In today's ever-changing world of cyber security, many companies rely on the expertise of an IT consultant to advise them on important IT decisions and how to use information technology in order to meet their business objectives. In addition to securing networks and providing cyber security advice, an IT consultant's job is to manage and administer IT systems for their clients.
Cyber security is all about managing, controlling and mitigating risk
to your organization’s critical assets.
Two methods of cyber security risk management are through IT Risk Assessments and Network Assessments.
As a foundation to your IT security strategy, an IT risk assessment is a review of the possible threats your organization faces. It helps you understand what events can negatively affect your organization and what security gaps pose a threat to your critical information. In many industries, an IT risk assessment is also a requirement for compliance.
A network assessment is an overview of what you currently have in your network, from servers to switches to devices and their connectivity.

Network assessments help you understand and strengthen your weak defenses.
