Don’t Guess; Know Your Risk with a Full Security Assessment
Everyone knows that there’s some level of risk involved when it comes to a company’s critical and secure data, information assets, and facilities. But how do you quantify and prepare for the ever-growing risks surrounding cybersecurity? The purpose of an IT security assessment is to determine what risks are posed to your company’s critical assets and to know how much funding and effort should be used in their protection.
Consider the 2014 case of a German steel mill that was infiltrated by hackers using simple techniques like spear-phishing and social engineering to gain access into the mill’s office network. From there, they jumped to the production network and were able to take control of control components and production machines, preventing the plant from shutting down a blast furnace properly, resulting in “massive” damage” to the physical facilities. A simple security assessment could have recommended separating the office and production networks, thus preventing this costly attack.
Netsync can not only assess your risk for cyberattacks through penetration tests and other methods. With this assessment you’ll discover where vulnerabilities exist in your system and how to resolve them, as well as finding out what, if any, malicious code has been introduced into your network and how to remediate it.
After the results of the assessment are in, Netsync can design and deploy a tailored plan to provide total cybersecurity protection to your whole system. But, like consulting a map before a trip, it all begins with a thorough and complete assessment of risk and vulnerability. It’s never too early to start the journey towards effective cybersecurity, but it could soon be too late.
