A cyberattack risk assessment systematically examines your organization’s potential vulnerabilities to cyber-attacks and the likelihood of such attacks occurring. It involves identifying, analyzing, and prioritizing potential security threats and evaluating the current security measures to mitigate them.
The goal of this assessment is to identify areas of risk and recommend steps that can be taken to reduce the risk of a successful attack, thereby improving your organization’s overall security posture.
Areas we Evaluate
- System Configurations
- Endpoint Protection
- External Threats
How the Cyberattack Risk Assessment Works
Our VP of Client Success will work with you to gain access to your system securely and deploy our tool.
After all the reports have been run, our technician and VP of Client Success will review them, noting anything that needs your attention. Once our internal review is complete, our VP will schedule a meeting with you to review the report and discuss our findings and recommendations.
Issues we can detect
- System Configurations are an important part of the cyberattack risk report. Some of the areas that we analyze are;
- Unsupported Operating Systems pose an inherent risk to the network environment because they can’t be patched.
- Account Lockout is an essential security measure that helps prevent unauthorized access to an account.
- Enabled Generic Accounts are accounts that don’t identify a unique individual. An example of a generic account may include “guest” or “user” and indicates that multiple individuals may be using the account.
- Reusing Local Accounts on Multiple Computers can increase the risk of unauthorized access, make it more difficult to track and manage access, reduce accountability, and limit control over password policies.
- Inconsistent Password Policy can reduce the effectiveness of passwords as a security measure, increase the risk of password reuse, and reduce compliance with security standards.
- Using unsupported software versions of Microsoft Office is a security threat because they no longer receive security updates, leaving the software vulnerable to known security issues.
- Failed patches can leave systems in a partially patched state, which hackers can exploit to gain unauthorized access to systems, steal sensitive information, or launch further attacks.
- Bitlocker is a built-in encryption feature in Windows that helps protect data on a computer’s hard drive from unauthorized access.
- External Threats
- Potential Compromised Account Credentials are user credentials found during a Dark Web scan. Attackers can use these credentials to access the user’s account and perform malicious activities.
- Significant External Vulnerabilities include scans of your company’s firewall and potentially other public-facing IPs. These vulnerabilities pose a potential risk to organizations and can result in severe consequences such as data breaches.
