Identify your greatest
cyber security risks and close the gaps.
Most organisations continue to invest in technologies to reduce the risk of security breaches. While it may seem like you’re doing everything that you can to protect your organisation, you may not be getting quite as much bang for your buck as you first thought. You could be investing in services or controls that have little to no impact on reducing cyber threats, leaving big holes in your security perimeter.
To protect your organisation from a potentially devastating breach, it’s essential to identify the gaps across your organisation so that you can lock them down - tight.
Loop’s security gap assessments utilise best global practice frameworks to define the gaps between the current and ideal state of security within your organisation, to deliver a roadmap forward based on priority.
At Loop, we don’t like to simply audit so, this solution can be delivered as a one-time engagement, or packaged into our Continual Compliance service to address the gaps found. Continual Compliance drives your cybersecurity program to support business objectives and develops a mature and effective Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) programme.
SECURITY GAP ASSESSMENTS
TO SUIT EVERY ORGANISATION
We understand that no two organisations are the same. Every business interacts with their customer’s data in different ways depending on the nature of the industry. Some organisations hold the responsibility of handling customer’s payment information, others collect Personally Identifiable Information (PII), while others must protect sensitive Intellectual Property (IP).
Depending on the industry in which a business operates, an organisation may also be required to comply with a number of different security standards issued by various regulatory bodies.
There’s no one size fits all when it comes to cybersecurity Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC). That’s why Loop performs a number of different security gap assessments that coincide with your industry’s regulatory security standards. Loop can also layer multiple standards to address all those that apply to your organisation in the one assessment, such as:
- ISO27001 – Certified/Aligned
- NIST - Aligned
- APRA CPS 234 - Compliance
- DFAR - Compliance
- HIPAA - Compliance
- PCI DSS - Compliance
- VPDSS – Compliance
Employing the experts to conduct a comprehensive security gap analysis will not only help you to strengthen your defenses, but it will also help you understand where the goalposts are in terms of compliance. Not only is compliance a legal requirement for any business, it is also a sure-fire way to gain the trust of your customers.
GAP ASSESSMENTS IMPROVED
THROUGH CONTINUAL COMPLIANCE
The first step to implement an effective cybersecurity program is to understand current state. A gap assessment will outline and prioritise a road map of requirements to address, based on your unique risks.
Our Continual Compliance service picks up where the gap assessment finishes off, delivering the actual work defined in the assessment. This managed service is a business enabler, providing assurance to existing and potential customers through robust security practices which actively secure and support your business. These practices not only provide the secure management of your customer’s personal, sensitive, and corporate data, but also support the ongoing management of legislative, regulatory, and contractual compliance obligations.

HOW WE WORK
WITH YOUR ORGANISATION

Our all-inclusive security gap assessment process looks like this:
Step one involves the identification of the correct security compliance framework based on the industry your business operates within. This framework will guide the security gap assessment allowing us to know where to point the torch so to speak. The domains and control groups within each framework
Identify Key Information Assets
To provide you with a comprehensive review of your current security posture in relation to your ISMS and critical information management, Loop will identify key information assets, busines owners and key stakeholders. This will be the subject of the analysis exercise.
Extensive Documentation Review and analysis
In this phase, Loop will extensively review documentation associated with all data collected and cover strategic objectives, risk appetite, currently identified risks, along with IT architecture, policies, processes, and other relevant records. This is critical to our process to deliver you a holistic understanding of the business and your industry’s specific risks and compliance requirements.
Based on the collected key information assets and documentation review, Loop engages with key stakeholders across your organisation. This finalises the gap analysis process.
What is a security gap assessment?
A security gap assessment is a thorough analysis of an organisation’s security defenses. It’s purpose is to highlight the ‘gaps’ between their current state of security and their desired state, taking specific industry standards into account.
How do you find security gaps?
Security gaps are identified by performing a security gap analysis or assessment. However, the specific method of identifying gaps will vary depending on the needs of the business and nature of the industry.
What is included in a security gap assessment?
Security gap assessments involve the analysis of the organisation’s current systems, tools and infrastructure, along with their staff and processes. The security gap assessors will then provide recommendations to enhance the organisation's security measures and comply with the relevant industry’s security standards.
