Information security governance analysis
Employee awareness evaluation & social engineering
Business Continuity Plan & Business Recovery Plan evaluation
External Dependencies Management Assessment

Third-parties could have direct or indirect access to your network, and sometimes being used by an attacker to infiltrate the network and exfilitrate data or compromise and disturb business operations as well as damaging your company’s reputation.
GT Security Services’ External Dependencies Management (EDM) Assessment is dedicated to evaluate risk emerging from external connection to your company’s information security management system by analyzing and monitoring data flows to and from third-parties and establishing due diligence with third-parties to mitigate risks.

Data flow analysis
Relationship formation, management and governance
Service protection and sustainment
