Vulnerability Assessment

Cyber Security Vulnerability Assessment.

Vulnerabilities, these are system weaknesses that can be exploited by hackers, can disrupt systems and business as well as expose sensitive or personal information. Anomalies often related to programming errors or configuration issues; A Vulnerability Management program can help in these situations. They discover the assets in your estate, detect vulnerabilities potentially exploitable by hackers, notify security teams, detail solutions to implement or automatically fix vulnerabilities. The result is a reduced attack surface to the smallest possible size up to 0.01%.

Executive Summary:
“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”

Ransomware attacks towards organisations have left numerous corporates wondering if the they are ready enough for the next cyber threat or will they recover from another cyber threat. Thus, knowing your cyber resilience stance on your ICT Infrastructure and most importantly critical IT infrastructure is of vital importance.

Another perspective: Outside-in instead of inside-out. With Vulnerability Management, you’re looking at your IT infrastructure from the outside – just like a potential attacker would. The aim is to locate any vulnerability that might exist in your IT infrastructure.

Run for cover – it’s the right reaction, even in cyberspace. But have a plan first. Vulnerability management is the answer. You can reduce your attack surface by 99.9%

STAY ONE STEP AHEAD OF ATTACKERS.

IT security is unending practice and vulnerability assessment lays the foundation. Identifying the weak points in your armor will be better as most of the threats are targeted to these exploits.

The process – from recognition to remedy and monitoring – represents a continuous cycle. You’ll always be one step ahead of attackers. Still another plus: with our IT security solutions you can focus your hot spots, thus increasing the efficiency of antivirus systems, firewalls & Co.

Recognize and manage risks

Any IT system is at risk of attack by skilled hackers.
Typical causes of vulnerability are improper configuration or programming errors, unauthorized installations or violations of security measures. Our Green bone (courtesy) Security Manager uncovers these and countless other risks – and helps you set priorities.

Conclusion

In cyber security the intersection of three elements creates the attack surface of your IT Infrastructure.

First, the attacker who uses .
1. Knowledge and experience,
2. Equipment and capital to attack your infrastructure.

Target selection is based on the value to the attacker. Second,
1. Direct access to your computer systems or
2. The remote access, for example via wireless access points via your internet connection or
3. Your worldwide web presence consisting of your employee who is active on the internet and
4. Your own website,
The paths of attack to the chosen target are constantly changing. Third,

1. Existing weaknesses in IT systems,
2. Bugs in programs and operating systems such as shell shock and heart bleed or
3. Misconfigured systems,

They may compromise the;
1. Confidentiality
2. Integrity or
3. Availability of your IT assets

When these three elements come together an attack on your IT systems is highly probable you can influence the third element since 999 out of 1,000 successfully exploited vulnerabilities have been known for more than one year, reduce the vulnerabilities in your IT infrastructure by 99.9 percent with vulnerability management.
