ASSESSMENT & TESTING

Cybersecurity Posture Assessment

Strengthening your cybersecurity posture for increased resilience and ROI.
Overview

A Cybersecurity Posture Assessment is a valuable first step for any organization wanting to identify where they’re at, what they’re missing, and what they need to do to increase their cybersecurity maturity level. Unlike a penetration test or a standard information security audit, a Cybersecurity Posture Assessment provides C-Level Executives with clarity and direction in terms of their organization’s cybersecurity posture, maximizing the ROI of their security-related expenses.

The posture assessment integrates all facets of cybersecurity into one comprehensive assessment approach, providing an overall view of your organization’s internal and external security posture. When complete, Breadcrumb will provide your organization with an actionable and pragmatic cybersecurity roadmap, detailing quick-win recommendations and long-term strategic goals.

Key Deliverables:

  • Identifying and categorizing the value of organizational data
  • Defining the cyber risks and threat exposure of sensitive data
  • Evaluating whether appropriate, reliable and efficient security measures are in place
  • Recommending a concrete action plan (i.e., a ‘cybersecurity roadmap’) to better mitigate exposures and strengthen cybersecurity defenses

Control Review Strategies

Vulnerability Assessment

Automated assessment of IP connected assets for known vulnerabilities/CVEs

Wireless Topology

Man-in-the-middle susceptibility, rogue AP detection, endpoint de-authentication

Active Directory Security

Credential disclosure, account control, in-depth crypto-review of all AD passwords)

Malware/AV Defenses

Signature evasion, DEP/ASLR exploitation, common hash detection

Network Protocols

Isolation of un-encrypted channels and unsecured network services

Boundary Probing

External probing, IPS evasion, isolation of attack surfaces and unfiltered ports, VPN interrogation

Common Assessment Categories

IT Audits

IT audits provide insight into potential gaps in processes and procedures in a technology environment. Audits identify problem areas by reviewing how well technology controls are designed and implemented.

Pentration Testing

Penetration testing is a proactive approach to discovering exploitable vulnerabilities in your computer systems, network, and web applications. Gaining an understanding of these vulnerabilities will enable you to resolve issues before an attacker interrupts business operations with a devastating security breach.

Cybersecurity Consulting

Breadcrumb consultants meet with clients to gain an understanding of their organizational culture, risk tolerance levels, regulatory environment, and industry pressures. This allows the team to approach information security using a risk-based methodology, enabling customization of each solution.

Compliance and Controls

Breadcrumb will help discover a balance of risk management and security without compromising your organization’s mission and budget.

Security Awareness and Training

When implemented properly, security awareness and training activities can lead to greater reporting of suspected attempts to compromise an organization’s critical assets, and fewer instances of employees falling prey to cyber threats and tactics.

Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery

Business continuity and disaster recovery planning are critical to a business’s ability to weather interruptions to business functions and recover in case of a disaster. We help you identify critical assets and plan accordingly.
