Cyber Security and Network Defense
Halt - what goes there? Friend or foe?
With the ever increasng risk of a serious cyber attack crippling the UK's Critical National Infrastructure looking ever more likely, can your organisation afford to take the risks or bury its head in the sand and pretend it won't happen to you?
Years ago, e-mail was the main culprit for much of the sophisticated electronic attacks. While this is still the vast majority of the case, more attacks are resulting from visits to legitimate – but compromised websites.
All the latest statistics point to a huge increase in criminals and extremist organisations turning their hand to developing sophisticated electronic attack capabilities. Organisations must be as well defended and prepared as they possibly can. Equally organisations must also be able to react swiftly and decisively WHEN an attack is successful.
With over 7 years experience in the Cyber Security Arena, 4Secure has the relevant skills and expertise to help create robust defences and also develop strong, easy to follow incident reponse processes. Simply having a well configured firewall, up to date Anti-Virus and a fully patched system are no longer enough, some of the areas of further consideration are:
- User Education/Awareness (in our opinion this is a key component)
- Whitelisting (Only allow the files and sites you want, not the ones you don't)
- SSL scanning (particularly for larger organisations)
- Analysis of Malware, ActiveX and Java code including malicious PDF's
- IDS Deployment and Configuration
None of the above needs to be too expensive, and striking the right balance is key. Allowing 4Secure to formulate a pragmatic, structured approach to your Cyber Security needs will greatly reduce any uncertainty, and deliver a genuinely workable and appropriate programme.
