The explosion in computer interconnectivity, most notably in
the growth in Internet usage, has revolutionized the way that governments and
the private sector conduct business. Electronic data is the lifeblood of your
businesses, so protecting that data is critical.
We are fully prepared to support the risk management process
to help you assess risks and then manage them, dynamically and continuously.
This is a natural extension to the holistic approach of establishing an organization-wide
information security program.
QoS’ approach to risk management stems from years of
experience implementing best-practice solutions in the government and private
sectors where security of your data is an integral and high priority component
of the solution life cycle, not an afterthought. Our approach emphasizes
confidentiality, integrity, availability, authentication, and non-repudiation
while addressing the need to scale our capabilities to varying degrees of
system complexity. To meet this need we developed a strategy that closely
adheres to NIST’s Risk Management Framework (RMF) and relies on a llifecycle
approach for other security services.
Our approach demonstrates the application of security
controls and technologies that are governed by the RMF to meet the requirements
imposed through regulation, policies and standards to ensure security risks are
clearly communicated, mitigated, and managed to protect and ensure resilience
of your systems, information and business processes.
To begin with, QoS can perform a risk assessment of your
organization’s IT network, system, or application to provide a comprehensive
examination of the security measures and controls, of both a technical and
practical nature, employed by your organization. We will gather information
about vulnerabilities through interviews, site visits, review of documentation,
and on-site observation of procedures. QoS’ risk assessments reveal pertinent
information about the threats, vulnerabilities, and risks that exist. Each
identified risk receives an associated qualitative form of measurement to
evaluate it on a relative scale. Our risk assessment provides the foundation
for an organization to make informed decisions about which controls and
weaknesses require focus and potentially resources which then is integrated
into the overall risk management process
