    Types of Assessments

    Vulnerability Assessment

    Vulnerbility Assessment

    GSI offers a comprehensive vulnerability assessment (internal and external) that systematically evaluates your organization's systems, networks, and applications to detect any potential security weaknesses. Through meticulous scanning and analysis, we identify known vulnerabilities, misconfigurations, or weak points that could be exploited by malicious agents. We'll also take a look at security protocols to ensure that they are well-implemented by your employees. The best processes can't work unless they are being followed, and we recognize the risks of staff not being well-versed in information security.

    Our assessment provides valuable insights into your organization's security posture, allowing you to prioritize vulnerabilities based on their level of risk and receive actionable recommendations for remediation. By proactively identifying and addressing vulnerabilities, you can significantly enhance your overall security, minimizing the risk of unauthorized access, data breaches, or disruptive service interruptions.

    Choose GSI for flexible, one-time, or ongoing security assessments that constantly improve your defenses. Collaborate with us to gain a thorough understanding of your information security, giving you the best chance of safeguarding your systems and valuable data.

    Our team is also here to assist with any necessary remediation efforts after you've reviewed your cyber security assessment. You can rely upon us for managed cybersecurity services, including a streamlined threat detection process and consultation on developing your company's security procedures. We can also provide end-user training to make sure that all of your staff understand cyber risks and are able to identify potential misuses. With GSI, you can be assured that all your cybersecurity needs are covered, enabling you to focus on satisfying your stakeholders.


    Readiness Assessment

    If you work with government agencies in regulated industries or store sensitive information, it's essential that your system be secure at all times to prevent serious consequences. Many of these organizations will conduct occasional audits on their partners to ensure that their processes and technologies are maintaining compliance with the information security standards they require. It's essential that you keep your internal network and all sensitive data secure, and ready at all times for a third-party assessment.

    When it comes to organizations striving for excellence in compliance, GSI stands as the trusted ally you can depend on. We specialize in conducting readiness assessments to ensure your organization is fully prepared for a thorough third-party audit. With our extensive expertise in frameworks and standards such as ISO 27001, NIST, PCI-DSS, SOX, HIPAA, and SOC 2, we can guide you through the complexities of compliance. In addition, GSI is always available to provide assistance with remediation efforts, helping you address any identified security gaps.

    During our readiness cybersecurity assessment, GSI conducts a comprehensive evaluation of your organization's readiness and capabilities to navigate the ever-evolving landscape of cybersecurity risks. We delve deep into your policies, security controls, risk management framework, incident response capabilities, and compliance with regulations.

    One of the best benefits of this meticulous assessment is the detailed report that not only highlights potential areas for improvement but also provides insightful recommendations to enhance your cybersecurity readiness. Our ultimate objective is to identify weaknesses, proactively mitigate security gaps, and establish a solid foundation for implementing effective cybersecurity practices.

    Should you choose to work with us following your assessment, our team will assist in ensuring the highest level of security for your systems so as to keep you in compliance with industry regulations and best practices.


    Risk Assessment

     As new technologies emerge and industries change, so too does the risk your business faces during the course of ordinary business operations. It's essential to perform regular risk assessments so that you can stay one step ahead of malicious actors who may wish to sabotage your network infrastructure or obtain sensitive information like bank account details, Social Security numbers, and addresses.

    GSI's comprehensive risk assessments include a systematic evaluation of the potential risks and threats that your organization may face. Our assessment team is well-versed in the contemporary cybersecurity space, studying the changing threats throughout the information technology industry to ensure that our clients have a study security posture that can weather any storm.

    Our risk assessment process involves identifying and analyzing emerging threats, assessing their likelihood and potential impact, and prioritizing them based on their significance. By doing so, we enable organizations to make informed decisions regarding risk management strategies and allocate resources effectively to mitigate or address these issues.

    Regular risk assessments significantly enhance an organization's ability to identify, understand, and effectively manage risks, providing a solid foundation for maintaining a secure environment.

