Stay a Step Ahead with an Active Approach
Outthinking the adversary is essential in today’s world. Active testing determines the effectiveness of your security controls and enhances your ability to defend against cyber attacks.
The key to any security program is understanding how your organization fares against skilled adversaries. By partnering with SecurityScorecard, we can help your organization identify any gaps in your attack surface defense, taking the power of knowledge out of the hands of your attackers and putting it back where it belongs – in your control.
Changes in your environment can open up paths for hackers to gain entry. A Penetration Test uses simulated cyber-attack strategies and tools designed to access or exploit your computer systems, networks, websites, and applications so you can see how any changes affect your security posture.
Practicing for a cyber incident is preparation that pays off in the long run. Through an Incident Response Tabletop Exercise, real-life incident scenarios help security teams and business leaders uncover gaps in their Incident Response (IR) plan and test the team’s ability to respond effectively and efficiently to an incident such as a ransomware attack, significantly improving your response in the event of an actual attack.
A Red Team exercise is the closest you can get to understanding how a hacker thinks and how they will attempt to gain entry into your environment. Experts use intelligence-led threat scenarios, techniques and methods of known malicious groups for a realistic simulation. Because your overall organization will be unaware that a simulated real-life cyber attack is coming, this provides one of the truest assessments of your security controls, including processes, people, technology, and physical security.
Scorecard Ratings are beneficial in helping you determine when to test your current environment due to changes, risk of vulnerabilities, or to test the effectiveness of your security controls. If you or your vendor's score is below a C grade in the following domains, active security testing is recommended to determine the depth of exploits, including ransomware.
IP Reputation: Potential Brand Reputation Exposure
Real-time penetration test of all digital and public-facing assets to validate the severity of findings
Conduct an Incident Response Tabletop Exercise to bring together all key stakeholders to address potential exposure
Patching: Unpatched System Exposure Vulnerability
Real-time penetration test of server environment to validate the exposures surfaced in the Scorecard portal
