Threat Intelligence, Phishing Testing, and Monitoring

Protect your company from cyber attacks

Cyber threats are constantly evolving, so it’s important to stay on top of new threats and address them as quickly as possible. We provide cyber alerts and ongoing monitoring to help protect your company from cyber attacks. We also offer phishing testing and monitoring services to protect your business.

Our solutions

Phishing Testing and Training

One of the simplest ways a hacker can penetrate your network is via email using a tactic called phishing, or, in a targeted effort, spear-phishing.  Successful phishing, vishing (telephone-based phishing), and spearphishing can lead to ransomware, payment fraud, and other cyber crimes. The FBI has reported that people lost $57 million to phishing schemes in 2019.

We deploy targeted email campaigns that are designed to test your employee’s ability to identify phishing threats. We use the results of our phishing tests as part of our staff security training, which covers phishing identification and other essential skills and tools for identifying threats and preventing data breaches.

We periodically issue timely alerts on cyber events and technology concerns that may be relevant to your business. Our alerts provide strategic guidance to help you protect your company and understand how to best prevent or remediate issues.

Domain Registration Monitoring & Paste Site Monitoring

Over 100,000 domains are registered every day, many for malicious purposes. We monitor newly registered domain names and alert you when a domain name that resembles your firm’s domain is registered so that your firm can take action to combat attempts to steal sensitive information or infringe on your firm’s intellectual property.

Hackers often post sensitive data about their victims or targets on anonymous paste sites to share with the broader hacker community. We monitor select anonymous paste sites for mentions of your firm’s domain or IP addresses, as these could be indicators of an upcoming or ongoing attack.
