Online Safety Education and Cybersecurity Assessments

Industrial Assessment Centers work with manufacturing clients to increase awareness of online risks and potential mitigation activities. As part of facility site visits, IAC clients may elect to receive an online security risk assessment to identify security and privacy deficiencies to the business infrastructure, with a focus on vulnerabilities associated with industrial controls systems.

An online security assessment is an evaluation of an organization's current online posture, processes, and protocols. It helps identify potential vulnerabilities and provides recommendations for improvement. Here are some of the benefits of an online security assessment:

Identify vulnerabilities: An online security assessment helps identify potential security gaps, vulnerabilities, and threats that may be present in an organization's IT infrastructure. By identifying these issues, the organization can take proactive measures to mitigate them before they are exploited by cybercriminals.

Improve security posture: An online security assessment helps an organization improve its overall security posture by providing recommendations for strengthening online controls, policies, and procedures.

Regulatory compliance: An online security assessment can help ensure that an organization is compliant with relevant regulations and standards, such as HIPAA, PCI DSS, and GDPR.

Risk management: An online security assessment helps organizations identify and prioritize risks, so they can allocate resources and budget more effectively to manage risk.

Build customer trust: An online security assessment demonstrates an organization's commitment to protecting its customers' sensitive data and can build trust with customers, partners, and stakeholders.

Cost savings: By identifying potential vulnerabilities and risks, an online security assessment can help prevent costly data breaches, downtime, and lost productivity.

In summary, an online security assessment helps organizations identify and address potential security risks, improve their security posture, and demonstrate their commitment to protecting sensitive data.
