With our insider's view of today's largest cyber hazards, you can analyze the security of your data systems and procedures in advance. We've worked on threat intelligence in businesses and law enforcement organizations, and we've led multinational teams through crises and investigations. We take what we've learned from working on hundreds of cyber events each year and apply it to a more sophisticated understanding of where security vulnerabilities may exist and how to prioritize changes. Mindfire Cybersecurity advisers provide objective, technology-agnostic assessments.

Your information is part of a complex ecosystem that includes technology, software, business processes, and human contact. Mindfire is continually in flux since all four elements are constantly changing.

We customize our assessments for the complexity of your business operations, including any applicable regulatory or industry-specific standards (NIST, MITRE, HIPAA, NY-DFS, PCI, GDPR, etc.). Mindfire Cybersecurity is also technology agnostic, which reflects our longstanding reputation as a trusted impartial advisor, investigator, and factfinder. Mindfire Cybersecurity’s system assessments provide pragmatic insights for proactive or remedial strategies—from a regular component in your defensible cyber security program to acquisition due diligence, or when recovering from an incident and the need to harden security is greater than ever.

Robust Cyber Risk Preparedness Assessments and Testing

We have the business acumen, human insight and technical expertise and resources to review your organization’s information security program end-to-end, from policies and procedures to human factor influences and technical controls for every data touchpoint in your organization. Below are a few of our cyber security assessment and testing solutions:

Email and Cloud Security Assessments

From our global casework, we know that cloud implementations have proved to be an Achilles’ heel in many cyber security programs. Mindfire Cybersecurity’s cloud security assessments will evaluate technical security controls in place, such as firewalls, intrusion detection solutions, antivirus software and log management. We also examine security management processes such as policy development and adherence, analytics on collected security data and data classification programs.

Ransomware Preparedness

From our vast experience with ransomware investigations, Mindfire Cybersecurity has distilled 14 crucial security areas and ransomware attack vectors that organizations should examine to identify where their defenses are strong and where vulnerabilities exist. Regulatory and Standards-Based Assessments. Merging legal and technical expertise, Mindfire Cybersecurity evaluates and maps existing controls to a wide range of regulatory frameworks, such as HIPAA, GDPR, CCPA, PIPEDA, NY DFS, CMMC, NY SHIELD and industry standards such as ISO 27001, NIST 800-53 and CIS Top 20.

Web Application Security Assessments

In addition to examining web applications for inherent security flaws and vulnerabilities, Mindfire Cybersecurity can also identify if any developers, internal or third-party, have inadvertently left critical code exposed on cloud-based repositories like GitHub, Bit bucket and Gitlab.
