Cyber criminals profit enormously by infecting Windows machines. They penetrate the security perimeter of private corporations and public institutions alike, of all sizes, and make their way into private computers via sophisticated and systematic attacks, which target vulnerabilities the operating systems as well as popular third party applications. From that point on, automated information gathering/leakage issues, leading to the compromise of everything from access to online banking, credit card information, private signatures, intellectual property, budgets, as well as other confidential information.
In a digital, dynamic world, anything can happen and as a result, your organisation may encounter all sorts of challenges.We at Cyberinfocts have seen most of what has been served, which gives us the ability to advise a variety of organisations ranging from global financial organisations to newly established businesses. They all share a common desire not to have to worry about IT security. And we help them.
Using our innovative and highly interactive security assessment methodology, our security consultants will work with your IT team to perform a quick but comprehensive audit of the security of your applications and systems in their full environmental and business context.
We will also help you to understand and apply industry best practices in network security. You may use this as the jumping off point for planning and prioritizing future security initiatives. Our clients value both the short duration and the immense knowledge transfer that occurs during these intense security assessments.
At Cyberinfocts, we use several techniques to audit and analyze the security of your IT environment from several angles.
To ensure breadth of coverage, we often use the international security standard, ISO 27002 compliance, as a framework for these assessments. Rather than looking at formal compliance, we look to see if the client is generally “doing the right thing” in each major security area.
Ethical Hacking is a preventive approach to Information Security: you try to break into your own system to test the security. Ethical Hacking is like an insurance policy, you don’t see the value until something happens, then it is too late.
- How difficult would it be for a hacker to penetrate my network from the outside?
- What measures should we implement to protect our assets?
- What information is at risk?
Our penetration testing activities will reveal how well your organization's security policies protect your assets. We'll identify the extent to which your system can be compromised before an actual attack. Many organizations put their trust in our team of IT security specialists each day to make sure their business systems and corporate data is as secure as possible.
A Penetration Test differs from our vulnerability assessment in that it actually exploits known and potential vulnerabilities and determines what information is actually exposed to the outside world. An External Penetration Test mimics the actions of a real hacker and attacker exploiting weaknesses in the network security without disrupting your day-to-day business. This test examines all out facing IT systems for any weakness that could be used by an external hacker to disrupt and expose the confidentiality, availability or integrity of your business network and IT systems.
Our team will work with you and address all findings and offer recommendations on how you can tighten your IT security and keep your business data safe.
Web Application Security
|Web Application Security|
Today’s battleground is the application. Whether it is hostile Internet users going after your Web site or a rogue employee abusing an internal application, ensuring that your applications are secure requires vigilance. Most organizations adopt a proactive approach; they know they are better off finding and fixing exposures before they are exploited.
A small team of consultants spends an agreed upon amount of time assessing the platform associated with the customer’s application as a skillful attacker and documenting their findings and recommendations. During the analysis, the consultants look to exploit deficiencies in the application or web pages themselves, to escalate privileges, access other network systems or services, or identify instances where customer-private data may be exposed.
These services can serve as jumping off points for customized testing engagements depending on if the application is accessed via standard (browser) technology or uses a unique thick-client, the duration of the assessment, what type of written report is required, how many consultants are assigned to the task, and if the review is done remotely over the Internet or on-site.
Generally, application vulnerability testing is intended to answer clear business questions. The specific testing service you choose depends on which of these questions you are concerned with and whether the application is internal or outward facing.
- Is the web site reasonably secure as configured and deployed?
- Are there readily found exposures that an intruder could take advantage of without having to log in?
- Can an unauthorized rogue user access data intended only for authorized users?
- Can authorized users perform inappropriate actions in their own account?
- Can a user obtain any information about the accounts of other users?
- Can a user perform any actions on the accounts of other users?
The process of Computer Forensics examines a computer system to search for clues relating to a specific incident or situation.
Cyberinfocts specialises in analyzing computer systems that have been subjected to both malicious software and/or malicious employees.
We assist both attorneys and business professionals to acquire and analyze computer data for purposes of litigation or to improve corporate security regarding IT systems and information technology throughout the organization.
With many years of experience working with computers and helping corporate, government and small business with leading IT security solutions our team offers a broad-based and in-depth knowledge of information technology and computer forensics. We will analyze data from personal computers, notebooks, laptops and servers, including your Web servers, as well as handheld computers, iPads, BlackBerries and many of the newer digital devices.
Our extensive business experience consulting on computer and IT security issues shows that we are prepared to go deep, well beneath the bits and bytes to present the straight facts and then explain what they really mean.
We excel at the interpretation of computer forensics data. We will explain our findings in understandable English, with a minimum of technical jargon. We give you all the information you need and present it in such a way that is easily understood by judges and other non-computer experts. The computer forensics expert reports and visual aids we create may be used in affidavits to support litigation.
Of course, we also take part in discoveries and trials to offer expert witness testimony that supports our professional opinions.