    If you're satisfied with our cybersecurity risk assessment services, we encourage you to reach out to one of our team members regarding the benefits of a long-term partnership with GSI, where you'll enjoy ongoing support and routine risk assessments. We'll help you predict and respond to potential dangers with event management and incident response, allowing your systems to stay agile and active at all times. You can expect prompt responses and clear explanations, as well as fast intervention to contain the issue as much as possible.


    Microsoft 365 Security Assessment


    Microsoft 365 itself has robust security controls, but not every organization knows how to implement them in order to prevent data breaches or other dangers. As part of our cybersecurity assessment services, we enable organizations to maintain the high productivity provided by Microsoft 365 while still keeping their information assets secure.

    This security assessment is designed to thoroughly evaluate the security of your organization's Microsoft 365 configuration, ensuring that it aligns with industry best practices and highlighting areas for improvement. Our team of experts will analyze the utilization and setup of native security capabilities and services, including Defender, Entra, and Purview, to identify any potential vulnerabilities or weaknesses in your Microsoft 365 environment.

    In addition, we will examine the security settings for essential Microsoft 365 productivity tools (i.e., Teams, SharePoint, etc.) to ensure that they are properly configured to protect your organization's sensitive data and communications. This includes assessing access controls, permissions, and encryption settings to ensure only authorized individuals can interact with your Microsoft 365 resources.

    Furthermore, our assessment will evaluate the monitoring and alerting capabilities and processes for Microsoft 365. We will review your existing systems and procedures for detecting and responding to potential security incidents, providing recommendations to enhance your incident response capabilities. This includes assessing the effectiveness of your logging and auditing practices, as well as the integration of security event monitoring tools.

    By conducting this in-depth assessment, we aim to provide you with a comprehensive understanding of the security posture of your Microsoft 365 environment. Our detailed report will not only identify any existing vulnerabilities or weaknesses but also provide actionable recommendations to strengthen your overall security. With our expertise and guidance through our security assessment, you can ensure that your organization's Microsoft 365 configuration is optimized to mitigate risks and effectively protect your valuable data and resources.


    Google Workspace Security Assessment

     Like Microsoft, Google utilizes high-level security to protect the data of businesses that rely on their products; however, there is risk in utilizing any system, particularly if your employees are not fully advised on how to protect data while using these tools.

    As part of this cyber security assessment, GSI will conduct a Google Workspace security assessment to evaluate your organization's Google Workspace configuration in alignment with industry-leading security practices and uncover areas for enhancement. Our services encompass various initiatives, including evaluating the utilization and setup of native security capabilities and services within Google Workspace.

    We will also review the security settings for essential productivity tools like Gmail and Drive, ensuring they are appropriately configured to safeguard your organization's sensitive data and communications. Furthermore, our assessment will assess the monitoring and alerting capabilities and processes for Google Workspace. Once we're done, we'll provide you with an actionable plan that prioritizes identified security assessment findings and includes recommendations for remediation.


    Third-Party Risk Assessment

    Your information security doesn't just rely upon your own security plan, but that of every network that your organization links to. It takes just one data breach from one vendor, partner, or supplier to put all of your data at risk. As such, it's critical that you identify any flaws in the security of other companies that utilize your network in any capacity - something that many security assessment services fail to prioritize.

    As part of our cyber security assessment services, we will analyze the security stance of external vendors, partners, and suppliers who may utilize your organization's systems, networks, and data. By doing so, we can ensure they adhere to the necessary security standards and do not pose any substantial threats to the organization.

    Should we find problems with their procedures during our cyber security assessment, we can provide risk management support, including improving your firewalls or restricting access to only the most essential components of your company network.

    Our cyber security assessment services are just the beginning: we can provide full-service cyber protection, constantly monitoring the security stance of your vendors to prevent any undue risk. You'll be the first to know should something happen with a third party that places your own systems in danger, which ensures that you can act quickly and prevent intrusions.
