The Aveshka team is comprised of ERM professionals with decades of experience in assessing, mitigating, and responding to risk. Our team has experience in protecting some of the nation’s most high-profile and high-risk targets such as the Pentagon and the Department of Homeland Security. We can help protect your business using the same techniques we honed through our years of experience helping our high-risk clients.

Aveshka offers a range of Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) services to help organizations prepare, defend, and respond to risks that threaten to disrupt operations, expose sensitive data, or endanger the survival of the organization. Business threats such as natural disasters, malicious insiders, hackers, and regulatory compliance are just a few of the concerns that without specific planning and interventions can lead to significant financial loss due to property/infrastructure damage, a decline in consumer confidence, data loss, theft, or fines. Unfortunately, many businesses are not prepared to manage these threats and only find out too late they were not prepared. When facing threats, it is important to understand the organizational risks they pose and how to mitigate these risks through proper planning and controls.

Are You Ready?™ The possibility of disasters, cyber-attacks, and insider threats are ever present. Aveshka’s response to mitigate organizational risk is holistic, which addresses risk in all aspects of its lifecycle and does not merely focus on individual stages, such as after a risk has already been realized.

Chance Favors the Prepared Mind

Organizations are unable to control the myriad of threats they face. They can only control how they prepare and respond to these threats. Aveshka can assist organizations in identifying threats, assessing vulnerabilities, and calculating the risk posed to the organization with the goal of mitigating risk to acceptable levels.



Regardless of its size, every organization should conduct a risk assessment and have an actionable plan of how it intends to mitigate risks. The foundation to managing risks is to first understand the risk and then to make informed choices of how to mitigate the risks. Aveshka can help organizations conduct risk assessments and then implement cost effective controls to protect the organization.

Our security experts have worked in and managed some of the nation’s largest security operations centers and have handled some of the most complex cybersecurity investigations.

Virtual CISO (vCISO)

Many organizations cannot afford to hire an expert CISO. With Aveshka’s vCISO we can fill this role temporally or permanently, advising your organization how to create and maintain a robust security plan.

Scenario Development

Scenario Development, to include table top exercises, allow an organization to simulate disasters before they happen, allowing your organization to run a mock exercise and see how your current disaster plan and employees will perform in a crisis. These table top exercises allow you to identify gaps in your plan and to provide valuable training to employees before disaster strikes.

Our experts will work with your organization to create your bespoke security assessment to help you manage your risk. Some of the services we offer include: • Penetration Testing • Vulnerability Scanning • Cyber Supply Chain • Phishing Assessment • Data Breach Readiness Review • Compromise Assessment • Workplace Violence Assessment • Physical Security Assessment • Regulatory Compliance Assessment (SOX, PCI, ISO 27XX, NIST, etc.)
