Interhack's Cybersecurity Practice helps you to defend your organization.
Cybersecurity is a diverse topic, including data breaches, compliance violations, and corporate espionage. Security failures can undermine confidence in a brand and can result in catastrophic losses through changes in customer behavior, canceled contracts, and stolen trade secrets.
The Interhack system of Cybersecurity Services has six parts.
Vulnerability Assessment - will show you where your systems are vulnerable, and how your systems are impacted by those vulnerabilities.
Penetration Testing - shows you how well your organization detects and responds to active attacks by having our team of experts conduct controlled attacks you authorize.
Information Security Assessment - shows you how well your organization addresses information security, as seen through the prism of relevant industry standards.
Application Security Evaluation - shows you how your security concerns have been identified and are managed through system design and implementation.
Network Traffic Assessment - shows you what is actually on your network, and helps you verify that you have only what you think you have.
Criticality Assessment - provides you a view of your organization's most mission-critical information, where it can be found, and how the organization is impacted by a loss of confidentiality, integrity, and availability.
