At Xpertex, Cyber & Information Security means the protection and safeguarding of valuable digital assets and, whilst we embrace the digital age, we are always vigilant of the potential risks to an organisation’s IT infrastructure. We particularly focus on the ‘human factors’ relevant to your security, namely: your people, corporate culture and operational processes. Our cyber security professionals have a vast wealth of experience across public and private sector organisations. We always assess your needs first to develop a tailored solution that will secure your systems. Our core advisory services include the following:
Information Security forms the cornerstone of any Xpertex Cyber & Information Security advisory undertaking. Using international and industry specific standards, we help customers assess, present and treat risks to their assets ranging from sensitive customer data to Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) financial data. Xpertex assists clients to implement robust information risk management controls; document sets and operational processes to permanently reduce risk and help promote efficient management of sensitive corporate information. Vulnerabilities are high-lighted to ensure they are adequately protected against potential threats. Our threat intelligence-led mitigations and modelling ensures that remediation plans are representative and targeted at protecting our clients from their real, not generic threats.
THREAT & VULNERABILITY ANALYSIS
Threats to information and security are more prevalent than ever before. Systems are regularly under attack, from bulk XML-RPC (Remote Procedure Calls) to targeted web application and infrastructure attacks and denial-of-service. Most organisations are unaware of the extent of attacks on their systems and face a challenge in comprehending risks to their internal and external IT estate. Xpertex specialises in understanding risks to systems, people, and process by carrying out detailed vulnerability assessments early on in our client engagement. Findings from vulnerability analysis are used to seamlessly integrate a treatment plan with customers’ existing risk methodology. With regular vulnerability analysis across the customer’s estate and using our treatment planning expertise, we can demonstrate risk reduction in tangible and numerical terms which translate directly to operational cost savings.
DUE DILIGENCE AND MERGERS & ACQUISITION SUPPORT
Limiting the unknown factors in any mergers & acquisition activity is crucial to investment support. Xpertex offers a holistic due diligence service. Complementary to traditional financial due diligence, our services focus upon the individuals behind an organisation, namely, executives and persons with significant control. We also have a global-reach able to conduct both virtual and ‘on the ground’ due diligence in developed and developing regions.
Our approach to addressing the risk of social engineering attack is not limited to technical factors, but considers the human vulnerabilities and vectors employed by skilled actors to get access to a client’s built estate and IT assets. Xpertex helps clients to develop and employ countermeasures that can significantly reduce the disruption and loss incurred as the result of a social engineering attack.
OSINT – BASED INCIDENT MANAGEMENT & RESPONSE
Our discreet Open Source Intelligence collection and product can be used for a broad range of applications. When used in collaboration with on-the-ground surveillance and collection assets, it can provide a response to information breaches and support clients to achieve the effective containment of incidents.
