Testing can be conducted either externally (as an outsider threat) and/or internally (as an insider threat) to help you in determining exactly how effective your existing system defence mechanisms are and evaluating whether or not your organisation is following security best practice.
Stay protected from ever-evolving cyber threats with timely identification, classification and continuous scanning of your digital assets for vulnerabilities, plus reporting and recommendations tailored for your specific teams. A Vulnerability Assessment is based on scanning your systems to uncover details of devices running on the network. These details are related to operating systems, software and services running. This is then compared to a database of known vulnerabilities. After comparing detections to a live database, any vulnerabilities relating to out of date software and misconfigurations which could be exploited to gain access to an internal network or extract business critical data will be flagged and reported on, allowing you to apply remediations to remove the vulnerability.
Penetrating testing is your protection against the latest threats, tools, and techniques of criminal hackers. A penetration test explores the vulnerabilities and weaknesses in your business’s defences and highlights what action your business needs to take, to protect against the identified threats. A penetration test is an assessment designed to find weaknesses and vulnerabilities in your company’s defences. A pen test exploits authentication issues, cross-site scripting problems, source code flaws, logic flaws, and insecure network configurations. Penetration testing and vulnerability assessments use both automated and manual toolsets to provide greater coverage. Penetration testing is an essential component for ISO 27001 requirements and our final deliverables and post engagement support with remediation plan adds to the evidence of meeting standard requirements. Manual testing provides a more thorough level of assurance as this includes an element of human hacking or intuition factor that a real person would use that an automated scanner may miss.
As provided with our AEGIS EW product @ https://www.titanium-defence.com/aegis-ew/ : External penetration testing removes the uncertainty and risks of an external attack on your computer systems. It simulates an outsider attack and again identifies the weaknesses in your systems. An external penetration test will help your company Identify and address weak spots, where sensitive information can be exposed. The resulting report will highlight systems that an outside attacker could take control of.
AEGIS is a cyber-attack management solution combined with automated pentesting that continuously monitors the security control effectiveness of an organisation, providing visibility of gaps and vulnerabilities that can be remediated to ensure cybersecurity performance standards are maintained.
CREST Certified: we utilise the best of the best CREST certified personnel. This is the highest quality testing available to strict international standards. Penetration testing is an attack simulation conducted in accordance with guidelines, closely demonstrating real-world attacks that organisations face daily. More importantly, identifying security weaknesses that can lead to the compromise of confidentiality, integrity or loss of availability of business data.Internal penetration testing is a process that will allow you to fully understand the potential threats from within. The test is designed to help you reduce the risks that are posed by individuals who have legitimate access to your computer systems and your network.We employ CREST accredited personnel otherwise known as Offensive Security Certified Professionals (OSCP) or ethical hackers. Under a defined scope set out with your company, our hackers systematically infiltrate your systems to find weaknesses in your defence plan and expose vulnerabilities.
Web applications are essential for any business and its day-to-day activities. These applications include programs and websites and as such, they may hold or process sensitive data including logins, user data and financial information.Web application tests focus on vulnerabilities such as coding errors or software responding to certain requests in unintended ways. Due to the increasing complexity of web applications, cybercriminals are finding more vulnerabilities that can be exploited. It is for this reason that web application testing and security is essential for all businesses.
Mobile applications are often the easiest way for customers to interact with your business, through apps that connect users or offer services, the concepts are endless. Therefore security testing against applications that house sensitive data or parse high amounts of traffic is mission-critical.
ISO 27001 testing (ISO/IEC 27001:2013), formerly ISO/IEC 27001:2005, helps businesses stay in line with international best practices while also optimising costs. The standard is both vendor and technology-neutral and is applicable to companies of all sizes, nature, and type.We assist you to identify and address vulnerabilities to comply with ISO 27001 with our industry leading threat and vulnerability scanning and penetration testing services. Pen testing and ISO 27001 vulnerability analysis is an important part of ISO/IEC 27001 Information Security Management System (ISMS) certification. Annex A.12.6 of ISO 27001 standard refers to A.12.6.1 ‘management of technical vulnerabilities’ and A.12.6.2 ‘restrictions on software installations’. Objective A.12.6.1 states that ‘information about technical vulnerabilities of information systems being used shall be obtained in a timely fashion, the organisation’s exposure to such vulnerabilities evaluated and appropriate measures taken to address the associated risk’.
Firewalls are network security devices (software WAF or hardware appliance) that are essentially a barrier that sits between your devices and the internet, or other external sources of data. Firewalls form an essential part of any company’s cybersecurity architecture, overseeing the safety of outgoing and incoming network traffic.
