Program Assessment Services for Governance, Risk, and Compliance

If you do not understand your security posture, you cannot improve it.

Step one in the implementation of a strong information security assurance program is understanding your security posture. The Penn Group offers security assessment and compliance services to help secure your organization. The implementation of security is only as good as its weakest link. The Penn Group understands the complex nature of information system security, and is ready to uncover the next generation of vulnerabilities.

Performance of Continuous Monitoring

Every day, new security vulnerabilities are discovered in the wild. In a constant cat and mouse game, the security teams are constantly in a race against cybercriminals to lock down systems and keep the organization secure. Security is not a checkbox or a summit. It is a continuously evolving science that requires constant attention.

The Penn Group cybersecurity consultants use their expertise in security assessment, compliance, and system authorization to analyze threats to cloud and on-premise systems based on their likelihood of occurrence. The Penn Group uses a combination of threat intelligence, system design documentation, and the factors of risk to implement strategic risk mitigation strategies. Ultimately the goal is to provide your leadership with the facts they need to make the best long term decisions.

We have performed evaluations of complex secure systems, small, dedicated systems, cloud-based services, and e-commerce systems. Our consultants have assisted the United States Department of Defense, the United States Department of Justice, Fortune 500 companies, non-profit organizations, and small businesses.

Network Security Testing and Evaluation

Understanding Your Information Systems

All of our cybersecurity consultants have an extensive information technology background with a foundation in information system architecture, networking, and policy. We understand the fundamental weaknesses of information systems, and the steps required to secure them. Using a deep understanding of applied information assurance, our consultants use commercial and open source tooling to conduct penetration testing on your systems without causing damage.  After performing testing, our consultants prepare a detailed reporting, including a Plan of Action & Milestones (POA&M) to give your organization a road map to a robust security posture.

Win the Audits, Do Not Just Survive Them

Don’t just meet the requirements, exceed them.

In most industries, cybersecurity compliance is not required by federal law, yet. Cybersecurity regulation in the United States, popularized by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in Europe, is on the horizon and should be closely monitored. However, specific organizations must comply with industry and government standards.

The Penn Group supports compliance with regulatory requirements in the commercial sector such as GLBA, HIPAA, PCI-DSS. We’re also a provider of federal assessment and authorization (A&A) services to the Federal Government, and the Department of Defense. We are dedicated to ensuring that your organization not only meets the requirements of compliance, but exceeds them where necessary to enhance the safety of your customers.
