Cyber Security & Compliance Professional Services
Expert threat protection for added assurance and peace of mind
Together, information security and compliance are fundamental to business success. It’s about managing cyber risk and protecting the confidentiality, availability and integrity of data using advanced technology, encryption, process and vigilance.
While each plays a different role, security and compliance go hand-in-hand. Managing security well is necessary to ensure compliance. The ability to achieve compliance helps validate your security policies and procedures. Compliance demonstrates how your security threat detection program meets specific industry standards and regulatory mandates.
Assessing the effectiveness of your organization’s security defense framework is a best practice – and an annual requirement for most compliance standards. But different organizations have different individual and industry-specific needs – one size does not fit all.
That’s why Flexential certified security experts work across all industries, helping companies like yours improve their security intelligence, controls and processes, avoid incidents, minimize damage and quickly restore operations when an attack or threat occurs. Our IT security and compliance solutions and software help you achieve and maintain compliance with industry and regulatory standards including HIPAA, HITRUST, PCI DSS, NIST, NERC CIP and more.

Vulnerability and Risk Assessment
Understand your security gaps and position your business to thrive
Each day brings new headlines about incidents of successful exploits against vulnerable IT systems. Cybercrime, fraud, DDoS, ransomware, hackers – the list goes on. Natural events like hurricanes and earthquakes take their toll as well. In this chaotic environment, no organization is safe and no system is 100% secure.
The vulnerability of a system or asset is related to its susceptibility to exploitation or damage. Managing IT risk means understanding vulnerabilities and potential hazards, and knowing what to do when disaster strikes.
Do you know what makes your company a target for attacks? Are you adequately prepared against natural disaster? What if your customer data becomes compromised? What happens if a security breach goes public? What will you do if you face the choice between forfeiting ransom and paying recovery costs?
Risk assessments are a crucial line of defense. Flexential security risk assessment and disaster recovery services can help you prevent attacks and exploits, and minimize the fallout if the worst should happen.
Our team of professionals helps organizations like yours plan, prepare and thrive. We work with you to build a thorough understanding of the environment and threat landscape and determine your current overall security posture based on industry best practices. The Flexential team can quickly assess the effectiveness of your policies and provide actionable strategies for mitigating weaknesses.
