Most recently, Tom developed an online tool to help companies and government in all aspects.
The Security Maturity Assessment tool allows any organization to assess their current cybersecurity health, or development a roadmap to allow for the environment to be more secure, while grading and finding risks within the environment.
This SMA provides a clear easy to follow coloured roadmap that really puts the understanding of the cyber risk back in the hands of the governing team. Upon completion a true understanding of gaps, where to focus budget money to fix, and what remediation plan to use, will be clear, even to the least technical team leader.
From this assessment any organization can develop remediation plans or not, depending on the value of the risk. In other words, the most alarming ‘fixes’ that need to be dealt with will be very apparent and can be focused on right away.
Tom also develops tailored assessments, that can be utilized for data protection or privacy needs. Commonly, vulnerability assessments or penetration testing are performed to assist in showing the actual current threats for an environment including any cloud data stores. By using a tailor made plan, peace of mind and cost savings, will keep the environment safe from the threats that exist today.
Having managed information or cyber security from regional and global positions in the insurance and finance industries, his experience is hard to find.
