Key Benefits & Features Of Our
Cyber Security Consulting Services
Once we have customised the tools specific to the engagement we set out to identify cyber security threats which actually or potentially impact your organisation. The number of identified vulnerabilities is directly related to the duration of the test, and some other factors like [good/poor] network connectivity, active web application firewalls, application instability, and system changes during testing, etc.
Each penetration test usually focuses on the high-risk vulnerabilities and, if none found, it analyses the medium-low risk vulnerabilities. That is why, in order to improve the security of the target systems, multiple penetration tests and vulnerability assessments should be performed periodically.
Showing the real risk of vulnerabilities
Due to the fact that penetration testers attempt to exploit the identified vulnerabilities, you will be able to see clear visualisation of what an attacker could do if those vulnerabilities were really exploited in the wild (e.g. gain access to sensitive data, execute operating system commands, attack users, etc.).
Sometimes, a vulnerability that is theoretically classified as high risk can be rated as medium or low risk because of the difficulty of exploitation. On the other hand, low risk vulnerabilities might have a high impact because of the context, so they may become high risk. This analysis can only be performed by highly trained experts trained in providing cyber security assessment services. Furthermore, human analysis of vulnerabilities ensures that no false positives are present in the report. This will help enable the client to reduce the time spent on investigating and fixing the vulnerabilities.
Testing your cyber-defence capability
During a penetration test, your security team should be able to detect multiple attacks and respond accordingly on time. Furthermore, if an intrusion is detected, the security and forensic teams should start investigations and the penetration testers should be blocked and their tools removed. The effectiveness of your protection devices like IDS, IPS or WAF can also be tested during a penetration test. Many of the attacks should be automatically detected, alerts should be generated and dedicated people should act according to the organisations internal procedures.
Expert independent opinions
Often-times, the management of an organisation fails to act when certain problems are signalled from within the organisation. Even though IT and/or security personnel may present some issues to the management, they often do not receive the necessary support or funding. Having an expert opinion or two to hand from experienced IT consulting companies can help bolster the case for the support and funding required to mitigate cyber security threats and make the job of implementing changes far more seamless. IG Smart Ltd’s cyber security assessment services and solutions are designed to provide you with independent and impartial expert opinions about cyber security risks which may impact your organisation and the means to control such risks.
