Measuring Your Offensive Security Maturity:

Perfect Your Processes



Without mature processes, even the best cyber teams and most advanced technologies are no match for bad actors. Clearly defined goals and documented processes — followed consistently — are necessary to truly make and demonstrate progress. While not the most exciting aspect of program building, creating and managing good processes across your security team is vital in maturing your program and its capabilities.

Echelon Risk + Cyber and PlexTrac are pleased to present part three of our webinar series diving into the key areas of your offensive security strategy: people, process, and technology. This installment will focus on your processes — an important but often overlooked element of an organization’s security posture.

We’ll discuss the most important decisions your security team must make relating to processes, including

  • Documenting your strategy, mission, and goals
  • Aligning a strategic vision to an actionable plan
  • Executing on processes consistently through tooling and training
  • Building in checkpoints and evaluation

Our experts in offensive security will share tips on how to create a strong foundation on which your program can build by strengthening and standardizing your processes to fight back against the growing complexity of security threats.

Join us live on Zoom on Tuesday, January 17th at 10am PT / 1pm ET. See you there!
