Amidst increase in market growth and sophistication of cyber threats, ASI’s professional white hackers effectively engage on your cyber presence to assess the resources and harden your cyber infrastructure where ever needed. With a rapid response team and a global forum of ethical hackers to engage in moment’s notice, we assure an instant remediation against vulnerabilities in compliance to the international standards.
In 2012 the most common cybersecurity threat types were: 1) Social Engineered Trojans, 2) Unpatched Software (such as Java, Adobe Reader, Flash), 3) Phishing, 4) Network traveling worms, and 5) Advanced Persistent Threats. In 2018 the common cyber threat types have proliferated to over twenty including: 1) Advanced Persistent Threats, 2) Phishing, 3) Trojans, 4) Botnets, 5) Ransomware, 6) Distributed Denial of Service (DDOS), 7) Wiper Attacks, 8) Intellectual Property Theft, 9) Theft of Money, 10) Data Manipulation, 11) Data Destruction, 12) Spyware / Malware, 13) Man in the Middle (MITM), 14) Drive-By Downloads, 15) Malvertising, 16) Rogue Software, 17) Unpatched Software, 18) Keyloggers, 19) Rootkits, 20) Bootkits, and others. ASI cybersecurity practice has evolved in step with the dynamics of the industry and is presently based on a model of continuous change and adaptation ensuring that we remain abreast with the most current tactics of cybercriminals.
NIST’s Cybersecurity Framework is the most prevalent among the guides applied to direct a cybersecurity practice. There are other similar regulatory and institutional frameworks including PCI DSS, ISO 27001/2, and TY CYBER. Some countries have devised their own guides, and vendors such as IBM and Cisco have established proprietary flavors intended to differentiate themselves. ASI have had a longstanding relationship with NIST and participates in events at the Computer Security Resource Center (NIST CSRC). ASI has therefore embraced the NIST Cybersecurity Framework as one of the many instruments applied in its cyber practice.
Cybercriminals have proven to be very innovative and enterprising, uncovering more and more technology vulnerabilities and creatively constructing newer cyberthreat types. This imposes greater pressure on businesses and vendors to develop and implement newer cyber defense solutions. This is a vicious cycle where each group (cyber defenders and cybercriminals) work continuously to outdo each other. ASI tracks this battle closely and continuously monitors cyberattacks successes and failures, the end result is a cybersecurity knowledgebase of solutions classified according to the threats they neutralize. This knowledgebase of cyber defense solutions enables ASI to quickly identify remedies and processes that can be effective at neutralizing present threats.
ASI has discovered that it is not practical for a single cybersecurity integrator or cybersecurity vendor to have all the remedies to defend against all possible cyberthreats. Cyberthreats and cyberattacks are very diverse, even within the same threat type the defending or neutralizing solutions can vary. To effectively deal with the diversity and mutation of threat types, ASI has formal working relationships with expert cyber practitioners (sometimes ethical hackers) and specialty cyber vendors. When present with newer and more challenging cybersecurity requirements, ASI interrogates its knowledgebase and if the situation have already been experienced, then the remediation may be academic. If the circumstances of an attack or the characteristics of a threat variation impose unanticipated complexities, ASI may elicit the participation of known cyber experts, within our professional network, that have neutralized similar threats or that possess the technical savvy which can result in rapid remediation.