Our Virtual Chief Information Security Officer (VCISO) enables your business to call upon a highly qualified and experienced security professional as and when required. By acting as an extension of your business our Virtual CISO will assess potential cyber-risks and develop the policies, procedures and controls needed to help elevate your security to compliance standards. You can achieve cyber outcomes by leveraging our VCISO as a Service offering. Engage a key senior-level executive capable of interpreting and translating complex technology and cyber issues into the language of business. Our VCISOs are both digital and business natives, who are focused on effectively and efficiently managing cyber risk. VCISO guidance is invaluable for planning security audits, assessments and reviews, procuring new security products and services, developing a threat management strategy, recruiting and training IT and security personnel, achieving compliance with the latest security standards and responding to and remediating security incidents. The impacts of a cyber security incident (such as a security breach, data breach, DDoS, Ransomware, Phishing attack etc) can be long lasting and potentially damaging to an organisation’s financial, reputational, and/or operational stability. Our VCISO can help you prepare for a cyber security incident means that you can invoke an incident response plan to help protect your data, detect a breach and quickly mitigate the impact.
Application tests focus on vulnerabilities such as coding errors or (application programming interface) API’s responding to certain requests in unintended ways.
Social engineering is a technique used by cybercriminals where psychological manipulation is used to get members of your workforce to click on links and attachments, or divulge sensitive information. In short, social engineering sees your employees coerced into revealing confidential information or coerced into performing adverse actions. Social Engineering tests the humans using phishing, pharming and BEC (business email compromise) to gain access to target systems.
Thick Client applications are defined by a client-server architecture and are often locally deployed on internal networks. Generally written in C++, .NET, C and Java they can follow similar procedures as web application testing. For an easy to understand the approach, some examples of thick applications would be Skype & Outlook. Front end testing can include dynamic fuzzing of input functions to procedurally generate application crashes or overflows, whereas back end testing would typically involve manipulating requests made to the controlling server to expose flaws.
API’s are now becoming common practice within application development and can contain vulnerabilities similar to web applications, however often without the access of a user interface. These issues can still exist ‘under the bonnet’ and should be treated with the same level of integrity as other aspects of your digital footprint. Application Programming interfaces are intermediary software’s that allow multiple applications to communicate with each other. Web-based API’s (HTTP/REST) although generally have stronger security, discipline and governance can still be vulnerable to dynamic functions developed in-house. We offer one primary API test – White-box, where documentation and sample requests are presented to the tester due to the bespoke manner of each individual engagement.
PCI penetration testing is performed to identify security vulnerabilities in line with PCI DSS requirements. It is targeted at the internal systems that store, process or transmit card data, public-facing devices and systems and databases. PCI network segmentation testing validates the segmentation controls to prevent unauthorised access to CDE. External PCI pen tests are performed on the internet facing systems. This is not a vulnerability scan that involves running vulnerability scanners and analysing issues for false positive removals. Comparatively, penetration tests are resource intensive, in-depth and provide an effective input to your risk management process.
White Box testing is carried out from a position of full knowledge of the target, in many cases this includes a source code and architectural review. This approach is typically suited to scenarios where you wish to assess every aspect of compromise, whether originating from an internal, external, or privileged attacker.
Grey Box testing focuses on areas we think may be of more risk to you, and value to a hacker, because it is carried out from a position of limited knowledge of the target. This approach is typically suited to scenarios where you wish to assess a combination of your defensive controls, their effectiveness, and the overall security weaknesses of the target, whether originating from an internal or external attacker.
Black Box testing enacts an anonymous penetration test because it is carried out from a position of almost no knowledge of the target. However, unlike a real-life hacking campaign this exercise is limited to agreed time and budget constraints which therefore means it will be less comprehensive. This approach is typically suited to scenarios where you wish to assess your defensive controls and their effectiveness from an external attacker.

CIS: Helping you prioritise information security controls against real threats through CIS top 20 The CIS Controls (formerly known as Critical Security Controls) are a recommended set of cyber defence actions that provide specific and actionable ways to stop today’s most pervasive and dangerous attacks. CIS is a non-profit organisation developing cyber defence hygiene and best practices to secure and resilient cybersphere. The CIS critical security controls do not ensure immunity to cyberattacks, but they considerably affect the security controls through standard measures and cyber protection layers. CIS controls are not the necessary standard to follow, nor does it compete with anyone; it is an effort to create a safe cyber realm against the security weaknesses of every business. CIS controls stand for Center for Internet Security Controls (previously known as the SANS Top 20 Critical Security Controls) is the best practices guidelines to combat cybercriminals malicious actions and attack vectors wandering inside the Internet sphere.

