Preparedness
Assessing your organization's structure

Is your organization prepared for a successful recovery after a cyber attack or data breach occurs? If the answer is anything but a confident and resounding yes, you will likely benefit from Vancord’s Incident Ready Assessment.

First Steps
Getting to know you

The first step to improving an organization’s security is gaining a true understanding of what’s happening behind the curtain; more specifically by examining its cybersecurity maturity level and risk exposure. Vancord’s Incident Ready Assessment does exactly this.

Delivery & Recommendations
Providing cutting edge recommendations

Designed to proactively assess a security program, the Incident Ready Assessment utilizes knowledge gained during this inside glimpse into the program to provide remediation recommendations, and ultimately enable a rapid response when unexpected cybersecurity incidents occur.

Knowledge is Power.

Most cyber attacks occur due to gaps in an organization’s security preparedness or lapses in foundational defenses put in place. Vancord believes that taking action against identified gaps is the most effective way to prepare for and prevent incidents.

Key Activities of the Incident Ready Assessment

Program Maturity Assessment

Conducted interview-style with IT leadership and key technical experts, the assessment is intended to efficiently evaluate the most critical components of a security program and provide tangible recommendations for improvement.

Dark Web Scan and Review

Complementary to the assessment, Vancord will also collect and review dark web data to help identify any potentially sensitive information that may have been leaked. This information will be used to actively protect accounts from misuse and reduce reputational impact caused by identity theft.

Vulnerability Scan and Review

A vulnerability scan will be conducted to identify any common misconfigurations, software vulnerabilities and gaps within the IT infrastructure - which are often exploited by hackers to execute attacks. Vancord will provide a report outlining the misconfigurations and overlooked security settings in the IT infrastructures.

The End Game

Vancord’s Incident Ready Assessment guides you in prioritizing improvements necessary to reduce the potential negative impacts of an attack. Prepare your organization for the future now, and put the fear of business disruptions, data loss, legal action, and financial hardship in the rearview mirror.
