If your system is NOT assessed yearly, it can trigger a bad actor to utilize ransomware to strike your system and hold your data ransom. Your information is your company, and you must do everything within your power to make everyone in your company understand how crucial it is to protect it.
Put Security Controls In Place To Fight Cyber Breach.
In today’s connected world, organizations must proactively fight cyber breaches. Controls must be implemented, constantly updated, and monitored to keep the bad guys out. You can no longer install Antivirus on your laptop and desktops and think that will be good enough to keep the bad guys out. Hackers can use many connected devices on your network to take your business offline. There are printers, cameras, doorbells, smart TVs, and many more IoT devices that can be hiding places for hackers.

Wireless Access Point Audits:
Due to the growing need for wireless networks and smartphones everywhere, wireless networks have become the primary target for cybercrime. The idea behind building a wireless network system is to provide easy access to users, which may open the door to attackers. In addition, many wireless access points need to be updated infrequently, if ever. This has given hackers an easy target to steal unsuspecting users’ identities when they connect to public Wi-Fi.
Because of this, it is imperative to Audit wireless networks for misconfigurations and anything that may need an update that is part of the Wi-Fi system. Our team evaluates the actual security, effectiveness, and performance to get an honest, in-depth review of the condition of a network.
Are you looking for cyber consulting services to protect your assets?
Cyber Security Consulting Ops provides consulting services in the following areas. Unified Threat Management, Enterprise Security Solutions, Threat Detection and Prevention, Cyber Threat Protection, Threat Protection, and Network Security. Cyber Security Consulting Ops works with small and large businesses and homeowners. We fully understand the scope of the threat landscape, which is growing daily. Regular Antivirus is not sufficient anymore. Network and anti-malware protection must be implemented together, along with customer education. This is how our company can educate all our clients about cyber security.
Ransomware is an ever-evolving form of malware designed to encrypt files on a device, rendering any files and the systems that rely on them unusable. Malicious actors then demand ransom in exchange for ransomware. Ransomware actors often target and threaten to sell or leak exfiltrated data or authentication information if the ransom is not paid. In recent months, ransomware has dominated the headlines, but incidents among the Nation’s state, local, tribal, and territorial (SLTT) government entities and critical infrastructure organizations have been growing for years.
Employees are your eyes and ears in your organization. Every device they use, emails they receive, and programs they open may contain malicious codes or viruses in Phishing, Spoofing, Whaling/Business Email Compromise (BEC), Spam, Key Loggers, Zero-Day Exploits, or some Social Engineering Attacks. For companies to mobilize their employees as a force against these attacks, they offer all employees cyber security awareness training. This cyber awareness training should go well beyond sending employees simulated phishing emails. They must understand what they protect and their role in keeping their organization safe. In addition, they must know that they are partnering with your organization. Let our interactive cyber awareness training help your employees understand the landscape of scams and social engineering used by criminals so they can protect your assets.
IT Support Services:
Information technology, known as IT, refers to methods and processes that use computers, websites, and the Internet. Considering that we live in an era where almost everything is computer-driven, all IT-related functions and tools need support and maintenance. This is where IT support services come into the picture—helping all IT-related issues such as network setup, database management, cloud computing, etc. These services aim to ensure that all IT-related functions work seamlessly. This is where Cyber Security Consulting Ops comes in. We can take over your IT department and provide all needed supported services to help free necessary resources to invest in other parts of your business. At the same time, our IT and Cyber Security teams keep your assets safe from malicious activities.
24×7 Cyber Monitoring:
Companies must maintain customer satisfaction, retention, and loyalty in today’s environment. As more sophisticated enterprise and cloud applications deploy off-site in remote data centers, fulfill your demands for increased 24×7 IT operations support and greater visibility with our team. Resolve any advanced services issues for your different environments, including SaaS, Hybrid-cloud, Enterprise, SMB, and high-growth web properties. Cyber-attacks are now the norm, so organizations must see the threats as they try to penetrate their firewall or get on the inside using social engineering. This is where our monitoring services can help detect malicious activities inside or outside of your network.
