Now that everything is digital, companies, be they large groups or SMEs, are more exposed than ever to risks of cyber attacks, industrial espionage, digital fraud or hacking. If you want to protect yourself from cyber-attacks, our experts are there to help.
Espionage, thefts of information, service denial attacks, ransomware, malware, bogus boss scams, business email compromise (BEC)… a host of threats exist out there to endanger a company’s information system. In this regard, 2017 was marked by two major ransomware attacks (WannaCry and Petya), which affected many businesses worldwide. Some IT security experts believe that 2017 was a record year for ransomware scams. Experts believe that this trend will continue to grow.
Rapidly changing legislation
While attacks on information systems are on the increase, personal data protection laws are growing ever more rigorous. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will come into force in May 2018, and will impose a heavy responsibility on companies in terms of data protection. Any breaches of data protection laws will be punishable by fines representing up to 4% of the company’s annual turnover.
Detecting spyware within your company
Our digital forensics experts can detect the presence of spyware on your computers, telephones, tablets or on your IT system.
IT security audits
To assess the security level of an information system, it is necessary to perform a “pen test”, in which attempts are made to penetrate the system. Our experts, whose background is in the world of defence and information systems security in the private sector, will assume the role of a hacker who is seeking to carry out an unauthorised intrusion into your information system, in order to spy on you or sabotage your organisation.
Our pen tests serve several purposes:
- identifying flaws/weaknesses in your company’s information system,
- testing the response speed of the information security team,
- providing personalised advice.
IT-security training and awareness-raising for staff
Because the initial cause of information leaking out of companies is often unintentional and depends primarily on whether – or not – your staff adhere to good practice, we organise bespoke training courses, tailored to your needs.
Our people will train your staff in social engineering techniques and raise their awareness of the risks they face on social media. They will also help with putting in place alert-raising procedures to limit the risks of bogus boss scams, and similar risks posed by business email compromise.
