Gartner estimates that, although fewer than 10% of the attacks on the Internet are targeted against a single company, the financial impact to an individual business of a single successful targeted attack will be 50 to 100 times greater than the impact of a successful worm or virus event.
An experienced or motivated attacker can take advantage of system vulnerabilities and mis-configurations to gain unauthorized access to the system or other detailed information that can lead to privilege escalation on a critical target. A Network Security Assessment emulates the same process that an attacker would follow to exploit multiple security weaknesses that individually are not critical, but in the aggregate allow an attacker to compromise business-critical data.
In a Network Security Assessment, Strategic Security conducts an extensive review of your network from the perspective of a malicious hacker and finds the security holes before they can be exploited by hackers or disgruntled employees.
The Strategic Security difference evaluates business risk aligned with IT security risks and develops a comprehensive action plan.
Having a Network Security Assessment performed will allow you to:
Reduce Your Security Costs:
- Align costs with business risk
- Decrease operating expenses and overhead
Focus on Your Business Objectives:
- Measure security risk level and tolerance
- Free internal IT staff for other priorities
