Watsec Cyber Risk Management

Watsec's fresh approach to addressing cyber risk is transforming the traditional hit-and-miss vulnerability assessment into a complete, affordable, and ongoing cyber risk management program suitable for any organization.

Watsec's TUF Program offers a practical approach for significantly reducing the risk of losing control over information under the organization's custody. This is accomplished through workforce security awareness programs, the systematic highlighting of critical security exposures, and completion of a gap analysis of the current security policy and related controls versus industry standards such as ISO 27001 or Security Trustmark.

As a result employees are well versed in the why and the how for effective protection of corporate assets, there are significantly fewer security exposures, and more comprehensive insurance liability protection becomes available at lower cost.
