Three Ways to Protect Yourself from Online Threats and Cybercrime

According to Cybersecurity Ventures, cybercrime will cost the world in excess of $6 trillion annually by 2021, which includes “the damage and destruction of data, stolen money, lost productivity, theft of intellectual property, theft of personal and financial data, embezzlement, fraud, post-attack disruption, forensic investigation, restoration and deletion of hacked data and systems, and reputational harms.” In fact, with the US Government recently suggesting that paying hackers may be the best way to defeat ransomware, it’s suggested that cybercrimes are only going to be on the rise in the coming year.

FirePOWER Network Threat Assessment

The FirePOWER Network Threat Assessment utilizes the powerful Cisco ASA with FirePOWER next-generation firewall, which is designed for a new era of threat and advanced malware protection. This assessment helps to identify and validate the proof of value of the Cisco ASA appliance in a customer environment. Delivered on a remote mentored or remote standard basis, this assessment provides customers with a true look at the threats encountered each day and how the ASA with FirePOWER appliance guarded the business.

Penetration & Web App Vulnerability Assessments

A penetration test assessment can be used to address and evaluate the effectiveness of an existing security network. With a specialized skillset, Ingram Micro’s Certified Ethical Hackers work to expose flaws in environments via IP address (Penetration Test) or web address (Web App Vulnerability). The assessment will never cause interruption to your network, and all penetration achieved will be visually documented in a final assessment presentation to customer or end-user stakeholders.

Social Engineering Assessment

Even if your hardware and software is fully secured, there’s still another variable that can expose your security – internal employees. Whether malicious or unintentional, employees can give away information that will give hackers the keys they need to get into your network. The Social Engineering Assessment uses Certified Ethical Hackers to effectively test employees via email spoofing and telephone impersonation.  All information obtained will be used as documentation in a final assessment presentation to the customer or end-user stakeholder.
