Assessment services are critical in identifying security vulnerabilities, checking the effectiveness of existing security measures, and ensuring that organisations remain compliant with industry-specific regulations and cybersecurity best practices. These assessments can give you clarity on your current security structure, enabling you to make informed decisions on how to allocate your resources and budget effectively to protect your assets.
Discover how a two-pronged approach in assessment services—security assessments and security compliance audits—ensures you can fulfil your privacy, security, and compliance benchmarks for your business and workplace to run seamlessly.
Our Assessment Services
In ensuring security, it is crucial to monitor and assess your internal and perimeter networks regularly. Analysis into your organisation’s security posture requires combing through all your systems and processes to identify vulnerabilities and risks, key factors in creating a remediation plan.
With Ricoh’s expertise and technological capabilities, you can effectively manage and safeguard your business by pinpointing hardware and software vulnerabilities. Identify areas in your business that require immediate attention and parts that are secure. By identifying potential weaknesses before they become targets, you have the opportunity to reinforce your cybersecurity and lower your risk to malicious threats.

Security Compliance Audit
Cybersecurity needs to be tailored to match your industry-specific compliance needs, as these are standards you must adhere to, regulated by not just industry benchmarks, but government requirements too. For a cybersecurity strategy to be truly effective, it needs an added proactive stance that considers ‘when’ an incident will occur rather than ‘if.’ Most effective strategies, after all, stress the importance of detecting, responding, and recovering from an inevitable breach rather than prevention alone.
With Ricoh’s expertise, you can implement a targeted approach to your security compliance audits. Conduct a comprehensive, relevant, and efficient audit and obtain actionable insights to improve your business’s security posture and protect your assets. Discover how an advantageous yet reasonably priced cybersecurity strategy that follows recognised industry certifications, like Cyber Essentials Plus, can make the difference between a minor incident and a major attack.
What Makes a Good
Cybersecurity today is about making tactical moves that align business goals and the risks involved. It needs to be flexible and adaptable to the ever-changing threat landscape. Regular reviews and updates are essential to ensure your cybersecurity strategy can protect your organisation’s assets and ensure business continuity.
How can you navigate vulnerabilities in your cybersecurity strategy? You can start by applying a comprehensive four-step approach to your security compliance audit.
Four Steps to Achieving a
Well-Defined Cybersecurity Setup
Review your cybersecurity setup
By reviewing your cybersecurity position, you can pinpoint high-risk areas as well as redundant tools that require shelving. You will also be able to understand the source of threats and find a fit-for-purpose solution to resolve them. Essentially, this helps identify quick wins for improvements and cyber resiliency.
We also encounter customers who renew outdated legacy security solutions which may have worked in the past, but not in today’s digital landscape. Most of these tools cannot respond to the latest emerging and zero-day threats. Gain a clearer picture of what works best for your company, make tactical moves, and spend budgets intelligently.
Layer up with cybersecurity
In order to prevent and mitigate cyberattacks, you must deploy a strategy with a range of technologies and solutions to cover every base. As threats evolve, so should bases. Similar to digital transformation, cybersecurity is also a continuous process. It involves monitoring, threat hunting, training, and cultural change.
Some solutions you can consider are:
- Perimeter security
- Endpoint security
- Back-up and disaster recovery
- Authentication protocols
- Real-time monitoring
- Threat intelligence.
Make testing a priority
Promoting a culture of continuous security testing is vital for any company undergoing digital change. Any new application rollout, changes to IT infrastructure, or merger or acquisition activity is always welcomed. However, a new activity could potentially expose new security vulnerabilities that threat actors can and will exploit unless these changes are proactively tested to ensure holes are identified and remediated.
We have seen this frequently happen with many organisations that cut corners because of pressure to implement transformation in a short amount of time. Although the aim was to enable their workforces to work from anywhere successfully, without proactive testing, many were victims of cybercrime due to poor implementation.
Scrutinise your resources
With the surge of cyberattacks over the recent years, many organisations rushed to employ skilled talent, leaving the market depleted of cybersecurity experts. According to the 2022 (ICS)2 Cybersecurity Workforce Study, the talent gap worldwide is at 3.4 million.
When planning your cybersecurity strategy, one pivotal factor is to review your resources. Identify where you need extra expertise and whether tactical outsourcing is a better option.
