The Service

Cybersecurity threats are a growing concern for organisations because of the increase in targeted attacks and their sophistication. Malicious attackers target inherent vulnerabilities in IT systems, gaining unauthorised access to commit criminal activity within the network. Finding and addressing those vulnerabilities is an essential part of protecting your organisation against such attacks. 

A vulnerability assessment checks for security weaknesses in your internet facing systems using commercial scanning tools.

External vulnerability scans are performed over the internet, and can be carried out remotely.

The Benefits

  • Proactively identify and fix security vulnerabilities before an attack can take place

  • Discover and prioritise all network assets

  • Prevent worms, viruses and trojan horses

  • Manage and reduce business risks

  • Ensure compliance with industry security standards and regulations such as GDPR

  • Implement a risk based approach

  • Stay up to date with the latest threats and vulnerabilities that could negatively impact your organisation

The Challenge

Information Security best practice standards such as PCI DSS require organisations to perform regular technical security assessments of their internet facing IT systems. Carrying out these assessments helps to identify gaps in your network security that could be exploited by malicious attackers.

Vulnerabilities can occur due to upgrades, changes to your systems or simply by new system bugs being discovered. Once these vulnerabilities exist on your information systems, they can be exploited to compromise the data held on it.

Because security vulnerabilities can enable hackers to access IT systems and applications, it is essential for organisations of all sizes to identify and remediate weaknesses before they can be exploited. A comprehensive vulnerability assessment along with practical remedial actions, can help you improve the security of your systems and minimise the chance of future cyber attacks

Our Process

At BH Consulting, we conduct a series of automated vulnerability scans against your internet facing IT systems and environment, to identify flaws and vulnerabilities that could potentially be exploited. Our experienced consultants will then interpret the results, remove false positives and will confirm the severity of any vulnerability found.

This testing includes, but is not limited to testing for weaknesses such as;

  • Network vulnerabilities

  • Software vulnerabilities at the infrastructure and server level

  • Business logic vulnerabilities

We will then prioritise all identified vulnerabilities by analysing the business impact of each of these to your organisation. Taking a risk-based approach, we will rank these in to high, medium and low and present you with a report of the findings, including practical recommendations.
