Cyber Consulting

Our focus is on consulting, research and training in cyber security. We act as trusted advisors to our clients so they can focus on what they do best.

Unlike many other cyber security companies, we don’t sell security products or software.

CISO as a Service

Our CISO as a Service (CaaS) clients enjoy a unique experience working with our cyber security expert who joins their teams, and acts as a liaison connecting their business objectives with the world of cyber security. Our CISO learns the business, maps the security landscape, understands the risk appetite and consults on risk remediation based on all moving parts of the business. We fit the CISO role to the size and requirements of your business and bring our vast experience without the hassle of having to add any FTEs to your team.

We hold CISO positions in many businesses worldwide and in various industries such as banks, medical organizations, biotech and hi-tech, retail, aviation, construction, real estate, and many more. Our customers enjoy the unique experience of a true partnership with our CISOs within their organization and enjoy the support of everyone on CyTech’s team of professionals.

Being a CISO is our passion and it is what we do best.

Security Regulations

Security governance and compliance are composed of the structure and processes that ensure effective decision making and the optimal use of IT to meet organizational and regulatory goals. Effective governance needs to be designed purposefully with business objectives in mind.  Compliance is not one department’s responsibility; it involves factions from across the entire organization. As the custodian of information, IT is in an excellent position to co-champion compliance projects with the CISO and benefit from their successes.  IT is not responsible for understanding the full legal and regulatory requirements facing the organization.

Security governance and compliance are two languages you need to be fluent in in order to properly align them with your organizational strategy. Our team of professionals will help you get through the complex maze of cyber security regulations and compliance standards such as GDPR, HIPAA, ISO27001, PCI DSS, and Critical Infrastructure Protection Regulations.

Focusing on compliance over security doesn’t address the risks.

Privacy Protection

The need for privacy has been around for centuries long before the first digital computer started processing the first electrical pulse back in 1936. We are living in a contradictory situation where on one hand we have a basic need to communicate and share our life with our immediate surrounding environment, but on the other hand, we are concerned about our privacy and the information others can have on us. The more advanced we become in terms of technology, the more concerned we are about privacy.

Security and Privacy are two completely different languages that require a completely different skillset and understanding of the regulatory requirements.

With the latest movement in the world of compliance toward a more private computerized world, the tables are now turned, and organizations must be able to present their efforts to keep an individual’s data private and protected from unauthorized disclosure. Regulators work mainly by trends and not necessarily by numbers.

Our privacy framework will help you present your efforts to all.

Risk Management

A formal risk management strategy doesn’t mean trying to mitigate every possible risk.  It means exposing the organization to the right amount of risk. Taking a formal risk management approach allows an organization to carefully choose which risks it is willing to accept. Organizations with high risk management maturity will vault themselves ahead of competition because they will be aware of which risks they need to prepare for, which risks to ignore, and which risks to take.

IT risk is a business risk and therefore, accountability for IT risks and the decisions made on how  to address them should made jointly by the IT and the business.

Proactive risk management that translates IT risk into business language illustrates that IT decision-making is focused on how IT can add to and avoid detracting from the business value. Our consultants bring extensive experience in IT risk identification and management to the table.  Our methodologies and unique toolset are based on a deep understanding of your business and how cyber security risks work.

Hoping for the best is not a risk management strategy.

Application Security

Security is often not the focal point in application development.  Performance and time to market have higher priority.  Security is becoming increasingly important as applications are being distributed more through APIs. Without embedding key security practices, organizations risk the loss of reputation, intellectual property, frustrated end users, and high costs to reactively amend breaches.  Attacks can happen at any time and on any exposed application and can last from a few minutes to several weeks.

Left unaddressed, organizations will face compliance conflicts, loss of competitive advantage, and will be open to lawsuits.

Our team of experts can identify weaknesses in your applications and your application development processes and will work closely with your team of developers to maximize security of your home-grown applications and services.

We will assess your applications and pinpoint your security gaps.

Penetration Testing

Given the fast-paced change of today’s business environment and technological innovations, organizations need to take a proactive approach to managing controls, or otherwise put their business at serious risk. Organizations are embracing new technological opportunities without implementing proper controls to mitigate new risks, despite the significant impact of a security breach.

Compliance-related liabilities cost a lot more than establishing and maintaining an effective system of internal controls.

Our experts will challenge the controls you have in place, and pinpoint areas where controls are absent, to make sure your organization is as protected as you expect it to be. CyTech’s Penetration Test Methodology covers all three aspects of information security: People, Process and Technologies, and is based on the vast and rich experience of our experts in both military and civilian cyber security attack and defense vectors.

Our team is here to be your trusted cyber-security advisor.

Digital Forensics

Digital Forensics accelerates the identification of root cause analysis and provides constant visibility into the network. Forensic analysis provides real-time visibility into network/application behavior with the capability to search for indicators of compromise across endpoints and minimize the impact of attacks. To further understand the type of attack, affected devices, the threat actor responsible, and any additional motives, we will need to look into basic endpoint telemetry and data collection, run remote investigation over the network, and examine live resurrected, reconstructed fragments of hard drives and memory/media dumps.

A good digital forensic will expedite incident response processes (decreased cost, complexity, and time), enable threat hunting for captured Indicators of Compromise (IOCs), and will break down the kill chain to identify patient zero and actor Tactics, Techniques and Practices (TTPs).

Our forensic team will help your organization gain better visibility into your network

Incident Response

Security incidents are going to happen whether you’re prepared or not. Ransomware and data breaches are just a few of the threats that organizations have to deal with. Making the time to formalize response plans in advance can save you significantly more time and effort down the road. When an incident strikes, don’t waste time deciding how to remediate. Rather, proactively identify your response team, optimize your response procedures, and track metrics, so that you can be prepared to jump to action. Having a formal incident response document to meet compliance requirements is ineffective if no one is adhering to it.

The effective and efficient management of incidents involves a formal process of preparation, detection, analysis, containment, eradication, recovery, and post-incident activities. Analyze, track, and review results of incident responses regularly, because without a comprehensive understanding of incident trends and patterns, you can be reattacked by the same attack vector.
