          IT Security Audit and Assessment

          Are You Prepared for Today’s Security Threats?

          Today’s complex security landscape can be difficult to navigate on your own. Cyber attacks and security breaches are growing in frequency and severity, users demand greater mobility, and the amount of data you must protect continues to increase year after year. In today's IT world, it's no longer a matter of if a security breach will occur, it's a matter of when. In order to be prepared, you must fully understand your risk. You need an accurate picture of the security risk profile for the assets, applications, and services that you are managing at all times.

          You need a partner who understands how to help you protect your organization effectively and efficiently. Our experts can address your most critical security needs, stringent compliance requirements, and complex technology challenges—with a deep understanding of your unique environment, needs, and goals.

          The right IT partner will help you answer important questions about your security stance:

          • What threats are you trying to defend against?
          • How are you susceptible to external attacks?
          • How do you address a user doing something inappropriate in your environment?
          • What is your overall risk?

          Protect - Detect - React

          Prioritize Your Focus and Reduce Your Risk.

          One of the first fundamental components of any risk strategy is to understand how vulnerable or susceptible you might be. A standard mantra in the industry is, “You don't know what you don't know.” We can help you gain a comprehensive overview of your environment and discover potential vulnerabilities with our Security Assessment and Penetration Testing services.

          • A Penetration Test can help highlight which vulnerabilities are exploitable, which risks are critical—and therefore need to be addressed with a high priority—and which items can be remediated over time.
            • An audit generally takes the form of technical testing, penetration testing, or ethical hacking, from the outside. The goal is to determine whether or not any of the services that your organization is operating have any types of flaws in them. And more importantly, whether or not those flaws can be exploited by somebody with the right skillset and motivation.
          • Our Security Assessment and Penetration Testing Services help prioritize where you should focus resources to reduce overall risk. We will help you better understand today’s real world threats and how they could affect your organization. Then we can advise you on how to bring the risk into an acceptable range.

          Our IT Security Audit and Assessment Services Include:

          • Penetration and vulnerability testing (to include wireless)
            • Internal and external testing and risk analysis
            • Exploitation or attack risk analysis
            • Risk enumeration and prioritized remediation plan
            • Reporting (to include detailed vulnerability enumeration)
          • Application security testing and secure code review
            • Build a threat model
              • Identify key security requirements and threats
              • Create a threat model that documents attacks that could be carried out
            • Build assessment action plan
              • Convert potential threats into action plan
              • Test against the conditions of attack described in the threat model
            • Execute assessment
              • Execute attacks as described in the action plan

          We can help you gain a comprehensive overview of your environment with penetration testing that highlights:

          • Exploitable vulnerabilities in your environment

          • Lower priority risks that can be remediated over time

          Our team identifies the vulnerabilities that exist in your environment, then works with you to develop a prioritized plan to bring that risk down to an acceptable level—in accordance with compliance-based security requirements, such as HIPAA, HITECH, ePHI, PCI, GLBA, and FISMA.
