- Brings controls into alignment with business objectives
- Reduces risk associated with assets
- Recognizes the level of risk to the organization
Our Security Risk Analysis walks organizations through a proven process and provides an actionable report that enables them to better align security with business goals.
The existing security program, including all controls and countermeasures, is reviewed and considered in relation to the organization’s specific needs, as well as industry best practices. Any gaps are identified, documented, and prioritized.
Our proven process leverages years of experience helping organizations develop successful risk management programs. This process is based on industry standards, including NIST and ISO, and is customized to meet each client’s unique needs. We identify vulnerabilities, threats, and the resulting risk to the client’s assets. Clients use the resulting report to improve performance, gain executive support, and better communicate the value of information security enterprise wide.
Security Gap Assessment
- Provides a comprehensive view of practices and procedures currently in place
- Delivers recommendations for addressing gaps in security controls
- Ensures a clear understanding of where gaps exist in information security controls, posture, and program.
Our Security Gap Assessment helps organizations identify areas that require remediation by understanding gaps in information security controls, processes, and procedures.
The findings are delivered in a detailed report that is compared to best practices in order to identify areas of increased risk.
Approximately twenty topics are covered during a typical K logix Security Gap Assessment. This list includes, but is not limited to: authentication and access control, backup and recovery, firewall rulebase, email, incident management, logging and alerting, patch management, policies and procedures, and vulnerability management.
The findings of the Gap Assessment are reviewed by an experienced K logix Security Consultant and delivered in a Security Gap Assessment Report. This report includes an executive summary, detailed findings, as well as recommendations for remediation and prioritization.
- Identify vulnerabilities
- Improve network security posture
- Measure security awareness and security response
APPLICATION PENETRATION TESTING
The Application Penetration test serves as a cost effective baseline assessment of potential exposures within an application or system. It is intended to simulate real-world attack scenarios on systems, networks, and data.
NETWORK PENETRATION TESTING
The Network Penetration Testing exposes specific weaknesses that could be exploited to allow unauthorized access to the network. Using port scans, and simulated attacks from inside and outside the network, K logix engineers identify high-risk vulnerabilities report on the overall strength of the environment. Upon completion of the tests, K logix provides remediation suggestions to improve network security posture.
A Social Engineering Assessment measures the client’s response and effectiveness in dealing with phishing attacks and other threats that prey on business users. We conduct a series of tests and measure success rates, response times, and user awareness and ability to identify these types of attacks. These assessments are important for measuring end-user and executive security awareness and security team response.

Our sensitive data discovery and classification services ensure that an organization manages and classifies their sensitive data to minimize risk.
Our expert team conducts data discovery and inventory through targeted scans for sensitive data, then identifies which data is considered sensitive. We find data such as social security numbers, license plate numbers, and credit card numbers. Our team prepares a Sensitive Data Storage Inventory Report which provides detailed recommendations on how the organization may decrease the risks involved in the storage and use of sensitive data. We take into account key regulatory or industry security requirements that apply to the scope of an engagement. We make strategic recommendations on data classification and categorization and explore opportunities to limit the exposure to certain types of information.
