Dynetics Introduces Cyber Risk Portal That Provides Economical Assessment of Users’ Cybersecurity

Friday May 22, 2015

Part of the Dynetics Cyber RiskScope™ portfolio of cyber risk management solutions, SelfAssure is an online, guided cyber risk self-assessment portal that enables users to assess the effectiveness of their organization's cybersecurity relative to the threats they are most likely to encounter. By leveraging Dynetics' 16 years of defending IT enterprises ranging from small businesses to national security agencies, SelfAssure goes beyond traditional cybersecurity compliance audits to provide high-value risk assessments of customers' cybersecurity implementation. SelfAssure is available immediately. 

Via an intuitive web interface, SelfAssure leads one or more users through a series of expertly crafted multiple-choice questions, the answers to which indicate how well their enterprise is meeting important cybersecurity objectives, explained Robert Dowling, Cyber RiskScope product manager. "The result is an economical, easy-to-grasp cyber risk assessment that serves as a great starting point for incorporating cyber risk management best practices into the enterprise."

SelfAssure delivers a cyber risk profile that reveals the likelihood that a customer's enterprise will encounter a breach, along with graphs that detail specific strengths and weaknesses and tailored recommendations for improving cybersecurity. 

User support options designed to ensure successful self-assessments include embedded self-help, a service desk and an expert support line for cybersecurity questions. The solution is based on the NIST Cybersecurity Framework.

"We've developed Cyber RiskScope to help companies answer business-critical questions related to cybersecurity," said Jonathan Whitcomb, Dynetics vice president of Enterprise Solutions.  "Additional offerings in the Cyber RiskScope portfolio of cyber risk management solutions include enterprise security monitoring and cybersecurity analysis services, executive-level risk assessments and comprehensive risk assessment and mitigation services."
