SECURITY RISK ASSESSMENT SERVICES

Security threats, vulnerabilities and exposures impact every organization today by creating risks that must be controlled and managed. Companies that know the security risks they are facing and have taken action to manage them have a significant advantage over their competitors. To help our clients achieve this advantage, ZealSoft works with them to identify risks in their security infrastructure, applications and wireless technologies. ZealSoft uses the ISO 270001 standard as our best practice, our risk assessment process is shown in following model Based on leading practices standard we discovered most of the vulnerabilities in following areas:

  • Data content exposure
  • Internal and external network vulnerabilities
  • Application vulnerability
  • Wireless security vulnerabilities

Three Phases For Security Assessment

  • Initiating risk assessment process
  • Conducting and documenting the assessment
  • Reporting and ensuring that agreed upon actions are taken

System & Data Classification

Data Classification is the conscious decision to assign a level of sensitivity to data as it is being created, amended, enhanced, stored, or transmitted. The classification of the data should then determine the extent to which the data needs to be controlled / secured and is also indicative of its value in terms of Business Assets.
The classification of data and documents is essential if you are to differentiate between that which is a little (if any) value, and that which is highly sensitive and confidential. When data is stored, whether received, created or amended, it should always be classified into an appropriate sensitivity level.

Vulnerability & Penetration Assessment

We use penetration test for evaluating the security of a computer system or network by simulating an attack by a malicious hacker. The process involves an active analysis of the system for any weaknesses, technical flaws or vulnerabilities. This analysis is carried out from the position of a potential attacker, and can involve active exploitation of security vulnerabilities. Any security issues that are found will be presented to the system owner together with an assessment of their impact and often with a proposal for mitigation or a technical solution.
We use Vulnerability assessment process of identifying and quantifying vulnerabilities in a system. The system being studied could be a physical facility like a computer system, or a larger system (for example the communications infrastructure or enterprise network for several countries.
We follow following steps in vulnerability assessment:

  • Cataloging assets and capabilities (resources) in a system/li>
  • Assigning quantifiable value and importance to the resources/li>
  • Identifying the vulnerabilities or potential threats to each resource/li>
  • Mitigating or eliminating the most serious vulnerabilities for the most valuable resources

APPLICATION & INFRASTRUCTURE CONTROLS

After performing the risk assessment next logical steps is to identify minimum cost effective application and infrastructure security control, our consultants identify those required controls and guide companies to implement this controls, our approach is control must be cost effective, not more than what is required and not less than what is minimum needed.

Identity management (IDM) is an integrated system that utilizes business processes, policies and technologies that enable organizations to facilitate and control their users’ access to critical applications and resources. It promotes the notion of a holistic security environment which takes into consideration the people, processes, and technological dimensions of information security based on a risk-balanced, business-based approach.

  2. Discovery – Develop an understanding of client’s security program, business functions and staffing roles and responsibilities
  3. Analysis – Perform a detailed analysis of the current security posture and identify the GAPs Assessment – Once GAPs have been identified they are going to be assessed as to their potential severity of loss and probability of occurrence Reporting & Strategic
  4. Remediation Plan – Report documented gaps, prioritized and categorized Sustainability – Outline the efforts and plans to sustain the Mitigation controls put in place and keep up the security level
