How a CyberCompare risk and threat analysis led to competitive advantages for a machine manufacturer
After changing his system our client needed help with the planning and executions of a risk analysis and a business impact analysis (BIA).
We focused on the acquisition of information. Based on that information we conducted a workshop and created multiple risk analyses.
Thanks to the analyses multiple vulnerabilities were easily found and closed. Additionally, the risk assessment will be available for the management for continued help with future decisions.

Analysis of the system and identification of vulnerabilities
First, we identified the current state of cyber risk and the top risk scenarios. To archive this our expert team started to conduct interviews with important employees. To process the collected information, we organized a workshop and acquired what the desired state of security should be – according to our risk analysis. Afterwards we prioritized potential actions according to an evaluation of the loss and disruption potential of assets. The results as well as a customized reference architecture to minimize attack surface and attack vectors were summarized in a report for the management.
The CyberCompare method:
Minimization security risks and attack vectors
From the analysis we found a few critical vulnerabilities which we thoroughly analyzed and evaluated. Through the recommended architecture which follows Security by Design, the vulnerability surface and the attack vectors were minimized. The created risk report is available for the management for future decisions of budget, guidelines, and procedures. The guidelines to the risk report help the company to choose measures efficiently. Further, the achieved long-term cost reduction through using the best solution for business critical sectors gives the company an competitive advantage.
