Our Cyber Security Value Proposition
We help CIOs and CISOs to secure the integrity, privacy, and availability of information technology systems and data through:
1. Implementation of critical security controls, the top 4 of these prevent 85% of known attacks.
2. Defensive cyber security awareness training. 95% of all security incidents involve human error.
3. Incident response strategy & planning to limit attack damage, to reduce recovery time and costs.
4. Indicators of compromise assessment for timely detection of attacks to limit damage.
1. Improved compliance with privacy laws and regulations to reduce financial loss and liability.
2. Reduced data breach recovery and remediation costs.
3. Reduced intellectual property losses.
4. Increased reliability of information.
5. Reduced business disruptions from cyber attacks.
Importance of Critical Security Controls Implementation
The goal of the Critical Controls is to protect critical assets, infrastructure, and information by strengthening your organization's defensive posture through continuous, automated protection and monitoring of your sensitive IT infrastructure to reduce compromises, minimize the need for recovery efforts, and lower associated costs.
The strength of the Critical Controls is that they reflect the combined knowledge of actual attacks and effective defenses of experts in the many organizations that have exclusive and deep knowledge about current threats. The Critical Controls are the most effective and specific set of technical measures available to detect, prevent, and mitigate damage from the most common and damaging cyber attacks.
According to study performed by Australian Defence Signals Directorate, at least 85% of the targeted cyber intrusions could be prevented by implementing the top 4 critical controls.
Importance of Defensive Cyber Security Awareness Training
People are the weakest link in cyber security defenses. 95% of all security incidents involve human error. Our defensive cyber security awareness training program helps to mitigate the human factor risk in cyber security.
Our defensive cyber security training is a form of training for employees, contractors, and service providers that goes beyond mastery of the company information security policies and procedures, and the basic information security awareness. Its aim is to reduce the risk of system and data compromise by anticipating dangerous situations, being alert to unusual conditions, and prompt reporting of potential attacks.
This is achieved through adherence to a variety of general security guidelines, such as not clicking links and attachments on suspicious emails and keeping passwords confidential, as well as the practice of other specific techniques to thwart social engineering and other actions that compromise system security.
We help you to implement, develop metrics to measure the effectiveness of the program, test the effectiveness of the training program to identify users who need further training or management intervention to reduce security risks.
The training program is scalable to fit the needs of small and large organizations. We also customize the delivery of the training to suite customer preferences, and we provide educational materials and awareness posters that can be placed in break rooms and other suitable locations.
Importance of Incident Response Strategy & Planning
A comprehensive incident response strategy and planning is important to limit cyber attack damage, and reduce recovery time and costs. We leverage our in-depth understanding of how cyber attackers compromise a network host and use it to pivot to other hosts through privilege escalation and compromised domain credentials, and how attackers hide malware in compromised hosts to evade detection, to develop a sound incident response strategy and a incident response plan.
A poor incident response strategy and response plan can tip the attackers to destroy data, accelerate data exfiltration, and hide their tracks, and increase recovery time and cost. A partial recovery of some systems could be a waste of time and money since most attacker malware on one compromised host is usually configured to re-infect the clean hosts automatically. This is why it is important to determine the extent of attack before initiating the recovery phase of your incident response plan.
Importance of Indicators of Compromise Assessment
There are two key objectives of performing indicators of compromise assessment: First, to detect attacks at an early stage to limit the spread of the attack to other network hosts. Secondly, to determine the extent of an attack to help in the scoping of the recovery effort and in determining the extent of damage once a compromise had been confirmed.
Indicators of compromise assessments are based on the malware paradox - malware can hide, but it must run. This enables us to identify and fingerprint potential malware running in infected network hosts. Once confirmed to be malware, we then able scan other network hosts for the fingerprinted malware to determine the extent of the malware propagation.
