Cybersecurity Risk Assessment – Wilmington DE

Risk Assessments Cybersecurity – Wilmington (DE)

Many Wilmington and Delaware 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.

ChristianaCare, a major healthcare provider, experienced a severe ransomware attack that resulted in the encryption of critical patient records and disrupted medical services.
