Security Risk Assessments, Security Audits, Reviews & Gap Analysis

Security Assessments, Security Risk Assessments, Security Audits, Vulnerabilty Scanning, Penetration Testing, Phishing TestsSecurity risk assessments are essential for discovering risk and defining appropriate mitigation strategies that fit your company’s objectives. There are two components to security assessments: 1) Security Reviews (often called security audits) provide a complete process for defining security risk strategies based upon your objectives, security posture and status and 2) Security tests such as penetration testing, vulnerability testing and phishing tests which diagnose actual vulnerabilities in specific areas of your security infrastructure.


Security Review & Gap Analysis (Security Audits)

The most important part of security assessments is the security review & gap analysis. It is the glue that ties the entire security risk assessment solution together.  As with security audits, there must be a process for assessing a company’s risk profile.  In a security review, we review your key assets, current security strategy, controls and, IT infrastructure and prioritize your top vulnerabilities, risks and recommended security control solutions. The resulting report is suitable for defining your future security strategy, defining budgets and the order to implement security risk mitigation solutions.


Vulnerability Scanning, Penetration Testing and Other Security Assessment Tests

Security assessments tests diagnose actual security vulnerabilities by testing specific areas of your security infrastructure. They can be performed with or without a Security Review. Each test has separate goals and a different process, but all are designed to identify security vulnerabilities and to assign a probability of occurrence so that a plan can be defined related to controlling that security risk. Consult your security expert to determine which tests might be appropriate for your environment.

The most common security tests used in security risk assessments are network vulnerability scanning tests and network penetration testing. These tests can be used to test external networks, Websites, Web applications as well as internal networks. Other security tests include wireless security, VOIP security, Phishing tests, security configuration testing and physical security tests.

Security Assessment Components



Security Review & Gap Analysis

Audit your security strategy, and controls to ensure that they are appropriate to protect your key digital assets. The result is a prioritized list of security controls.

Network Vulnerability Scanning:

• External & Internal

Security network vulnerability scanning tests applied from outside &/or Inside your network to identify basic security vulnerabilities to common current threats. Vulnerability scanning is the #1 used and most basic security test.
Network Penetration Testing

• External & Internal

Targeted network penetration testing attacks on your network by white hat hackers looking for vulnerabilities to sophisticated attacks from outside or inside your Network.
Web Application Penetration Testing
A rigorous Web application testing process that includes a series of fabricated malicious attacks to see the level of security of the Web application system
Social Engineering Tests

(Including Phishing)

A broad range of social engineering tests including pretending to be a trusted party to manipulate an authorized user to provide access to confidential business secrets or information about usernames and passwords. 

Phishing testing is the most common social engineering testing performed which can be performed as a recurring assessment service. Combining security awareness training with phishing simulations is recommended for all companies.

WiFi Review & Testing WiFi security testing that examines the security of the wireless topology and design. Wireless components such as controllers, access points, client workstations and mobile device settings are reviewed to ensure proper security measures
VOIP Security Testing Test your VOIP system for security vulnerabilities.
Security Configuration Testing Examines the security features and settings of IDS, IPS, UTM security appliances and other security solutions for optimal security configurations.
Operational Security Tests Selected tests of various corporate systems for security controls such as application software tests.
Physical Security Tests Testing of physical and environmental infrastructure for appropriate security controls for office and data centers and vulnerability to environmental disasters.
