There are different categories of risk that may affect your organization.
Strategic risk is related to adverse business decisions, or the failure to implement appropriate business decisions in a manner that is consistent with the institution’s strategic goals.
Reputational risk is related to negative public opinion.
Operational risk is related to loss resulting from inadequate or failed internal processes, people, and systems, or from external events.
Transactional risk is related to problems with service or product delivery.
Compliance risk is related to violations of laws, rules, or regulations, or from noncompliance with internal policies or procedures or business standards.

Cyber Risk Management
Analysis of an organization’s coordinated strategy for managing the broad issues of corporate governance, and corporate compliance with regard to regulatory requirements. In the IT context, this means making sure that IT systems, and the data contained in those systems, are used and secured properly.
Many States have enacted Cyber Security and Privacy laws and Colorado is no different. In Sept 2018 the Colorado Protections for Consumer Data Privacy Act was passed. Organizations are now legally obligated to implement reasonable security measures to protect documents (paper and electronic) that contain PII. Colorado has implemented one of the toughest data breach notification requirements in the country. There are also criminal and civil penalties for failure to comply.
Do you accept Credit Cards? Did you know that merchants of ANY size must be Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliant? We can provide specific audits of your system against PCI standards to show your compliance level.
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) has very specific Cyber Risk requirements to include audits such as a Vulnerability scan.
Working with the Federal Government requires adherence to the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) which uses the National Institute of Standards & Technology as its basis for compliance.
If you have any European customers then you must adhere to the VERY strict General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) with fines as much as 4% of top-line revenue for violations.
Digital Beachhead provides the tools you need to maintain compliance.
Once a company understands its risk it should test systems to identify, analyze and address vulnerabilities/flaws in hardware/software that could serve as attack vectors from bad actors.
Digital Beachhead uses a 4 step process for conducting vulnerability assessments.
1) Initial Assessment - Identify the assets and define the risk and critical value for each device.
2) System Baseline Definition - gather information about the systems before the vulnerability assessment. Information should include open ports, approved software and basic configuration to name a few.
3) Perform the Vulnerability Scan - Digital Beachhead uses state of the art scanning software to probe systems for all known vulnerabilities.
4) Vulnerability Report - The most important part of the process is providing the customer with a detailed report on our findings to include recommendations for fix actions.
Digital Beachhead recommends these scans be performed at least annually to ensure the risk awareness/security of your systems. In fact if you maintain any Personally Identifying Information (PII) on employees or customers it is incumbent on the company to provide tested safeguards to protect that data.
Unsure if you have PII? Let Digital Beachhead perform a Cyber Risk Management Assessment.
