Trying to gain access to your network helps us identify any vulnerabilities that hackers can currently exploit. Then, we recommend upgrades to hardware, firewall, and/or IT policies and procedures for optimal protection. Regardless of your organization’s size and scope, we can help protect against the worst cyber threats.
IT Security Consulting Services
Organizations are increasingly relying on outsourcing to reduce costs and improve organizational focus.

Our Cybersecurity Solutions in Action
Assessing Effectiveness & Efficiency of Credit Card Payment Channels
A leading North American insurance provider wanted AWA to do an analysis on multiple payment card channels used by the organization. The company wanted to integrate automated payment processes after making multiple acquisitions both domestically and internationally. AWA met with business process owners to understand the scope reduction efforts, such as network segmentation and tokenization. We also analyzed how payment cards are stored and identify strategies to narrow the scope and effort of complying with PCI. AWA also evaluated its technical security architecture and capabilities against best-practice controls used among cross-division security leaders. The results uncovered a suggested integration path and many previously unreported insights about the payment processes throughout the company’s technology landscape.
Evaluating & Transforming the Information Security Management System
As a part of a security transformation, we helped the chief information security officer of a North American financial institution to evaluate their information security management system (ISMS) against the ISO27001 framework as well as their industry peers. The ISMS review was conducted through a series of interviews with key control process owners, walkthroughs of control processes, and review of policies, standards, and control artifacts to determine if key control processes were being performed. The recommendations provided from the assessment helped the company assess the maturity of their controls based on industry peers and improve their overall security posture.
