Information Security Vulnerability Assessment
Your office network has been a bit slow? You thought “it’s probably the internet.” – Big mistake.
Cyberattacks are SILENT, SNEAKY and DEADLY
What When and How often?
Vulnerability assessment will give you a good picture of your organization’s overall IT security health. Your assessment results will help you detect, prevent and resolve security issues before they are exploited. Your IT security should be checked quarterly, or especially after a new system or equipment is introduced to your IT infrastructure.
While you are busy handling business, hackers are busy looking for your security holes. Some hacks to extract data, hacks for ransom, and some hacks for fun. Each organization has different security weakness and vulnerabilities depending on the business structure and these need to be assessed using a risk-based approach. Online scans can run a quick passive check, but they are not going to be able to uncover future risks, rank them, prioritize and recommend the most appropriate remedies fit for your organization.

A fishing media company in 2019 came under an attack of SQL injection. A hacker successfully fooled the system to extract Names, physical addresses, and email addresses of the company’s 60,000 subscribers.
