CSI Mitigates Network Security Risks with Internal Penetration Testing
PADUCAH, Ky. --(Business Wire)--
Services, Inc. (CSI (News - Alert)) (OTCQX: CSVI), a provider of end-to-end
technology solutions that empower financial institutions and businesses
to remain competitive, compliant and profitable, has added Internal
Penetration Testing to its existing regulatory compliance offerings for
its Risk and Information Security Consulting (RISC) Services group.
With CSI's Internal
Penetration Testing, RISC Services consultants examine an
organization's internal systems, assuming the mindset of a hacker who
has infiltrated the network, to uncover potential vulnerabilities. Once
system weaknesses have been identified, CSI's RISC Services consultants
attempt to exploit these vulnerabilities through hands-on, manual
testing and research of each area of concern-a method that better
identifies key issues that a basic scan would likely not detect.
"With instances of cyberattacks continuing to rise, we saw a distinct
need for more extensive guidance and support in order to assist our
customers in better protecting the livelihood of their business," said
Paul Koziarz, president and general manager of CSI Regulatory
Compliance. "The addition of our Internal Penetration Testing service
allows us to proactively provide our customers with an in-depth view of
potential security risks within their system and assist them in
correcting problems before they fall victim to an attack."
Following the penetration
testing, CSI's RISC Services consultants provide a detailed list of
observations and recommendations to rectify the identified weaknesses
and lower risk levels. Additionally, organizations are given thorough
documentation to simplify further risk assessment, control decisions,
service provider arrangements, security breaches or violations, and
As an added feature to the Internal
Penetration Testing service, CSI offers a Wireless Network Audit,
which uncovers vulnerabilities associated with the encryption and
authentication methods in use on the organization's wireless network.
This additional service also explores potential weaknesses in a
company's employee base by using limited social engineering attempts to
entice users to connect to unauthorized access points.
"Given the industry's current war on fraud and cybersecurity, regulatory
compliance poses a significant challenge for today's businesses,"
Koziarz said. "In order to assist our customers in maintaining effective
security standards, we remain dedicated to providing superior products
and services to not only simplify day-to-day operations, but also
eliminate growing business concerns on the horizon."
CSI's RISC Services also offers Information Security Reviews, External
Penetration Testing, Social Engineering Testing, Red Flags Reviews, IT
Audits, BSA/AML Audits, bank website
compliance audits and internal vulnerability assessments. Each of
CSI's RISC Services solutions provides users with a well-balanced mix of
analysis, technology, reporting and industry expertise to comply with
new industry regulations and mitigate potential network security risks.
