At Ward IT Security Consulting Group, we bring decades of experience and knowledge to each control analysis assessment. Our security analysts represent a full range spectrum in subject matter expertise on management, technical and operational controls.
Our initial consultation focus is to establish a solid understanding of your business operations in order to determine a security control baseline for your information and IT systems.
Efficient, Focused Control Analysis
Ward IT Security Consulting Group’s methodology ensures that all of your IT system control capabilities are efficiently and objectively evaluated.
Our Report of Findings provides a detailed assessment on the performance of existing, missing or incomplete controls. All findings are supported with the objective evidence utilized to verify the control capabilities.
Vulnerabilities are assigned threat levels to facilitate remediation prioritization in your enterprise based on risk.
Our clients receive a database detailing the status of each individual control evaluated. This tool enables our clients to track, update and maintain their controls, fulfill audit requests and save on future assessments.
