The SPR service is designed to help organizations assess the maturity of their security program and enhance it. The security program is evaluated based on a framework picked by the customer. This includes the NIST Cybersecurity Framework, NIST 800 82, CIS Controls, ISO/IEC 62443, ISO 27001, C2M2, FERC/NERC-CIP, CISA TSS and ITU CIIP.

The SAR service assesses the customer’s security capabilities to ensure compliance. It also helps them enhance their existing security solutions.

As for the penetration testing service, it combines IT and OT pentesting methodologies to assess all security aspects of the production environment.

GuidePoint also offers IT-focused governance, risk and compliance offerings, as well as threat and attack simulation services.

“The convergence of OT and traditional IT infrastructure into ICS environments has led to easier operational oversight, but it also introduces new avenues for attackers to exploit,” said Pascal Ackerman, senior security consultant at GuidePoint. “Through the combined expertise of our Governance, Risk and Compliance, and ICS penetration testing practices, we can provide customers with an assessment of their entire ICS security posture, evaluating every angle of their environment.”
