“At the same time, surveys conducted among company managers show that they assess the state of their companies’ information systems to be fine. It is often not realised, however, that to assess the security of an information system, it is necessary to perform IT audits and penetration tests. Moreover, outsourcing IT services management to third parties and placing a large part of the infrastructure in a cloud does not mean that the service owner does not have to think about the security of their service. Our experience shows that the security level is often not what a client who uses contractors expects. The ultimate responsibility for the security of the service remains with the service owner,” Igmar Ilves, a cyber security expert at KPMG Baltics, says. Studies carried out globally also show that until now, most organisations have underinvested in IT security, which creates a fertile ground for cybercriminals’ activities and makes corporate information systems easy to attack.
To prevent and minimise such situations, we have developed a cyber maturity assessment (CMA) service, which offers great value to any company:
A CMA provides a comprehensive overview of an organisation’s capability to protect its information assets and respond to cyber threats; the assessment also focuses on people, technologies and processes.
CMA enables significantly better planning of IT investments and further steps to remedy the company’s vulnerabilities, ensure better security, and rule out unpleasant and unexpected surprises related to information security.
