Cyber Defense Tool


The Cyber Defense Tool, powered by CyberWA, allows an organization to perform a high-level assessment of its overall cybersecurity capabilities and preparedness. The assessment enables the organization to focus on key areas that will improve their cybersecurity posture and also aids in the identification and prioritization of risks that could be exploited in a successful cyberattack. 

The Cyber Defense Tool utilizes a proprietary methodology for assessing an organization’s susceptibility of being compromised, based on their cyber competencies. The Cyber Defense Tool is divided into eleven core focus areas: Cyber Maturity, Computing Devices, Smart City, Smart Devices, Network Infrastructure, Authentication & Access, Communications, Digital Footprint, Financial, Monitoring and Response and Threats & Compromises.

At the conclusion of an assessment, the organization is provided with scores for each category which identify how the organization assessed in each of the key areas. The organization will have access to a prioritized action plan that addresses each of the areas of concern. The action plan also incorporates no-cost and paid services from CIS and the MS/EI-ISAC. Organizations are able to track their progress in completing action items, which improves their organization's cyber scores.
