Security Program Management Framework
Program Assessment and StrategyVirtual Guardian conducts gap analysis to identify missing components or processes from an organization’s operations. Afterward, we bring forth strategies to fortify the program and bring it into compliance with standards and best practices.
Dangers old and newVirtual Guardian knows cybersecurity problems of today can be the result of choices made in the past. Missed updates, unapplied security patches, supply chain attacks, or the use of legacy technology can create vulnerabilities that need to be addressed. Virtual Guardian shows organizations how modern methods and technology will offer protection from current threats while preparing for future threats. Respecting what could come next is why we maintain a forward-looking vigil to the future of cybersecurity. Virtual Guardian monitors emerging threats, trends, and technologies to maintain a strong defensive position for an organization’s most sensitive assets.
Framing the solutionVirtual Guardian provides custom cybersecurity strategies for organizations by employing field-proven programs. Our method involves applying a framework of best practices and custom solutions crafted around an organization’s specific industry, operational process, and security needs.
Finding the path to cybersecurityVirtual Guardian uses security gap assessment to inform strategy. With an organization’s situation known and expectations defined, Virtual Guardian brings forth a plan of action that mitigates cybersecurity risks while enhancing operational efficiencies. This process can encompass our co-managed Virtual Guardian GRCx platform or training your team to understand how regulations are impacting security controls.
GovernanceSecurity and Risk Management programs are becoming increasingly complicated to manage and to provide reporting for each level of the organization. Footprints are constantly expanding, and functions like data security continue to challenge our coverage across multiple platforms and delivery methods. Let’s face it: it is getting tougher to monitor the lifecycle and current state of everything we do. There’s a simple reason why we are the choice of healthcare, financial, insurance, retail, and manufacturing industries to identify gaps, evaluate risks, and locate areas of opportunity within operational processes. It’s smarter and easier. We can help you with the governance aspects of your program, Security Architecture, and program documentation. Not sure where to start?

Security Architecture and Integration
Security Architecture Consultation
Virtual Guardian’s skilled architects analyze an organization’s cybersecurity challenges to make the right recommendations that can overcome them.
Virtual Guardian guides organizations along the complex journey of cybersecurity where the path between specific challenges and best-case solutions, services, or technologies may be unclear. When organizations work with Virtual Guardian, a senior security architect identifies issues to recommend the right solutions. We assess the current environment, discover what’s working well, and uncover gaps before making a recommendation.
In cybersecurity there is no such thing as “one size fits all.” That is why we start by listening and learning about your unique environment. From there, the Virtual Guardian team recommends right-sized solutions to protect your company without superfluous steps or unnecessary expenditures. We respect budgets, assets, and realities in our process to eliminate security gaps, drive operating efficiency, optimize investments, and protect an organization’s assets and reputation.
Solutions sized to the situation
Virtual Guardian dispatches assumptions so we can listen and learn about an organization’s cybersecurity program.

Workforce Identity & Access Management
A primary cause of breaches is too many users with excessive access privileges. Virtual Guardian can help you to empower your employees with fast, flexible access while giving you tight control over your data. We’ll advise you on the best solution and ensure your actions meet the need.
Customer Identity & Access Management
Data breaches are on the rise with no signs of slowing. Today’s customers demand great service and they also expect privacy. Privacy laws are catching up to these expectations, but are you doing everything you can to comply with regulations and keep the data you collect safe? Virtual Guardian provides insight into your IAM infrastructure via dashboards for visualizing your operational and customer identity metrics.
Vendor Identity & Access Management
When you partner with vendors, how do you ensure that they are not introducing risk into your environment? Are they using their access appropriately? Lack of visibility can leave you vulnerable. Virtual Guardian can help you measure risk, control access, and increase visibility to enhance your ability to work seamlessly with vendors while mitigating risk.
Steps to Identify Risk
Identifying risk is the first step of our VG360 methodology. The outcome is a stronger cybersecurity posture built following NIST best practices.
