Security Risk Assessment

Assessing Your Exposure to Risks

Our free MSSP evaluation checklist provides the questions you should be asking your current or prospective MSSP to determine if your cybersecurity posture is as solid as it could be.

The Take Note IT risk assessment is a custom-designed approach that combines two well-known methodologies and blends them together for use by most organisations. Our security analysts employ the NIST cybersecurity framework guidelines to conduct a detailed analysis that quickly and accurately defines an organisation’s risks.

Understanding the risks that could impact your sensitive data is an important part of any cybersecurity program. Taking a detailed look at your current security landscape and how you are set up to prevent, detect and respond to incoming threats is an important part of any cybersecurity program.

Only after you understand the real risks your secure environment faces can you begin to formulate a plan to protect it.

Risk Assessment Process

A Take Note IT security risk assessment is designed to

Identify areas that are most at risk
Prioritise any high-value locations that are the most susceptible to attack
Protect those assets from phishing, malware, ransomware and other types of threats

Intrusion Response Orchestration

Automated, Orchestrated Security Response

Attackers and malicious code move fast. When monitoring and prevention efforts do no stop an attack from happening, fast action is needed to block active attacks, contain compromises and minimise damage. When an attacker is scanning your network, a compromised device is communicating to a malicious external location, or malware is propagating laterally, a manual response is often not fast enough to contain the threat and prevent a breach.

Incident Response Coordination

A cyber incident response team may be called together to investigate, recover, remediate and discuss disclosure of an incident. Take Note IT can provide a single point of ownership to monitor workflow and manage this process.

Playbooks for IR Manual Response

Playbooks are a defined process to perform an Incident Response investigation, response and remediation that may automate several steps in the process through proactive defence modules and present results to an IR analyst for review and follow-up action.
