Cybersecurity Consulting & Solutions

Protect, Detect, Respond, Update, and Assess Your IT Systems

One of the biggest technology issues facing every organization today, regardless of size, are Cybersecurity threats. But you know that!

The problem is, most companies think that having a strong firewall and anti-virus software in place are enough to cover the threats. They are not.

Your IT systems require a comprehensive approach involving tools, processes, policies, and regular user awareness training education to address both IT security and compliance needs.

The National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) has created a Cybersecurity Framework. It provides the 5 section Cybersecurity Framework to addressing security threats. Each Section has multiple components, each designed to help address the prevention, detection, and effective recovery from threats to our data and systems.

Most IT support organizations and internal IT teams can address the steps in black under the sections on the NIST chart. Affiliated’s top-tier Security Solutions also address the section steps highlighted in blue to provide better overall protection against loss of data or prolonged downtime and productivity disruption in the event of an attack.
