What to Expect

The work begins with a Cybersecurity Gap Assessment against one or more established information security frameworks. The assessment is divided into two main components:

  • Security Strategy. TPx will assess the security policies, standards, and procedures as well as the security management processes and roles and responsibilities related to your information security.
  • Operational Security. By gathering data directly from your network and end devices, TPx assesses the technical security measures implemented within your environment. Your information security posture is assessed based on a set of categorizations (e.g., access controls and network protections). The categorizations covered during the Gap Assessment focus on areas of cybersecurity that have the highest likelihood of incidents and breaches for your organization.

The objective of the Gap Assessment is to establish a baseline record of the security maturity of your organization and to prioritize security risks for your leadership team. The areas of focus can range from information security governance to cybersecurity infrastructure and capabilities.

Following the Gap Assessment, TPx is continually monitoring the applicable regulatory framework, and as your virtual compliance officer, TPx will keep the compliance program and your organization updated with any changes.

Additionally, TPx will proactively perform a quarterly compliance review with you, reviewing your compliance landscape, ensuring the dashboard is current with all policies and supportive material, reviewing the operational efforts required by some compliance regulations, and reviewing reporting with the company. During the quarterly compliance review, TPx will make recommendations and provide additional requirements to ensure your company’s defensibility is current. With TPx, you have an always-available repository to assist in defensibility to compliance, including reporting, scorecards, supporting materials, policies, and tools.

On average, SMB owners spend, $12,000 annually and more than 20 hours per month of their own time trying to comply with federal, state and local regulations.
