Our unique blend of education, training and planning prepares your employees to spot common signs of network attacks.

We Provide Full-Range of Cybersecurity Services

Security Awareness Training

Educate employees about the importance of information security and how to protect sensitive information from unauthorized access or theft. Through a mix of online training, classroom work and simulations, we can help increase your employees’ knowledge about security threats, policies, and best practices, and motivate them to take an active role in protecting the organization’s information and assets. Popular topics include:

  • Social engineering and phishing
  • Password management
  • Mobile device security
  • Physical security
  • Incident response
  • Compliance

Antivirus & Malware Security

Antivirus and malware security services help protect computer systems and networks from malware, including viruses, worms, Trojan horses, and ransomware. Different features often include:

  • Real-time scanning
  • Signature-based detection
  • Behavior-based detection
  • Cloud-based protection
  • Automatic updates
  • Remote management

Because no single solution can provide complete protection against all types of malware, we recommend having multiple, updated layers of security in place to improve effectiveness. Regular security audits or penetration testing can also help identify weak spots in your systems.

Ransomware Prevention

Ransomware is a type of malware that encrypts a victim’s files, making them inaccessible until a ransom is paid to the attacker. To prevent ransomware attacks, there are several best practices that organizations can implement:

  • Keep software and operating systems updated
  • Use endpoint protection
  • Limit user permissions
  • Back up data
  • Employee education
  • Monitor network traffic

It’s important to note that no single solution can provide complete protection against ransomware and a combination of these prevention methodologies is the best approach.

Phishing Prevention

Phishing is a type of social engineering attack that uses emails, text messages, or phone calls to trick individuals into providing sensitive information, such as login credentials or financial information. To prevent phishing attacks, organizations can implement several best practices:

  • Employee education
  • Spam filters
  • Email authentication
  • URL scanning
  • Two-factor authentication
  • Monitor network traffic
  • Simulated phishing exercises

Phishing attempts are becoming more and more sophisticated, so organizations should keep their anti-phishing measures updated and regularly review them. Employees should also be encouraged to report any suspicious emails or phone calls to the IT or security department.

Security Policy Assessments

A security policy assessment evaluates an organization’s information security policies and procedures to ensure they are adequate to protect sensitive information and assets from unauthorized access or theft. The goal of a security policy assessment is to identify any weaknesses or gaps in the organization’s security posture and to provide recommendations for improvement. Some common steps involved include:

  • Reviewing existing policies
  • Interviewing staff
  • Testing the security controls
  • Identifying vulnerabilities
  • Providing recommendations

Security policy assessments should be conducted regularly as the threat landscape is constantly changing, and the organization’s security posture should be updated accordingly. Assessments should also be performed by a qualified and independent third party in order to have a neutral and objective point of view.

Disaster Recovery Planning

An IT disaster recovery plan (DRP) is a documented process for restoring normal business operations after a disaster or disruption. It includes procedures for backing up and restoring critical data, procedures for recovering hardware and software systems, and procedures for ensuring personnel and resources are available to carry out the plan. An IT DRP minimizes the impact of a disruption on the organization’s operations and ensures critical functions can resume as quickly as possible. The development and testing of a DRP is an important aspect of a comprehensive risk management strategy.

Business Continuity Planning

Business continuity planning (BCP) is the process of creating a system of prevention and recovery from potential threats to an organization’s operations. BCP ensures critical business functions can continue during and after an incident such as a natural disaster, cyber-attack, or other disruptive event. IT BCP includes:

  • Identifying critical systems and processes
  • Risk assessment
  • Developing a plan
  • Testing and updating the plan
  • Training employees

BCP is often integrated with a Disaster Recovery Plan (DRP) to have a comprehensive approach to minimize the impact of a disruption on the organization’s operations and to ensure critical functions can be resumed as quickly as possible.

Penetration Testing and Vulnerability Assessment

Penetration testing (often called “pen testing”) and vulnerability assessment is a simulated cyber attack on a computer system, network, or web application to evaluate the security of the system. It is a proactive method of testing the organization’s defenses by attempting to identify weaknesses before they can be exploited by attackers.

There are two primary types of penetration testing:

  • External testing (website or public-facing network)
  • Internal testing (private intranet or internal servers)

There are also two primary types of vulnerability assessments:

  • Network vulnerability assessment (network infrastructure, such as routers, switches, and firewalls)
  • Application vulnerability assessment (web applications, such as SQL injection, cross-site scripting, and file inclusion)

Then, the process of testing usually follows these steps:

  • Reconnaissance
  • Vulnerability scanning
  • Manual testing
  • Exploitation
  • Reporting

Penetration testing should be performed by experienced and qualified professionals, as it can cause damage to systems if not done properly. It should also be done with the proper authorization and with a scope that has been agreed upon. Remember, penetration testing is not a one-time event, and should be performed regularly to ensure that the organization’s defenses are up-to-date.
