The Challenge

Rayner CEO, Tim Clover, was keen to capture the exposure of his organisation to cyber threats and, therefore, the associated corporate risks. Tim requested Xpertex to conduct a Cyber Assessment on his organisation to ascertain the threat.

Tim wanted to ensure the following as part of the engagement:

  • Improved organisational awareness of Cyber Risks
  • Honest view of the capability of his organisation by testing without forewarning
  • The engagement would support corporate governance
  • Engage with a trusted supplier (strategic advisor)

The Solution

Xpertex undertook two assessments of the organisation to help evaluate the security culture and corporate awareness of cyber threats:

Social Engineering Campaign – Phishing for account credentials

  • Scan Internet for publicly available information
  • Target staff with a phishing email
  • Collect results and reuse results to gain access to systems

Vulnerability Assessment – Look for Technical Vulnerabilities

  • Examine the external infrastructure from internet
  • Scan discovered systems for information
  • Scan discovered systems for vulnerabilities
  • Provide a list of remediation activities

Reporting Examples

  • Provide clear precise information of discoveries
  • Clear action plan
  • Clear strategic objectives to support the client

Business Benefits

  • Cyber risk awareness significantly enhanced
  • Corporate cyber maturity/culture was enhanced
  • The assessment has assisted in the creation of a cyber-strategy and therefore helped to reduce the cyber risk, ensuring the organisation can preserve its competitive edge, cash-flow, profitability, legal, regulatory and contractual compliance and commercial image
  • Controls were put in place to help preserve the confidentiality, integrity and availability of electronic information assets
  • Ensure that ‘Top-Down Cyber Leadership’ adopted to better support successful implementation of controls