The EU General Data Protection Regulation has fundamentally transformed how businesses handle personal data. Any company that does not follow these new norms faces severe fines, potentially up to €20 million or 4% of annual global revenue, depending on the severity and circumstances of the violation. In other words, GDPR compliance is not optional. The GDPR sets out seven key principles: Lawfulness, fairness and transparency, Purpose limitation, Data minimisation, Accuracy, Storage limitation, Integrity and confidentiality (security) and Accountability.The ISO 27001 standard is an excellent starting for point for companies that need to achieve the EU’s GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) compliance. GDPR states that companies must adopt appropriate procedures, policies, and processes to protect the personal data that they hold. The framework of ISO 27001 will get a company half-way to complying with GDPR. ISO 27001 does this through the company achieving the necessary operational and technical requirements to reduce the risk of security breaches. Our consultants have years of experience with all the complex requirements surrounding areas such as EU GDPR, PCI Data Security Standard, ISO 27001:2013. We help organisations capitalise on digital opportunities whilst meeting compliance standards and mitigating potential risks.

Enterprise risk frameworks that encompass third party information security risk, and overall best practice in line with internal policy and international standards such as ISO31000 and ISO27005, are important in complying with the regulatory requirements and overall management of third party information security risk. Associated policies that are placed underneath the organisation information security policies, govern how employees are expected to operate whilst using IT assets and services. They should ensure proportional protection of the organisation, whilst balancing the need for employees to be able to operate effectively during their day to day business function. Policies can also go on to reference more detailed processes and procedures with regard to how specific operations are expected to be delivered.
Remediation planning involves defining an approach to address issues and defective controls to enable your organisation to improve its security posture.
Compliance: Achieve, maintain and prove your compliance over time with rigorous, embedded compliance processes.

The NIST Privacy Framework can be used to either develop or improve upon a privacy programme. Given there are 100 sub-categories which define the framework, we have automated the process of completing an initial assessment so you can get on with making improvements. Your conformance with the programme and priority areas can then be re-assessed as often as you like without the need to re-produce time intensive reports. Using the Framework, we will guide you in your cybersecurity activities, considering cybersecurity risk as part of your management processes. The Framework is a set of cybersecurity activities, outcomes and references, which are defined at a high level below:
Develop an organisational understanding to manage cybersecurity risk to systems, people, assets, data, and capabilities. The activities in the Identify Function are foundational for effective use of the Framework. Understanding the business context, the resources that support critical functions, and the related cybersecurity risks enable an organisation to focus and prioritise its efforts, consistent with its risk management strategy and business needs.
Develop and implement appropriate safeguards to ensure the delivery of critical services. The Protect Function supports the ability to limit or contain the impact of a potential cybersecurity event.
Develop and implement appropriate activities to identify the occurrence of a cybersecurity event. The Detect Function enables timely discovery of cybersecurity events.
Develop and implement appropriate activities to take action regarding a detected cybersecurity incident. The Respond Function supports the ability to contain the impact of a potential cybersecurity incident.
Recover – Develop and implement appropriate activities to maintain plans for resilience and to restore any capabilities or services that were impaired due to a cybersecurity incident.
We can assist you in assessing your Privacy Risk in accordance with best practice guidelines.Our Privacy Advisory Programme is aligned with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Privacy Framework, which organisations can use to:Take privacy into account as they design and deploy systems, products, and services that affect individuals;Communicate about their privacy practices; and Encourage cross-organisational workforce collaboration – for example, among executives, legal, and information technology (IT) – through the development of Profiles, selection of Tiers, and achievement of outcomes. Our Cybersecurity Advisory Programme is aligned with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework, which organisations can use to: Describe their current cybersecurity posture; Describe their target Profile for cybersecurity.
ISO is an information security standard released by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), as well as the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC). ISO standards have been created for organisations to help them manage their information security processes, financial information, employee details, and intellectual property, as well as other security assets.The ISO family of standards describe security techniques and codes of practice for information security controls and information technology. ISO standards are not mandatory, so companies do not need to adopt them. However, many organisations choose to adopt them to reassure customers and to demonstrate that they are using best practices; Identify and prioritise opportunities for improvement within the context of a continuous and repeatable process; Assess progress toward the target Profile; and Communicate among internal and external stakeholders about cybersecurity risk.
ISO 27001 focuses on broader information security, while PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) focuses on the security surrounding online payments. PCI DSS is governed by a consortium of credit card companies and they ensure that online transactions are protected.There are more than a dozen standards within the 27000 family and these include: 27003 – implementation guidance; 27004 – ISMS standards that suggest metrics to improve the effectiveness of an ISMS; 27005 – an ISMS risk management standard; 27006 – a certification and registration guide of processes for accredited ISMS registration and certification bodies; 27007 – information security management system auditing guideline. Strengthen your information security posture by achieving ISO 27001 compliance and certification.
Threat and impact analysis serves as an important part of the risk assessment process, as well as to ensuring effective business continuity and disaster recovery. Without a proper understanding of the impact of data loss and the possible nature of the threats to the data, it is difficult to understand the risks involved and to properly determine how it can be most effectively managed.
