Your network needs protection against security threats. I would be hard pressed to name a group that has no need for security – thanks to the internet, the only industry would be one that has no use of computers. However, every organization has different standards for this security. A high-end cyber or IT security system must be built to defend against two major threats:
- Competitive Businesses
- Stringent Industry Regulations
Competitive threat: Illegal as it may be, a hired hack on your network is an easy way for your competitors to compromise your organization’s security, and as such, inflate your competitor’s successes. Even worse, it can be very difficult to track the source of the hack. As your successes grow so does the bulls-eye on your network systems. Want to keep that desirable proprietary information, private company internal decisions and practices secret?
Resolution: Take your cybersecurity seriously by investing in a good system. Conduct a blind network penetration test to discover the security threats in your network. Technology changes quickly, this service is recommended on a yearly basis.
Industry regulations: from a legal standpoint, industry requirements biggest risk to your company’s success. The medical field is the most heavily regulated at this time – with HIPAA’s latest updates to the security rule. HIPAA dictates that medical practices, both public and private, protect their patient information from internet attacks.
Resolution: Meet the US Department of Health and Human Services requirements for security by conducting Blind, Partial or Full Network Penetration Testing. These tests will expose your network’s vulnerabilities and enable you to prevent potential liability lawsuits.
What is Network Penetration Testing?
A network penetration test is a way to test your network’s vulnerability. Penetration testing is the best way to discover how exposed your sensitive company information and/or patients’ valuable medical history really are. A Blind Network Penetration Test is the most realistic – done with no information on your current security measures, it simulates a real attack. A Partial- or Full-Disclosure Network Penetration Test requires is a more informed, and therefore more comprehensive attack on your system – exposing security holes you may never have recognized.
In 8 out of 10 upgrades to a system, third-party providers miss important security updates. What does that leave? Dangerous holes in your network. Don’t be a part of the 80%. Don’t be like Microsoft. Get tested.
