“Sygnia cuts through complexity to provide a prioritized, clear and strategic cyber roadmap for leadership”
Sygnia’s extensive experience helping clients contain and remediate severe security breaches and improve their defenses, has shown that organizations can achieve significant, quick-win improvements to security posture, maximize the ROI of their existing security investment and simultaneously accelerate achievement of their longer-term strategic security objectives.
Sygnia’s posture enhancement service provides clients with a comprehensive understanding of their cyber resilience, and a detailed path forward to vastly reduce cyber risk.
A Fast Path To Knowing Your Organization’s True Cyber Posture
Sygnia’s posture enhancement service is designed to provide significant impact in just a few weeks, driven by an efficient, 3-step process.
Step One: Discovery
Step one starts with a review of both business and IT systems. The organization’s business context, organizational structure, critical assets and processes are understood. The technology environment is reviewed, including IT systems, network architecture, and the security stack.
Hands-on adversary simulations are then applied to the network, replicating threat-actor tactics, techniques, and procedures. Embedded in Sygnia’s adversary simulations are the latest insights into threat-actor tactics from Sygnia’s Threat Research Group and Sygnia’s incident response teams. Security system misconfigurations, design flaws, and exploitable vulnerabilities are identified.
Step Two: Analysis
Step two is an analysis of the organization’s capabilities in comparison to Sygnia’s best-practices. We cherry-picked the best-practices in the industry from international standards such as NIST and ISO, and fused them with our extensive front-line experience. To assess the organization’s true capabilities, Sygnia develops high-impact attack scenarios that stress-test the ways adversaries could materialize their goals against the organization. We identify if and how the organization would prevent, detect, respond and recover from each scenario. The results are used to form an accurate and detailed picture of organization’s current security posture, including security gaps, strengths, and opportunities for improvement.
Step Three: Strategic and Tactical Recommendations
In step three, Sygnia develops and consolidated and actionable insights and initiatives prioritized by impact and ease of implementation. Sygnia identifies not only security gaps but also the specific steps an organization needs to take to address them at both strategic and technical levels.
For executives, Sygnia provides a strategic overview that includes the organization’s current strengths and opportunities to bolster defenses, key strategic insights, and a roadmap with a recommended plan of action.
For security teams, Sygnia provides a detailed, visual gap analysis that illustrates the organization’s current cyber strengths, weaknesses, and areas for improvement. Detailed, prioritized initiatives are provided with the level of granularity required to ensure successful implementation. All cybersecurity domains are addressed including detection and response, identity and access management, data protection, application security, security governance, network security, and IT infrastructure.
Sygnia’s recommendations are pragmatic, actionable, and impact-driven. Sygnia’s approach is to always look first for ways to optimize the client’s existing security stack. Where additional investment is required, it can be justified with a detailed roadmap that is designed to facilitate an executive-level understanding of the security challenges the organization faces.
The Time For Action Is Now
Cyber defenses are often far more permeable than assumed, but the asymmetry between attackers and defenders can be reversed. Organizations should start with a posture assessment to get full visibility into their organization’s current resilience to cyber attacks. Cyber security strengths will be identified, and exploitable gaps will be revealed. Critical gaps will be closed immediately, before they are exploited by an attacker. The organization can then move forward to implement a strategic posture enhancement roadmap and achieve dramatic improvements in cyber resilience.
