Whether an existing cyber security program is in place or just getting started, Homeland Security Consultants provides effective guidance and services aimed at strengthening the cyber security posture of your organization, agency, or business.

Homeland Security Consultants conducts the following process when engaging in Enterprise Security Management services:

    1. Work with executives to identify clear cyber security objectives and performance targets.
    2. Develop a Cybersecurity Enterprise Evaluation Plan based on business/mission priority, risk appetite, and budget.
    3. Evaluate business processes to determine existing risk management maturity.
    4. Evaluate technical cybersecurity implementations to determine threat identification capability.
    5. Evaluate technical cybersecurity implementations to determine attack resiliency.
    6. Provide actionable cybersecurity program improvement targets for executive review.
    7. Implement cybersecurity program improvements.
    8. Monitor progress of cybersecurity program improvements.

We apply this framework when conducting security assessments against the enterprise to implement solutions that best protect multiple assets as opposed to developing one-off solutions that fail to address the overall security posture within the enterprise framework.  This cost savings approach provides streamlined security solutions that help the customer achieve compliance and efficiency when protecting their enterprise systems.
