Risk Assessment

Our security risk assessments are performed to allow organizations to assess, identify and modify their overall security posture and to enable security, operations, organizational management and other personnel to collaborate and view the entire organization from an attacker’s perspective.

  • Identify vulnerabilities, exposures and risk factors that have the potential to cause harm (threat identification)
  • Analyze and evaluate the risk associated with that threat (threat analysis, and threat evaluation)
  • Determine appropriate ways to eliminate the threat, or control the risk when the threat cannot be eliminated (risk control).

A comprehensive enterprise security risk assessment also helps determine the value of the various types of data generated and stored across the organization. Without valuing the various types of data in the organization, it is nearly impossible to prioritize and allocate technology resources where they are needed the most.

What Does Octave Consulting Offer?

Octave Consulting focuses on assessing existing security capabilities end-to-end and helping to identify gaps and ultimately embed best practices across the organization. We generally use National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST 800), COBIT 5.0, and ISO 27002 as the basis of our assessments.

We take a two-pronged approach by conducting a series of interviews across various security domains. Then we perform validation and testing to guarantee that we are reporting on the actual level of security maturity within the organization.

We adopt a slightly different strategy when assessing the existing security capabilities of governments. We still employ National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST 800), COBIT 5.0, and ISO 27002 at the core of our fieldwork, but we also integrate the Oxford Martin Cybersecurity Capacity Maturity Model (CMM) for Nations.

In addition to conducting interviews and completing validation and testing, we broaden our scope to include key stakeholders groups such as academia, technical community, and civil society. This increased scope allows us to provide a more comprehensive perspective on how nations are responding to cyber threats.

IT departments are under increasing pressures to innovate and quickly deploy applications, systems, and networks that drive top line revenues, business efficiencies and competitive advantage. Consequently, platforms are rushed into production with little to no consideration of ‘security by design’.

Our architecture and design reviews are meant to uncover vulnerabilities and provide detailed recommendations for building, improving, or re-engineering your design. Since most vulnerabilities are introduced during the design phase, we seek to identify and remediate these issues before final coding and production release. Our experts are adept at completing security reviews of web applications, network infrastructure, Internet of Things (IoT) platforms, cloud solutions, and other IT deployments.

The Result

Our methodical approach to the assessment of current state guarantees a comprehensive review of the existing architecture, technology & security policy of the organization, management practices and planned changes. Defense-in-Depth techniques will be applied to ensure that robust controls are in place for information transport, and access to networks, endpoints, applications and data.
