Cybersecurity exposure scan
CyberProfiler gives you a unique 'Attacker's Eye View'™ of your business
Understand your organisation's cybersecurity exposure from an attacker’s perspective. A cyber assessment framework powered by first hand cyber-attack response insights.
Supporting insurers and brokers in understanding the risk across their books, whilst providing the information they need to help their customers proactively improve security, mitigate risks, eliminate vulnerabilities, and meet compliance standards.
Make your business difficult to surveil
Our service includes active scanning for vulnerable technologies, configurations, user accounts, registered domains, third party links, budgetary spend, and other sensitive details.
Be the hard target
Poorly configured networks and outdated services make you an easy target.
As with traditional crime, if opportunists find profiling hard, they will move on to softer targets. Our monthly review allows you to identify what your online services reveal to cyber criminals.
Actively defend your organisation
With our monthly assessment, you can detect vulnerabilities as they happen, rather than after an attacker has discovered them.
We summarise our findings and if needed, we can consult your business on remediation.
This non-invasive Cyber Profiling service can provide businesses with insight into the potential exposures that cybercriminals can exploit, and empowerment to take practical steps to remediate risks. We are confident our customers will find this service complements their existing cybersecurity services and contributes to strengthening their cyber resilience.
