Posture Assessment

What is a Cybersecurity Posture Assessment?

A Cybersecurity Posture Assessment provides an overall view of the organization’s internal and external security posture by integrating all the facets of cybersecurity into only one comprehensive assessment approach. It is meant to help organizations define where they’re at in terms of their cybersecurity posture, what gaps they’re currently facing and what steps they need to take to improve their cybersecurity posture going forward.

Unlike a penetration test or a standard information security audit, a Cybersecurity Posture Assessment will provide C-Level Executives with clarity and direction in terms of their organization’s cybersecurity posture to maximize the ROI of their security-related expenses. It will help design and develop an appropriate cybersecurity roadmap within an overall security program and business continuity planning (BCP).

Comprehensive assessment for your security investment

Whether you want help prioritizing and implementing known vulnerabilities or are starting from square one, we’ll work alongside your staff to remediate any shortcomings.

Penetration testing

We can demonstrate the destructive power that an attack from the inside, a rogue employee or an untrusted contractor can inflict.

Social engineering

Assess detection of spurious phone calls and email messages designed to trick your employees into disclosing sensitive information and performing malicious actions.

Firewall configuration review

By attempting to breach your organisation’s firewalls, DayDreamsoft LLP penetration testers can detect unsafe configurations and recommend changes to optimize security and throughput.

Secure code review

Run a holistic analysis of source code in your software to discover security breaches, bugs, and violations of conventions.

Our approach to Cybersecurity Posture Assessment

The assessment can be divided into four distinct phases:

Planning

DayDreamsoft LLP Security Project Manager will work in close cooperation with the appropriate stakeholders to develop a detailed work plan, including a clearly-stated aim, a statement of scope, limitations and restrictions, required logistical arrangements, a detailed schedule and deliverables.

Documentation review

We will be provided with all reference material required, and any other information necessary for the completion of these tasks. To do so, a system description is documented, and a concept of operation is defined. Target level of residual risk is determined in consultation with you.

Assessment

Our team of consultants will conduct an analysis of the client’s internet exposure, conduct an onsite audit followed by an analysis of findings, define the overall cybersecurity posture of the client based on these findings and results and propose a prioritized improvement plan including suitable recommendations for the security authority.

Reporting

A draft report will be sent to the client, including all the above-identified deliverables. Once the comments will have been received and integrated, we will provide you with the final report.
