The Essential Security Program (ESP) was developed by SyCom to assess an organization’s IT security posture. Using a modular and scalable approach, ESP focuses on three distinct areas to mitigate business technology risks. SyCom’s Essential Security Program leverages industry standards and regulatory compliance guidelines like NIST 800-53, ISO 27002, PCI-DSS, HIPAA and CIS Critical Controls.

Program Features:

  • IT Risk Management — Our GREEN TEAM focuses on business cybersecurity initiatives such as policies, risk, and compliance; then uses findings from GREEN, BLUE and/or RED team(s) to develop an IT Risk Assessment.
  • Security Operations Center (SOC) Services — Our BLUE TEAM reviews Critical Infrastructure components, mapping out areas for improvement.
  • Cybersecurity Testing — Our RED TEAM conducts penetration testing and vulnerability assessments to understand real and present risks. Learn more.

What’s Next?

For several years, SyCom has been performing Essential Security Program (ESP) risk assessments for enterprise and mid-market organizations as a proven methodology for benchmarking cybersecurity and developing prioritized strategies for improvement. The ESP Cybersecurity Workshop was distilled from this practice to provide a similar baseline assessment through a mentored discovery process. This workshop delivers a foundational evaluation that reflects risk and a prioritized path toward improvement.
