Pen-Test and Vulnerability Assessment
Penetration testing or pen-test is a form of authorized cyber attack used to assess the security of a computer system. This includes the potential ways that unauthorized people could access system functions and data, which would provide a complete picture of the vulnerability. A full risk assessment is conducted before any action is taken. This assessment takes into account all possible risks and vulnerabilities that helps to decide which risks are the most important to address.
A vulnerability assessment penetration testing is known to be a process of defining, identifying, classifying, prioritizing, quantifying the vulnerabilities in a computer, network or cloud system. This information is then used to make decisions about which vulnerabilities to target first. A vulnerability assessment is a way of assessing the threats posed by potential hazards to the population and to infrastructure by achieving a more complete vulnerability analysis. These types of assessments often include services such as Internal, External, Web Application, Wi-Fi and Cloud Penetration Testing.
Digital Forensics and Incident Response
Digital Forensics (sometimes known as digital forensic science), encompass the investigation, examination, analysis, and recovery of material found in digital devices, often in relation to mobile devices and computer crime. Digital Forensics defines the process of
1) Identification of the incident,
2) Analysis of findings,
3) Documentation of report,
4) Presentation and
5) Prevention from further escalation of the cybercrime.
Incident Response involves computer emergency response teams (CERT) and/or computer security incident response teams (CSIRT) who respond to cybercrimes or emergency situations. Incident response services take further actions to follow a cyberattack of an organisation’s infrastructure. The approach aims to preserve any evidence in its most authentic form while carrying out a structured examination.
The term “security awareness” refers to a program designed to promote employees’ and employers’ knowledge of and attitudes toward protecting an organisation’s physical assets, particularly its information assets. Four phases can be distinguished in security awareness:
1) Identify what training needs most (e.g., phishing, spamming, vishing)
2) Creating a training program to raise security awareness
3) Introducing the program to the staff
4) Test and monitor the employees.
Security Awareness training involves topics such as: Phishing Attacks, Password Security and Authentication, Inside Threats, Remote working and many more. Employee compliance training is becoming more and more important as new legislation are implemented. New email laws resulting from GDPR compliance in the EU may necessitate retraining for many workers. Employees need to be informed about evolving laws, data security rules, and other matters. Keeping staff informed about the most recent policy changes by registering to our security awareness program.
Security Operations Center (SOC) as a Service, brings a best-in-class security operations center within the reach of every business, continuously monitoring and enhancing the security posture of the business while detecting, analyzing, responding to and preventing cybersecurity issues.
An organisation’s IT infrastructure, including its networks, devices, appliances, and information repositories, wherever those assets are located, is collected by a SOC, which serves as a hub or central command post. The rise of sophisticated threats highlights the importance of gathering context from various sources. In essence, the SOC serves as the point of correlation for all events logged within the monitored organisation. The SOC must choose how each of these occurrences will be handled and responded to.
An incident responder, level 1, level 2, or level 3 SOC analyst, threat hunter, and incident response manager are all be a part of the SOC, headed by a SOC manager. The customer receives relevant reports from the SOC managed team.
Endpoint security is the process of safeguarding against dangerous threats and online attacks on endpoints like desktops, laptops, servers, mobile phones, and tablets and many others. Businesses may defend against cyberattacks by using endpoint security software to secure employee work devices on a network or in the cloud. A network’s operating endpoints should all be monitored and secured as part of an endpoint security solution. This is accomplished by installing a centralized management console on the server or network of the business. These endpoint security products provide functions including vulnerable endpoint identification, multi-factor authentication, real-time monitoring, user behavioral analysis, and others to find and manage sophisticated security risks. The benefits of endpoint security include a unified platform, offers great visibility, supports dynamic updates, prevents data loss and even reduces the security costs in many different ways.
Data loss prevention (DLP) or Data leak prevention is the process of identifying and stopping sensitive data breaches, exfiltration, and unintentional deletion. DLP is used by businesses to safeguard and protect their data as well as to adhere to legal requirements.
The phrase “DLP” refers to protecting enterprises from both data loss and data leakage. Data loss is the term used to describe a situation in which crucial data is lost to the business, such as during a ransomware attack or deleted by mistake from an internal employee or employer. The goal of data loss prevention is to stop the unauthorized transmission of data across organisational boundaries. Users are prevented from sending sensitive or important information outside the company network by data loss prevention (DLP). The phrase refers to software tools that assist a network administrator in managing the data that users may send. A DLP is useful for identifying both external and internal threats. DLP software uses antivirus scans to find Trojans installed on endpoints and malware that enters a company’s network through email attachments to find outside attacks.
