Our Approach

Strategy First

Information security exists to protect AND enable the business – not hinder it. Our first objective is to get clear about your information security goals and how they align with your organization’s overall business strategy - taking into account your organization’s risk tolerance, culture, obligations, and business environment.

Simple & Actionable

Information security is a constantly evolving, highly complex space. At Avalution, our unique talent is taking the complex and simplifying it into actionable steps by:

  • Connecting your strategy, risks, and controls in a way that clarifies and drives action;
  • Explaining risk in a straightforward manner at the appropriate level in the business to increase awareness and consensus; and
  • Providing direction on implementing various security processes and tools.

Our discussions result in real improvement to your security posture.

Visible Results

What good is “it” if you can’t define “it” or measure “it”? We create information security programs that are auditable and deliver clarity regarding your information security posture. We provide a list of controls, the details that prove those controls exist and are performing appropriately, and a higher-level view of your overall information security capabilities and gaps.

This approach provides a basis and the process to measure information security success as defined by your organization.

Our Services

Virtual CISO

We offer on-demand, executive-level insight without additional headcount, including:

  • Identifying and evaluating your critical assets, and then providing independent recommendations based on your unique business, culture, and industry; and

Avalution can provide you with experienced information security executives to practically address your organization’s risk.

Security Program Setup

A well-designed security program enables the organization to dynamically manage risks when change occurs or a threat evolves. Instead of solely focusing on a simple set of control objectives and procedures, Avalution designs security programs that are coordinated across the organization - allowing security concerns to be weighed proactively with support from “the top”.
