How we operate
Risk management can only be executed once there is a clear and in-depth understanding of the existing security posture, vulnerabilities and risk tolerance. Once the intricacies of your organisations individual threat landscape have been mapped out, then the most suitable policies and technologies can be implemented to provide multiple layers of defence.
AFDF Security has a range of threat management services to determine your organisations risk profile, whether you need to gauge your security posture against:
A defined security standard
Security “baseline”, or
Our multi-layered approach helps to determine threats, align corporate resources to address security shortcomings, simplify management and increase visibility and plans for evolving threats through a well-designed security strategy.
Benefits of Security & Risk Analysis
By using AFDF Security our security review will indicate to our clients where they are vulnerable, and will provide prioritised risk based recommendations to improve the security of your current protocol. AFDF Security works with clients to ensure they understand the delivered report, and provides additional advice and recommendations during the mitigation phase.
When to get tested? Periodic testing is applicable where there is a requirement for assets to be tested regularly to ensure that a security level or “baseline” is maintained. The frequency and thoroughness of the penetration test may vary, depending on the risk profile or classification of the asset. Approval testing should be conducted prior to the production deployment of a new system or protocol. A penetration test can provide assurance that the components which are about to be introduced into your environment are compliant with the organisation’s security standards. Penetration testing also ensures that the security level of the infrastructure as a whole is not unexpectedly degraded due to the deployment of new application or systems.
