We will find the best approach in line with your security challenges. A smarter approach for better protection and results. 

Improving audit methods – an arsenal to protect you

Our experts use every weapon in their arsenal to assess your level of security from an organisational, logical and physical point of view. 

  • Organisational and functional audit : To assess the level of general security and verify compliance with good practices and internal or regulatory requirements (ISO 2700x, PCI-DSS, GDPR, etc.). 
  • Architecture audit : To verify the level of technical security of an IS or an infrastructure, and the compliance of implementations with regard to standards or regulations. 
  • Setup audit : To verify the level of security or compliance of components with respect to internal or regulatory standards. 
  • Source code review : To identify, from the source code, all the security risks and development practices that can be improved. 
  • Intrusion test : To test a system’s or application’s security level and assess the risk associated with the presence of a vulnerability by carrying out an exhaustive analysis. 
  • Social engineering  : To measure your employees’ level of awareness about attacks which target human error through phishing, phoning or physical campaigns.

Attack to protect better

Exercises in real conditions allow us to test your defence mechanisms to better secure your IS. 

  • Red Team : A realistic intrusion campaign, inspired by scenarios already carried out by criminal groups, that targets the most critical elements of your work. A program that combines internet, social engineering and physical attacks. 
  • Purple Team : A series of attacks operated by the Red Team, with the Blue Team’s investigative monitoring, detection and reaction capacities, up to actually blocking the attacks. This combination improves your surveillance plan and all of your defence processes.
