The rise of cyber crimes continues to accelerate, and that is quite evident with the recent attacks that have compromised the security of many organizations, including the established ones in the industry. Ransomware such as WannaCry, Petya, and ZCryptor have caused financial and reputational damages to organizations throughout the globe. While it is impossible to eliminate entire cyber threats, well-designed cyber security programs can actively mitigate the impact of cyber attacks and enhance the network security posture of an organization.
To effectively deal with these growing cyber threats, today, organizations are increasingly employing cyber risk assessment services. Because cyber risk assessment services can identify risks and vulnerabilities of an enterprise by applying administrative actions and match them to the internal and external cyber threats. In addition, they also provide an in-depth assessment of an organization’s ability to protect information from the impact of cyber threats.
With an aim to protect an organization’s infrastructure by identifying gaps in the security infrastructure, Jeffrey Jones introduced Topgallant Partners in 2003. With more than 25 years of experience in Cyber Security, Telecommunication, and Network industry, Jones exactly knew the types of services to include in his company’s portfolio.
