Understanding the cyber landscape in which your business operates is fundamental to its security. We will work with your management team to address the critical questions about how fit for purpose existing systems, policies, people and procedures are.
Armed with that knowledge we create strategies which address the critical issues. Putting our clients in the best possible position to manage their risks is what we do every day.
We will also translate that strategy into action – whether you need to recruit the right team to implement it, want support to identify an outsourced solution and expert negotiation in its procurement or prefer to build skills into your existing team.
Not only can we test your technology, we can also test your team and then ensure that technical, operational and managerial staff are trained in the skills they need to be both security aware and equipped to respond to threats.
No business can afford to lose the trust of its customers by having its websites coming under threat from hackers. Our Security Operations Centre is staffed by experienced experts and dedicated to monitoring website security and delivering the protection you need to ensure your virtual shop window is secure.
'I thought it was really good and I learnt a lot of very practical things that I will use day to day as well as things that just simply helped me to understand the basics better.' 'I thought it was really, really good overall and thought Rob and Elliot were brilliant, credible and entertaining.' 'certainly the best cyber training I’ve done and amongst the best week long courses of any kind.' 'I thought the course was excellent.'
We are at the cutting edge of defence and security research, so our organisational cyber security needs to reflect that. Robert of The Cyber Security Expert works on the same plane, and his strategic thinking on our behalf has enabled us to develop a robust cyber security strategy and implement it across our IT infrastructure, management of IT provision and operational security. Cyber security requires a dynamic response and his regular training of both directors and staff has been fundamental in keeping us at the forefront of best practice. I can’t recommend his services highly enough.
Rob Pritchard of The Cyber Security Expert is a technical specialist with a rare trait, the ability to share that knowledge in a highly focused and constructive way to provide the very best technical training programmes. He developed our Cyber-Security for OSINT Analysts programme. It’s proved highly successful with clients who have large teams of analysts. Rob is particularly adept at reflecting our clients’ needs when creating bespoke courses and they appreciate both his ability to identify their requirements as well as his clear delivery style.
And hence weaknesses and vulnerabilities may go unnoticed (I say that of course off the back of one article, which I have already noted is lacking detail, so I may be talking nonsense).
It highlights one of the downsides of highly compartmentalised operations. The people who are responsible for uncovering networks of spies at home are never exposed to the mechanisms the home agency use to run it's own network of spies overseas
It was presumably multiple failures, including not exposing the system to peoples who's job it is to detect and analyse this kind of thing, and not considering how different the operating (and hence security) environment in China is.
A fascinating read and, if accurately reported, a pretty terrible failure on behalf of US agencies. There is, as you would expect, a lot of missing information. The comment about encryption at the end makes little sense as does the idea that a firewall was 'fscked up' twitter.com/SwiftOnSecurit…
@gcluley Yeah mine didn't go well either. I did get a C in computer studies. But that was it.
Listening right now. Surprisingly up to date for me and podcasts. twitter.com/riskybusiness/…
