It is easy to recognise the potential damage that security breaches can cause, not just in direct cost but often, more significantly, in reputational damage. And worse, the media (and management) are quick to point the finger and allocate blame following a data loss incident, even if this is unjustified.
It is now becoming standard practice to conduct security testing against elements of critical IT infrastructure, particularly for systems that are ‘Internet-facing’. The industry term for such testing is Penetration Testing, although this can take many forms depending upon the system to be tested, including:
As security threats are constantly evolving, it makes sense to conduct testing at least annually. To facilitate this, we have partnered with one of the longest established specialists in the field, ECSC, who provide services to a wide range of public and private organisations. ECSC offer their experience and expertise independent of our systems management.
Adapt works with you to address identified weaknesses and improve your security as an ongoing process.
Our systems specialists help you to interpret testing results, prioritise and implement remedies and plan for change.
Adapt’s approach is designed to help you identify critical vulnerabilities, support your risk assessment activities and work with you to develop appropriate protection systems. This translates into evolving security protection that responds to new threats and protects your systems, information and reputation.
Adapt works in partnership with independent security consultants ECSC. With detailed knowledge of your infrastructure, we are well-positioned to immediately create a remediation plan for any vulnerabilities discovered during testing.
Where testing shows no high-risk vulnerabilities are present, ECSC will give you a Pass Certificate to use in your own marketing activities.
