Cyber Risk Management with Secuvant Cyber7™
Mapping business goals and objectives to cyber security risks and programs.
Most companies who want to address cyber security start with operational and tactical security controls. They purchase technology from their favorite vendor with the promise of risk reduction and getting their security strategy from a solution vendor. This will always yield a recommendation to purchase their tool to solve the problem. However, the best place to start is not with the tool, but with your business, mission, and goals. So, how can Secuvant help you with this?
At Secuvant, we have a step-by-step process for assessing cyber risk and implementing strategies to eliminate it with our cyber risk services and exclusive Secuvant Cyber7™ method. The first step in developing a proactive security posture for your organization is to perform a comprehensive security gap and risk assessment. A Secuvant security assessment gives you key insights into the overall resilience of your IT infrastructure, who has access, and its ability to protect your sensitive data. From there, we’ll help you make a comprehensive risk management plan using our unique cyberRPM™ software and process, that improves your organizational vigilance and position you for growth in a way that is responsible and secure.
All cybersecurity planning and goals need to be driven by business objectives. After all, Cyber Risk is Business Risk™. A cyber breach will impact a company in many ways from Human Resources to Sales and Finance. In addition, business objectives need to be prioritized in order to address them in the most efficient way possible. The Secuvant Cyber7™ method helps businesses prioritize business objectives so that the security strategy will align with these goals.
Cyber Risk is Business Risk™. Cyber security readiness can no longer be just a technology-based decision as a breach will impact all areas of a business. Customer trust is paramount in business and your brand represents that trust. If you experience a breach it will impact your customers, your reputation and revenue. Companies must align their priorities first so that risks can be mitigated based on the business needs, goals, growth, and impact.
Through the process of a cyber risk assessment of a company’s infrastructure and IT environment, Secuvant can determine a company’s current security maturity level, assess for best improvement, and create a plan. This step is implemented through information gathering, vulnerability scans, and on-site interviews.
The validation of a company’s cyber state, as achieved through the gap and risk assessment is then processed into Secuvant’s Maturity Score. This allows Secuvant to benchmark your current posture and measure consistently as we implement your new cyber security program.
Businesses need to prioritize risks that could impact operations, people, and processes including compliance requirements. Since resources are not unlimited costs need to be considered in relation to risk reduction. Risks will never be totally eliminated yet unlimited money can be spent that may not have direct risk impact. Secuvant finds the optimal level of spend vs. risk reduction for clients.
Once a company understands business risks related to security, finds the gaps and risks associated with the current maturity and sets a baseline it is time to execute on controls to reduce those risks. Secuvant helps provide a formal risk program using a proven methodology and Secuvant cyberRPM Web application to find business impact and address the probability of risk for both compliance and governance.
At this point, it is time to put the plan that has been crafted for a customer into action. The depth and magnitude of Secuvant’s programs exist specifically to fit each customer’s specific needs. As a part of Secuvant’s cyberMDR™ Managed Detection & Response service, controls and analytics are defined and set within each customer’s program. These controls and analytics make it possible to properly manage threat detection and provide accurate reporting content to the customer.
With exacting controls and analytics in place, the ideal program to align business needs has already been implemented and monitoring is in place – we work with each client to optimize their cyber security program and make it fully operational. This may include training and Services Delivery support, risk program executive alignment and ongoing adjustments to optimize controls.
Too many information security consultants fail to realize how a company’s business goals and cyber security are interconnected.
We believe, in order to justify the investment, security must support the processes that drive your business.
At Secuvant, each technology risk assessment is done by taking the time to understand the nature of your organization, what your priorities are, and where the risk lies in a broader sense. This provides you the best cyber risk strategy possible.
We ensure that any recommendations we make are firmly grounded in the big picture, rather than the insular world of cyber security. Basically, we make cyber risk management simple and efficient.

Cyber risk is business risk™ is not just a sales pitch, it’s our core methodology. The gap and risk assessment is the first critical step in this process. It looks at both the technology you have in place and your internal processes. Your company is first aligned with seven critical business risks, then all gaps and findings are mapped to those risks based on quantitative data we gather from you. The result is a security strategy you can execute on with real, tactical steps and recommendations.
Secuvant’s first step to creating a cyber security plan is understanding your company, goals, and operations. Every business has different security needs and different types of data to protect.
