Risk Assessment

Your organization has weaknesses and vulnerabilities you don’t even realize. They need to be found. And found immediately. Because chances are, right now, there’s a foreign nation or a group of criminals targeting you. We can stop them. The first step is to complete a full risk assessment, so we can discover what problems exist and fix them for you.

Risk Assessment Redefined

It only makes sense that as cybercrime becomes more daring, so too, should risk assessment. At SpearTip, we assess risk from a different perspective. Our team examines risk from every angle, every thought process, and every background our team members have to offer. This multilateral methodology allows us to uncover risks, and better ways to combat those risks, on a level other providers simply cannot match.

Pre-Breach Assessment Solutions

Instead of focusing on patch levels, we examine your entire security posture from the top down. Our team of operatives will put your policies, systems, networks, defenses and staff through the paces. It won’t always be easy, but when we’re done, you’ll know your weaknesses and how to fix them. Here’s what to expect during a SpearTip Breach Assessment:

Network Vulnerability Assessment

These assessments should be conducted regularly to assure devices on your network are not open to known vulnerabilities. We’ll comprehensively identify, classify and analyze known vulnerabilities, then provide actionable solutions to eliminate any future problems.

IT Security Audit

Our audits leave no stone unturned. We’ll perform staff interviews and examine how you’re leveraging your current technology. We’ll review application and operating system access controls, and analyze physical access to your systems. Then we’ll provide detailed reports and recommendations to keep you compliant and safe, according to current standards.

Penetration Testing

The only real way to test your readiness for a cyberattack is to let our cyber warriors wage war on your networks during a Pen Test. We’ll compromise your defenses quickly and quietly—just like the threats you want to stop. The difference between us and the threats you fear is that we’ll take the necessary steps to secure your defenses before you become front page news.

Web Application Security Testing

Your most sensitive data is available at the application level, so application security testing is a must. Since application attacks are popular with your adversaries, the tools used by criminals change and evolve constantly. Our operatives stay on the forefront of technology and monitor criminal activity to ensure our testing measures the latest threats, so your executive team can manage, mitigate and transfer risk at the appropriate level.

Gap Analysis

At SpearTip, we believe compliance breeds complacency. If you’re merely compliant, you’ve met the bare minimum. Our assessment will ensure you’re compliant but we’ll also identify the areas where you could be at risk because even though you may be compliant, you could still be at risk of a devastating court judgement in the event of a sophisticated breach that compromises customers, vendors, employees and more.

Cyber Hunting

Most companies don’t know they’ve been breached by an Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) for at least six months. APTs hide secretly inside your networks, siphoning off everything from data to dollars. Our Cyber Hunting assessment will comb your networks to ensure no zero-day malware exists. In the event we discover malicious code, we’ll quickly mitigate the threat, assess damage and work with law enforcement to both recover assets and bring the people behind the breach to justice.

8 Easy Steps To Improved Cybersecurity

Here are eight simple protocols you can execute prior to your breach assessment that will help improve your overall cybersecurity program. Common sense practices and a diligent approach to protecting your systems and networks are the first steps to preventing a breach.

  1. Identify where critical data and trade secrets are stored
  2. Restrict access
  3. Prohibit portable storage devices
  4. Encrypt and approve all devices
  5. Institute intrusion monitoring
  6. Evaluate vendors
  7. Make someone accountable
  8. Consider cybersecurity and cyber ransom insurance
