IT Network Security Lifecycle

Security Audits/Assessment

One of the top prevention tactics in NCC's Network Security program are frequent security audits and assessment of vulnerabilities in an IT network.

An increasing number of security breaches in the last few years, from high profile retailers to small online businesses with the Heartbleed Bug have made IT security more important now than ever. NCC Data’s comprehensive assessment can address potential vulnerabilities within third party applications, communication functions, hardware and operating systems, as well as the overall network. In addition, a security audit with NCC Data finds vulnerabilities within:

  • Trusted sources and internal users
  • Untrusted sources
  • User authentication/permission vulnerability
  • Viruses introduced via external means

First Level Defense

Worldwide Network Security requirements recommend firewalls and encryption at a minimum for basic security protection. With NCC Data, businesses benefit from added layers of defense including:

  • Centralized anti-virus protection
  • Advanced firewalls
  • Intrusion detection
  • Policy management
  • Vulnerability scanning

IT Security Threats

Increasingly, small businesses are the target of cyber-attacks, as many are doing more and more business online and feature minimal security. As recent as five years ago, small businesses were protected against being unknown entities, according to Symantec, cyberattacks on small businesses rose 300 percent in 2012 from the previous year.

Small businesses can also lead to larger networks, especially if a client is a Fortune 500 company. IT security threats no longer discriminate, company’s small, medium and enterprise require active prevention against security threats, yet they also require a perception change. Critical to protection against security threats start with the organization and its people.

NCC Data often leads security training sessions for clients which reveal password and download weaknesses. Changing the perception of an organization isn’t easy; it requires an open discussion, knowledge of the threats, and policy for enforcement.
