Corporations are faced with the unenviable task of trying to defend their networks against various types of intrusive attacks. While its true that many companies are vulnerable, weekly news of the next breach occurs, yet the decision makers think...
“We’re just a small firm. Who cares enough about our information to steal it.”
“We don’t have any information that’s valuable enough to steal.”
“Security policy? We just installed a new firewall so we’re good.”
“Employees (insiders) don’t steal.”
“Competitors (outsiders) can’t steal – We have a firewall!”
Technology environments have gotten increasingly complex and it is harder than ever to watch over your entire infrastructure. Having an independent team of experts audit your security is a valuable tool that is guaranteed to uncover vulnerabilities and greatly increase your level of security.

The frequency of threats and incidents perpetrated by hackers as well as disgruntled employees looking to hurt their employers, continues to increase at exponential rates. Unfortunately, regardless of the size of an organization, the security of internal trusted networks and external network access points has not often been given the attention it deserves. Many companies are ill prepared and not well protected against these damaging and costly threats.
Internal network security is only part of the picture, and securing internal and external networks is a first step. For complete protection, web applications and internal applications need to be secure. Externally accessible applications such as web sites, represent a large threat. Application development typically includes functional and performance testing, but rarely security testing. For that reason, applications should be tested by security experts.
Social engineering techniques which can be used in an attempt to elicit sensitive company and/or IT information that could be utilized in a network attack.
These techniques gauge the education of security awareness of the staff and the vulnerabilities from the lack of security education. These techniques may include pretext phone calls and site visits--- such as posing as vendors, employees, IT support personnel, clients, etc.
We believe that cyber security is NOT an IT issue, but a business risk issue!
