Cybersecurity Assurance & Advisory Capabilities

Companies today face an ever-increasing and sophisticated sets of Cybersecurity risks from external and internal individuals. Freed Maxick has the experience and knowledge to help you stay ahead of these risks. Our Cybersecurity services enable you to make critical decisions, prioritize your resources, and mature your Cybersecurity program over time. Some of the Cybersecurity services we offer include:

Identity Management, access controls, and authentication services

Authorization, access and accountability are the cornerstone of all cybersecurity programs. The Freed Maxick Cybersecurity & IT Services Team can assess your current program, develop cost effective options and approaches, and assist your team with solutions.

Cybersecurity program assessment & development

Regardless of how mature your existing Cybersecurity Program is, our Cybersecurity & IT Services Team can provide you with “right-sized” solutions and create an achievable long term strategy to improve the Cybersecurity posture of your organization.

NIST program assessment & development

The alignment of your organization’s security and control structures against a recognized framework, such as NIST, is a key step in process maturity and diligence. Freed Maxick’s consultant team is experienced in framework assessment, alignment and control improvement.

NYS DFS 23 NYCRR 500 program assessment & development

The latest regulation from the New York State Department of Financial Services requires any of its participating financial institutions to improve and report on their Cybersecurity posture. The Freed Maxick Cybersecurity & IT Services Team has been assessing and providing guidance since the onset of this regulation; and we can provide an attainable Cybersecurity strategy roadmap for your organization.

Security training & awareness process assessment

People represent the greatest internal weakness any organization has. The security training your organization provides to your employees represents the first line of defense through heightened awareness. Our team can assess your current state and develop a solution that fits you organization and its culture. Freed Maxick can provide the Cybersecurity training and reporting required to reach all of your employees.

Social engineering

Any training & awareness program needs to show meaningful results. The best metrics come from an assessment of your employees’ behaviors and actions in a real world scenario. Freed Maxick can work with your Management and IT teams to set up a series of tests to measure how aware your employees are regarding ongoing Cybersecurity threats. We will provide easy metrics for targeted improvement as well.

Vulnerability assessments

Freed Maxick can measure the risk of unauthorized access to your systems and will illustrate the areas that need improvement. Our team provides a prioritized approach to resolving any identified areas. Knowing where your Cybersecurity opportunities for improvement truly exist is necessary for effective and decisive management.

Penetration testing

The Freed Maxick Cybersecurity & IT Services Team can apply the same techniques a criminal or hacker might use to attack your network. We will partner with your internal teams to provide a safe and non-intrusive set of tests that effectively measure the overall Cybersecurity posture within your IT environment. Our team provides easy to understand metrics and recommendations for improving your people, processes and technology.

Application security & secure software development assessments

The skilled Cybersecurity & IT Services Team will help to identify weaknesses in your applications and websites that can be used by an attacker to steal your sensitive information and damage your reputation. The early identification of Cybersecurity gaps in your existing Software Development Lifecycle, coupled with reviewing any existing applications and websites in production provides a well-rounded approach to managing you internally developed applications and websites.

Threat intelligence

Knowing is half the battle in the Cybersecurity world. The collection and evaluation of Cybersecurity data reduces the uncertainty in your organizations’ defensive approach. At Freed Maxick we will assist your team with the collection of interpretation of data to provide you with the appropriate recommendations for your Cybersecurity program.

Secure operational assessments 

The Freed Maxick Cybersecurity & IT Services Team can review any of your organizations’ Cybersecurity processes and provide you with the trusted guidance necessary to improve your processes. Our team stands ready to be your trusted partner.
