The Work

How We Do It

Network Infrastructure & Analysis
Analyzes information collected from a wide range of data sources to identify specific vulnerabilities in the network and infrastructure of a target company‭. ‬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

Deep/Dark/Surface Web Threat Discovery
Assesses the extent of a third party’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.

Historical Actions Investigation
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 third parties‭.

  • 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
