In an increasingly interconnected world, cybercriminals scent their opportunity to enrich themselves on your bill and not only inflict financial damage to you.
Data once distributed on the net can not be deleted. Therefore, it is of utmost importance to rehearse the emergency with so-called ethical hackers. In penetration tests, the ethical hacker uses the current tools of the scene like a cybercriminal, but without exploiting the vulnerabilities found. We log them and give you suggestions on how to close them if you wish, we also implement the solutions for you.
- Detection of existing vulnerabilities
- Standard-compliant auditing
- Informative and understandable test report with risk assessment
- regular reviews (for example quarterly)
- Certified Penetration Tester (Certified Ethical Hacker)
- Integration of penetration test as external audits in the context of an ISMS according to IT Grundschutz of BSI
INDIVIDUAL CONSULTING IS NECESSARY
No network is exactly the same as the other, but tailored to the needs of its users. There is never a standard solution with standard software. For this reason, it pays off for you to do a penetration test to minimize the risk of a successful attack. It is important to entrust a professional with the task, because not only the digital infrastructure is constantly evolving, but also the hacker scene. Our employees at EMSIC are certified by the EC Council as ethical hackers and thus qualified to check your system for data leaks.
TOP 3 SECURITY VULNARABILITIES
If hackers gain access to your digital infrastructure, they will hold your business in their hands. They potentially gain access to sensitive data, company secrets, customer and employee data, or can remotely control and disable your business. The obvious consequences are obvious: if the operation can not proceed properly, costs will occur due to delay and subsequent repair.
# 1: Fully automated blackmail and why you should not give in
If the hacker gains access to your network, he can instantly distribute the files on relevant platforms on the Internet. The English term to leak, let escape, in times of Wikileaks and data protection scandals for this fact in German already as leaken naturalized. Also, the resale of a found vulnerability is a popular source of income for hackers. Another possibility: He will extort you with the appropriate threat to encrypt your data irretrievably. Today, this is done electronically by means of ransomware, which excludes you from access to your data by reference to a non-traceable payment claim using cryptocurrency (for example Bitcoin). Responding to such claims usually means additional wasted money. The hacker has no reason to let you in again, even if you pay well.
# 2: Your good reputation is at stake
In addition to serious financial losses, damaging your reputation is also unavoidable. Even if the hacker does not find you dirty laundry to peddle, the mere announcement of such an attack will break down customer trust in your business. Trust is one of the core aspects of the customer-to-business relationship. No relationship of trust no customer loyalty and no customer loyalty no growth.
# 3: Punished and additionally liable
You find that an unauthorized person had access to your data. Can it get worse? Yes! The third aspect that awaits you in the event of a successful cyberattack is financial penalties by the authorities. Laws on the handling of sensitive data can be found in German territories, in BDSG, HGB, TMG and TKG and not least in the 2018 introduced General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). It is your duty to obey them. A violation of these guidelines constitutes a misdemeanor up to a criminal offense. Accordingly, you are held liable. This can again be very expensive for you: for particularly serious violations, the fine is up to 20 million euros or even up to 4% of the total worldwide annual sales in the previous fiscal year, whichever is the higher. These are costs that you can avoid.
