Cyber Threat Assessment
You don’t have to face the dangerous world of cyber threats alone
In our world of global interconnectivity and daily reliance on technology-based conveniences, ESI (Electronically Stored Information) has never played a more vital role in keeping businesses vibrant, competitive and successful. But by the same token, the impact of losing control of that digital information to external, and sometimes even internal forces, has never had more potential for devastating consequences. At GDF, we have been helping businesses of all sizes negotiate the ever-evolving threats and unique challenges of the cyber world since well before millennium flipped, giving us the breadth of knowledge and experience that allows us to handle even the most sensitive and complex cyber-threat related issues.
Identifying weaknesses in your cyber security posture is crucial
To chart a course to a new destination, in this case to a strengthened cyber security posture, it’s important to know exactly where you are starting from. A GDF cyber threat assessment is designed to do exactly that. Our veteran cyber security experts survey a client’s entire digital landscape, like mapping and understanding the complete digital architecture, assessing the business requirements and data flow needs unique to the client, and reviewing in-house policies which may be outdated, or even worse, non-existent, while also addressing various regulatory compliance challenges certain organizations may additionally face.
Don’t rely on yesterday’s solutions to combat today’s threats
Cyber space is a very fluid environment, with new technologies, platforms, devices and applications seemingly popping up on an almost daily basis. To not only maintain success, but to thrive through it all as a business, sometimes new things must be embraced. Mobile devices like smartphones and tablets, for instance, can add a level of flexibility to communication and workflow throughout an organization unheard of in years past. Technologies like cloud computing can put on-demand scalability within a fingertip’s reach, and applications continuously become more intuitive and can make many tasks exponentially easier than ever before. But, with every advancement or new offering, the cyber threats we face become more complex and creative too, and relying on cyber threat assessment results and security measures from a year or more ago can prove just as ineffective as WWII era propeller power would against an F-22. Cyber security is not a “set it and forget it” strategy, it has to be continuously poked, prodded, tweaked, fortified and reassessed to be effective, making routine cyber threat assessments absolutely critical if you want to be able to survive the dogfight with cyber attackers when they bring new weapons to bear.
Just some of the threats GDF helps you face on the digital frontier:
- Spear Phishing
- Cyber Intrusions
- Data Breaches
- Cyber Espionage
- Data Exfiltration
- DDoS Attacks
- Cyber Warfare
- And More…
Comprehensive penetration testing is an integral part to assessing the threat
A Global Digital Forensics cyber threat assessment looks at the entire picture, and when it comes to the penetration testing phase, which is basically attempting to hack a network the same way a real-world attacker would without our client actually suffering the dire consequences a real attacker would cause, it is a very effective way to provide a baseline for improving cyber defenses on all fronts. GDF also includes a comprehensive social engineering component to the penetration testing phase and will even go as far as setting up a dummy website to make phishing and spear phishing attacks, which are the most effective and widely relied upon methods of initial intrusions, as realistic as possible, and therefore highly effective at highlighting weaknesses in cyber policy and procedure.
We bring the works
To date, we have never failed to infiltrate a network we set out to, and every weakness we expose will only serve to make your cyber security posture that much stronger. It’s our job to stay on the cutting edge of today’s technologies and threats and we revel in it. So let us do what we do best, so you can keep doing do what you do best.
