In this digital age, it’s more important than ever for business owners to protect their business from cyberattacks and data breaches. You may have protective controls in place, but it is equally important to test the effectiveness of these controls regularly.
Have you ever left your home, shut the door and then reached back to jiggle the doorknob to make sure the door is latched and locked? This is an example of testing a protective control. The same concept applies to the digital world, we must test our cybersecurity controls to ensure they are working as intended.
At Great Lakes Computer Corporation, we have a number of methods we follow to ensure a business is properly protected and that all the protective components in place are working as effectively as they should. For example, one common way to test the effectiveness of cybersecurity controls is to conduct a penetration test (an exercise in which an ethical computer hacker will simulate an actual cybersecurity attack against your organization). Another option is a vulnerability assessment.
Use these resources to help ensure your business is protected—today and every day with the security secret weapon…
This Cybersecurity Self-Assessment is designed to provide insight to those responsible for achieving regulatory compliance and protecting assets. The assessment is a high-level evaluation that will help determine the cybersecurity preparedness level of the organization based on the widely adopted National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework.

What has been the secret weapon of successful business owners for many years?
