Security Practice Methodology

The EQ security practice methodology is based off of a blend of industry standard frameworks from many verticals including Healthcare, Manufacturing, Finance and Federal.


A security program is a continuous cycle. EQ's interpretation of this cycle is shown below:

Phase 1

Security Assessment

Working collaboratively with our client, this phase provides a valuable insight to an organization's security posture and risk temperament. It includes vulnerability scanning. The result of this phase is a high-level proposed road map and recommendations for remediation.

Phase 2


A security strategy is decided upon, policies and procedures are drafted, control frameworks are selected and solutions are designed. This is all based on the organization's needs and risk tolerance as the outcome of the security assessment.

Phase 3


Policies and procedures and any upgrading of the infrastructure or controls is completed. Our Project Management Office (PMO) assures the projects are completed on-time, on-budget and with high quality.

Phase 4


A management and security support plan is put into place according to the customer's unique requirements and technology. Our Security Operations Center (SOC) is ready to manage your alerts with your incident response plan handy. Network Penetration Testing and Vulnerability Scanning will help you validate your controls and maintain compliance.
