The Work

How We Do It

External Cybersecurity Posture Assessment
Analyzes information collected from a wide range of data sources to identify specific vulnerabilities in a target company’s network and infrastructure. Included in our report is a criticality assessment and recommendations for additional investigation or remediation.

  • Indicators of current or past breaches
  • Mapping of the target company’s WAN and MPLS network infrastructure
  • Network ingress and egress points
  • Internal and external security products that may be in use
  • Patches and security protocol maturity
  • Malware infection frequency and duration
  • Efficacy of malware mitigation strategies
  • Geographic or business unit-based differences in security maturity across a company

Brand Reputation Threat Discovery
Assesses the extent of the acquisition target’s exposure by examining key data and individuals that may have been compromised. Senior executives and network administrators are often the targets of bad actors. Using our knowledge of dark web methodologies combined with commercial and proprietary tools, we identify risk factors.

  • Breached credentials
  • Exploitable software
  • Direct network access offers
  • Stolen intellectual property for sale
  • Chatter related to targeting the vendor company
  • Code or data in file sharing sites such as Github, Pastebin, etc.

Non-Traditional Business Risk
Non-traditional business risks can be discoverable digitally. Zero Touch Diligence includes a tailored aggregation system to gather relevant, publicly available, potentially sensitive information about the acquisition target.

  • Criminal or derogatory information on key personnel or investors
  • Indications of hostile control or undue influence from criminal elements or potentially hostile nation states
  • Evidence of suspicious financial activity to include insider trading or embezzlement
  • Allegations of intellectual property theft, unethical practices, or whistleblower complaints