Wireless Penetration Testing Approach:
There are several potential attacks against wireless networks, many due to a lack of encryption or simple configuration errors. Wireless penetration testing identifies security vulnerabilities specific to a wireless environment. Our approach for wireless penetration penetrating your wireless network is to run a suite of cracking tools against it. Hackers can penetrate your Wi-Fi network if it is misconfigured. Therefore, it is essential to have your Wi-Fi system hardened to eliminate or drive hackers from stealing your valuable data. Our approach uses the password combination & sniffing technique for cracking unsecured wireless networks.
What Is a Web Application?
A web application is software that can be manipulated to carry out malicious activities. This includes websites, emails, apps, and many other software applications.
You can think of web applications as open doors to your home or business. They include any software application where the user interface or activity occurs online. This can include email, a retail site, or an entertainment streaming service. With web applications, a user must be able to interact with the host’s network to serve up the content they are after. Suppose a web application is not hardened for security. In that case, it’s possible to manipulate the application to go back into the host database to send you any data you or an attacker request, even if it is sensitive information.
What Is A Vulnerability Assessment Scan?
A vulnerability assessment is a process of identifying, quantifying, and prioritizing (or ranking) the vulnerabilities in a system. The overall objective of a Vulnerability Assessment is to scan, investigate, analyze, and report on the level of risk associated with any security vulnerabilities discovered on public, internet-facing devices and to provide your organization with appropriate mitigation strategies to address those vulnerabilities. The Risk-Based Security Vulnerability Assessment methodology has been designed to comprehensively identify, classify, and analyze known vulnerabilities to recommend the right mitigation actions to resolve the security vulnerabilities discovered.
A Penetration test is a detailed hands-on examination performed after the vulnerability scan. The engineer will use the scanned findings of vulnerabilities to create scripts or find scripts online that can be used to inject malicious codes into the vulnerabilities to gain access to the system.
Cyber Security Consulting Ops will always offer our customers vulnerability scanning instead of a Penetration Test because it doubles the work and may cause outages if a customer wants us to do PenTesting. However, they should understand there is a higher risk for an outage, so they must accept the risk of possible outage because of code/script injections into their systems.
PCI DSS Compliance:
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a set of security standards designed to ensure that ALL companies that accept, process, store, or transmit credit card information maintain a secure environment. In addition, if you are a merchant of any size accepting credit cards, you must comply with PCI Security Council standards. This site provides credit card data security standards documents, PCI-compliant software and hardware, qualified security assessors, technical support, merchant guides, and more.
The Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard (DSS) and PCI Approved Scanning Vendors (PCI ASV) exist to fight the rising tide of credit card information data loss and theft. All five major payment card brands work with PCI to ensure merchants and service providers protect consumer credit card information by demonstrating PCI compliance through PCI compliance testing. Gain PCI scan compliant with vulnerability scanning by a PCI-approved scanning vendor. Detailed reports identify 30,000+ security holes exposed by our vendor 30,000+. Tests and contain actionable fix recommendations.
Who must comply with HIPAA privacy standards and be compliant?
As required by Congress in HIPAA, the Privacy Rule covers the following:
-Healthcare providers conduct certain financial and administrative transactions electronically. These electronic transactions are those for which the Secretary has adopted standards under HIPAA, such as electronic billing and fund transfers.
The HIPAA Privacy Rule!
The HIPAA Privacy Rule establishes national standards to protect individuals’ medical records and other personal health information and applies to health plans, healthcare clearinghouses, and healthcare providers that conduct certain healthcare transactions electronically. The Rule requires appropriate safeguards to protect the privacy of personal health information and sets limits and conditions on the uses and disclosures that may be made of such information without patient authorization. The Rule also gives patients rights over their health information, including rights to examine and obtain a copy of their health records and to request corrections.
