Penetration testing

Security breaches and service interruptions are costly.
Security breaches and any ensuing interruptions in the performance of services or applications can result in direct financial losses, threaten an organization’s reputation, erode customer loyalty, attract negative press and invite significant fines and penalties.
It is impossible to safeguard all information, all the time. 
Organizations have sought to prevent breaches by installing and maintaining layers of defensive security mechanisms, including user access controls, cryptography, IPS, IDS and firewalls. However, continued adoption of new technologies, including some of these measures, has made it even harder to find and eliminate all of an organizations’ vulnerabilities and protect against potential security incidents.
Penetration-testing identifies and prioritizes security risks.
Pen-testing evaluates an organization’s ability to protect its networks, applications, endpoints and users from attempts to circumvent its security controls to gain access to protected assets.

Intelligently manage vulnerabilities

Pen-tests provide detailed information on actual, exploitable security threats. Performing a penetration test can proactively identify which vulnerabilities are more critical, which are less significant and which are false positives. This allows an organization to more intelligently prioritize remediation and allocate security resources more effectively.

Avoid the cost of network downtime

Recovering from a security breach can cost an organization millions of dollars in IT remediation efforts, customer protection and retention programs, legal activities and more.

Meet regulatory requirements and avoid fines

The detailed reports that pen-tests generate can help organizations avoid significant fines for non-compliance and allow them to illustrate ongoing due diligence in assessors and auditors.

Preserve brand value and customer loyalty

Every single incident of compromised customer data can be costly in terms of both negatively affecting sales and tarnishing an organization’s public image. Penetration tests help avoid data incidents that put your organization’s reputation and trustworthiness in jeopardy.

WEB APP SECURITY ASSESSMENT

Architecture review & Technical audit

A network security audit is part of an overall information systems audit framework and includes application software audit, operation system audit, and business audit.

Our Security Audits go above and beyond industry-accepted standards such as BS7799, CoBIT, and industry-specific standards. The auditing approach is designed to cover all aspects of security: People, Processes and Technology. Our consultants are certified professionals: CISSP, CISA, ISO-27001 LA.

A thorough network security audit depends on two aspects. The first aspect being static data, such as protocols used, system definitions, password rules, firewall definitions and the like. The second aspect of this kind of data security software deals with the activities like modifications of files, transfer of files, access to databases and user logs.

Design assurance

Advanced design assurance by reviewing the network and related security controls in a comprehensive and effective manner

Identify targets

Findings can be used to identify other necessary assurance activities and to focus downstream activities on relevant targets for large scale (enterprise) level applications

Addresses deficiencies

Addresses network security deficiencies that may negatively impact the security of the systems, databases, and applications that are dependent upon said network.

ARCHITECURE REVIEW

& TECHNICAL AUDIT

Code review

  • PREPARATION FOR CODE REVIEW

    Conducting a thorough study of the application in order to create a comprehensive threat profile.

  • IN-DEPTH ANALYSIS

    Evaluation of the entire code layout of the application including areas that wouldn’t be analyzed in an application
    security test such as entry points for different inputs, internal interfaces and integrations, data handling and
    validation logic and the use of external APIs and frameworks.

  • OVERCOME LIMITATIONS

    Uncover vulnerabilities and detect attack surfaces that automated code scans miss using security code
    reviews. Detects weak algorithms, identifies design flaws, finds insecure configurations and spots insecure
    coding practices.

  • GENERATE REPORTS

    Produces security code review reports that lists strengths and weaknesses with detailed findings that include precise code based solutions and fixes.

  • COMPREHENSIVE SOLUTIONS

    Secures sensitive data and suggests precise solutions including code level suggestions. Also triggers more exhaustive checks to find and negate vulnerabilities.

  • COMPLIANCE STANDARDS

    Satisfy industry regulations and compliance standards including PCI DSS standards.

ASSURANCE SERVICES

Internal audit

Every new technology introduces new risks. New applications, cloud solutions, mobile devices, third party integrations, even new employees, all raise the risk of security vulnerability and increase the complexity of maintaining compliance.

We bring insight and solutions to mitigate these risks and turn them to opportunities for your organization to grow and innovate. We apply a disciplined, process-driven approach to create comprehensive audits, assessments and reports which determine if your IT environment is secure, compliant and operating optimally.

Risk assessments, internal audits and control remediation go deep into the efficiency and effectiveness of internal control structures, teams and processes.

Our holistic, tailored approach prepares clients to address rigorous security regulations inherent in IT environments. We will help you remain compliant, able to withstand stakeholder scrutiny and poised for a thriving future.

INTERNAL AUDIT

Policy & procedural development

A company struggling to standardize policies and procedures only leaves themselves vulnerable to attack. Their practices will be inconsistent, insecure, ineffective, and noncompliant. Inadequate documentation presents a big risk to many organizations. It is important to ensure documentation enforces security best practices, complies with relevant regulations, reflects the environment, and supports business processes.

We will review existing policies and procedures and interview personnel to determine a baseline. We will then develop templates for security policies, procedures, and standards necessary to meet regulation compliance or industry best practices. These policies and procedures are tailored specifically to your organization and will ensure audits can be passed and employees know their roles and responsibilities. This streamlines efforts and ensures consistency across the organization.

ISO-27001 & PCI-DSS consulting

Gap assessment

Initial certification begins with a thorough understanding of your organization’s posture, an assessment of the current information security state of your organization against ISO 27001 and/or PCI-DSS standards thereby defining the scope.

Pre-audit assessment

Our consulting team conducts an internal audit against the ISO 27001 and/or PCI-DSS standard and develops a corrective action report for the closure of the audit findings. We conclude with a confirmation of organization readiness for the external certification.

Certification support

Identify and select an external certification body, co-ordinate with certification auditors, as well as assist in the certification audit by providing all required documents and evidence for the auditor. We also provide full support to maintain your ISMS performance.

Training & implementation support

We conduct awareness sessions for all employees in the scope of the certification. We train the stakeholders who are responsible for the ISMS implementation on the defined ISMS framework. We also provide on-going support for the implementation team and advisory services.

Risk Assessment

An information asset register is developed to reduce asset duplication, encourage greater efficiency and spot any potential risks. Risk assessment activities are used to identify and evaluate all possible security threats and vulnerabilities in the system before defining the risk appetite of the organization to plan for risk mitigation or treatment actions.

ISMS Framework Development

We develop the policies and procedures for ISMS (Information Security Management System) implementation. This includes the definition of governance structure for the organization’s ISMS, developing the required process to support the ISMS implementation including policies and procedures and performance metrics to evaluate the ISMS implementation.
