A risk assessment is used as the foundation of any successful cybersecurity program. With this assessment, our team will identify risk factors and vulnerabilities that could lead to a potential cyberattack, helping security leaders prioritize the reduction of their organization’s largest risks.
Security Controls Assessment
During a security controls assessment (SCA), our team will test and/or evaluate existing management, technical, and operational security controls to determine if the controls are configured correctly, operating as intended, and producing the desired outcome with respect to specific security requirements.
Our cybersecurity consulting experts, following NIST 800-30’s risk assessment methodology, help identify all digital risks to your organization and create a roadmap for your security team to follow in order to eliminate all of your organization’s unacceptable risk in the most cost-efficient way possible.
Our cyber security consulting firm utilizes some of the world’s top hackers. These experts are critical when it comes time to put your network to the ultimate test; an emulation of a top-tier real-world adversary.
Leveraging industry-leading techniques, including many developed by our own hackers (and copied by many of our competitors), our experts put themselves in the enemy’s shoes and work to exploit any and all vulnerabilities in your network.
Our cybersecurity consulting services we offer a wide choice of penetration tests, tailoring our approach to your organization and security model.
Network Penetration Testing
Application Penetration Testing
- Web Application
- Mobile Application
We can also perform pure red team penetration testing, where we only focus on offense, or purple team penetration testing, where our red team partners with your blue team in a collaborative exercise to detect our attackers while they are in action.
Other technical assessments include:
Compromise Assessment – Our cybersecurity consulting company conducts a thorough survey of your network and its associated devices to detect any unknown data breach, malware, and signs of unauthorized access.
Vulnerability Assessment – Our cyber security consulting firm performs a systematic review of vulnerabilities within your network, both external and internal. We then perform a technical review and provide a report of discovered vulnerabilities and configuration errors, helping you prioritize which vulnerabilities to remediate.
Security Control Audit – Our information security consulting firm evaluates your IT environment’s physical configuration, software, operating system, information handling processes, and user practices to ensure you are operating in line with regulatory compliance standards.
A mostly automated process, a vulnerability scan searches your network for weaknesses by way of out-of-date and unpatched applications, misconfiguration, and more. With tens of thousands of known vulnerabilities, Buchanan has access to the most extensive CVE and security configuration support to make sure you have complete visibility of all of your vulnerabilities.
In addition to a vulnerability scan utilizing the market’s leading vulnerability management vendors, our team performs a systematic review of vulnerabilities within your network, both external and internal. We then perform a technical review and provide a report of discovered vulnerabilities and configuration errors, helping you prioritize which vulnerabilities to remediate.
Everything included in our vulnerability assessment, plus remediation, including patching, updates, and configuration changes.
Buchanan provides tabletop exercises as part of its suite of cybersecurity services.
Our cybersecurity consultants will guide you and your team through the process of responding to a simulated data security incident, providing hands-on training for all participants throughout.
This exercise will be used to identify flaws in the performance of your team’s reaction, including how well the company’s incident response plan was executed.
Our team considers the following during a tabletop exercise:
- What did your team do when they encountered a data breach?
- Who does what, when, how, and why?
- Have critical roles been assigned to IT, legal, law enforcement, company officers, etc.?
- Who is in charge of the response effort?
- What resources are available to supplement the effectiveness of your response?
Do you need to create standardized cybersecurity policies or update existing policies but don’t have the time or resources?
As part of our cybersecurity consulting services, Buchanan’s experts can help you get it done.
Our cybersecurity consultants can plan, write, and implement security policies on behalf of your organization to satisfy compliance and/or customer requirements.
Having lacklustre policies in place with no clear execution strategy can be potentially detrimental to your business operations and brand reputation. We can help.
As one of the most trustworthy cybersecurity consulting firms, Buchanan helps increase the impact of your cybersecurity team with our cyber training services.
Security Awareness Training
Nearly all successful cyber attacks require a user at a victim organization to make a mistake. From being tricked into giving away critical information via social engineering campaigns, to misconfigurations due to more technical users viewing security as an afterthought, security awareness training (SAT) has a place at all organizations of varying security maturity. Plus, SAT is usually a requirement of today’s leading cybersecurity compliance frameworks.
With Buchanan’s managed security awareness training service, your users will go from being liabilities to acting as a human firewall immersed in security culture.
Purple Team Training
Most organizations’ IT departments consist of red teams and blue teams:
- Red teams are the internal or external entities dedicated to testing the effectiveness of a security program by emulating hackers’ techniques.
- Blue teams are the internal cybersecurity team that proactively defends against both real attackers and red team practices.
Red teams and blue teams should work together to share insights, provide feedback, and uncover detection and prevention controls that can be implemented for improvement. Our purple team training service will reinforce the importance of collaboration amongst red and blue teams and highlight best practices to better position your company’s defense strategy.
