FPVG’s Consulting Department offers a vast portfolio of Information Technology Services that will provide a vital insight into your security position with assessments, diagnosis, and audits of data protection, critical infrastructure, and SMACT technologies. By defining and implementing a sound cybersecurity strategy as part of your digital transformation journey, your organization will not only be compliant with any required regulation but also will achieve savings and proper safeguard of assets.
Cybersecurity is part of the critical operation of most entities. It encompasses everything that pertains to protecting your sensitive data, personally identifiable information (PII), protected health information (PHI), personal information, intellectual property, data, and governmental and industry information systems from theft and damage attempted by criminals and adversaries.
The goal of IT policy and procedure is to maximize IT value and promote the most productive usage of IT products and services. IT management policies, and related procedures, are often used to limit and control technology utilization to its healthiest team applications, lower operating costs, and limit risk exposure (financial, security, and otherwise). They are, therefore, a necessary element in your organization that can promote productivity, minimize redundant work effort, and deliver consistency in performance and results.
An IT risk assessment does more than just tell you about the state of security of your IT infrastructure; it can facilitate decision-making on your organizational security strategy. Conducting an IT risk assessment can help identify security threats and vulnerabilities, and locate vulnerabilities in your existing IT infrastructure and enterprise applications before these are exploited by hackers.
Business continuity is an organization’s ability to ensure operations and core business functions are not severely impacted by a disaster or unplanned incident that take critical systems offline. Business continuity planning is the interdepartmental process, often led by information technology, of implementing the tactics used to restore normal business in a set amount of time, define the amount of data loss acceptable to the business, and communicate critical information to organizational stakeholders during and following incidents.
A penetration test assesses the effectiveness of security controls by simulating a real-world attack that mimics current adversary techniques. Penetration testing is useful for illuminating unknown security weaknesses that could result in a compromise. FPVG is uniquely positioned to spot gaps and anticipate shifts in security trends across our diverse customer base and industries served.
Our team will expertly perform a systematic review of security weaknesses in your information system and work with you to improve it. This type of assessment evaluates if your system is susceptible to any known vulnerabilities, assigns severity levels to those vulnerabilities, and recommends remediation or mitigation, if and whenever needed.
Phishing is big business. Attacks have shown record growth in recent years, and a solid security awareness program is an integral part of any defense-in-depth strategy. A Phishing Security Test is a tool that can determine the vulnerability level of your network by giving you an indication of how many people may be susceptible to an email-born social engineering attack.
We are also a qualified firm with expertise in the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (SOX) compliance testing and project management background to perform compliance testing services (in accordance with SOX Section 404).
SSAE stands for Statements on Standards for Attestation Engagements, and SSAE 16 is an attestation standard established by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) to report on the controls and services provided to customers by service organizations. SSAE 16 replaced the SAS 70 audit standard. SSAE 16 compliance requires the service organization’s management to provide a written assertion about the fair presentation of the information system’s design, controls, and operational effectiveness in addition to previous requirements. Trust our team of experts to guide you through the process and stay compliant.
Every year, cybersecurity is increasingly among the top priorities for any company.
