Organizations are under constant Cyber-Attack
To stop a hacker, one needs to think like one and this is what ethical hacking is all about. Ethical hackers also perform security tasks like hackers; however, it is to protect the computers and networks of an organization. They have the permission to hack organization’s network in order to perform tests that keep it safe from illegal hacking. Ethical hackers help in improving the security of systems in organizations.
Designed to achieve a specific, attacker-simulated goal and should be requested by customers who are already at their desired security posture.
The deliverable for a penetration test is a report of how security was breached in order to reach the agreed-upon goal and often how to remediate.
- Customer Maturity Level: High. The client believes their defenses to be strong, and wants to test that assertion.
- Goal: Determine whether a mature security posture can withstand an intrusion attempt from an advanced attacker with a specific goal.
- Focus: Depth over breadth.
Designed to yield a prioritized list of vulnerabilities and are generally for clients who already understand they are not where they want to be in terms of security. The customer already knows they have issues and simply need help identifying and prioritizing them. The more issues identified the better, so naturally a white box approach should be embraced when possible. The deliverable for the assessment is, most importantly, a prioritized list of discovered vulnerabilities and often how to remediate.
- Customer Maturity Level: Low to Medium. Usually requested by customers who already know they have issues, and need help getting started.
- Goal: Attain a prioritized list of vulnerabilities in the environment so that remediation can occur.
- Focus: Breadth over depth.
Technology cannot protect a company against an attack directed at its people to psychologic manipulation of people into performing actions or divulging confidential information. Our team will determine how vulnerable you are to a social engineering attack with the potential to breach your network, obtain your intellectual property, or even gain physical access to your site. How malicious social engineering will breach your company by mimicking their attacks.
- Vhising (phone elicitation)
- Onsite impersonating
The purpose of ethical hacking is to evaluate the security of a network or system's infrastructure. It entails finding and attempting to exploit any vulnerabilities to determine whether unauthorized access or other malicious activities are possible. Vulnerabilities tend to be found in poor or improper system configuration, known and unknown hardware or software flaws, and operational weaknesses in process or technical countermeasures. It has become a sizable sub-industry within the information security market and has expanded to also cover the physical and human elements of an organization's defenses. A successful test doesn't necessarily mean a network or system is 100% secure, but it should be able to withstand automated attacks and unskilled hackers.
OSINT stands for Open Source Intelligence techniques are the methods and tools used to acquire information that is widely available and useful for supporting intelligence analyst. The sources include, information obtained from the media (newspapers, radio, television, etc.), professional and academic records (papers, conferences, professional associations, etc.), and public data (government reports, demographics, hearings, speeches, etc.
OSINT services can :
- Identify risks to reputation
- Suppliers with criminal or corrupt ties
- CEO’s that needs to know more about the people they’ll be meeting with. We can help them be more effective and productive in building solid interpersonal and professional relations
- Asset protection.
- Customer satisfaction analysis Companies can leverage customer feedback, as well as market intelligence and signals from external sources to better understand the needs of customers and changes in the marketplace.
Networks have evolved from being a flat network where there were only a handful of elements. Everything was connected—to a more complex design where there are a lot more technologies, such as cloud, wireless, remote users, VPN, IoT, mobile devices, and so on. In spite of all the evolution that has occurred, one factor that has been constant is the need for network monitoring. Monitoring allows network admins to know what is going on in their network, be it with their WAN, LAN, VoIP, MPLS, and other connections or the state of various network elements or nodes such as the access, distribution and core switches, routers, firewalls, servers, client systems and so on.
We support to setup a tailor made Incident Response Plan for your organization. Incident response plans provide instructions for responding to a number of potential scenarios, including
- data breaches,
- denial of services/ distributed denial of service attacks,
- firewall breaches,
- virus or malware threats
- insider threats.
Without an incident response plan in place, organizations may either not detect the attack in the first place, or not follow proper protocol to contain the threat and recover from it when a breach is detected.
