As business dependence on technology grows, the risks and threats associated with cybersecurity increase. In response, regulatory requirements, industry standards, and insurance considerations are increasing to meet this challenge; but they can be confusing or even contradictory to an organization trying to increase its cybersecurity posture.
To address evolving cybersecurity challenges, it is critical that businesses have a methodical approach. NCG works with organizations to enhance their cybersecurity programs to meet their specific needs. Cybersecurity threats take on physical, technical, and people based approaches. Thus, it is critical that these programs cover all these aspects for the entire enterprise.
NCG designs programs and outlines daily steps for businesses to ensure the integrity of critical assets. NCG consultants have decades of experience building cybersecurity programs and assessing them across industries and the Federal government. With this experience and capabilities, NCG can quickly understand your business needs and design tailored cybersecurity solutions that encompass all aspects of security, development life cycles, management, and governance practices. NCG enables cybersecurity programs to deal with insider threats as well as with key third parties that handle sensitive data.
NCG cybersecurity assessments begin with an individualized IT discovery process that identifies the scope of the current technology infrastructure, data, connected third parties, controls, policies and procedures, and resources. After the scope is defined, NCG identifies security risks that require immediate action as well as mid- and long-term goals so that businesses have a sustainable cybersecurity framework. NCG uses multiple compliance and conformance frameworks based on the industry and operations of the organization such as NIST, FISMA, SCADA, NRC, FISMA, PCI, HIPAA, and NERC CIP.
NCG Penetration Testing (PenTest) and Social Engineering testing provide an additional level of insight into your organizational cybersecurity posture. These tests and assessments provide insight and details for steps and actions that can help thwart or mitigate the impact of threats to the enterprise.
Cybersecurity needs to be comprehensive and cover the entire organization. The old adage that says a chain is only as strong as its weakest link holds true for cybersecurity. Gaps in your capabilities can and will be exploited.
NCG helps organizations expand cybersecurity capabilities across the enterprise and integrate efforts with other risk and control frameworks. NCG works with all parts of the organization to work through complexity and disconnects and provide steps that can be taken on a daily basis and longer term initiatives to implement the tools and procedures to improve the overall enterprise security posture.

More than policies and procedures, security must become intuitive at every level of the organization. Security needs to be a primary part of the corporate culture just like quality, safety, and innovation.
Borne out of awareness and training, everyone needs to understand the risks and what actions to take in today’s environment. Executive and management leadership plays a significant role in the tenor and attitudes of the organization. Security considerations need to become the way of doing things—second nature type of activities.
The backbone of the cyber infrastructure, networks, systems, hardware and software and how it operates is foundational to your cyber security posture. Robust infrastructure and processes to manage its currency and updates as needed are primary elements to maintaining confidentiality, integrity, and availability of your information resources.
Navigating multiple regulatory frameworks and ensuring adequate protection and provisions in agreements with key third parties requires a blend of technical and subject matter expertise. NCG helps organizations craft the requisite technical and operational constructs to ensure compliance and conformance to regulatory and industry requirements. NCG helps organizations develop supporting policies and procedures to implement and guide efforts across the enterprise. With tools to oversee and demonstrate compliance, NCG helps organizations manage requirements efficiently and to the benefit of operations.
Preparedness is an ongoing process that spans operations and new solutions to make sure the organization can manage and adapt to unplanned occurrences. The organization needs to not only have back-ups, but the process and ability to operate under challenging circumstances and transition back to normal operations. Being able to deal with an event can make the difference between surviving and ceasing operations.
Most organizations have a complex set of dependencies on key third parties and supply chains. Threats and vulnerabilities of these relationships must be understood and managed on a day-to-day basis or daily basis. These relationships are part of the overall security and preparedness environment.
