Cyber security is hot and not without reason. The increased risks are partly due to the far-reaching connectivity with a whole range of stakeholders, the often scattered storage of data and the many devices that have access to applications. Hackers are happy to take advantage of these vulnerabilities. A cybersecurity assessment followed by a customized and integrated security roadmap will reduce security risks to an absolute minimum.
Range of hacking methods
As we all know, cyber criminals are becoming increasingly professional and their activities have grown into a billion-dollar business. They also do market segmentation, carry out market research and set up real marketing campaigns. They use an increasing number of ‘tools’ to steal data (i.e. ’the new gold’) and money. These range from familiar methods such as spoofing and DDoS attacks to less familiar methods including keylogging, UI Redress and fake Wireless Access Points. Before they catch a big fish, for example, they have studied annual reports in detail and they know exactly who they should approach for a ransom after an attack.
Amidst all this cyber violence, many organizations no longer know how to secure everything or where to begin in the first place. Fortunately, we do know. At Resilient Security, we always start with a thorough risk or security maturity assessment. After an assessment of the IT and security organization based on the NIST Cybersecurity Framework and mapping the weak spots, we design a fully customized and integrated security roadmap to improve the security maturity of your organization. The weak spots are often technical in nature or can be attributed to incomplete policies and processes. On top of that, in most cases, human behavior is also an issue. This varies from recklessly opening attachments and clicking on links in emails to the absence of adequate onboarding and offboarding protocols and incident response plans.
These are serious security risks and for this reason, awareness on all levels of the organization is crucial. In designing the most suitable individual solution, we also take into account the type of organization of customers. A production company, for example, will most likely focus on protecting its production processes and IP whereas the main challenge of, say, a hospital will be protecting medical and other privacy-sensitive data. So are you taking security seriously, but are you at a loss as to which measures to put in place? Feel free to contact us at email@example.com or call +32 3 304 76 36.
