Vulnerability Assessment in Response to Cyber Attacks

Vulnerability Assessment - web

DIGITS LLC offers a complete suite of vulnerability assessment services that enable companies to identify critical security threats.

DIGITS LLC’s President and CEO, Michael McCartney, explains that “Congressman Chris Collins, Chairman of the Small Business Subcommittee on Health and Technology, outlined statistics that show that nearly 60 percent of small businesses will close within months after a cyber-attack. A recent report shows nearly 20 percent of all cyber-attacks are targeting small firms with less than 250 employees.”

In response to this alarming trend, DIGITS LLC released a complete suite of vulnerability assessment services that assist companies to identify critical security threats that may expose their data to an unauthorized third party.

McCartney continues to explain “Many companies are poorly equipped to take on the task of identifying their infrastructure pain-points and therefore, find themselves at a high risk for cyber-attacks and data breach.”

DIGITS LLC’s experts leverage their decades of information technology, computer security and investigative experience to assist their clients in identifying security vulnerabilities and help them develop a road map for remediating those threats.  DIGITS LLC provides a 3rd party security assessment and validation that follows a proven methodology and leverages industry best practices.  These types of assessments also reduce unauthorized access, data exfiltration and data manipulation as well as assist companies to comply with regulations such as PCI DSS, HIPAA / HITECH and NIST.

Examples of the services provided include: External Network Perimeter Vulnerability Assessment, Internal Network Vulnerability Assessment, Active Directory Reviews, WLAN Assessments, VoIP Assessments, OS Patch Management Assessment, Device Configuration Management Review, and Source Code Review of Company Developed Applications.
