Our experience shows that cyber attacks that are frequently successful, and damaging business agility, are unrelenting: they are real, they are complex and they are credible. Many organisation are unaware just how exposed they are to such threats because IT infrastructure are not fully or correctly enumerated for their significance, and vulnerabilities remain unidentified.

Understanding exposure to cyber attacks is key to enable continued business operation. This includes knowing what data and systems are under your control, as well as what vulnerabilities remain hidden and therefore not remediated. As maintenance and implementation of fixes for such vulnerabilities can be prohibitively expensive, a reliable threat attack analysis is required to address those that would cause most damage. Sustained analysis and reporting of potential and identified attacks forms part of a preventative and detectable defence posture.

Jirasek Security has developed a methodology that brings good practice processes, training and technology to help in this area.
