The primary goal of a Security Gap Analysis is to gain insight into the state of security within your organization. Many organizations are aware that much needs to be done, but they lack insight into what needs to be addressed and in what order. Through interviews with stakeholders and documentation, we gain insights into concrete starting points for an improvement plan. This process results in a Roadmap that identifies the highest-priority areas for security.
“Valuable and clear insights in our current vulnerabilities, enabling us to proactively address and strengthen our security. This document serves as a crucial tool in our commitment to protecting our company's data.”
By testing your cybersecurity, you focus on risks throughout the organization by analyzing your organizational landscape and all relevant components. This often leads to numerous findings.
These findings expand the scope of what needs to be tested, requiring the validation, management, and testing of many risks, which costs both time and money.
With a Security Gap Analysis, we start organization-wide but combine it with attack modeling on business units with the greatest business impact and the most relevant threat actors.
Based on the critical assets and threat actors, the most likely attack paths are determined concerning the key business units. This results in a Roadmap sorted by risk to enhance the resilience of an organization.
“A Security Gap Analysis is an accessible way to quickly gain insight into the resilience of your own organization. Most organizations are aware that much needs to be done, but sometimes lack insight into what to do and in what order.”
Following the analysis, you gain insights into the strengths and weaknesses of your resilience. Additionally, you discover the most likely attack paths that threat actors may take towards the organization's key business objectives: 'the path of least resistance.'
With this knowledge, you can then prioritize the right improvements in security, making the most effective use of available financial and operational resources.
