Assess


A common Southern U.S. phrase is: "If it ain't broke, don't fix it!" That means you have to know what works and what doesn't. Assessments are the only way to really know. Security vulnerability assessments, penetration tests, and response plan testing can identify coverage gaps and protect you from potentially substantive consequences. Even if an assessment finds no gaps, the process itself provides assurance of security posture and keeps personnel current on your security policy. Organizations that aggressively test their plans react better and faster when interruptions occur.

Solomon Consulting Inc. is here to help you be prepared. We'll work with you to identify gaps that could cause problems and suggest changes to mitigate those gaps in a resource-effective approach.

Our complete assessment services determine how well your organization meets requirements, including:
  • Security policy
  • Regulations
  • Industry standards
  • Legislation
  • Stakeholder requirements
  • Post-event analysis (forensics)
