Vulnerability Management

Many organisations have invested substantially in a web presence in order to provide a better and interactive service for their customers, suppliers and business partners. The frequency and level of sophistication of attacks against internet facing systems has grown spectacularly over the last couple of years, whilst at the same time, the level of skills and knowledge required to carry out these attacks has decreased. How secure and resistant to attack your web site is should therefore be a significant concern. The risk of security breaches should be adequately mitigated, as the cost of such breaches has been shown to be high.

It is our view that the level of security of any application is determined by the security of the environment it resides in. This implies that security measures should be taken on each layer in the application environment. Deloitte can help assessing the security of these layers:

  • Infrastructure: penetration testing to simulate a hacker attack on your critical network infrastructure
  • Configuration: review of your web server systems’ configuration to determine weaknesses
  • Application: assessment to determine flaws in the web application that may allow unauthorised access or unauthorised transactions;
  • Source Code: review of source code to verify whether security best practices have been applied.

Key elements in our approach that distinguish us from other Vulnerability Assessment suppliers:

  • Our services go beyond technical vulnerability assessments. We translate technical issues found to business risks
  • Our ability to act as advisor and partner to help you resolve vulnerabilities in a vendor-agnostic (but knowledgeable) way
  • Our leadership in the field of information security assures you of our ability to assign qualified, knowledgeable, and industry respected personnel who have performed similar security consulting assignments for clients worldwide
