Cybersecurity Consulting & Strategy
We’re firm believers in the managed cybersecurity model, which provides companies with ongoing vigilance and proactive cybersecurity protection for a fiat monthly fee. However, we understand there are times when one-time engagements will best suit the needs of our clients.
Our security strategy and consulting team can leverage years of experience to quickly get up to speed on your cybersecurity challenges and help you address a wide range of problems, from penetration tests to gauge the preparedness of your defenses, to one-off risk assessments and regulatory compliance audits that provide insight and peace of mind.
Whether your business is just beginning to tighten its grip on your cybersecurity protocols or looking for a trusted expert to provide guidance on corrective steps to a chronic security pain paint, the Kaytuso team can deliver the skills and resources you need – anywhere across the country.
Strong Cybersecurity Starts with a Thorough Risk & Vulnerability Assessment
Without a clear understanding of which threats and exposures are most dangerous to your organization, cybersecurity budget and human resources easily get misallocated. That’s why the Kaytuso team is strict about employing risk-based security resources, like the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) Cybersecurity and Risk Management Framework to conduct thorough assessments that lay a foundation for strong and resilient organizational security.
Regulatory Compliance Strategy & Consulting
Many businesses have difficulty navigating the road to dependable regulatory compliance. Even making a single change to your IT infrastructure can require a major adjustment to your security or compliance programs, which might exceed the knowledge or capabilities of your in-house team.
Our project-based compliance services help organizations get their network infrastructure,
applications, and systems ready for the entire range of regulatory measures:
New State-level Requirements like NYS-DFS 500 & Califomia SB-327
FISMA/FEDRAMP certification preparation
Keep Your Network Safe with Strong Identity and Access Management
Numerous data breaches have made it abundantly clear that passwords are a key strategic weakness in the cybersecurity of most organizations. In fact, the problem appears to be getting worse. According to the latest Sermon Data Breach Report, over 80% of hacking-related breaches last year originated with a weak or stolen password.
The Importance of Multi-Factor Authentication
Multi-factor authentication is combining two or more of the following methods of verifying identity and access rights on your network. Although strongly recommended by most security experts, organizations still struggle to adopt MFA uniformly.
The three common methods of authentication
Somethink you knowThe is the primary method of authenticating a user, which is usually a password
Somethink you haveIn most cases, this requirement is fulfilled by a text message or phone call, but security applications-from LastPass, Google, and Microsoft may have special authentication features
Somethink you areIn recent years, the use of biometrics such as facial recognition, fingerprint identification, and iris scanning have become a popular answer to this requirement
Implementing multi-factor authentication is the single best way to improve the security of your network. However, determining which employees are best served by which forms of authentication is a process that requires building a risk profile for each type of user in your organization, then pairing those profiles with the right form of authentication based on both technical and organizational priorities.
Vulnerability and Penetration Testing
Testing your cybersecurity defenses is an excellent way to ensure that no new vulnerabilities have been introduced as your business and systems change or evolve. It can also help you identify areas where you can improve upon your existing defenses.
Kaytuso can help organizations run the full gamut of cybersecurity tests, which include:
Vulnerability assessments use specialized tools and databases to probe your systems in search of potential areas of cybersecurity exposure – like out-of-date or poorly patched software and firmware. A largely technology-driven process, vulnerability assessments are inexpensive enough that they should be performed regularly after any significant changes are made to your network infrastructure or software configurations.
Penetration tests or ‘pen tests simulate a real-world cyberattack on your network using a team of human professionals. More thorough than a vulnerability assessment, penetration tests are designed to yield deep insight into the security of your network and applications. The broad category of penetration test contains several variations:
Due to their complexity and scope, many organizations won’t need to run frequent penetration tests. However, organizations in regulated industries who are housing sensitive data should do regular testing to help ensure their protections are providing optimal security and full compliance.
Kaytuso Has a Solution for Enterprise Mobility Management
Mobile devices are now an integral part of the technology systems at most companies, with the trend toward ‘Bring Your Own Device° (BYOD) experiencing a sharp rise over the last decade. IT leaders across all industries support greater BYOD adoption to cut costs while also increasing worker efficiency.
While BYOD can provide great benefit, it can also exacerbate several of the security issues already present in enterprise mobility. That’s why companies turn to Kaytuso for help in deploying mobile device management (MDM) and enterprise mobility management (EMM) platforms, which help administrators:
- Keep malicious software off mobile devices
- Wipe company data remotely
- Smooth decision making and reduce the learning curve with mobile collaboration tools
