Data security Attack Simulation

Determine how data can be stolen or your infrastructure can be taken offline

Data security simulation attacks

Investment by top management in cyber security is vital, and plunging them into the middle of a cyber attack is the best way to get their attention, says Marco Gercke, director for the Cybercrime Research Institute.

Infrastructure Attack Simulation

Our engineers conduct attacks on your IT infrastructure and other system entry points. Identify good & appropriate Appsec practices as well as uncover gaps and weaknesses to minimise threats.

Data security simulation attacks

Our engineers conduct attacks on your IT infrastructure to determine how data can be stolen or your infrastructure can be taken offline. This isn't just a network or application pen test - we validate identified vulnerabilities, follow chaining paths between vulnerable systems, and disclose which hardware and software applications are putting you at risk.

Reducing Data Risk of 3rd Party or Internally-Built Applications

Organisations depend on software applications (source of ~90% of data breaches), and those applications can be built in-house, outsourced to a partner, or purchased COTS software. Regardless of who builds them, you still need to understand the risks the application poses to your business so you can best secure that software in deployment.

Application Penetration Testing

Leveraging security testing techniques derived from our top-selling book "How to Break Software Security", our security engineers will employ manual attacks and specialized tooling to uncover vulnerabilities in your software. For both web and non-web applications, we follow a similar three step process:

Phase 1

Using sophisticated threat modeling techniques, our security team identifies the areas that attackers will likely exploit, and determine the magnitude of the loss should those areas be penetrated. The modeling activity prioritises the testing activities and highlights the areas where attacks could do the most damage, guiding the testing process for greatest effect.

Phase 2

Led by the prioritised threat model, the application develops a test plan that will guide the aggressive application penetration testing - applying not only the well known attacks and techniques that a hacker would typically employ, but proprietary attacks developed by Security Innovation that are designed to uncover deeper hiding vulnerabilities.

Phase 3

The application security team generates a detailed report that includes the complete threat model, the test methodology, the detailed findings for each identified threat area and severity ratings. The findings, along with appropriate remediation recommendations, are presented in a report and presented in person to the risk management team responsible for the application.
