Methodology

Regulations are constantly evolving, and new cybersecurity threats are materializing all the time. Without a solid foundation of processes, technology, and philosophy, security companies can’t keep up.

At Rivial, we use our decades of experience, established frameworks, and advanced software tools to continuously update our services, keeping you at the vanguard of information security.

Experience

Rivial knows what financial institutions need because we’ve stood where you stand — Randy Lindberg, Rivial’s founder, was formerly in charge of information security for a $4 billion bank. We’ve helped hundreds of institutions improve their security, and we continue to use every experience to optimize future engagements.

Framework

Our approach is based on the NIST 800-30 guide, considered the gold standard in risk assessment methodologies. Rivial assessments combine elements of the NIST framework with cutting-edge techniques to deliver effective, actionable suggestions quickly and with minimal friction.

Tools

Truly modern IT audits and risk assessments can’t be accomplished with spreadsheets and checklists. Rivial leverages custom GRC software to create more comprehensive and efficient processes. Our toolbox also includes penetration testing technology and social engineering skills designed to accurately gauge an organization’s vulnerability.

Software

Rivial audits and risk assessments are technology-driven experiences. We’ve partnered with Quantivate, a leading GRC software provider, to develop a suite of tools specifically designed for the financial industry.
