Fortify your Cybersecurity – Test your defenses with Penetration Testing

Fortify Cybersecurity

This blog emphasizes the importance of testing cybersecurity measures. Companies can be confident that their data will be safe if they are frequently examined with VAPT. There is a false sense of security that the safeguards will protect them from a breach.

Consider this scenario

It was 2 pm on a lazy Thursday afternoon. Mr. Smith, the CEO of a reputed healthcare firm in his city, was preparing for a board meeting when he got the dreaded call about a data breach on their website. It had been a smooth couple of months, and this was the last thing he needed before a pitch to increase funding for new projects. It was a typical scenario that he prepared for – used MFA such as Password, Token, OTP, and Biometrics, etc. They even hired a certified CSO last year to create systems that would protect the company’s data. Why didn’t it work?

This scenario is a serious violation of compliance. It breaks customers’ trust. There is unpredictable downtime of operations & the brand image is shattered! It’s a CEO’s worst nightmare. All the additional effort in building the company’s image and increasing sales, despite the rising competition, building partnerships brings everything to a standstill.

As cybersecurity experts, we understand how to fortify your cybersecurity measures against such attacks. After implementing the best security measures in your industry, Certified VAPT experts at databrackets can test your defenses using an in-depth vulnerability assessment using industry-recognized standards such as NIST, OSSTM, PTES, ISO27001, GDPR, etc. and a hybrid approach to penetration testing.

The Offense is the Best Defense

Through Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Testing services, you can authorize an attempt of hacking via a web application into the network and find loopholes in the areas that need to be secure. At databrackets, we work with all 3 types of testing:

 

Areas of Penetration Testing:

Join the revolution against hacking


The real assurance that your data is secure is only achieved when it’s tested in an attacker mindset to defend your application/infrastructure against attackers.

Join the revolution against hacking and secure your web applications, mobile app, and infrastructure before known vulnerabilities are exploited. Click here to learn more about the services by cybersecurity experts at databrackets & gift yourself peace of mind.

DevOps Security Best Practices

The DevOps approach gives security practitioners and testers an opportunity to integrate security in the very early stages of software development and deployment process. While it’s clear that security should be ingrained throughout the entire DevOps lifecycle, learn some of the best practices in the evolving practice for securing your DevOps shop.

HIPAA Breach – Indiana Medical Records Service Pays $100,000 to Settle

May 23, 2019 Medical Informatics Engineering, Inc. (MIE) has paid $100,000 to the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and has agreed take corrective action to settle potential violations of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Privacy and Security Rules. MIE is an Indiana company that provides software and electronic medical record services to healthcare providers.

On July 23, 2015, MIE filed a HIPAA breach report with OCR following discovery that hackers used a compromised user ID and password to access the electronic protected health information (ePHI) of approximately 3.5 million people. OCR’s investigation revealed that MIE did not conduct a comprehensive risk analysis prior to the breach. The HIPAA Rules require entities to perform an accurate and thorough assessment of the potential risks and vulnerabilities to the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of an entity’s electronic protected health information.

“Entities entrusted with medical records must be on guard against hackers,” said OCR Director Roger Severino. “The failure to identify potential risks and vulnerabilities to ePHI opens the door to breaches and violates HIPAA.”

In addition to the $100,000 settlement, MIE will undertake a corrective action plan to comply with the HIPAA Rules that includes a complete, enterprise-wide risk analysis.
