In today’s complex IT environment, every organization needs to balance its users’ technology needs — speed, ease of use and convenience — against the critical need to keep information safe and secure against a variety of sophisticated threats and potential liability.
Clearview Group will partner with you to evaluate your environment and provide real solutions to assist your IT department in strengthening controls.
Our team is comprised of leading IT audit, governance compliance and security professionals with significant international experience across all industry verticals. We’ll help you ensure systems operate optimally to support your organization’s strategic vision.
Understanding how IT risks impact your overall Enterprise Risk Management framework is critical in today’s technology-dependent world. Our team can manage your entire IT risk assessment project, or we can integrate our technical expertise into existing risk management processes. Clearview’s IT risk assessment methodology combines leading best practice frameworks, such as COBIT 5 and NIST 800-30, with decades of real world experience to deliver practical results that are meaningful to both IT and business leaders.
Ensuring IT is delivering value and supporting the organization’s strategic plan is critical. Our IT governance assessment methodology leverages common frameworks, such as COBIT 5 and ISO 38500, to deliver powerful results based on our team’s collective experience in IT and IT security leadership positions. Our unique approach and combined experience make sure IT and security functions aren’t viewed in isolation but are evaluated under the overall corporate governance model.
Clearview has extensive experience assisting companies — from pre-IPO to the Fortune 50 — with IT SOX compliance needs. Whether your organization is just getting started or has complied for years, our methodology gives you an IT SOX program that operates efficiently and achieves maximum reliance from external auditors. We also have the tools and experience to refine and optimize an existing IT SOX Program to improve reliance and maximize value by rationalizing risks, key controls and evidence retention.
Whatever the industry, the technology or geography, ISO standards are used to ensure safety, efficiency and quality are in place using an internationally recognized set of best practices. In the IT space, organizations want to be informed about the investment of time and money required for ISO certification for technology-related standards. They want to understand the gaps that exist in their current environment and the level of effort needed to prepare for the certification process.
Clearview is able to provide guidance based on experience with the ISO 27000 series of standards around information security. We can also provide a practical and cost-effective way of obtaining certification for standards within the ISO 27000 series on information security management, risks and controls within the context of an overall information security management system.
With the continual motion of the technology landscape, internal audit departments cannot hire full time resources with the expertise to adequately address their IT audit plan. Clearview’s breadth of technology and security resources enable us to fully support your IT audit plan. Our blend of IT auditors, IT and security practitioners makes us uniquely qualified to plan and execute IT audit projects or add subject matter expertise to an existing audit team. We have the capabilities to allow our clients to fully outsource the IT audit plan to us or we can provide supplemental assistance as needed.
Technology risk mitigation underpins most regulatory compliance areas. Our team has extensive experience in both auditing against compliance standards and managing the practical implementation of these standards. Our review methodology leverages our collective industry knowledge, proprietary process and technical tools to map out your compliance needs and identify where control or process gaps exist in the current environment.
SOC readiness assessments are critical to determine an organization’s timeline for a successful SOC 1, 2 or 3 audit. Our team has extensive experience assisting company’s scope and tailoring a SOC audit program that works for their particular business. Our SOC readiness methodology provides our clients a roadmap with practical recommendations to ensure a successful SOC audit engagement. As a Maryland-registered CPA firm, we also provide SOC 1, 2 and 3 audit services under the AICPA guidelines.
Policies and procedures are the foundation of any successful enterprise risk management & compliance program. We leverage our extensive experience to either create a full set of IT policies, standards and procedures tailored to your organization, or to review existing documentation and provide recommendations for improvement. We also have experience assisting clients with user education and frameworks to monitor user receipt and acknowledgement of key policies and procedures.
Our team has experience auditing the implementation, as well as functionally owning, DR/BCP programs. We work with our clients to design and implement processes that provide confidence your business will continue in the face of unplanned disruptions. We have the expertise to ensure all technology elements are properly integrated into the overall BCP program to achieve attainable recovery times and resumption of business services.
Our proprietary security assessment methodology combines our innovative, leading-class technical tools with industry recognized frameworks that present security challenges in a business-focused, risk-centric manner. We use our deep expertise to evaluate your threat surface, develop our testing strategy and execute our scans and penetration test procedures to provide you with a holistic perspective of your vulnerabilities and security risks. We also have the IT audit and control expertise to evaluate your existing security tools and processes. We evaluate both technical vulnerabilities and the “human” risk through our simulated phishing and social engineering service.
Simply put, your leaders want answers. How susceptible are we to a data breach? Are we vulnerable to an insider threat? Let the Clearview team deliver these answers through our assessment services, tactical advisory and outsourced CISO services. We take complex technical results and provide actionable deliverables that focus on business risk, not technical jargon.
Efficient and effective IT Operations is foundational to business success and should be a blend of “keeping the lights on” and creating process efficiencies where possible. The Clearview team has extensive practical experience in technology operations roles, from startups to the Fortune 500. Combined with our IT audit and process efficiency skills, our team can operate on “both sides of the isle” and can either advise and recommend improvement opportunities, or you can let us fully manage your technical operations.
