Our baseline Information Security Assessment process helps you to define weak points in both your technology and compliance programs. Our assessment is aligned with the NIST Cybersecurity Framework, and current releases from the Securities and Exchange Commission and FINRA.

Our ISA program is designed to give you:

  • A baseline assessment and comparison with your peer group (benchmarking);
  • Technical recommendations for improvement of your firm’s cybersecurity posture;
  • Recommendations for improvement of the human element of your cybersecurity program;
  • Alignment of your program with SEC and FINRA releases, understanding, and expectations;
  • Necessary policy pieces, including incident response and recovery procedures, that are custom-created for your firm and its unique circumstances; and
  • Training and understanding for your compliance department, technical team, and executives.

As a boutique firm, we focus on putting your needs first. Your security is our success. Beyond the Information Security Assessment, we remain available for your team to answer questions or to provide updates as necessary.

An Information Security Assessment is a great first step for any program that is looking to benchmark itself well against its peers in the eyes of both its customers and regulatory agencies.

Artemis’s custom Information Security Assessment is an on-site or remote process that takes a holistic view of your firm, your clients, your technology, and your risk profile. This process seeks to identify and remediate gaps across your entire organization. An engagement typically begins with a document request list and an interview schedule. While on site, our certified team members will work with you and your staff to:

  • Identify Gaps in Policy and Procedure.
  • Identify Weaknesses in Existing Structures.
  • Define Teams and Reporting Personnel.
  • Note Weaknesses in Physical and Electronic Security.
  • Implementing Required Processes, such as Vendor Due Diligence and Incident Response & Recovery.

Framework Implementation

Cybersecurity is the determining reputational factor for financial services firms. For those companies that aspire to embrace best practices and benchmark above their peers, we recommend a cybersecurity framework implementation. Once a stable baseline has been developed, implementation of a framework, such as the NIST Cybersecurity Framework demonstrates to both regulators and investors that your firm takes its role as a critical infrastructure provider seriously.

Cybersecurity is the determining reputational factor for financial services firms. For those companies that want to rise to the top of their peers, we recommend a cybersecurity framework implementation. Once a stable baseline has been developed, implementation of a framework, such as the NIST Cybersecurity Framework demonstrates to both regulators and investors that your firm takes its role as a Critical Infrastructure Provider seriously.

For smaller firms, a Framework Implementation can:

  • Provide a communications avenue for executive understanding of cybersecurity;
  • Unify disparate fuctional groups, such as compliance and IT;
  • Identify weaknesses and necessary remediation points; and
  • Achieve a best-of-breed due diligence document for your investors, who want to know how you are protecting their information.

For larger firms, a Framework Implementation provides the same benefits listed above, but in addition provides a unifying document that can be used across entities, affiliates, and borders. Use of a framework will help you identify weaknesses in specific units or functional groups and prioritize remediation.

Our consultants can answer any questions you may have about framework implementation across one office or an entire entity.

A Simple Way to showcase your Cybersecurity practices and future plans.

The NIST CSF is an excellent and approachable document that can help you identify weaknesses in your firm or across your organization. Easily identify and prioritize weaknesses.

Document your commitment to cybersecurity – a commitment increasingly required by your investors and regulators.

Our NIST Framework Implementation is a process designed to:

  • Benchmark a Current Profile
  • Identify a Target state that works for both your structure and your budget.
  • Train on Framework Use and modification
  • Offer ongoing support – You’re never alone!
