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.

Mobile Forensics

DIGITS LLC Mobile Forensics Over the last several years, the world of mobile forensics has seen a rapid evolution. The way in which the mobile devices has evolved has also increased the amount of evidence forensic examiners can retrieve from devices such as cellphones, tablets and portable GPS units. Mobile devices and their operating systems are changing every day so this evolution is far from over. As mobile devices get smaller it seems they are becoming more complex. Most smartphones and tablet devices can now perform the same functions as a laptop or desktop computer and in many cases they outperform their larger counterparts in both functionality and speed!

Our cellphones are very personal to us. We keep them close and use them often. We take family pictures, store our appointments and communicate with those dear to us; however this personal nature is no different for those who would use the devices for nefarious purposes.  Forensic examiners can capitalize on this feeling of safety and extrapolate additional data which may not be found on other devices such as a laptop or desktop computer.

mobile-phonesClients should not overlook company owned mobile devices when considering DIGITS to conduct a digital forensic investigation. These devices can contain a wealth of evidence involving proprietary company information, inappropriate activity and much more. A company’s future may literally be in someone’s pocket.

Deleted data on mobile devices is not a problem for DIGITS. Our forensic techniques allow us to delve into areas of the phone that typical users cannot access to find deleted data which may be absolutely critical to an investigation.

All is not lost if our client has a mobile device that is missing. With certain mobile devices, forensic examiners may not even need the device to conduct their investigation. For example, Apple and BlackBerry devices often back their data up onto an individual’s computer giving examiners the opportunity to see vital evidence such as text messages, media files, contacts and more from the back up files on laptops, desktops or the cloud.

Companies who utilize mobile devices need to think about the potential risk these devices could pose. If you, or your company has a mobile device which requires high-tech forensic examination, don’t wait a moment longer, call DIGITS today.
