September 3, 2015

New offerings help Corporate Boards, Management and Operations Teams Identify, Protect, Detect, and Respond to Cyber Risk

Louisville, Colo. – September 3, 2015 – Coalfire, a leader in cybersecurity risk management and compliance services, today announced the expansion of its Cyber Risk Advisory services. These expanded services are designed to assist organizations as they guard against data breaches and improve their governance programs. Coalfire’s Cyber Risk Advisory services are holistically integrated with Coalfire’s compliance assessments, technical testing and monitoring and reporting services that provide an unbiased perspective into the overall health and vulnerability of an organization’s IT systems.

“As cybersecurity has become the top-of-mind concern for boardrooms and executive suites around the world, so has the challenge to develop tactics to meet current and emerging threats to protect corporate assets,” said Larry Jones, chairman and CEO of Coalfire. “There are a lot of investments being made in security technology at the tactical level, but little strategic work is being done to reduce overall cyber risk.”

Coalfire’s new suite of cyber risk services are aimed at the executive suite and board of directors to provide an industry-specific focus on the types of cyber threats inherent to their business, identifying and protecting the organizations most sensitive data and measuring and testing the effectiveness of such investments.

Coalfire’s expanded Cyber Risk Advisory services includes:

  • Cyber Risk Advisory – Identify and understand the risks inherent to the individual business
  • Cybersecurity Strategy – Build the organization, policies and technology to protect valuable corporate data
  • Incident Response – Contain and recover from cyberattacks quickly and efficiently
  • Cyber Risk Scorecard – Define ongoing metrics and review of effectiveness of security policies, procedures and investments

“Organizations need a trusted advisor that can develop informed tactics for current threats and those in the near term,” said Jones. “Coalfire helps organizations clearly understand their critical assets, vulnerabilities and where to deploy IT resources to minimize their cyber risk. We move beyond providing raw information and help the executive suite and corporate leaders understand what threats they should anticipate and how to build a customized intelligence program that will protect their brand and their bottom line.”

More than 1,500 enterprises and governments worldwide rely on Coalfire’s expertise to protect their businesses from security breaches and data theft while complying with global financial, government, industry and legal mandates.
