Expert-Guided Security Solution

Security Program Blueprint

Work directly with our security team to build a customized security program blueprint in an easy-to-understand format with limited use of complicated cyber security terms and jargon. Schedule a facilitated session with our team to generate a blueprint that includes your security program scope, resourcing requirements, roles, and responsibilities that align to your business objectives.

What is the Facilitated Session?

It’s a one-hour session with a member of our team to ask about your current security program. This is designed for anyone with an interest in improving their current cyber security program.

If you’re not sure where to start, we will teach you how to collect more information about your security environment and get the next steps.

If you have a working understanding of security and information on the specifics of your program like your resources and relative maturity, we’ll use the session to provide specific information about scope and resource considerations.

The session covers areas like policies, asset management, human resources, access control, compliance, and more.

FAQ

Can I use your application without having to talk to an expert?

Yes, but we've found that many people who are new to cyber security face a steep learning curve. This makes it difficult to develop an appropriate plan without any expert guidance to explain the whats and the whys during program development.

We've combined the facilitated meeting with our program development tools to maximize the benefit for organizations that want to build or optimize their security programs.

Is this just a sales tactic?

Yes and no. Over the years, people come to us thinking that a virtual CISO is all they need for a healthy security program. We've found that it's best to educate organizations on what they need in an effective security program. This is all an opportunity for our team to learn about what your organization specifically needs and a chance for our team to show organizations what goes into security program development.

Whether you want to use our services in some capacity after we've walked you through the process is entirely at your discretion.

Does this process align to best practice?

Yes, our approach utilizes all of the recognized best practice frameworks available to help develop your program requirements. You have the opportunity to set how strictly you want to align to best practices. This is important, especially if you want to optimize the number of resources or people you'll need on your future security team.

Most best practice frameworks such as ISO 27001, NIST, etc, only focus on complying with specific requirements rather than optimizing and ensuring the best practices are efficient. Our progress-based approach does both.

Do I need to be familiar with security to use this tool?

Nope! Our solutions are designed for anyone that wants to understand what it will take to build the best security program for their organization.

I am an expert in security. Should I use this?

We've found that experts in security may get the most value by taking our baseline assessment first. On the other hand, we've learned that experts appreciate the facilitate experience so that everyone is on the same page regarding security program development with a visual presentation of tools at the end.

 

How long does this take?

The facilitated session takes about an hour.

How much does this cost?

This only costs an hour of your time!

Can I try the baseline assessment first and then do the facilitation?

Absolutely! The baseline may be a good test of your understanding in security program development. If, while taking the current state assessment, you find that some of the concepts or questions are confusing, you can schedule a facilitated program analysis.

What is a progress-based approach to security?

A progress-based approach focuses on creating security programs that enable informed decision making and then the ability to execute those decisions in the most efficient manner possible. This is coupled with being able to understand the processes within your organization with the ability to have enough resources to perform those processes efficiently.
