Cybersecurity Risk Assessments

Be proactive in your cyber security protection against malware and hackers

Just because your business has had a year without any cybersecurity breach doesn`t mean you will always be so fortunate. Hackers and malware are becoming ever more rampant and sophisticated, increasingly targeting the low-hanging fruit -- small and medium-sized businesses because of their low IT Cyber Security maturity levels. In this field the ground shifts often and quickly, what was fine 3 years ago can be quite obsolete or even become an actual vulnerability liability today. Don’t wait for an intrusion to happen before putting up safeguards.

When was the last time you had a Vulnerability Scan or a Penetration Test conducted on your environment?

Security Risk Assessments

We offer two types of audits:

  1. The Free Quick "Hands Off" systems check - This cyber security consulting is suitable for a smaller business with limited complexity where the owners are already aware there a some problems to be fixed. We send out two team members for an hour, one to interview the main technical point of contact or decision maker in the organisation and another to visually inspect the network, systems and passively obtain information through various means. A simple traffic light report is generated and Vertech's remediation/mitigation costs provided. Due to resource constraints we can only provide a small amount of these per quarter however to apply please fill the form below and we shall contact you to discuss.

  2. The Paid "Thud Factor" Full Risk Assessment & Report - Costing upwards of $2500 depending on your company size and complexity we will conduct a formal assessment utilising the CIS/SANS 20 v7.2 Security Framework to examine your environment from within & without whilst looking at factors such as People, Processes and Protections. We interview the management as well as staff, run credentialed vulnerability scans internally and external scans against any public facing systems such websites & firewalls. The information is gathered into a final report where the risks are prioritised by priority and potential impact to the business with the mitigation strategies and estimated costs provided such that you can hand the plan to your inhouse or existing IT provider to resolve.

Settling for the bare minimum in your cybersecurity strategy won’t protect you effectively. It goes way beyond Antivirus & Spam Filtering and it is an interative process with a Security Risk Assessment setting a baseline for an annual review to make sure you are staying on top of your game.

You may need vCISO and vCIO service to ongoingly improve your cyber security systems and we are able to support your business management and board decisons by providing appropriately skilled & experienced consultants to advise you on an ongoing basis which may be as little as 2 hours per month.

Ongoing cybersecurity support for your systems can be provided in the form of network security services for your business such as managed firewall and managed network services where the entire solution hardware, security subscriptions, maintenance and support are all included.
