Cyber security audits are particularly valuable to organisations that have yet to document their risks, vulnerabilities and threat exposure. It is also useful to organisations that have grown organically and implemented a suite of security controls but now find themselves overwhelmed by the threats they face due to the volume of communications they process on a daily basis. These communications can be anything from emails with videos, images, PDF or Office attachments to social media postings and hyperlinks using a variety of devices across multiple channels.
New regulations such as the EU GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) call for stiff penalties in case of a breach or hack resulting in lost personal data. One way to mitigate the consequences of a breach is to show that your organisation has followed government initiatives and taken the necessary steps to protect personal data to the extent possible.
A cyber security audit sets you off on the right foot by providing the basic cyber security groundwork on which to build your IT stack.
our working processin 3 steps
Every step taken by your organisation to capture, store and process information can be tested: the systems and buildings that the information is stored in, the transmission channels that transport it, and the processes and personnel that manage it.MORE ABOUT US +
planning & strategy
At this point, they are ready to develop the strategy for the attack. Thanks to the information they’ve gathered so far, they can decide which tools and techniques to use to best hit the system.
The phase is the Network Penetration Testing. Using the tools or techniques identified in the previous step, they exploit the vulnerability to break into the organisation.
We usually provide the organisation with a detailed report of the vulnerabilities found, the description of the attack they performed and recommended actions to secure your company.

Avoid downtime and Breach costs
Network downtime caused by a data breach can cost up to £3 million, with the average cost of a breach costing £36,500. Pen testing allows your organisation to help identify exploitable vulnerabilities proactively before they are exploited by a malicious attacker allowing you to intelligently plan remediation and give priority to critical and high level findings.
Penetration testing provides a severity ordered report, documenting vulnerabilities that are proven to be exploitable, removing false positives from the equation. Allowing your organisation to proactively identify which vulnerabilities are critical and which are less critical or false positives.
Meet Regulatory and Compliance Standards
Performing a penetration test helps companies and organisations address the general auditing requirements for PCI DSS. Testing also helps address ISO 27001 requirements by obtaining an organisations exposure to vulnerabilities and providing measures to remediate discovered issues.
Preserve Brand, Corporate image & customer confidence
Data breach, compromised accounts and exposed external data cost money and can negatively affect brand image and sales. Penetration testing helps identify and fix vulnerabilities that could be used to exfiltrate confidential, sensitive and personally identifiable information.
