Protecting your cyber assets and critical data
Cyber security has never been simple. And because attacks evolve every day as attackers become more inventive, it is critical to properly define cyber security and identify what constitutes good cyber security.
Why is this so important? Because year over year, the worldwide spend for cyber security continues to grow: 71.1 billion in 2014 (7.9% over 2013), and 75 billion in 2015 (4.7% from 2014) and expected to reach 101 billion by 2018. Organizations are starting to understand that malware is a publicly available commodity that makes it easy for anyone to become a cyber attacker, and even more companies offer security solutions that do little to defend against attacks. Cyber security demands focus and dedication.
Cyber security protects the data and integrity of computing assets belonging to or connecting to an organization's network. Its purpose is to defend those assets against all threat actors throughout the entire life cycle of a cyber attack.
Kill chains, zero-day attacks, ransomware, alert fatigue and budgetary constraints are just a few of the challenges that cyber security professionals face. Cyber security experts need a stronger understanding of these topics and many others, to be able to confront those challenges more effectively.
The following articles each cover a specific cyber security topic to provide insights into the modern security environment, the cyber threat landscape and attacker mentality, including how attackers work, what tools they use, what vulnerabilities they target and what they're really after.

The rules of engagement in today's threat landscape are changing rapidly and as cyber-crime evolves, there is a security gap that can be exploited. As our dependency on technology further permeates our daily habits, the threats that exploit the security gap will have graver consequences.

Penetration-Testing"The biggest risk that an organization can face is assuming that they are secure when in fact they are vulnerable".
What type of penetration test do you want performed? For organizations new to penetration testing, we recommend starting with an external network penetration test, which will assess your Internet-accessible systems in the same way that an attacker anywhere in the world could access them. Beyond that, there are several options:
Our research driven Network Penetration Testing services are specifically designed to test entire IT Infrastructures or just individual component of IT network architecture like router, firewall, servers and client end devices. These services are ideal for HIPAA/HITECH, PCI/DSS, and other similar requirements. Typically we start these types of assessments with only a network connection on the corporate networks, but a common variant is what we call an "Insider Threat Assessment," where we start with one of your standard workstations and a standard user account.
Our Web Application Penetration Testing services are specifically designed for testing single Web Application, or entire application farms. These services are ideal for HIPAA/HITECH, and PCI DSS requirements 6.6 and 11.3.2. A review of custom web application code for security vulnerabilities such as access control issues, SQL injection, cross-site scripting (XSS) and others are part of this service. These are best done in a test or development environment to minimize impact to the production environment.
Wireless Attack and Penetration Testing are strategic and isolated attacks against the client's wireless systems. SecureBeans consultants will simulate hacking and attempt to identify, exploit, and penetrate weaknesses within these systems. A detailed security assessment also includes a survey of the location looking for unauthorized ("rogue") wireless access points that have been connected to the corporate network and are often insecurely configured.
Our team is dedicated to helping today's leading companies deliver secure mobile apps faster and more efficiently. SecureBeans has created a research-driven mobile testing methodology that incorporates guidance from the OWASP Application Security Verification Standard. SecureBeans' mobile security testing provides verification and validation across all major control categories, including authentication, session management, access control, malicious input handling, cryptography at rest, and much more..
