"Risk assessment is the foundation of Information Security. As the first step in almost every information security compliance and regulatory standard, organization must not ignore this vital step."
Identifying information assets and the real threats to those assets allows you to make responsible decisions about protecting them. Without this foundation, you risk spending too much on the wrong solutions to protect the wrong assets. When you get it right, you demonstrate responsible care in protecting the information of your customers and your business.
Risk assessment isn't a marketing give-away and we don't pad our assessments with hardware and software recommendations we hope to sell.
Working Security conducts risk assessments using National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) guidelines consistent with the complexity of your business and in compliance with industry standards like HIPAA.
With a Working Security Risk Assessment, you'll be able to make deliberate and prioritized changes to your computing policies and infrastructure that demonstrate due diligence in protecting information. We provide vendor neutral and unbiased assessments of your technology and how it mitigates business risk.

"You need to know that your investment in technology is protecting you from data losses and public breaches."
Business partners, clients, and regulators require that you regularly test your websites, networks, and devices for known vulnerabilities and misconfigurations. You test to ensure I/T service providers are diligent, to prioritize future upgrades, and for simple peace of mind. If you don't find the vulnerabilities in your websites and networks, outsiders will.
Working Security Testing Services include:
Scanning your networks, computers, and websites for vulnerabilities
Evaluating your wireless networks for insecure configurations
Penetration testing critical application and devices
Validating staff awareness through Social Engineering techniques
Delivering a risk prioritized plan to address vulnerabilities in the right order
Working with your teams to close issues and document success
Working Security delivers vulnerability reports, ethical hacking services, and penetration tests. We provide testing services on-site at your business and remotely by virtual private network (VPN) connection. All test services come with detailed technical results, prioritized to allow immediate mitigation of identified weaknesses. Our reports and matching action plans allow you to demonstrate a responsible standard of care for the data you hold for partners, clients, and customers.
The Ponemon Institute reports that the cost of a single stolen record is over $200 to respond and recover. Fines related to HIPAA violations range from $100 per record to $50,000 per record for repeat offenders.
But how much is an individual record worth to the cyber criminal? While the value changes over time and depends on the quality of the personal information they steal, medical records lead with an estimated value of between $10 and $50 per record. Credit cards by comparison are worth only $1 per record.
Medical Records $50 per record
Credit Cards $1 per record
Even with these returns in the thousands of dollars, the theft of a few thousand records is well worth worth it to criminals. The costs to organizations are significantly larger.
A small business with a few thousand records will spend tens of thousands of dollars just in the initial response to a breach and suffer effects long after.
The general public, our individual customers, and our employees are the consumers of privacy. Their expectations are real and supported by law.
Businesses, non-profits, and government are the providers. These organizations are guided by law, regulations, and standards which require steps be taken to secure data held in trust.
When those standards aren't met, organizations lose private information. When organizations lose private information, the losses can be devastating.
Working Security assists organizations of all sizes taking meaningful and measurable steps to improve the privacy protections they deliver for customers, members, and employees.
We develop systems and methods that inform leaders of data privacy risks, identify and implement mitigation strategies, and measure success.
