Independent Assessment Strategies for a Risk Free Business
Eliminating the risk of cyber-crime is crucial for the success of any business. The process of managing risks begins with an accurate risk assessment. That is what we do at Mars Technology — a company that has been working for years in Washington, DC, and McLean, Virginia, applying the Independent Assessment procedures to make sure your business is secure and risk free.
Our company works with federal bodies and renowned establishments in the Security and Cloud Computing industry, developing a path of modernization and advancements across the corporate landscape. The approach we use for larger businesses is built on a set of Independent assessment strategies, which follow risk management principles. This includes C&A/A&A services, Independent Validation and Verification testing, and 3PAO services.
Through IV&V testing, we make sure that a product, service, or system is meeting the requirements and specifications and fulfilling its intended purpose.
3PAO testing indicates that we work as a third-party Assessment Organization. Through our services we benefit our clients and partners in establishing a detailed assessment strategy that keeps their business free of risks and threats.
All our services are in accordance with the Department of Defense and NIST Risk Management Frameworks. We cover all prospects necessary for an independent assessment strategy, which includes:
Cybersecurity/Security Control Assessment: This is the testing and/or evaluation of the management, operational, and technical security controls in an information system.
Documentation Review: This is the task of documentation that serves as a guide for performing the review. The review focuses on risks that are a threat to security and principles of data protection, system security, and network operations.
Security Assessment Plan (SAP): This is a government wide-program that provides a uniformed approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for Cloud Service Providers.
Security Assessment Report (SAR): This report is the result of an extensive security assessment of a CSP's cloud service offering, this includes a summary of the risks correlated with susceptibilities of the system analyzed during testing.
Vulnerability Scanning & Assessment: This is process that analyses threats and the risks with the use of automated testing tools, like network security scanners. The result of this is listed in a Vulnerability Assessment report.
Penetration Testing: Also known as pen testing or ethical hacking, is the practice of testing a computer system, network or web application to find the flaws in security that an attacker can manipulate. This is done with the help of software applications or manually.
Accreditation Recommendation: This is an independent expert opinion given by the agency based on a regulated assessment procedure.
