Is Your Organization at Risk?

A security assessment is a critical first step to understanding, identifying, and resolving your IT vulnerabilities and risks. Ezentria consultants specialize in helping small and midsize businesses (<500 employees) with limited internal resources assess their environments for compliance with security best practices and industry standards. If we find a weakness, our team will also help you implement an appropriate fix.

These assessments are often a requirement of industry-specific information security and frameworks such as PCI DSS, HIPAA, ISO 27001, and FISMA. If you require an assessment for Compliance Certification and need help with other aspects of preparing for your audit, learn more about our Ezentria ComplyWise program.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a security assessment?

A security assessment uses a methodology to analyze information assets for vulnerabilities and potential threats. The methodology can use quantitative or qualitative scores to identify and prioritize risks. Risks above the organization's acceptable level will need to be treated.

Who performs a security assessment?

While some large organizations may have internal resources that can perform a security assessment, most small and midsize businesses will require assistance from external experts. An information security consultant or compliance specialist can usually perform a information security assessment. An experienced consultant will bring proven techniques and best practices. Choose a consultant that has experience in your industry with similar-sized companies.

What are some security risk assessment methodologies?

Most security frameworks don't specify the methodology to use. However, some provide minimum assessment requirements. Popular models include ISO 27005, PCI DSS, Capability Maturity Models (CMM), and Factor Analysis of Information Risk (FAIR).

What is a vendor risk assessment?

A vendor risk assessment looks at the risks of doing business with companies within your supply chain. This can include suppliers, partners, and customers that transact business electronically or have access to your network infrastructure. The assessment will identify the risks and determine if they can be eliminated or lowered to acceptable levels.
