Security gap assessments are the principal vehicle used to verify that the implementers and operators of information systems are meeting their stated security goals and objectives. A well-executed assessment helps to determine the validity of the security controls contained in the security plan and facilitate a cost-effective approach to correcting weaknesses or deficiencies in the system. Completing a gap analysis means determining the difference between the level of security in place on your network, infrastructure, people, processes and the level of security that should be in place on your network, infrastructure, people and processes.
Risk is the net negative impact of the exercise of a vulnerability point, considering both the probability and the impact of occurrence. Risk assessment is the process used to identify and understand risks to the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information and information systems. In its simplest form, a risk assessment consists of the identification and valuation of assets and an analysis of those assets in relation to potential threats and vulnerabilities, resulting in a ranking of risks to mitigate. The resulting information should be used to develop strategies to mitigate those risks.
Developing a Strategic Plan for Information Security
Planning always is considered a success factor to implement an efficient program that produces highly qualified results under the limits of time and budget. Therefore, CoEIA dedicates its capabilities and expertise to support the different entities that facilitate the information security strategic plans to ensure the integrity and protection of their projects and systems. Based on the different assessments done by our consultants, the security plan will be constructed to match the different aspects and characteristics of your organization.
Developing Information Security Policies and Procedures
It should be the task of higher management to formulate policies that represent an integral part of the e-government. Therefore, the center develops information security policies and procedures built on the best international standards and practices, while regarding local requirements.
Implementation of ISO27001
One of the most famous and reliable security standards in the world, it has more than 130 security controls to ensure the organization security and provide a safe environment for the organization to perform its transactions and complete its tasks to eventually meet its goals.
Implementation of the 20 Critical Controls
The 20 Critical Security Controls have already begun to transform security in government agencies and other large enterprises by focusing their spending on the key controls that block known attacks and find the ones that get through. These controls allow those responsible for compliance and those responsible for security to agree, for the first time, on what needs to be done to make systems safer. No development in security is having a more profound and far reaching impact.
Administrating Security Projects
Security needs differ from one organization to another, so CoEIA lends a hand to administer and supervise any security project planned for or implemented by any organization in order to meet the desired objectives.
A penetration test is a process of actively evaluating the technical measures of your information security. The information systems and applications will be tested to find any security issues, as opposed to a solely theoretical or paper-based audit. The results of the assessment then will be documented in a report, which will be presented at a management meeting where questions can be answered and corrective strategies can be discussed to identify the issues and give the solutions. There are two kinds of penetration testing:
- Black Box Test.
- White Box Test.
A computer can be exploited to launch attacks, steal information, sabotage resources, or many other crimes and misconducts. Electronic crime is growing dramatically and the outcomes of it can be compared to all other traditional and nontraditional crimes. CoEIA helps to trace and discover these acts using up-to-date technologies. CoEIA also can help establish forensics labs internally at any organization.
In addition to all that, CoEIA can provide a number of technical services, and some of these services are
- Active Directory and Domain Control Security.
- Infrastructure Services Security.
- Account Security and Control.
