IT Risk and Vulnerability Assessment

Research shows that 96 percent of cyber fraud security breaches are preventable with simple controls.

CLA can assess the security of your systems and advise you on how to improve.

What’s on your mind?

  • Securing your systems and applications
  • Avoiding loss of funds or reputation due to data breach or stolen credentials
  • Meeting industry-specific requirements like General Data Protection Retention (GDPR), Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), Gramm-Leach-Bliley-Act (GLBA), and Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) standards
  • Complying with federal and state laws such as the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) or the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)
  • Knowing if internal IT staff have the capacity and specific knowledge to secure your systems and applications
  • Finding the right outside vendors to manage security specific to your organization’s needs

A unique approach

An IT risk and vulnerability assessment is designed to thoroughly root out vulnerabilities and security weaknesses. We will validate where expected controls are functioning effectively and identify systems and processes in need of improvement.

Tools alone can’t assess risk. Our professionals are the key. They will develop a true understanding of your business systems so that observations and recommendations will enhance your IT risk management processes in a manner that fits your operations. Our results are compiled into a user-friendly report that addresses system weaknesses or misconfigurations.
