16 Ways to Cybersecure Your Company

What is Cybersecurity?

Cybersecurity is the protection of computer systems from theft or damage to the hardware, software or the information on them, as well as from disruption or misdirection of the services they provide. Cybersecurity breaches can occur from a variety of sources, due to the increasing reliance on computer systems and the internet, wireless networks such as Bluetooth and Wi-Fi – and the growth of “smart” devices including smartphones, televisions and tiny devices as part of the Internet of Things.

      What We Do

      Our cybersecurity consultants, led by our Certified Information Security Systems Professional (CISSP) will run a comprehensive audit of your system, assess vulnerabilities and provide you with a plan to ensure that your infrastructure is taking every precaution to protect your networks, devices and data.

      • Vulnerability Assessment

        Your network will be assessed and analyzed. Vulnerabilities will be identified and our Certified Information Security Systems Professional (CISSP) led team will provide you with a thorough report and recommendations to strengthen your cyber environment.

      • Security Auditing

        Your current security measures and processes will be put to the test. Strengthening your organization’s security policies is an on-going process of development, implementation and validation.

      • Penetration Testing

        Our cybersecurity experts will stage a real world breach both internally and externally from the perspective of an attacker.

      • Social Engineering/Phishing Campaigns

        Your cyber defense is only as strong as your employee’s training. With your management’s permission, our cyber team will attempt to infiltrate via campaigns designed to impersonate legitimate contacts/businesses. This allows us to evaluate your employees’ susceptibility to phishing emails or copycat websites.
