The threats are advancing quicker than ever.

Cyber Security

Security has continued to be a force that effects all our businesses on a daily basis. That’s why it’s become so critical now to start preparing for when a breach happens and not if it happens. Continued montioring of systems, applications, information, network, operations, and end users are just a small part of the ever growing challeneges we are facing in today’s world of Cyber Criminals. We have seen an amazing increase in breaches and hacks leading to the most recent hack of Equifax in September of 2017 which truly brought to light the significant frocus needed truly have a plan in Cyber Security within your organization.

Threat Intelligence

Cyberthreat intelligence, when used correctly, can help defenders detect attacks during — and ideally before — a potentially damaging threat. Strong Connexions Threat Intelligence solution gives us comprehensive view of the web and mobile frontiers. Through our partnerships, we are monitoring 9M+ websites and 141+ mobile app stores daily, adding more site and app store crawls continually.

In addition to detecting instances of malware and other online threats to an organization, Strong Connexions enables our customers to create their own policies to detect instances that may bring the organization out of compliance. Multiple built-in and external enforcement options are available to mitigate or remediate incidents we discover.

Incident Response

Our incident handlers have vast experience in incident response procedures in a wide variety of industries. We work closely with internal teams to provide guidance and direction that can mean the difference between a thwarted threat and a disaster for your business. We work with your team through all phases of a security crisis to minimize the impact of the attack and put your company in a position to recovery quickly, while taking steps to ensure that similar attacks are prevented in the future. Our objectives are to:

  • Stop the attack
  • Identify what assets may have been affected
  • Collect all relevant evidence for civil, criminal, or regulatory proceedings
  • Remove the source of the breach
  • Mitigate the financial and reputational impact of the breach
  • Recommend and implement operational improvements to prevent similar breaches in the future

Social Engineering

The human element is usually the weakest link in any security system. Even the tightest security systems can be defeated by a single person acting in an unauthorized manner. An attacker will frequently take advantage of an end user’s lack of knowledge (security awareness) of proper security procedures — along with the innate desire of most people to be helpful — in order to gain illicit access to protected resources. This type of manipulation is referred to as a “social engineering” attack.

The purpose of this phase of a security risk assessment is to determine how successful a social engineering attack would be, and the level of risk incurred by a social engineering attack.

Based on information gathered during other phases of the assessment and discussions with your firm, Strong Connexions will craft and attempt one of the following social engineering attacks, customized to fit your company and the environment:

  1. Impersonation Attack
  2. Spear Phishing
  3. Media Drop

Multiple techniques may be used in the execution of any of these attacks, including, but not limited to, dumpster diving, physical and/or electronic eavesdropping, and physical and technical reconnaissance.
