HOW DO I KNOW IF I NEED TO BE COMPLIANT WITH A STANDARD?As cybersecurity experts, we are tasked with protecting the "CIA Triad": Confidentiality, Integrity, and Availability. All Federal Agencies must be in compliance with applicable cybersecurity standards which vary based on the sensitivity, the criticality, and the location of data being stored, transmitted, or processed. Some industries require vendors, suppliers, contractors, and/or customers in the private sector to be compliant with cybersecurity federal standards. Typically, these entities would find those requirements in the MOU, SLA, or contract. Due to the initiatives from the White House, KSE suggests all private companies should adhere to a standard such as NIST SP 800-171 Rev. 2. Establishing a governance and compliance program now will not only protect your clients and environment from vicious threat actors, but may prepare them for any industry changes that will require compliance in the near future. For example, Defense Industrial Base companies must adhere to DFARS, but soon all suppliers will have to adhere to CMMC. In the energy sector, there is no requirement for cybersecurity compliance at this time, but it will be required within the next five years. To understand your company's compliance needs, contact us and we can help you determine the right fit based on your company's vision and help establish an efficient compliance program.
HOW DO I PROTECT MY ENVIRONMENT FROM RANSOMWARE, MALWARE, AND INSIDER THREAT?Every company and agency must understand information security risks. If your operation is or plans on handling sensitive data such as payment information, addresses, etc., you must know that eventually you will come across phishing, data exfiltration, spoofing, or some interruption in your operations. A security operations center (SOC) utilizes people, processes, and technology to constantly monitor your environment 24/7/365 and ensure vulnerabilities are remediated, threats are identified, and incidents are responded to as quickly and efficiently as possible. The cost benefit of having a SOC makes sense for many medium to large enterprises due to the complexity of the environment. For small companies, KSE provides technology that can provide SOC level analysis for your internal team to address for a fraction of the cost. To understand your company's SOC needs, contact us and we can help you determine the right fit based on your company's offerings and size.
