Cybersecurity Assessment Program (CAP) for Private Equity

Our Cybersecurity Assessment Program (CAP) provides a holistic review across people, process, and technology, resulting in a one-time or ongoing program that is customizable based on your PE Firm or Company’s business model and industry.  

With cyber breaches and attacks on the rise worldwide, Portfolio companies of Private Equity Firms as well as other fast-growing organizations need an unbiased, standardized cybersecurity assessment to identify their cyber risks and provide a remediation plan.

Most companies face these cybersecurity challenges: 

  • Inconsistency around the business risk profile 
  • Limited enforcement and accountability 
  • Limited time availability from management to monitor MSPs and cyber risks 
  • Difficult to determine the right level of investment in cybersecurity protection 
  • Financial fraud exposure risk as a result of their clients’ cybersecurity breaches
  • Lack of a clear path to resolution 
 

Our efficient team of experts help CFOs and CIOs find a clear path forward from these common challenges with a brief, efficient, high-impact Cybersecurity Risk Assessment engagement that not only identifies risks, but provides a clear remediation plan for resolution going forward.

Customizable Programs

Each Cybersecurity Assessment program can be tailored to the unique needs of your business, including depth and frequency, to match your risk profile.

Unbiased Advisor

As an independent third-party, we act on behalf of Executives, Board Members, and PE firms to ensure action is being taken to meet their goals and expectations for the company.

Cybersecurity Risk Assessments for Portfolio Companies

We work with Private Equity Firms to establish a Program for Portfolio-wide Cybersecurity Baseline, then work with each of their PortCos’ Leadership Teams and their MSP providers on an annual basis to ensure consistency and compliance.

Support ESG Initiatives

Environmental, Social, and corporate Governance (ESG) initiatives are a top priority for investors. A clear, agreed upon Cybersecurity Program can support your Governance goals and plans for your PE firm and/or company and can ensure strict adherence to the plan as well as improve reporting to your Board and investors.

Cybersecurity Report for Your Investors

Cybersecurity can feel like a moving target. We solve that for our Clients by providing a Cybersecurity Scorecard along with a clear set of actionable deliverables at the end of each Assessment, including remediation instructions to reduce risks. Investors
