HALOCK Industry Threat (HIT) Index
Certain industries can help plan for specific threats affecting their profession. Brick-and-mortar businesses can suffer from physical attacks that compromise point-of-sale. Highly regulated industries can be impacted from personnel errors handling sensitive data. The patterns, when seen as data, are unmistakable.
Compare the HIT Index information to the strength of your controls that would prevent or detect those attacks. Estimate the most and least likely ways your organization will suffer a cybersecurity or information security incident.
Leverage the HIT Index to predict the likeliest threat vectors — paths cybercriminals use to gain access and take advantage of vulnerabilities in networks or devices — for your particular industry.
We can help you incorporate likely threat vectors into your organization’s existing risk analysis (Risk = Impact x Likelihood). Use that risk calculus as a guide to help your company prioritize risks based on foreseeable threats that could harm the company itself or others outside the organization, including customers, vendors, and more. The Duty of Care Risk Analysis (DoCRA) standard can guide you in incorporating the index into your strategy to develop a reasonable security plan.
The HIT Index will help support your risk management strategy in our evolving cyber landscape. Learn more about your industry and establish reasonable safeguards as regulators require.
