Can our ethical hackers access your systems and confidential data through your remote access points?

In a new business environment that must contend with both pandemics and cyber crime, allowing your employees to work remotely offers considerable benefits. However, it is important to understand the risks. If your networks are compromised, how far can an attacker get? What systems or data might they access?

Identify and set test objectives: Prioritise specific systems and assets to target, where we will assess:

  • Configurations
  • Patching
  • Authentication
  • Encryption
  • Segmentation
  • Information leakage

This test will be performed using IT Governance’s proprietary security testing methodology, which is closely aligned with the SANS, OSSTMM (Open Source Security Testing Methodology Manual) and OWASP (Open Web Application Security Project) methodologies.

The tester will attempt to compromise two or three of your most important systems, as chosen by your or with help from our expert. Based on your needs, we will identify a set of objectives (e.g. determining what level of access an attacker could gain) or scenarios (e.g. the impact of a phishing attack or an attacker exploiting leaked credentials) for testing.

Who is this service for?

This service is suitable for most organisations that use remote access solutions such as VPNs and remote desktop software.
