Security Self-Assessment

Please select the response that best represents your company or organization for each risk factor.

Do you have a written Information Security Policy that is endorsed and supported by top management?
How often are employees and management given Security Awareness Training (SAT)?
Do you have a documented Data Inventory - a list of key data stores, where they are located, and how they are protected?
Is there a convenient list of Security Best Practices that all computer users are familiar with?
Is critical data backed up automatically every day, onto separate computers used for this purpose?
Does your company have remote or traveling employees who need network access?
Have you had a network vulnerability scan or professional security assessment from a third party consultant or advisor?
Does your company or organization have a public-facing web site?
Are you covered by a Data Defender subscription to insure best practices and basic documentation?

What The Big Security Companies Don't Tell You

Nobody Really Cares. This is a blunt statement but it reflects the low priority that C-level management gives to information security at most companies. Immediately following a data breach, the level of attention and expenditures often increases.
Nobody Understands. With few exceptions, staff and management have very little idea what the job of the security team entails. Even the role of the CISO is misunderstood, as most regard data security as strictly an IT responsibility.
Fear Drives Cybersecurity. Big money is being spent on high-profile security services, while cost-effective measures are avaialble which won't disrupt your daily operations. There really is a better way. Reduce your budget, simplify your data security, and manage everything in one place.
