Cybersecurity Risk Assessment – Santa Fe (NM)

Risk Assessments Cybersecurity – Santa Fe (NM)

Many Santa Fe and New Mexico 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.

Recent Santa Fe Cybersecurity Incidents

Santa Fe, NM has experienced several cybersecurity incidents recently, leading to increased measures to enhance cyber defenses. In response to these incidents, Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham issued Executive Order 2024-011 to strengthen cybersecurity measures across state agencies. This order mandates thorough IT and security assessments and requires state agencies to adopt robust cybersecurity policies based on national standards. These measures aim to detect and mitigate security vulnerabilities within state information systems​.

The City of Santa Fe’s IT infrastructure was also targeted, prompting the involvement of the Cybersecurity Planning Committee. This committee, composed of cybersecurity professionals from various sectors, was established to develop strategies to address risks to information systems and to advise on necessary cybersecurity legislation and funding opportunities.
