“We believe the right metrics are needed to track cybersecurity progress. Our data breach prevention and CMMC audits quantifiably measure the effectiveness of our CISO-as-a-Service. Our goal is to move the needle on what will actually reduce cyberattack risk.” Christian Espinosa, Alpine Security CEO

Alpine Security recently revamped its CISO-as-a-Service program. Alpine Security’s CISO-as-a-Service program now includes a baseline and bi-annual data breach prevention audit and Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) audit. The purpose of Alpine Security’s data breach prevention audit is to provide organizations with a quantifiable overview of their cybersecurity landscape based on management, operational, and technical control groupings. The breach prevention audit report includes a list of top weaknesses along with a prioritized Top 10 list including individual recommendations. The CMMC’s purpose is to review and combine various cybersecurity standards and best practices and map these controls and processes across several maturity levels that range from basic cyber hygiene to advanced. Alpine Security’s CMMC audit establishes a cybersecurity maturity level upon which to improve.

Alpine Security’s CISO-as-a-Service annual program has three main goals:

1. Reduce your risk of a successful cyberattack

2. Align cybersecurity with your business and compliance objectives

3. Mature your cybersecurity posture
