Beyond Defense FAQs

A cybersecurity program transformation involves a comprehensive overhaul of your current cybersecurity practices. It’s about elevating your cybersecurity measures from merely reactive to strategic and proactive, ensuring they align with your business objectives, reducing risks, and driving growth.

The NIST Cybersecurity Framework (CSF) is the backbone of our cybersecurity solution. We leverage its principles and guidelines, incorporating its five core functions—Identify, Protect, Detect, Respond, and Recover—into the design and implementation of your cybersecurity program.

During the implementation phase, there may be some disruptions to your operations. However, we aim to minimize this impact and will work closely with you to ensure a smooth transition. In the long run, this transformation will streamline operations by reducing cybersecurity risks and promoting a more secure operational environment.

The timeline for a cybersecurity program transformation varies depending on the complexity of your existing systems and specific business needs. A comprehensive timeline will be provided after the initial assessment phase.

Our program will identify, categorize, and prioritize your high-value assets. We will then tailor the most robust protection strategies to these assets, deploying advanced tools and techniques to ensure their safety.

Our program will identify, categorize, and prioritize your high-value assets. We will then tailor the most robust protection strategies to these assets, deploying advanced tools and techniques to ensure their safety.

Our program is designed with a keen understanding of various regulatory requirements. It incorporates compliance into the cybersecurity strategy, ensuring your practices meet or exceed regulatory standards.

We will define key performance indicators (KPIs) and metrics that align with your business goals. These may include the number of incidents detected and responded to promptly, reduction in risk exposure, increased stakeholder confidence, and improved compliance scores.

The resources required will depend on the current state of your cybersecurity measures and your specific business objectives. These may include human resources for program implementation and management, technological resources for cybersecurity measures, and financial resources for investment in necessary tools and services.

Your team’s involvement is crucial to the success of the transformation. They will need to participate in identifying key assets, defining business goals related to cybersecurity, and implementing and managing the new program. We also provide training and support to ensure seamless integration.
