A vulnerability assessment (scan) should be performed on a more frequent schedule especially when new hardware or software are introduced into your environment. Initial assessments should give you a baseline from which to build upon. Any changes to your environment should trigger a vulnerability assessment.
A penetration test (pen) simulates real-world attacks by threat actors using the latest tools and techniques. Pen testing is useful for identifying unknown security weaknesses that can allow compromises to your data. Harris-Diette Inc and Cyber Security Associates, Inc specializes in pen testing with 35 years experience in information systems security management. Harris-Diette, Inc recommends yearly penetration testing.
Social Engineering Awareness
Social engineering and employee awareness campaigns help protect your systems from accidental exposure. As companies invest more in information security, hackers are changing their methods of attack. Building a strong social engineering awareness program is increasingly important in today's infrastructure. You've heard the terminology; phishing, spear phishing, vishing, whaling, dumpster diving... It's the human element.
Compliance with regulations and industry standards can be an enormous undertaking. Regulations are tightening and liabilities are growing. These regulations include HIPAA, SOX, FISMA, PCI-DSS among other acts and regulations. It may be difficult for a company to determine which laws apply.
