How do you perform information security testing and assessment?

Designing and implementing strong security controls is one side of the coin. One of the primary objectives of a cyber threat assessment is to attempt to gain access by bypassing security controls and verify their effectiveness.

The following metrics collectively help a business to assess, analyse and improve its cybersecurity program continuously:

  • Define specific objectives to measure information security performance in the organisation. This is usually a mix of operational security and performance-related facts and figures unless compliance goals are part of the plan to test against industry best practices.

  • Regular vulnerability assessments and penetration tests on the target assets to assess the level of risk and effectiveness of information security management through checks against secure configuration baselines, patch management, logging, monitoring and several other data security areas covering extensive security vulnerabilities.

  • Internal team review of where security weaknesses lie, policies, procedures and implementation of risk remediation measures from cyber assessments findings and cyber security evaluation. This is delivered in the form of comprehensive cyber security assessment reports.
