Our Approach

STN IT Risk Assessment

The STN Risk Assessment is a true Residual Risk Assessment which informs our clients of the amount of risk or danger associated with a threat remaining after inherent risks have been reduced by risk controls.

Our IT Risk Assessment produces practical and actionable recommendations to reduce the greatest risks to your sensitive data and systems.

STN starts by defining the key concepts and information flows of your organization. Once this is completed, a comprehensive list of threats and vulnerability pairs are created and an initial risk assessment is conducted across four probability groups. This allows STN to develop control recommendations for each of threat-vulnerability pairs and reduce the impact of the threat on your organization. Finally, STN creates a true Residual Risk Assessment which informs you of the amount of risk or danger associated with a threat remaining after inherent risks have been reduced by risk controls.

Cybersecurity Portal

As an integral part of every solution, we developed the Cybersecurity Portal. It offers a secure repository and information resource with a dashboard for customers to track all projects, security assessments, and service tickets. The Cybersecurity Portal provides a single point for our clients to access security-related documentation and assets.

Through the Cybersecurity Portal, each client gets access to:
  • Secure document sharing
  • Escalation procedures and management
  • Trouble ticket tracking and status
  • Network diagrams
  • Firewall rules management
  • Support contracts
  • Archived Managed Security Service (MSS) reports


IT Security Gap Assessment

Our IT Gap Assessments follow a similar approach as the Risk Assessment.

We can provide a deeper technical, physical, and administrative analysis of your technical environment and the potentials for gaps in your security as they relate to FFIEC, HIPAA, ISO/IEC 27001, ISO 27702, FERC, and NIST frameworks.

“As a small Credit union, we have very limited staff and time. We need a tool that provides us with a quick and easy way of fulfilling our regulatory assessments. Not only does STN’s tool do the job, but it also allows us to compare against past assessments and reveal trends through our history. This has been very powerful in determining where we have been deficient and where we are excelling. STN’s FFIEC self assessment tool also provides us a quick and easy way to report to our board and our NCUA examiners on our improvements and progress.”

— Information Security Analyst

“STN’s new FFIEC tool simplifies the process of ascertaining risk levels, assessing an organization’s maturity level, and gauging progress needed and made over time. An accessible and intuitive interface makes it easy to use, STN has created a valuable tool for reporting and documenting FFIEC data as it pertains uniquely to your company.”
