Developing and Implementing Your Information Security Program

Pratum’s Virtual CISOs develop security programs and our Virtual Security Team implements plans by utilizing a combination of services. These service are tailored to your organization and designed to execute cybersecurity initiatives while achieving business objectives.

IT Risk Management

By understanding security risk and the impact it may have on an organization, Pratum’s cybersecurity consultants set the foundation for a formalized IT risk management program. Beginning with a risk assessment, organizations can realize a positive ROI by prioritizing expenditures in a manner that improves security posture while aligning risk with acceptable tolerance levels.

IT Audits

IT audits provide insight into potential gaps in processes and procedures in a technology environment. Audits identify problem areas by reviewing how well technology controls are designed and implemented.

Policy Review and Development

Policies must be designed to support risk management goals while maintaining business operations. Pratum’s process involves one-on-one interaction with business leaders, providing consultants with the insight necessary to draft your policies in a manner that will support your objectives.

Penetration Testing

Penetration testing is a proactive approach to discovering exploitable vulnerabilities in your computer systems, network, and web applications. Gaining an understanding of these vulnerabilities will enable you to resolve issues before an attacker interrupts business operations with a devastating security breach.

Social Engineering

By performing social engineering assessments of an organization’s facilities and employees, Pratum is able to establish the baseline security posture and make recommendations for modifying and developing stronger policies, procedures, and security awareness and training practices. Social Engineering services include Pretexting Phone Calls, Email Phishing, Dumpster Diving, and Facility Access - Onsite Security Assessment.

Security Awareness and Training

When implemented properly, security awareness and training activities can lead to greater reporting of suspected attempts to compromise an organization’s critical assets and fewer instances of employees falling prey to cyber threats and tactics.

Cybersecurity Consulting

Pratum consultants meet with clients to gain an understanding of their organizational culture, risk tolerance levels, regulatory environment, and industry pressures. This allows the team to approach information security using a risk-based methodology, enabling customization of each solution.

Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery

Business continuity and disaster recovery planning are critical to a business’ ability to weather interruptions to business functions and recover in case of a disaster. We help you identify critical assets and plan accordingly.

Compliance and Controls

Pratum’s vCISO will help discover a balance of risk management and security without compromising your organization’s mission and budget. Rely on Pratum as your partner for achieving HIPAA, SOX, PCI, GLBA, and FISMA compliance, preparing for SOC 2, and identifying and evaluating appropriate frameworks and controls (NIST, ISO, CoBIT, etc.).

Pratum is a great partner to us in providing valued information security guidance and advice to our organization. Pratum’s team of professionals are able to integrate well with our team and provide the needed consulting to make our information security program successful.
