IT security Services overview

Cybercrime is all around us. We hear about it every day. It is estimated to be one of the world’s largest illegal economies. Most cybercrime is perpetrated by well-organized, sophisticated cybercriminals. To think that “my organization is too small to be on the attacker’s radar”, or that “we don’t have anything worth hacking” is a misconception. Consequently, every organization must adopt IT Security measures to protect themselves from cybercriminals. Find our security services below:

Security Compliance

Security compliance standards (e.g. ISO 27001, GDPR)  set out guidelines regarding the improvement of data protection and information security management. In other words, security compliance drives business to practice due diligence in the protection of its digital assets. Part of this is to assess whether employees adhere to the policies regarding technology used, and, whether security controls that businesses have in place to protect their operations are sufficient.

Companies that are compliant with these standards have evolving security strategies for their data and assets. This reduces risks (e.g. data breach), saves time and cost, and continuously evaluates and identifies gaps in security.

Vulnerability Assessment

Vulnerability assessment is the practice of making in-depth assessments of computers, networks, and (web) applications to discover known flaws and weaknesses. Vulnerability scanning is a non-destructive form of testing that provides immediate feedback on the health and security of a network. It uses various techniques to identify and classify pre-existing security gaps in the specified environment. There are three types of vulnerability scanning: white-box (authenticated), grey-box, and black-box (unauthenticated). The white-box mode allows the scanner to access and verify the network directly using provided system credentials. Black-box mimics the hacking environment through unauthenticated scanning.

Assessing vulnerabilities in this way provides valuable insights into potential security issues within your digital environment.

Penetration Testing

Penetration testing (pentest)  is the next phase following the vulnerability assessment. It is a manual investigation of reported vulnerabilities. The ‘pentester’ attempts  to exploit  these vulnerabilities whit in the environment. In other words, pentesting is an authorized simulated cyberattack on an operating computer system, network, or application to evaluate its level of security. It provides assurance to companies about the security of their existing system by duplicating attempted breaches of security, using the same tools and techniques hackers might employ.

Security Academy

For a company, clear policy, good technology, and regular assessment are still not enough to guarantee security as 95% of breaches are linked to human error. Employees must be made aware of cyber threats and be provided with knowledge as to how to avoid insecure  practices.  Featuring tailor-made courses, our cyber-security academy initiates knowledge exchange and development for businesses. Security awareness is a continuous process which provides effective and sustainable solutions for your business against potential cyber threats.

Cybersecurity training, creates awareness amongst employees and results in more robust security and greater digital resilience for your company.

Phishing Simulation

Phishing is a type of hacking where an attacker sends an email under the pretense of a legitimate email message from a person or company you trust such as a colleague, a customer, or a third party company such as Google. Phishing attacks can result in the loss of confidential information after only a single click. Phishing is becoming more and more sophisticated. It often features fake attacks, such as malware or viruses and includes links and attachments for (so-called) remedial steps; it also often requests personal data. By launching a targeted phishing simulation, we can evaluate your company’s response to phishing attacks and provide recommendations to improve your resistance to phishing.

Online Reputation

The Dark Web (the black market of the Internet) is an anonymous, hidden area of the internet. It features market place for selling/buying company data, and also their customers’ data. Therefore, preventing, -or at least limiting the damage of these cyber-attacks is important because it discredits companies or even worse, they incur fines as a result of GDPR violation.

Your online reputation is not exclusively linked to the Dark Web. However, it can be affected by malicious activities related to the websites or public IPs belonging to your company. This could be the result of unauthorized access by a hacker or an employee’s error. Whatever the case is, it can seriously damage the online reputation of any company and can result in expensive consequences relating to the SEO-ranking of the company’s websites.
