By now, you have probably read about the Target security breach: (Nothing new… this happens all the time).

At Securus Global, we are frequently asked by our clients how hackers compromise companies and in turn, what can be done to minimise the risk of it happening to their own organisation.

By hiring the likes of Securus Global to test your systems in testing, pre-production and/or post production, we’ll be able to highlight any potential exposures you have and issue advice on how to fix them and ways to make you more resistant to such breaches all together.

Better yet, we would rather help you be in a position that your risks are identified beforehand, or even not to be there in the first place.

This is why in early 2014, we’re offering client workshops to explain the anatomy of such attacks and how the hackers are attaining this information from your companies.

These are 1-2 hour informal sessions (no cost), where we talk about what we have seen in the last 10 years, how the attacks are planned and take place but most importantly, what you can do to minimise the chances of this happening to your company.

If you are interested in these free sessions for either yourself or relevant stakeholders, please contact us and we will schedule you in.

One short session is capable of making a big difference. We know this, because we have seen it previously with our clients, ranging from large corporate security and IT teams to development shops, right through to small start-ups.

The number of sessions on offer will be limited as we’re already highly booked out for January with our testing and other consulting services. Furthermore, given the vast popularity of these sessions in the past, we encourage you to reserve your seat, ASAP.

Alongside these types of attacks, we also work with our clients in other technology areas, such as:

  • Strategy and Governance
  • Risk Management
  • Mobile Security
  • IP based control systems; monitoring and alarm systems
  • Social engineering… just to name a few.

So, if you wanting to kick off your 2014 strategy with a bang by opening up your IT, business and other relevant business stakeholders to the world of information security and what can go wrong, be sure to contact us.

In just 1-2 hours, you will learn how just a few small strategic and tactical changes can save you from being the next company to be breached, in the media and potentially losing share price and consumer and client confidence.
