Our expertise and people
Ethical (white hat) hackers
A white hat hacker, or ethical hacker, uses the very same techniques that more insidious attackers use to breach a network for real in order to test an organisation's IT security and identify any vulnerabilities. Our certified ethical hackers never perform penetration testing as a casual undertaking. Proper testing involves a great deal of planning, which includes obtaining express permission from the client to perform tests and then running those tests as safely as possible.
SOC (Security Operations Centre) specialists
SOCs are typically based around a Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) system, which aggregates and correlates data from various security feeds, such as IDS/IPS, firewalls, antivirus solutions, vulnerability scanners, etc. SIEM technology creates a dashboard for SOC analysts to monitor the security of the organisation.
Our SOC staff includes analysts, security engineers and SOC managers, who all perform malware & cyber-attack analyses and forensics.
Information Security Officers & Data Protection Officers
Our Governance, Risk & Compliance (GRC) Consultants have in-depth knowledge of and experience in the strategic and management aspects of Information Security and Data Privacy.
They typically have a strong background in these matters and have worked in a Security Officer / CISO / DPO role. They are fully conversant in ISO2700O series standards, ISAE 3402 (SOC reports), CobIT, PCI-DSS, GDPR and eIDAS compliance.
