Threat and Vulnerability Assessments

Identifying and understanding what threats you are vulnerable to and what may already be on your network is the first step to protecting your data.

CDS Vulnerability and Network Threat Assessments utilize up to the minute vulnerability and threat intelligence to aid in the discovery and analysis of where your systems are vulnerable to a breach and what threats may already exist on your network.

Phishing Assessments

Phishing and Spear Phishing are responsible for the majority of Cybersecurity breaches we hear about today. Because users are so inundated with emails and under pressure and deadlines, these email attacks are still very successful and very dangerous. Threat actors can be very convincing with emails, especially targeted, spear phishing emails. Open rates as high as 70% have been shown in recent studies for well crafted spear phishing campaigns and generic phishing emails get a 30% to 60% open rate among untrained end users. These statistics should open the eyes of most business owners, CIO’s and CISO’s.

Penetration Testing

Penetration Testing (or pentest for short) is a real-life test of trying to utilize known (and sometimes unknown) exploits, social engineering and other techniques and attacks to gain access to resources and data inside an organization that should be protected from unauthorized access. These tests are used to determine what systems are vulnerable to attack before an actual attack happens, so that an organization can close those gaps or mitigate the risk associated with known and unknown vulnerabilities.

Cybersecurity Awareness Training

Training employees is a critical element of cybersecurity. Employees need to understand the value of protecting customer and colleague information and their role in keeping it safe. They also need a basic grounding in other risks and how to make good judgments online.

Most importantly, they need to know the policies and practices you expect them to follow in the workplace regarding Internet safety. Click here to learn about our in-person end-user awareness training…

Cybersecurity Evaluations

CDS’s Cybersecurity Evaluation is based off the CERT Resilience Management Model and follows the recently established NIST Cybersecurity Framework. It is a voluntary, non-technical (to an extent) assessment to evaluate the operational resilience and Cybersecurity capabilities of an organization.

Intrusion Detection and Prevention

According to recent cybersecurity surveys, the average time to detect a breach is 229 days! (that’s about 7 months). How much data would you lose if hackers have access to your network for 7 months?
