Strengthen your cyber defense and reduce risk.
SECURITY PROGRAM DEVELOPMENT
Establishing a security program for your organization will provide a roadmap for effective security management practices and controls. We can help you align the security program with your organizational objectives, develop the required security policies and procedures, and implement cost-effective security solutions to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of your information. Additionally, we can help your organization adopt the popular NIST Cybersecurity Framework and/or achieve internationally recognized information security management certifications (e.g., ISO 27001).
Risk assessments are used to identify, estimate, and prioritize the risks to organizational operations and assets that may result from the operation and use of information systems. The purpose of risk assessments is to inform senior management and support risk responses by identifying potential threats and vulnerabilities, the likelihood that they will occur, and the potential impact to your organization. We can help you conduct a comprehensive risk assessment and develop an appropriate strategy to remediate or mitigate the identified risks, threats, and vulnerabilities.
We are well versed in a variety of compliance mandates and can help you meet your regulatory compliance needs. Our areas of expertise include, but are not limited to, the following:
Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) / Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA)
Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)
Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS)
EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA)
A penetration test can help you determine if a potential attacker could gain unauthorized access to your network. It can test your defenses and potentially identify serious gaps in your security controls. Each penetration test is customized to suit the needs of our client and is conducted by a certified ethical hacker. At the end of the process, we will provide you with a detailed report and specific recommendations to help you reduce your attack surface.
While cloud providers are responsible for the security of their cloud infrastructure (e.g., data center), they are not responsible for the security of your data. We can help you understand your shared responsibility and ensure that your cloud environment is securely configured and protected with appropriate security controls. Our areas of expertise include, but are not limited to, the following:
Amazon Web Services
Google Cloud Platform
Software vulnerabilities exist due to insecure coding practices and poorly integrated security requirements. Attackers often exploit these vulnerabilities to gain unauthorized access to sensitive information. We can help you understand the most critical security risks and how to best address them during your software development efforts. Additionally, we can conduct both manual and automated testing to determine if your application contains vulnerabilities.
Implement cost-effective security solutions.
IDENTITY AND ACCESS MANAGEMENT
There are many identity and access management solutions on the market today. We can help you identify the solution that best fits your business needs, provides strong authentication, and empowers users to securely access their data wherever they are. Additionally, we can ensure that the solution provides auditing and reporting capabilities to ease the burden of regulatory compliance.
Encryption is one of the most popular methods to protect sensitive data. Once the data is encrypted, it can only be accessed by someone who possesses the secret key. Equally important are regular data backups to ensure that you can recover your data when it has been lost due to ransomware, theft, or a natural disaster. We can help you implement an appropriate strategy to ensure that your sensitive data is protected from a myriad of cyber threats.
Endpoint devices such as laptops, desktops, servers, and mobile phones all need to be protected from a wide range of threats. The most common way to defend endpoint devices is by employing an anti-virus solution. Full disk encryption software should also be implemented to prevent the loss of sensitive information, especially from lost or stolen devices. We can help you identify the solution that best fits your business needs and protects all your devices from sophisticated threats and unauthorized access.
Email is one of the most popular methods for attackers to spread malware, spam, and phishing attacks. We can help ensure that you are equipped with the right solution to detect and block sophisticated email threats. Additionally, we can conduct a phishing assessment to identify your most vulnerable users and reduce their susceptibility to phishing attacks. Equally important is ensuring that your organization utilizes email encryption to protect sensitive content and attachments from unauthorized access.
NETWORK SECURITY AND MONITORING
Network security starts with the secure configuration of your network devices. It is also important to properly segment your network to prevent the spread of attacks. Additionally, network traffic needs to be properly controlled and monitored for both network intrusions and the exfiltration of sensitive information. We can help you secure your network and implement the right solutions to prevent and/or detect attacks. Our areas of expertise include, but are not limited to, the following:
Intrusion Prevention System (IPS)
Security Information and Event Management (SIEM)
Data Loss Prevention (DLP)
Be prepared to respond to security incidents.
SECURITY AWARENESS TRAINING
Humans are still the weakest link in cybersecurity. Therefore, it is very important to ensure that your employees are formally educated about cyber threats and safe internet browsing. We can provide security awareness training to your employees either in person at your business location or virtually online. Our training course will cover a variety of topics, such as email security, social engineering, web security, data protection, and wireless security.
Organizations must have an incident response plan in place to properly prepare for and address security incidents. We can help you develop and document an incident response plan and provide the necessary training to ensure successful execution. If you are breached, we can help you remediate the breach and resume operations as soon as possible. Once the threat is completely eradicated, we will conduct a post-incident meeting to review the details of the breach and the steps you should take to strengthen your cyber defense.
BUSINESS CONTINUITY/DISASTER RECOVERY PLANNING
To ensure that essential business functions can continue during and after a disruptive event, proper business continuity and disaster recovery planning must take place. We can help your organization develop an effective strategy to deal with various disruptive events (e.g., cyber attack, human error, natural disaster). In addition, we can ensure that your employees understand their roles and responsibilities and are well trained in how to deal with emergency situations.
Digital forensics is the process of collecting, preserving, and analyzing digital evidence in a way that is legally admissible in court. Today, it is used to investigate a wide range of computer-related crimes, including intellectual property theft, industrial espionage, fraud, forgery, employment disputes, and misuse of computer resources in the workplace. Whatever the reason is, we can apply our digital investigative techniques to collect factual evidence and help you prove your case. Our areas of expertise include, but are not limited to, the following:
