With recent increases in attacks and shifts in regulatory environments, cybersecurity now poses enterprise-wide risks to an organization’s bottom line and reputation. It is more important than ever for industry leaders to be strategic about cybersecurity protections. Doing so effectively requires regular assessment of an organization’s cyber strategy, capabilities and weaknesses.
Fortunately, Guidehouse offers proven approaches to analyzing and improving cybersecurity throughout the organization.
Our Cybersecurity Capability Assessment evaluates your cybersecurity program using established cybersecurity governing principles. With more than two decades of experience—including assessing the cybersecurity of the U.S. government—we understand the business critical importance of protecting a company’s sensitive data and information.
Our Cybersecurity Capability Assessment takes you through the cyber life cycle to assess your ability to identify, protect, detect, respond, and recover—and provides a foundational overview of your ability to secure your ever-evolving information assets.

A strong cybersecurity program is holistic and requires continuous vigilance. This includes defining your organization-wide responsibilities, building effective processes, and leveraging needed technology to identify, protect, detect, respond, and recover.
2. Systemic Assessment
Our assessment includes stakeholder interviews, architecture evaluation, optional cyberattack simulations, policy and procedure reviews, and an evaluation of your technology and practices.
