Cybersecurity Risk Assessment – Denver

Risk Assessments Cybersecurity – Colorado

Many Denver and Colorado businesses face various challenges when managing cybersecurity programs. This includes ever-evolving threats, human errors, misconfigurations, poor maintenance, and a lack of a formal cybersecurity plan. An organization is exposed to reputational damage, intellectual property theft, stolen data, and financial loss without adequate and updated protections. In fact, according to IBM’s Cost of a Data Breach Study, the average breach cost in 2023 was $4.5M. This figure reflects the loss potential and the importance of a comprehensive cybersecurity program.

The first step in evaluating your program is to conduct a cybersecurity risk assessment. It is designed to identify and test assets that could be impacted by an attack, including hardware, systems, customer/patient data, and intellectual property. It also looks for vulnerabilities due to poor cyber hygiene, cloud vulnerabilities, poor data management, and inadequate post-attack procedures. The resulting report provides insight into how to increase overall effectiveness.

Denver has experienced several cybersecurity incidents highlighting the ongoing challenges in protecting digital infrastructure. One notable event was the Denver Cybersecurity Summit, which brought together experts to discuss how to best protect vulnerable business applications and critical infrastructure. The summit covered various topics, including the impact of AI on security and modern attack trends, emphasizing the importance of understanding and anticipating threat actors’ motives and tactics.

Moreover, Denver has seen a rise in sophisticated cyber threats, including the use of generative AI by adversaries to conduct social engineering and create malicious software. This has increased the complexity and frequency of attacks, making it crucial for organizations to enhance their cybersecurity readiness. The Akira ransomware, which has impacted multiple critical infrastructure entities, is a significant concern. It highlights the need for robust defenses and the implementation of mitigation strategies to reduce the risk of such incidents.
