Regulation S-P recommends that a firm tests their cyber security controls, at least annually. Testing should be designed to assess and analyze internal and external threats so that controls can be updated to meet the needs of an ever evolving data security environment. Using a third-party eliminates bias in the design and maintenance of controls and infrastructure, yielding a truly independent assessment and ensuring current best practice procedures and tools.
