and will construct a compliant incident response plan that molds to your IT department’s culture with the needed analysis, containment, eradication, review and recovery methods so that your Information Security Advisors can establish the needed cadence to protect your critical IT assets.
Cyber Insurance Assessments
Cask’s Risk and Security Solutions advisors will appraise your computing environment to determine whether your network, systems, applications and databases have the compulsory controls in place to stay compliant and qualify for cyber insurance to protect your clients, shareholders and employees.
Third Party Risk Assessments
Through workshops, seminars and scheduled walkthroughs, our cyber advisors will determine your organization’s vendor management capabilities, immediately identify areas of improvement and tailor a roadmap for your business to improve its vendor management posture. This allows you to immediately satisfy your clients’ data security requirements based on your industry practices and to confidently know whether your own vendors are using adequate security measures to protect your data.
Cybersecurity Maturity Assessments
Cask’s Risk and Security Solutions advisors will perform a comprehensive cyber risk assessment of the organization’s computing environment to support its’ critical infrastructure, culture and organizational objectives. We do this by providing descriptive rather than prescriptive guidance to effectively identify threats and vulnerabilities around your organization’s endpoints, applications, and networks to reduce the risk of data breach for:
- Loss of intellectual property and personal data
- Customer and shareholder lawsuits
- Compliance audits and sanctions.
The result sheds light on your organizational cyber security practices with an emphasis on reducing cost, detecting malicious events earlier, remediating them accurately and completely and addressing compliance requirements.
IT Audit Readiness Assessments (ISO/IEC 27K, PCI DSS, HIPAA)
Cask’s Risk and Security Solutions advisors perform IT compliance assessments, providing your organization with attestation support to enable an effective control environment. This includes a strategy to meet control presentation, control design and operational goals.
Whether its documentation development in areas of IT policies, standards, procedures or guidelines or IT technical or operational control testing, be assured we have you covered.
Our goal is to confirm your organization is ready to pass its needed compliance audits to enable your business in the required timeline.
Cask’s Risk and Security Solutions Advisors’ philosophy to vulnerability testing first includes a multi-layer discovery of the organization’s people, networks, applications, databases and endpoints to identify all critical assets. Next, we perform a detailed review with computer assisted security tools and manual research.
Afterwards, our Risk and Security Solutions advisors collaborate with your IT Department, Human Resources, Accounting, Finance, Sales and Quality Assurance organizations to investigate for identified false positive vulnerabilities and research appropriate mitigation strategies for each of the remaining vulnerabilities. The final result is a comprehensive vulnerability assessment report with vetted vulnerabilities and appropriate mitigation solutions for your organization’s IT and Business units to remediate.
The strategy of Intelligent Deception has been used for centuries in confusing and alluring the enemy away from valuable assets, and pointing them in a different direction.
The same applies to cyber security as no solution is 100% foolproof and can completely stop a cyber-attack from occurring. Unfortunately, cyber criminals only need to be successful once, which means IT Security advisors need to be working to prevent threats every second of every minute on a daily basis.
For this very reason, Cask’s Risk and Security Solutions advisors believe in taking immediate proactive measures by working with our clients to deploy decoys which lure, confuse, and trap cyber criminals before the damage is done.
Cyber Forensic Investigations
Think you are a victim of a cyber-attack? Our advisors of experts will use forensically sound techniques to determine if a cyber breach took place in your computing environment. We do so by collecting and examining electronic evidence that will make the difference in determining damage assessment, fixing reputational damage and serving as expert witnesses in legal proceedings.
Cask’s Risk and Security Solutions advisors will perform a multi-layer discovery of your organization’s networks, applications and databases to unriddle the blind spots and map out your most critical IT assets and data so that your Information Security engineers, Internal Audit advisors, Compliance advisors, and the business units within your organization have a 360-degree view of where the crown jewels are stored at any given moment.
Post Cask’s Vulnerability Assessment, our Risk and Security Solutions advisors can mimic the attacks of today’s cyber criminals to determine whether the identified vulnerabilities are able to be exploited and immediately determine impacts they have on your organization’s Business and IT operations. Cask will work together with your IT and Business units to provide appropriate mitigation strategies to avoid data breaches.
