Nowadays, more than before, each company needs an internal & daily Cyber Security assessment. To do that they need to provide an huge investment and this is a new concern due to the continuous evolution of Cyber Attacks. Risks faces all project aspects: budget, planning, goals, quality levels, and more. In fact, one of the most problematic elements of cyber security is the quick and constant evolution nature of security risks & attacks. Within this environment, the traditional approach is not the solution! Companies needs a Risk Management Platform that could helps to plan, implement, improve and continuously measure their security controls. A Risk Management Platform helps to increases the likelihood of positive events.
Risk Management Definition
The RISK MANAGEMENT is the ensemble of algorithms & processes, that use a stable scientific approach, for the identification, analysis, assessment, control, and avoidance, minimization and/or elimination of unacceptable digital-related risk across the entire organization. It enables the Chief Risk Manager (CRM) to have under control his network 24/7 using an aggregative data indicators of security risk.
Some RISK MANAGEMENT platform can provides you with recommendations on specific operational defensive actions while helping determine which resources should be allocated to match risk tolerance and business strategy.
As is the definition, Cyber Security is the ensemble of technologies, processes and practices designed to protect networks, computers, programs and data from attack, damage or unauthorized access. Cyber security involves protecting information and systems from major cyber threats, such as cyber terrorism, cyber warfare, and cyber espionage. In their most disruptive form, cyber threats take aim at secret, political, military, or infrastructural assets of a nation, or its people. Therefore it is a critical part of any governments’ and enterprises security strategy. Consequently, the hardware physical security is strongly related!
Ensuring cybersecurity requires coordinated efforts throughout an information system. Elements of cybersecurity include:
- Network security
- Application security
- Endpoint security
- Data security
- Identity management
- Database and infrastructure security
- Cloud security
- Mobile security
- Disaster recovery/business continuity planning
- End-user education
Cyber Security Assessment & Risk Management
A secure network architecture should follow a defense-in-depth philosophy and be designed with multiple layers of preventive controls. While preventive controls are ideal, detective controls are a must. There is no way to prevent any attack and sometimes preventive controls fail! Detecting intrusions into a network is not accomplished by deploying a single piece of technology.
To be confident about your network, you need to start with a Security Assessment, fix any revealed risk and continuously monitor it to reveal any further one (Risk Management)
Establishing a well-defined breach and attack simulations exercise program allows organizations the ability to identify malicious or anomalous traffic on the network and determine how the analyst should respond to this kind of traffic. When performing this kind of test, it is important to create traffic which mimics current attack methods.
At arimas we are proud to have different solutions to help companies in their Security Assessment as well as increase their defence to cyber attacks.
