Cyber Security at
Cyber Security requires significant financial and training investments in advanced technologies, which few companies have the luxury of funding. Let Micro-Data Systems handle these tasks for you to help ensure that your data and network are safe.
MDS offers a three Cyber Security Services that safeguards your network and systems: Vulnerability Assessments, Penetration testing, and Compliance Audits.
Vulnerability Assessments are designed to yield a prioritized list of vulnerabilities and are generally for our clients who already understand they are not where they want to be in terms of security. If you know your company has already encountered or may be open to security issues and simply need help identifying/ prioritizing them – we can help.
The more issues identified the better, so naturally a white box approach should be embraced when possible. The deliverable for the assessment is, most importantly, a prioritized list of discovered vulnerabilities (and often how to remediate).
Penetration Tests are designed to achieve a specific, attacker-simulated goal and should be requested by customers who are already at their desired security posture. A typical goal could be to access the contents of the prized customer database on the internal network or to modify a record in an HR system.
The deliverable for a penetration test is a report of how security was breached in order to reach the agreed-upon goal (and often how to remediate).
Compliance Audits are periodic reviews and evaluations that need to be conducted in IT and/or cyber security in order to satisfy the needs of the regulatory requirements (FISMA, PIC-DSS, SOX, SAS70, GLBA, HIPAA, etc). are met. Senior management and business process owners need to not only establish and maintain an adequate internal control framework, but also to assess its effectiveness on an annual basis.
Our team of compliance auditors have the expertise to analyze, report, and help correct deficiencies based on industry best practices.
