Changing technologies, new vulnerabilities, and regulatory compliance.
Just a few things the Guide Star team loves to discuss over coffee.

Cybersecurity Laptop and Checklist Graphic

If technology is essential to your business, so is cybersecurity.

Cybersecurity remains one of the most pressing IT issues today. Most CIOs recognize cybersecurity as a top-five issue for 2022.

Focused on security for the unique needs of small and medium businesses, Guide Star understands the importance of aligning related spending to each customer's budget. We are technology agnostic, so we don’t resell security hardware or software. We can assist with augmenting your existing cyber program or implement an entirely new program, depending on your needs. We offer advisory services, and can help craft materials that can explain business impacts to board members and executives along with the best path forward.

Cybersecurity Assessments

In-house IT teams may not have the cybersecurity expertise or the time it takes to monitor threats 24/7, so a Cybersecurity Assessment from Guide Star can help identify security gaps. Our assessments provide a 360-degree view of your organization's risk. Taking proactive steps to mitigate identified risks can mean the difference between a data breach or business as usual. Here's a brief overview of what our assessment includes:

We provide a detailed analysis of existing infrastructure and recommend ways to improve both system and data security.

Roadmap Icon

We utilize a roadmap approach, with clear next steps based on the level of impact. You choose what to do and when.

Recommendations are technology agnostic. We support what’s right for your business.

Action items are aligned with requirements for cybersecurity insurance policies. The plan addresses all risks identified.

A one-time, flat-rate fee includes:

  • Highly trained technical support teams who put you first.
  • Results that are yours to share with your IT team, or any outside provider.
  • A detailed summary of findings split into distinct categories:
    • Positive findings
    • Maintenance suggestions
    • Software and hardware gaps
    • Access Control findings
    • Awareness and Policy recommendations
    • Pain Points
  • You'll also receive a complete risk analysis, our remediation roadmap, a security diagram, dark web results, and CVE results.
