Multi-step Assessment and Process 

A one size fits all cybersecurity solution is not sufficient for maritime organizations.  Using a holistic approach, we work alongside our customers to assess their current security posture and provide recommendations based on specific needs and requirements. Gnostech’s team has specialized skills and expertise in vulnerability assessment methodologies to mitigate cyber risks:

  • Conduct risk assessment of assets, facilities or systems
  • Conduct security best practices and risk assessment of SCADA and Industrial Control Systems
  • Implement Risk Management Framework security controls
  • Conduct vulnerability assessment and mitigation strategy
  • Develop compliance and accreditation documents

See our step-by-step process:

We utilize sound engineering practices and development when creating custom solutions for clients. We follow DoD best practices and government frameworks, such as NIST. The multi-step process takes into account the specific characteristics and requirements of our clients. We assess, recommend, develop, and implement a dynamic solution for any maritime system, asset or facility requested. Some of the sample activities for each step of our proven process include:
