Mock Regulatory Cyber Exams

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 regulatory and cyber alerts, paste site and domain registration monitoring, and staff phishing testing to help protect your company from cyber attacks

We can help identify network vulnerabilities that could be exploited by a hacker and lead to a breach through vulnerability scanning or penetration testing. 

 

We can help your firm better understand payment flow and fraud risk mitigation opportunities with payment flow review, risk analysis, and reporting.

Microsoft Office 365 Security and Cloud Assessments

Companies are increasingly moving to cloud-based services such as Microsoft® Office 365®. Many companies do not take full advantage of the available security settings, which can dramatically impact the security and regulatory posture of your environment. This is also true of other cloud environments. Our assessment can help determine whether your company’s cloud environment is configured to protect user identities, enable compliance oversight obligations, and identify data loss. Based on our findings, we can assist your company with developing a practical action plan to address key risks.
