Improve your Security Posture with Above Security’s Technical Security Audits

Do you keep you confidential data well protected? Can critical information assets be accessed without proper authorization? Can your websites or networks become unavailable?

Above Security’s technical security audits will provide you with the answers and recommendations you need to improve your security posture and protect your organization’s most valuable assets. Technical security audits detect the vulnerabilities that can be used by unauthorized users and uncover the weaknesses of your organization’s security processes. They are carried by our certified security consultants (ethical hackers) who simulate attacks by using the same techniques as a malicious attacker. The objective of such an audit is to evaluate if your organization’s informational structure can be easily accessed without authorization or not.

Above Security’s consultants will help bring clarity to what needs to be done for your organization to safeguard your critical IT assets, all while following recognized best-practice strategies in the industry.

Certified Security Professionals

With nearly 15 years of experience in IT security and risk management, Above Security employs a team of experts who are just that – certified information security experts (CISA/M, CISSP, PCI QSA/ASV, ISO 27001 LA, GCIA/H, CEH, CFI, CRISC, CGEIT).

Security and IT Risk Management Expertise

By partnering with Above Security, your team will have a specialized security team extension that leverages the knowledge gathered from over 400 technical security assessments per year across all verticals.

Best-Practice Approach

Above Security’s methods and practices are in conformity with the Canadian and American legislations in terms of information systems verification, and are based on best practices recognized by the industry (ISECOM OSSTMM, ISO 27001/27002, SEI, NIST, OWASP, PCI and GAO).

Penetration Testing

Intrusion or penetration tests are designed to simulate a real attack against your infrastructure in a controlled environment. It’s the first step to finding out how secure your IT assets are.

The final test report will help understand your current security posture, and provide you with recommendations on how to improve your defense against technological vulnerabilities that can lead to intrusions, fraud and service interruptions.

Security Architecture and Configuration Reviews

Above Security’s security architecture and configuration reviews provide a detailed analysis of the security architecture of your network, including network topology, installed components, device properties, configurations, information exchange protocols, allowed services, etc.

As a result of the review you will get a detailed report summarizing the current configuration of your servers as well as the architecture of your IT network, and recommendations of countermeasures and enhancements to enhance your security posture.

Secure Code Review

Above Security’s secure code review approach is based on the SANS “Secure Web Applications Technologies” (SWAT) best practice. The code review will also conform to your security practices. In addition to reviewing the code, our security consultants can lead secure coding workshops with your development team to make sure that they are up to date on the latest methods of securing your in-house built applications.
