Governance, Risk, and Compliance

GRC is Your Cybersecurity Posture

A key part of effective IT governance is ensuring the correct information is accessible to the right people at the right time. In large, complex organizations, governance alone can be incredibly challenging. Aligning governance practices must happen before effective decision-making regarding risk and risk management can take place.

Understanding the risks your organization confronts is an important part of determining where your IT spend and precious resources should be directed in order to mitigate the risks discovered. Managing this risk tends to produce significant backlogs that may take years to fully realize, let alone needing to juggle it while operating and defending your IT estate as best as you can.

Gap Assessment

A GRC gap assessment is key to learning where your organization stands in its compliance journey. In our gap assessment, we’ll collect and review your organization’s security documentation and summarize gaps in policies, procedures, and supporting evidence when compared to your compliance standard. The resulting Gap Analysis Report can then be used to prioritize high-value changes to your compliance and security posture.

Risk Management Framework (RMF) Assessment

RMF Assessments are how you ensure compliance to regulatory requirements. MindPoint Group has significant experience with assessing customer environments, process, and procedures. Regardless of which framework you’re using, we’re ready to walk you through the assessment process. Through a combination of documentation reviews, observations, and technical testing, we’ll provide you with an accurate reflection of your security posture while providing information to help evaluate associated risks related to findings identified.

Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) Assessment

The Department of Defense (DoD) will soon require a specific level of security for all third-party vendors. Subcontractors must hold a Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) to work with this organization and be a part of their overall supply chain. Any organization that is not compliant with this new certification model will not be able to continue contracts with the DoD.

GRC Designed with your Business in Mind

We don’t think of your organization’s GRC as one team’s role—it’s best viewed as an embedded strategy throughout the entire organization. GRC done properly spans all aspects of the IT organization but is accessible, well understood, and well-automated to the point where policies can be integrated into DevOps and DevSecOps practices across the board.

MPG’s experience across all three disciplines enables us to identify gaps in strategy and develop plans and programs that work with how your organization works. Working with existing teams and processes requires that your GRC partner have a strong emotional intelligence that will help us work more closely with your staff to understand the core problem, and deliver the solutions that close the gap.

Whether you need to implement your entire GRC program anew, or just need help with one of the pillars, we’re here to help.
