Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I do a State of Security Assessment?
Defining the state of security is the first step to improve information security. When taking adequate pragmatic measures you gain control over their risks. Northwave’s approach is more holistic than a ‘simple’ ISO 27001 gap analysis.
It provides an in-depth security maturity perspective. This assessment is key to have a state-of-the-art vision of the state of security (and therefore your security maturity). Besides this, it offers an overview of the risks and the necessary structural measures and quick wins to enhance information security in your company.
What is a state of security assessment?
The State Of Security Assessment, is an integral approach to identify the current state of security within a company. It allows you to evaluate your current level of security. The assessment will help you to evaluate your maturity security level. Typically, a State of Security Assessment is a way to get insights in the key steps to improve your organisation’s maturity. But it can also provide insight in your overal state after a cyber incident or show maturity for acquiring a cyber insurance.
How does a state of security assessment help increase the security of a company?
As part of the assessment, Northwave formulates an expert opinion and actionable advice with which you and your organisation can take the next steps to improve your information security. The result of the assessment is a combination of the insight in the potential risks exposure (the measure of potential future loss resulting from a specific activity or event), your current maturity on information security and a security roadmap that provide you the needed measures to reduce these risks and keep control.
The assessment and the actionable advice will be delivered in the form of report including a security roadmap. This roadmap is a strategic plan in the choices the you can take to reduce your risks or improve your maturity. We will present to results personally together with you towards your board of directors.
How can the findings be implemented?
With the roadmap and recommendations provided on all security aspects (Business, Bytes, Behaviour), the company receives pragmatic recommendations to structurally improve and remain in control of their information security. Some organisations do not have a dedicated security team or the resources to implement and run an ISMS (Information Security Management System), therefore Northwave offers the option of choosing for the SPO (Security and Privacy Office).
The Security and Privacy Office is an outsourced security team that implements and runs an ISMS. This is taken care of by a team that exists out of a security officer and a team of expert managing the security and privacy incidents.
