Cyber-criminals continuously evolve and adapt their methods of bypassing the traditionally rigid cyber-security controls organizations have in place. For organizations to stay safe they need to be similarly adaptive – this is where CDCAT comes in.
While it is highly advantageous for organizations to implement standards such as ISO/IEC 27001, or employ tools like penetration testing – these only constitute one part of an effective cyber security strategy.
CDCAT is designed so that the full sets of best practice controls are incorporated - including ISO/IEC 27001:2013, the US’ NIST Cyber Security Framework, UK’s 10 steps to Cyber Security and Cyber Essentials. As a result CDCAT is a truly comprehensive cyber-security assessment tool, enveloping the standard lifecycle of assess, deter, protect, detect and respond – mapped against the ITIL lifecycle of Service Strategy, Service Design, Service Transition and Service Operation.
