PKI Assessment


"The concept of risk is built around the fact that a lot of things can leave you open to a problem and often you don’t even know what these things are."

Encryption Consulting has their own custom framework for doing a Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) Assessment for a customer based on NIST, PKI & HSM best practices. Every area of the customer’s PKI is evaluated and assigned a risk rating. This enables organizations to identify high risk components and prioritize remediation efforts. The scorecard from Encryption Consulting is an invaluable tool to security teams trying to plug gaps with a limited budget.

Below are the objectives of the PKI Assessment.

We at Encryption Consulting strive to follow every objective on every engagement:

  • Understand the current state of PKI systems, processes, and use cases across the organization
  • Assess the maturity of the PKI environment against a defined framework and comparative organizations
  • Provide observations and recommendations regarding current and future PKI initiatives to help achieve Customer’ desired future state capabilities
