Cybersecurity Strategy

Even mature, highly-resourced cybersecurity programs can overlook articulating a strategy in the absence of specific regulatory requirements. All organizations are well-served to see cybersecurity as an ongoing process that warrants deliberate, intentional mission setting, regular testing, and consistent reporting.

Adversarial Risk Management helps firms of all sizes understand the threat landscape and form a realistic assessment of the likelihood and impact of major threat categories. After this exercise, Adversarial is able to recommend and assist in the implementation of policies, procedures, and controls to prioritize defending against the most relevant threats, regularly testing susceptibility to the specific tradecraft related to those threats, and identifying reasonable, efficient remediation plans to address risks that are discovered.

A "red team first" strategy, employing a range of testing activities including bug bounty programs, penetration testing, third-party ethical hacking, or low-cost tabletop discussions among key personnel is used to identify threats by exploitability and exposure to deploy remediation and controls where they will be most cost effective.
