From Analysis to Action: Our Comprehensive Approach to Cybersecurity Data Protection


Discovery and Planning

Our team of experts will work closely with you to create an engagement plan, collect the necessary documentation, identify key personnel, and access relevant technologies.

We strive to gain a deeper insight into the processes, business goals, and data lifecycles that drive your business. 


Process and Technical Review

Our team of experts will review all of your collected documentation and conduct targeted interviews to assess your current compliance and regulatory requirements.

We'll also examine any additional security measures you've put in place to ensure your business is protected against potential threats.


Data Flow Mapping Exercise

Our team will work with yours to identify the flow of data within your environment, from creation to deletion, in order to better understand how data is processed, used, and protected.

We will also discuss the security controls you may already have in place to protect data during its lifecycle, identify potential gaps in the current data protection strategy, and make improvements to minimize data exposure to cyber threats.


Cybersecurity Data Protection Maturity Analysis

Our team will analyze the collated data against applicable industry standards, key frameworks, and relevant regulations. 

We will then discuss your organizational goals and data obligations to determine the desired maturity baselines for each security control.  


Delivery and Knowledge Transfer

Our team will document and deliver a comprehensive Cybersecurity Data Protection Initiative (CDPI) customized to your organization's needs.

Based on the baselines established in our previous phase, we'll provide you with detailed documentation outlining and prioritizing the processes, technologies, and timelines necessary to meet your data protection objectives.
