In today’s rapidly changing business environment, exclusive knowledge constitutes a significant business advantage and a game-changing tool. The ability to obtain timely, relevant and precise information and to draw the correct inferences from its analysis is essential for business development and success. Obtaining this edge requires superior intelligence skills and a well-planned and carefully executed research plan. Phronesis provides in-depth intelligence and due-diligence for highly complex business situations and help clients to not only identify business opportunities, but also to gain a better understanding of their business environment whilst minimizing financial risks and uncertainty.
Whilst robust defense systems are an essential foundation for any cyber-security plan, it is necessary, in today’s fast-moving world of technology and diverse cyber-threats, to expand the perimeter of security in order to sufficiently safeguard existing systems and data. Access to high-grade intelligence mechanism allows a client to prepare for any surprise attack, as that would provide ample forewarning to prepare an effective response system.
Combining Penetration Testing with a Vulnerability Assessment to identify and validate threats or weaknesses that could compromise IT security. Our security experts use hands on scanning techniques to perform vulnerability assessments that identify the highest potential risk to your environment. Then conduct Penetration Test (Ethical Hacking) to manually simulate real-world network attacks, mimicking the tactics employed by malicious outsiders. The result is an IT security report of findings and a detailed risk analysis with actionable recommendations to help a client to protect their IT security including network infrastructure, critical systems and confidential data.
It is the process of identifying and quantifying security vulnerabilities in an environment with an in-depth evaluation of a client’s information security posture, indicating weaknesses as well as providing the appropriate mitigation procedures to either eliminate those weaknesses or reduce them to an acceptable level of risk. Vulnerability Assessments would include the following steps:-
» Catalog assets and resources in a system
» Identify the security vulnerabilities or potential threats to each resource
» Assign quantifiable value and importance to the resources
» Mitigate or eliminate the most serious vulnerabilities for the most valuable resources
Phronesis consults on various tailor made Cyber Security Solutions and helps mitigate vulnerability assessment reports in information system, Computer Network, Perimeter Security and Access Control Protocols. It is often seen that most security solution providers furnish a comprehensive security solution but fail to give mitigation advisory support to help plug gaps or loopholes in the system,which are the follow up of an IT/ Physical Security Audit.
Cyber Forensics is the application of investigation and analysis techniques to gather and preserve evidence from a particular computing device in a way that is suitable for presentation in a court of law. The primary aim of computer forensics is to perform a structured investigation while maintaining a documented chain of evidence to trace and map the sequence of events on a computing device and identify the offender responsible for lapses, if any.

Given the recent trends, the C-Suite is a top target that most organisations unwittingly exempt from educating on cybersecurity perils and precautions. This might be because the C-Suite is busy with strategy and training is directed to mostly operational staff. Due to the high volumes of sensitive data the C-Suite consume and exchange, it can be extremely dangerous if their accounts fall into the possession of attackers as they will be able to access all your applications and network resources. For this reason, the C-Suite must know that their position is under attack and be readily included in security awareness training.
