Information Risk Assessments

The risk assessment process is one of the most important processes to help an organization manage risk to its information.  Risk assessments ensure the most cost effective controls is applied to help a company manage risks. 

Our risk assessment services focus on information, rather than technology.  We want to ensure companies who we partner with, understand risks and how they relate to their business. 

Cyber Protection Services provides risk assessment services utilizing organized and efficient processes.  Our risk assessment process is closely aligned with NIST 800-30 (Risk Management Guide for Information Systems), NIST 800-60 (Mapping Information and Information Systems to Security Categories) and FIPS 199 and standards.

PCI Gap Analysis

If you are a merchant of any size, you are mandated to be PCI compliant.  the size of your business will determine the specific compliance requirements that must be met. Note that enforcement of merchant compliance is managed by the individual payment brands and not by the Council – the same is true for non-compliance penalties.

Web Application Penetration Testing

Our Web Application Security Assessment reviews and evaluates the level of risk associated with an application in terms of its web vulnerabilities and the potential disclosure of sensitive information.

The primary goals of this assessment are to:

  1.   Provide a prioritized list of vulnerabilities found with associated risks.

  2.   Provide recommendations and details to facilitate a cost-effective and targeted mitigation approach.

  3.   Create a basis for future decisions regarding information security strategy and resource allocation.


This assessment methodology includes coverage of the classes of vulnerabilities identified in the 2010 Top 10 Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP):

  1. 1.Injection

  2. 2.Cross-Site Scripting (XSS)

  3. 3.Broken Authentication and Session Management

  4. 4.Insecure Direct Object Reference

  5. 5.Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF)

  6. 6.Security Misconfiguration

  7. 7.Insecure Cryptographic Storage

  8. 8.Failure to Restrict URL Access

  9. 9.Insufficient Transport Layer Protection

  10. 10.Unvalidated Redirects and Forwards

Because vulnerabilities can mask or even enable other vulnerabilities, we comprehensively test the entire application, often requiring credentials to various roles within the application.

Our application assessments also address specific regulatory requirements, such as FFIEC/GLBA, HIPAA/HITECH, and PCI DSS requirements 6.6 and 11.3.2.
