Get your cyber security checked by experts
Security testing gives you independent verification that your security processes and procedures are working. We offer various styles of testing which cover different aspects of your security arrangements.
Vulnerability scanning is designed to locate any technical weaknesses in your internet-facing services so that they can be closed down or have additional protections put in place. Regular scanning is essential as your IT services are continually evolving. We have the tools and experience to offer an efficient and effective scanning service.
It is now well known that a large proportion of security breaches are caused by employees being tricked into revealing sensitive information, or taking inappropriate action (eg invoice fraud). Research suggests that as many as 91% of data breaches start with a “spear-phishing” email.
We recommend a three-step process to manage the risks from this problem:
- Undertake a baseline phishing security test to establish what proportion of your staff are currently “phish-prone”
- Provide security awareness training – interactive, bite-sized, high-quality training which can be incorporated into the normal day’s work is effective and causes minimal disruption
- Repeat the simulated phishing attacks to measure the improvement in your “phish-prone” percentage, and target your training efforts where the risk is highest.
We have partnered with a leading provider of security awareness training and simulated phishing tests, meaning we can get you up and running with this in a very short time. We even offer a FREE phishing security test so that you can get a better understanding of the scale of the problem in your own organisation.
Security audits focus on checking whether your security procedures are being followed, and if not, why not. Audits help your staff understand the reasons for the procedures and their responsibilities within them. They can also help to identify ways that procedures can be streamlined and offer a way of including your staff in their development.
