Internal audit is really three roles rolled into one:
Providing advice to middle and senior management
Providing consultation to business process stakeholders
Taken as a whole the overarching imperative being to provide independent and objective insight that informs / helps manage risk. Automating and simplifying the audit query process (what is my ACTUAL status?) has long been the clarion cry from auditors particularly around information technology / cyber security.
Cyber Observer answers this call – allowing auditors to:
Help set posture benchmarks
Observe the development of the posture (better or worse?)
Read the actual by Enterprise / Region / Department / Division or individual tool in near real time
Automatically compare to vendor and standards (ISO, NIST, NCSC etc) best practice to illustrate gaps
Set alerts that bring their attention to any aspect they consider critcal has dropped out of range
Over 80% of risk is covered by tools that if configured correctly enable time to be focused on the 20% not covered and therefore presenting the highest vulnerability.
Observer Solutions was founded by business leaders who saw that the fog of cyber security had become so dense that we built a research and consulting team to cut through to provide absolute clarity on the as is situation with clear plain English recommendations on steps to enhance. Our mantra has become two-fold: Simplify and Automate.
