Navigating the Cybersecurity Journey

Oct 1, 2021

Patrick Clary, President & Chief Operating Officer at DYOPATH 

In my last blog, I discussed the urgent need for growing organizations to examine the state of their cybersecurity systems. Only after they reliably assess what’s working and what isn’t can they start navigating the complex waters of threat remediation.  

Where does this journey begin? With a comprehensive guide to identifying, prioritizing, and remediating all gaps in your environment. A proven Managed Service Provider (MSP) that has led countless organizations through this process will be able to provide you with a roadmap detailing all of the steps that lie ahead. 

Today’s Compliance Standards Demand More Proof of Mitigation 

Keeping insurance costs in check is one of the biggest themes in my conversations with clients about their cybersecurity concerns. Insured cyber losses reached $1.8 billion in 2019 alone. As compliance rules become stricter, that adds to the onus of companies to prove they’re as protected as possible.  

This is a key area where an industry-leading MSP like DYOPATH can provide extra value in your journey. Just look at our record. When working for one of the nation’s largest municipally-owned energy companies, we provided a structured set of processes that enhanced their security, ensured they met compliance requirements, and benefitted their entire customer base through improved operational resiliency.  

What’s on Your Organization’s Cybersecurity Roadmap? 

The advanced security service you use should be equipped to map out the phases of your risk assessment and remediation plan. Their goal should be to establish an enterprise‐wide perspective that ensures your security program is properly constructed, without overreaching, and meets the resiliency and security goals of the entire organization.  

These are just some of the components a cybersecurity roadmap might include: 

  • Data-driven measurements of your organization’s cybersecurity performance 
  • Exposure of any gaps in cybersecurity 
  • Security awareness training 
  • Upgraded protection plans and organizational security policies  
  • Solutions for internal and external compliance regulations 

At DYOPATH, we provide data-driven measurements of a client’s cybersecurity performance, comprehensive risk assessments, and multilayered cybersecurity protections. In my years of experience mitigating cyber risks for all types of organizations, I’ve seen this kind of holistic approach effectively accommodate both regulatory compliance and security requirements for all organizational operations. 

There’s a lot to unpack when navigating the roadmap toward a fully upgraded cybersecurity system. That’s where we come in. The cyber specialists at DYOPATH can explain precisely how to assess your current state, and follow up by tailoring solutions to meet your organization’s unique demands. Visit our website and schedule a meeting today. 

Thank you for taking the time to read this blog. As part of our “Chart the Unknown Security Gaps in Your Environment” campaign, we’re showing organizational leaders how to chart their cybersecurity journey through Advanced Security services. I have one remaining blog for this campaign, in which I’ll discuss more ways to improve your cybersecurity journey.
