Cyber Risk, Compliance & Strategy

Cybersecurity is paramount to Small and Medium-Sized Businesses today.. As SMBs rely on technology to conduct their operations and store sensitive data, they become targets for cybercriminals. By investing in robust cyber solutions, they can protect their valuable assets, safeguard data, maintain trust, and ensure the continuity of their business operations. We focus on People, Process, & Technology offerings that align with the NIST Cybersecurity Framework.


The Identify phase is the first step in the NIST Cybersecurity Framework and focuses on understanding and managing cybersecurity risks to systems, assets, data, and capabilities. This phase involves developing an organization’s understanding of its overall cybersecurity posture by identifying and prioritizing its assets, systems, and data. This includes identifying critical infrastructure, data, and business processes, as well as determining the potential impact of a cybersecurity incident on these assets. Key activities in the Identify phase include:

  • Asset Identification & Management
  • Risk Assessment
  • Business Environment Understanding
  • Governance Framework
  • Risk Management Strategy

The Respond phase of the NIST Cybersecurity Framework focuses on taking appropriate actions in response to detected cybersecurity incidents. It involves developing and implementing an effective incident response plan to contain the impact of incidents, mitigate vulnerabilities, and restore normal operations. Key activities in the Respond phase include:

  • Response Planning
  • Incident Analysis and Assessment
  • Communication and Coordination
  • Mitigation and Containment
  • Forensics and Evidence Gathering
  • Reporting and Notification
  • Remediation
  • Lessons Learned
