Cybersecurity

Protecting systems, networks and apps from attacks.

The threat for organisations, from malicious cyber-gangs and even from rogue states, has increased exponentially in recent years - leading many enterprises to be compromised by attackers.

A successful cybersecurity approach has multiple layers of protection. Yet, the challenge for companies in implementing an effective approach is vast. Criminals are increasingly looking towards sophisticate cyber attacks as a means to generate significant revenues for their enterprises. Whether it be using increasingly popular ransomware or the more traditional breaching of systems to access data by leveraging known exploits, organisations must have robust and adapt cybersecurity systems and models in place. Failure to do so has already resulted in immense reputational damage for a host of companies globally - not to mention the fines they've been given for non-regulatory compliance.

Implementing effective cybersecurity measures is a particularly challenging undertaking. Today, there are more internet connected devices than people. The users of these devices are often limited in their knowledge of and exposure to good cybersecurity practice. Attackers in contrast are becoming more innovative and have greater resources than ever before. Their attacks are usually aimed at accessing, changing, or destroying sensitive information; extorting money from users; or interrupting normal business processes. Though the ways in which cyber criminals achieve this evolves on a daily basis in sophistication. Many organisations aren't even aware of a security breach until long after its occurred - by which time the damage has been done.

In essence, Cybersecurity refers to a set of systems, processes and techniques used to protect the integrity of networks, programs and data from attack, damage or unauthorised access. The primary function of an enterprise's cybersecurity is to protect information and systems from major cyberthreats. The cyberthreat landscape is immense and comprises many different forms. Cybercriminals have the ability to launch automated attacks using a myriad of tactics. And its not just cybercriminals that need to be contended with. Companies are now faced with preventing Cyberterrorism, Cyberespionage and Cyberwarefare. Exagenica assists enterprises to focus on prevention by stopping cyberthreats from impacting endpoints and systems in the first place - reducing the overall cybersecurity risk to a manageable degree. Our skilled cybersecurity professionals enable organisations to assess their risks and the effectiveness of the models and systems they have in place. We provide direction on the development of cybersecurity frameworks, models and policies and support companies in their implementation - alongside integrated threat management platforms.
