Adversarial mindset

With the way businesses and governments are expanding their internet presence, it's important to understand how your weaknesses can be exploited by adversaries. Ethical hacking and attack simulation exercises are a few ways we help you achieve this goal by understanding what vulnerabilities exist in a system or network so that they may then be eliminated from existence.

IT security assessment services for your business

A security services assignment involves multiple phases to help customers identify, analyse and assist with remediating the risks to the business context. It involves identifying risks as well as producing proof of concepts with supporting data relevant to the assets. Final deliverables include technical and management summary, strategic and tactical recommendations including details of risk, attack impact, the likelihood of attack and reasonable probability in the business environment.

The main objective of a third-party cyber security service is to find and remediate security weaknesses that a threat actor can exploit. This would include checks around networks, applications, devices and other systems across the estate.

Think of this as a simulation exercise to assess an organisations’ readiness against cyber attack.

Business benefits of security assessments

Trusted cyber security assessment services provider

Security is a continuous improvement process

Cyber security is a major concern for small businesses. The sad truth about cyberattacks is that they are simpler today than ever before. This means there are more threats to worry about and less time to respond when an attack occurs. That’s why it becomes critical for businesses and startups to focus on the basics of reducing their risk exposure as much as possible by making sure to establish cyber security baseline. This will ensure software updates on time, avoiding risky business partners and not downloading email attachments from unknown sources. 

There will always be risks in doing business online, but taking even just some basic steps can help reduce the chances of something happening without your knowledge or protection – meaning you’ll have peace of mind knowing you’re protected against anything that might come up in this day and age with all the new technology.

Frequently Asked Questions

Majority of the cyber security services exist in two main models: an outsourced approach using managed cyber security and cyber security services through a typical consulting model. Further, security services exist based on the target landscape such as web applications, APIs, external and internal network across the active directory, cloud and mobile applications. 

Our security assessment methodology encompasses OWASP Top 10, SANS Top 20 Critical Controls and CIS, NIST 800-115. Any other standards needed for specific projects can be included as per customer request. See our pen test blog post for a detailed article on penetration testing and how practicality around cyber attacks is taken into consideration.

In order to maintain quality and add value to customer investment, we do not utilise automated scanners that run and report tests. A mixed approach involves a range of open source and commercial pentest tools in addition to multiple scripts/utilities are utilised to uncover hidden and complex vulnerabilities.

The scope of the test depends upon the asset functionality. For instance, an application is estimated based on its functionality, dynamic content and form fields, authentication, APIs, third-party modules.
Unauthorised or authorised exercises differ in timescales due to the lead time required to build knowledge about the functionality of the asset. No social engineering is included in technical assessments unless it is a tailored scope. 

Communication plays an important role during security assessments. We always prompt customers to inform us about fragile components during project initiation meetings. Low level attacks, Denial of Service attacks are explicitly deemed out of scope for all assessments.

Majority of the pentesting projects can be conducted remotely via a VPN, IP restrictions, or similarly controlled setups. Wireless pen tests are most effective when performed onsite.

Our Engagement Approach

Customer Business Insight

The very first step remains our quest to gain insight into drivers, business, pain points and relevant nuances. As part of this process, we understand the assets that are part of the scope.

Services Proposal

It is important to gain grips with the reality, therefore, we always stress on walkthroughs or technical documentation of the assets. After asset walkthroughs, a tailored proposal is designed to meet your business’ specific requirements.

Execution and Delivery

Cyphere’s approach to all work involves excellent communication before and during the execution phase. Customer communication medium and frequency are mutually agreed, and relevant parties are kept updated throughout the engagement duration.

Data Analysis & Reporting

Execution phase is followed by data analysis and reporting phase. Cyphere performs analysis on the testing output, evaluates the risk impact and likelihood of exploitation in realistic scenarios before providing action plans to remediate the identified risks. All our reports address business as well as the technical audience with supporting raw data, including mitigation measures at strategic and tactical levels

Debrief & Support

As part of our engagement process, customers schedule a free of charge debrief with management and technical teams. This session involves remediation plan, assessment QA to ensure that customer contacts are up to date in the language they understand.
