Assessments are typically the starting point to any major initiative. Different assessments are meant for different situations contingent on WHY you are getting one. Understanding WHEN to use each kind of assessment is commonly misunderstood and sometimes misused. At the end of the day, blindly jumping into a big cybersecurity initiative like compliance or framework adoption without proper assessments can waste a lot of time and money. We recommend you use assessments properly to make accurate and smart decisions.
