Cyber Security Posture

Challenge

As part of proceedings to ensure yearly financial and compliance certifications/requirements were met, a Florida based state college sought an independent 3rd party validation of their current cyber security methods.

This verification would also serve to ensure current cyber security procedures and tools were ample to support the organization as they expand the breadth of digital technologies utilized to deliver education.

They required a vulnerability audit that was thorough, quick to administer and cost effective.
