Information Security Strategy
While exciting, business growth presents its own set of challenges. Caliber Security provides a variety of services to help organizations transition past their barriers to growth. We can help you build security plans, prepare for audits, meet compliance requirements, or even find industry experts to join your internal team.
Strategy and Governance
Policy, Compliance, and Business Enablers
Your organization just got a new opportunity and, in order to move forward, you need to have security measures, policies, and compliance in place to safeguard data. If you’re doing business with large enterprises, compliance with standards like NIST, HIPAA, ISO, and FEDRAMP are a must have, and sometimes even contractually required. Let us help you create a detailed information security plan that will put you in compliance with the frameworks that will make you a viable business partner for many organizations.
When we start your project, we go in and look at your existing policies, compliance requirements, procedures, and technology. We get to know your company to gain a better understanding of what is documented and what is automated in these areas. This allows us to build a plan inclusive of what you have already in place and map that with the new rules required.
Big, but Not Complicated
Building a policy and compliance plan can be a big project, and because of this it’s important that it’s managed properly. We approach these projects without adding too much complexity. By keeping a smaller, focused agile team has proven to be a better approach to deliver outstanding results. All too often we have seen other companies get too many people involved in this type of work which add communication challenges, and complicates the process. This leads to more hours required and project delays. At Caliber, we use agility to get it done the right way without complicating the process.
Staffing & Training
Subject Matter Expert (SME) & Staff Augmentation
Caliber’s SME and staff augmentation services provide short to long-term staffing to strengthen your team with information security expertise or specific, targeted skills. We can help meet your staffing needs if you don’t have the experience on your team to complete a deliverable, don’t have the manpower, the capacity, or just don’t have the budget for a full-time employee. We have extremely experienced people, with a very deep knowledge in a variety of information security areas.
Our junior staff can assist with day-to-day operational tasks to implement your information security program, while our senior staff provide leadership in the strategy, operations, and roadmap for your information security needs.
A Couple Days vs. a Couple Weeks
We’re not going to guarantee to our clients that we’re going to find somebody in 24 hours for them. But our response is typically a couple of days rather than the industry norm of a couple of weeks. It’s our wide network of connections in the industry and long-term relationships that speeds up the interview process, to find the right candidates for you, in a very short period of time. This is what makes us different from a lot of other staff augmentation options, most are too broad and too general, and don’t take the time to develop long term relationships with the staff. We can provide you with the subject matter expertise and talent that your organization needs, to get you up and running quickly and for as long as you need it.
Virtual CISO Services
As part of our staff augmentation services, we can provide you with a Virtual CISO and make a top-tier security analyst available to your organization for security expertise and guidance. A Virtual CISO has the specialized technical knowledge and corporate governance experience to help build a strong cyber security foundation, and also has the agility to prevent, detect, and mitigate evolving threats.
We have a strong network of Virtual CISO candidates you can choose from that have served a broad range of industries and who know the challenges that businesses like yours face. With their decades of experience, they can build information security programs that work with your business objectives, to show measurable improvements to your information security program.
Best of all we can leverage our wide network of connections to fill a Virtual CISO role in a very short period of time. We’ve got the network, we’ve got the relationships, and that’s why we can provide a seasoned professional within just a few days.
Data & Compliance
Audit Prep & Compliance Mapping
So you’ve got an auditor coming in a few weeks, have firm requirements, and need help so you don’t fail your audit. We can help with that. Our certified professionals can provide proof of compliance or prepare for audits and certifications such as HIPAA, ISO 27K, HITRUST, SOC 2, CMMC, etc…. Let our analysts walk you through the steps to provide an accurate assessment and validate that your organization is compliant.
Right on Time, the First Time
Are you just looking to get the audit done or are you looking to get the audit done right? When it comes to audit prep, not only does it have to be done on time, but more importantly it has to be done right. Our team will ensure your audit is done on time and correct the first time, so that we don’t have to come back and repeat the process again. It is important you work with someone that has a strong audit track record, like Caliber, so you don’t expose yourself to the potential costs and risks of repeat visits and additional audits.
Growth & Exits
Supply Chain & Process Standardization
When you have multiple suppliers dealing with and sharing secure data, there can be an issue of who’s in charge of the accounts. So the question becomes, how do you federate? How do you standardize processes to get everyone in the supply chain protected against vulnerabilities in the system? In cyber security, any one organization within the chain is only as strong as that of the weakest member. A determined attacker will likely identify the organization with the weakest information security within the supply chain, and use these vulnerabilities in their systems to gain access to other members. We can help your organization understand your information security risks, not only in your internal environment, but also for all the actors involved in the supply chain.
