Cyber security is indispensable for any modern company.
Cyber security is a set of methods and technologies applied to protect data and information systems from internal and external threats in terms of their availability, confidentiality and integrity. The focus of cyber security is information technology and, in addition to technical solutions, involves organisational, legal and human aspects.
Measuring cyber security means being aware of cyber risks. By identifying threats, vulnerabilities and risks we can assess what countermeasures we should apply to manage cyber risks within a certain tolerance threshold. These countermeasures can then be assessed by our cyber security experts.
Any decision must consider the threats from the cyber world. Protecting company know-how is an opportunity and a need for survival, whereas protecting the personal data of third parties is a legal obligation (e.g. for GDPR).
All businesses should have a sound cyber risk strategy that includes checking security levels and preventing attacks. This means that all businesses should have a procedure in place to detect cyber threats so they can be contained and managed. A specific plan to handle cyber incidents, which also defines how digital data should be subsequently processed so that it can be used as digital evidence.
BIT4LAW also offers cyber security support services, which include digital footprint risk reports, vulnerability assessments, penetration testing and incident response solutions.
Digital footprint risk reporting
We offer businesses a digital footprint risk service, which identifies the scope of their exposure to cyber threats.
A vulnerability assessment analyses the security status of a client’s IT and electronic systems.
The vulnerability test is used to detect weaknesses (e.g. potential points of entry for cyber attacks) in the company’s technological infrastructure and consists of two phases:
- Checking the known vulnerabilities in a client’s IT systems;
- A report on the vulnerabilities found and guidance on how to correct them.
The penetration test is the next stage after the vulnerability assessment and involves simulating attempts at hacking into client’s systems. The attempted attack uses various techniques including:
- Known exploits for certain vulnerabilities;
- Social engineering;
- Testing the security level of wireless networks;
- Attacks on web applications;
- Indirect attacks via breached clients;
- DOS attacks and stress tests to measure efficiency and resistance to intensive use.
At the end of the tests, the client receives a written report on the work carried out and the results. The methods used and the risk levels assessed are agreed with the client. Cyber security services are offered subject to a release provided by the client.
