Cybersecurity–Where
Do I Start?

You're busy. Budgets are tight. How can you effectively address cyber risk? Three steps deliver significant value for limited investments:

  1. Complete a comprehensive self- assessment. Tells you where you are, where you need to be and how to get there.
  2. Conduct cyber "triage." A threat-faithful penetration test identifies critical gaps in security and identifies high-risk data exposures.
  3. Stop the Bleeding. Prioritize results and address most significant vulnerabilities.

Dynetics uses the NIST Cybersecurity Framework to help you complete these three steps and begin controlling cyber risk. For information visit www.CyberRiskScope.com, and visit NTCA.org for Affinity Program discounts.
