What is Cyber Security? It’s the focus and approach towards protecting computer environments. Cyber security services at a holistic level that includes applications,workstations, routers, data, and permissions is all part of the Cyber Security philosophy of threat prevention. “Cyberspace”, a computer network touching internet or intranet, is not only a superhighway of digital information but also a playing ground for cybercriminals.
The importance of Cyber Security touches all worlds including business, governments, military, financial institutions, and consumers. Once the convenience of transmitting digital information over the internetwas accepted in society, the need for protecting this became clear. CyberSec cyber security specialists help compliment your existing cyber security products and services.
CyberSec gives both real world experience using “Black Hat” breach detection with “White Hat” prevention methodologies on manylevels needed to address a modern day computer landscape. CyberSecprovides multiple framework disciplines that work together for an overall resilient shield of protection.
Cyber criminals are evolving from single hacker efforts to groups of cyber-criminal clubs. CyberSec experience comes from our forensic professionals as well as previously retired cyber hacker experts to help share the knowledge needed to protect your enterprise.

Cyber Security Report Analysis:
Through these examination offerings, CyberSec can provide impact ranking in dashboard findings analysis. We provide both technical and C-level reading formats to help deliver a solid and detailed dashboard format for all levels of risk management. Our final reports are comprehensive, with both basic and advanced detail-orientated using risk tolerance rankings, and overall landscape weaknesses and strengths to help you implement the most secured infrastructure, possible.
Cyber Security Response Teams:
Rapid alert and response escalation designing is also available to ensure “live”attacks or incursions are immediately detected, addressed and logged for future quality assurance.
Incident Response is also important for the attacks that make it through the existing framework. An escalation team must address the incident based on the level of impact from the breach. CyberSec can provide post forensic analysis but also overall escalation that can help your response teams manage future incidents in the long term.
Cyber Security: The “Reality Check”
As soon as your company’s firewall was turned on, your network has beenunder constant attack from cybercriminals. This is an unspoken truth that many people do not realize outside of the cyber security industry. Port scanners, probing, scamming strategies, all of these violation attempts touch your intranet perimeter 24x7x365!
Not only is there hackers-for-profit and hackers-for-thrill attempting to penetrate your defenses, but, believe it or not, “state sponsored” hackers as well. Yes, governments employ experienced hackers to identify anything they can find in other countries for potential access weaknesses. It’s not “if” your organization is going to be hacked, but a matter of “when” it will be hacked. CyberSec knows this and offers years of experience working with some of the best cyber security companies, giving assessment evaluations along with a lifecycle plan so you can stay on top this ever changing infrastructure environment.
When a breachis discovered,and customer data is compromised, by law, the company must communicate to their customers about the breach and mitigation plan going forward.
This can be devastating to a corporation’s reputation and stock investors’ confidence. It can cost millions of dollars to restore confidence back to its customer and business stake holder’s community. By staying ahead of the pack and working with best cyber security companies like CyberSec, your company will have a reputation defense plan.
Cyber Security: Staying Current
Any device touching cyberspace as a portal, browser, or in a file share capacity requires to stay current with security mitigation.
As secure as a firewall, router, switch, or wireless access pointscan be, it is only as secure as its operating system or security application software is patched. ManagingCisco ™ IOS security patches is an on-going activity and sometimes can be delayed or even missed due to upgrade complexities that could impact production.
CyberSec uses extensive scanning and device evaluations to insure the security versions are optimal for youroverall data center needs.
Servers must periodically be patched with the security fixes. Delays in patching are what all cybercriminals are hoping for. Our scans provideversion management targeting from Microsoft ™ Windows, Linux, UNIX, Mac OS, servers and identify any needed security patch or version issues.
A workstation can be a Microsoft ™ Windows PC, Apple ™, or Red Hat ™ Linux OS station. Having the latest security is highly important, including Internet Browser security fixes thatcome with the OS. Unfortunately, there are other Internet Browsers available which a user can download and use free-of-charge, such as Google Chrome ™, Apple ™ Safari, and others that may not be getting thesecurity patching, needed. CyberSec scans help identify this and immediately brings it to the attention for technical teams to mitigate in the near future.
Having the latest virus “DAT” file with the most recent virus or spyware attack detection and prevention signatures is extremely important for home or corporate computers. Anti-virus software can be on a workstation, server, third-party security appliance, or email security servers.
CyberSec scanning and environment evaluations help identify any problem systems, and ensures the support team’s latest upgrading strategy is working, as configured.
Business or Database Applications
From Cloud Solutions to locally managed ERP or CRM databases, business applications must also have secure environments. Staying current with application security patching or helping to avoid SQL Database injection virus onto a database requires on-going version and patching attention. These patches can fall behind or are too difficult to implement because their impact on production.
CyberSec works with in-scope applications and database infrastructure teams to help mitigate version weakness and vulnerabilities.
Cyber Security: Strategies for Protection
Cyber Security Assessments
Taking a moment to validate your systems protection is extremely important in Cyber Security. Upgrades, configuration changes, or newly implemented department solutions can inadvertently cause security holes or gaps that your organization may not be aware of until it’s too late
CyberSec scanning, system, and process reviews help discover any out-of-date systems. This ensures the technology team’s current support strategy is working, as designed.
Cyber Security Procedures Review
Procedure break-downs in process such as employees not following user provisioning instructions can also lead to security break-downs. The process may be out of date, too difficult to manage, or just not being followed by employees.
CyberSec procedures and control review help work with your support group to ensure processes are in place and up to date for future support management.
Cyber Security Mitigation
Finding a critical issue ahead of time is great, but how do you fix the problem in the long term?
Security holes or vulnerabilities can vary. Some could be allowing brute force scripting attempts on user logins, or a weak password policy strategy that can be easily circumvented. Countermeasure strategies with a defense-in-depth layered approach can help mitigate the weakness.
CyberSec reports on all holes, issues, or gaps identified during its overall report review. These recommendations come with real-world balance approaches to ensure you’re getting the best analysis, possible.
