The technology-enabled and technology-dependent organizations are more vulnerable to Information Security threats than ever before. The significant growth of various types of threats to these Information Systems has on numerous cases jeopardized the business of the organization by attacking the vulnerabilities. If the degree of security measures applied is less than the extent of security measures required considering the risks, potential threats and vulnerabilities then this leads to a “Gap” in protection. The Security Gap analysis process encompasses determining, documenting and attaining management’s recognition of the variance between the security levels’ requirement in the regulatory compliances, guidelines and/or best practices and the organization’s current level of controls and information security arrangements. Once the “gaps” are identified, a robust Security Improvement Plan is developed which will form the basis for setting priorities, setting ownership, allotting investments of time, money and human resources.
As a vital component of our Information Security Program, ‘Security Gap Analysis’ is intended to assist your enterprise in meeting compliance with the appropriate regulations, guidelines and/or best practices. We basically analyze the existing security controls and compare the same with the threshold level of security controls to determine the shortcomings. The resulting report summarizes your system’s current level of compliance and provides the insight for developing appropriate corrective measures.
