Assessments

Our Assessment services help an organization understand their threat landscape, critical assets and protection profile necessary to meet their business needs.  Identifies its current cyber maturity, and a roadmap to achieve business driven protection profile. 

LeveL5Cyber works closely with the client to analyze vendor risk posed by an organization’s third-party relationships, including service providers and suppliers. LeveL5Cyber will incorporate an interview and, if allowed, a tool-based assessment to provide a comprehensive security risk posture. Customized assessments are built on the NIST CSF and related NIST 800 series to analyze your third-party risk.

LeveL5Cyber works closely with the client to identify critical assets, vulnerabilities and controls using a customized infrastructure maturity assessment. LeveL5Cyber will perform an interview-based assessment to provide a comprehensive security risk posture. This risk assessment will take into consideration today’s evolving threat landscape to drive cybersecurity priorities with an outcome-driven approach.

LeveL5Cyber works closely with the client to identify risks and vulnerabilities associated with an organization’s core applications. LeveL5Cyber will perform an interview-based assessment to provide a comprehensive security risk posture. This risk assessment will take into consideration today’s evolving threat landscape to drive cybersecurity priorities with an outcome-driven approach. Customized assessments are built on the NIST CSF and related NIST 800 series.

The M&A Security Guidance and Risk assessment process provides security oversight throughout the acquisition lifecycle. This is accomplished through early engagement at the Valuation Analysis stage to understand the security profile of the company being acquired. The next phase of the assessment begins at Due Diligence, where an interview process is used to validate the security posture and gain deeper insight into potential synergy opportunities or technical debt issues. LeveL5Cyber will use these details to assist in developing the Integration Strategy and potential cost to achieve the desired security posture. Once the deal is closed, LeveL5Cyber can perform a deeper interview and tool-based assessment to provide a comprehensive security risk assessment to further support the integration strategy.

LeveL5Cyber works closely with the client to identify risks using a customized maturity assessment specific to areas including people, processes and technology which are critical to detecting and preventing Intellectual Property (IP) data loss. LeveL5Cyber will perform an interview-based IP assessment to provide a comprehensive security risk posture. This risk assessment will take into consideration many of today’s threats measured against the client’s data leakage protection, detection, and response capabilities.

There will be customer deliverables at each of the three phases of the acquisition process: Valuation, Due Diligence and Closing. Each of these deliverables are designed to inform the M&A and Security teams with information to make appropriate financial, technical and risk-based decisions.

provide customer with five or less questions designed to uncover any major security issues. The output from this is a simple report (one page) and potentially a short PowerPoint. L5c will be advising the M&A team of the findings.

On customer’s behalf, we will interview key members of the acquisition or simply provide the questionnaire for self-submission. The output will be our analysis of their response, identifying any potential risks from an IP loss, technical dept, integration and general security posture. L5c will use this information to assist the M&A team on potential integration strategies.

L5C will incorporate a tool-based assessment to provide a comprehensive security risk posture and aid the other workstreams in their integration plans. The output will be a full asset inventory of IP devices on the corporate network, along with OS based fingerprint and any outwardly available vulnerability details. The assessment will also include: wireless, remote access, domain space? And internal segmentation. An OT assessment can be available with additional SOW.

LeveL5Cyber works closely with our clients to develop the right-sized approach to identifying the risk appetite of the business and align them to how they qualify areas of risk that third-party vendors may introduce to the data, assets and the business charter.

  • Work to identify areas of risk classification
  • Develop workflow processes to evaluate new and legacy third-party vendors
  • Identify trigger events that introduce risk
  • Refine acceptance and awareness of introduced risk

There are many sufficient products and services in the industry to address components of vulnerability management, but even purchasing these as a service can leave gaps.  Vulnerability Management (VM) is not just about choosing between agent-based or authenticated scanning.  A VM Program needs to include risk-ranked assets, assessment process, IT leadership buy-in, integration with support teams and the rigor to consistently execute.  LeveL5Cyber’s Vulnerability Management Program Development offering is designed to work with your company to build or buy the VM tools and processes necessary to have a successful program.

There are many reasons exceptions exist in the IT/OT environment, like legacy applications and vendor discrepancies. Every risk management process requires an exception management process to track business and compliance impact, plan of actions, milestones, accountability, and responsibility.

Areas that could fall under this:

  • Firewall rules that are outside of defined security policies (IT or OT
  • What process must be followed when rules are needed for business but are outside of corporate policies.
  • Vendor risks identified
  • Lack of patching
  • Legacy systems
  • Legacy applications
  • Third-Party applications
  • Proprietary systems
  • Physical security exceptions
  • POAM tracking (DFARS, CMMC)
  • Emergency type situations (MFA down, so revert to password, etc.)
  • Risk Register items
