 What is Penetration Testing?

Also known as pen testing, penetration testing is when a company’s network, attached devices, network applications, and/or website is investigated for any potential vulnerabilities.
In very basic terms, a penetration test is a process of creating a dummy cyber-attack against a company. Simulating the processes, a hacker would take when launching an attack highlights and identifies any vulnerabilities within a company’s network. Therefore, these vulnerabilities can be dealt with so that they are protected if a real attack were to happen in the future.

What is PCI Compliance?

Any company that accepts, processes, or stores credit card information needs to comply with requirements set by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council.
Merchants require official certification to submit payment information to banks and other financial transaction organisations. These certifications are a global standard, meaning they are accepted all over the world. Failure to comply with the Payment Card Industry security standards may result in heavy fines, restrictions, or permanent expulsion from card acceptance programs.

Why Are Penetration Testing & PCI Compliance Important?

Working with Mimecast, we can perform regular penetration tests and ensure your business is complying with the regulations set out by the PCI. This means your company and network will be better protected against cyber-attacks and fines or expulsion from card acceptance programs.

Did You Know?

92% of malware was delivered via malicious email attachments (Verizon DBIR 2018). The remainder was largely delivered via the web.
91% of malware uses the web and DNS, to function once it lands (Cisco Annual Cybersecurity Report for 2018), for communications with that attacker’s command and control systems and to exfiltrate data.

68% of organizations don’t monitor their DNS activity, thus leaving them blind to this communications path. (RSA Conference 2018 Session).

What Is Security Awareness Training?

It may come as a surprise, but human error poses one of the biggest risks to your organization. In fact, over 90% of all security breaches are because of human error.
Companies spend millions on tech fixes for security, but – too often – simple employee mistakes bypass all these safeguards. Not having effective security training is like buying a very expensive security system for your car or house, then leaving your key in the lock.
Mimecast’s Security Awareness Training ensures your users are constantly conscious of any threats, with the knowledge and know-how of dealing with any unusual activity or emails.

How Does Security Awareness Training Work?

The platform combines effective, modern training techniques with predictive analytics to reduce employee security mistakes and a companies’ vulnerability to human error.
Each module captures attention, engages employees through humour, delivers lessons simply, quickly, and with multiple touchpoints throughout the year in a way that significantly changes behaviour.
Mimecast can identify the individual employees most at risk for making security mistakes, meaning you can focus your budget on the employees that need attention the most with bespoke training, direct counseling, and/or more restrictive system permissions.
