There is a range of cyber risk assessment and assurance services you can avail of. Some of the key ones are:
Many cybercriminals follow recognised Tactics, Techniques and Procedures (TTPs). Cyber security testers use these proven methodologies to replicate attacks. If successful, businesses gain a deeper understanding of what types of attacks they're most vulnerable to.
Hackers will use different campaigns based on the industry they're targeting and their overall goal. Because of this, companies have to cover much less space than they may initially think. By learning the most common cyber-attacks the industry faces, the business can better prepare itself to stop those attacks and find out where its strategy is weak.
Constantly patching workstations, devices and network hardware isn't an easy job but it can't be ignored. Hackers use these commonly known vulnerabilities to deliver ransomware and trojans. Unfortunately, many companies struggle to stay on top of all the vulnerabilities that exist in the organisation.
Cyber risk assessments identify critical vulnerabilities that are being actively used in the industry and the world to launch cyber-attacks. By quickly resolving these vulnerabilities, businesses can shut down exploits that would otherwise lead to an entirely preventable security incident.
Every business faces the need to stay compliant with industry-specific and general laws, such as banks that must comply with PSD2 and GDPR. Even the smallest slip can lead to legal battles, millions in remediation and a damaged reputation. Cyber security testing helps businesses prove and maintain compliance.
The many regulations surrounding cyber security have their own unique twists that make them different. The underlying thread is that it's the responsibility of the business to meet them. Regular penetration testing shows regulators that the company is taking an active role in improving its cyber security strategy and securing its data.
