Cyber Defence

One of the main issues facing businesses is complacency when it comes to cyber defence.  All businesses are at risk from cyber-attacks. Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are especially vulnerable because they lack the resources to keep barriers in place and to recover from loss. According to the Ponemon Institute’s 2017 report, 61% of small businesses experienced a cyber-attack in 2017, up from 55% in 2016. Cyber criminals are indiscriminate. Whether you’re a multinational corporation or a small business, where there is a weakness, they will try to exploit it.

Here are some of the services Kindus can offer to protect your business against cyber-attacks:

  • Company Reconnaissance – Kindus will investigate the external facing aspects of your organisation. Your web pages, email etiquette, published materials and responses to verbal enquiries. We will report on what we found out about your company and advise on what confidential information that you could be exposing to potential hackers.
  • Social Media Assessment – Kindus will look at the social media exposure of your company. We will use company media pages and tweets, then follow through links and comments to build up a picture of your company, its organisational structure, your employees and contacts. This information can be used by hackers to build up a fake identity to fool your company into revealing confidential information.
  • External Network Assessment – Kindus will scan your network remotely and identify vulnerabilities that someone could use to access your data without your knowledge.
  • Phishing Emails – Phishing emails attempt to get confidential information from your staff by appearing to be from genuine employees or company contacts. Kindus will investigate possible sources of phishing emails, chase down their origin and educate your staff to recognise and report future phishing incidents.
