Risk Management

Cyber security decisions in today’s information-driven economy should be driven from a shared understanding of your organization’s assets, threats, and vulnerabilities which might result in significant long term expense to the affected organizations and substantially damage customer’s trust and brand reputation.  Security investments address the most significant risks. It is a property of your entire IT infrastructure or application stack and should be considered as a whole. Cyber security risk, as with all risks, cannot be completely eliminated, but instead must be managed through informed decision making processes.

We help determine your actual risks to create a workable, affordable, scalable strategy to reduce cyber risks. We ensure your organization implement a sound cyber risk management program and demonstrate the effectiveness of that program by taking a proactive approach to establish a strong foundation for addressing cyber risk.

Risk Management includes

  • Firewall Configuration Audit
  • Server Hardening Services

Firewall Configuration Audit

Firewalls should be the first line of defense against malicious attacks on your network. No matter which type of perimeter security devices are being used, monitoring these devices are critical to ensure that they functioning smoothly and you are alerted in advance of any suspicious user activities, network anomalies, or device misconfiguration.

Installing firewall makes you secure but only when if those firewalls are properly configured. Most of the times firewalls are running with default configurations which make it highly susceptible to the vulnerabilities and attacks which makes firewall configuration audit a must thing.

Firewall audit service is comprised of the following steps

  • Understanding organization’s business and security risk.
  • Studying LAN and WAN network and various application dependencies
  • Downloading firewall configuration file
  • Based on the security risk requirement, assessing, fixing and reconfiguration of problems.
  • Performing detailed vulnerability analysis to ensure that new rules don’t expose any further problems
  • Following all above processes for industry standard requirements such as ISO, PCI-DSS, and HIPAA etc.

Server Hardening Services

Server hardening is the process of enhancing server security through a variety of means which results in a much more secure server operating environment. This is due to the advanced security measures that are put in place during the server hardening process.

System hardening needs more than just standards. It needs years of experience and expertise in various IT infrastructure designs, products, software and solutions. It is a process of defining various blocks and then securely installing or configuring those individually, to form a robust and secure system. We have expertise in the areas of hardening Microsoft, Unix and Linux platform, various database engines, application servers as well as network parameter defense devices such as routers, firewall and intrusion detection systems.
