A Little About GreyCastle Security
GreyCastle Security was founded on the core principle that internal and external threats, misuse, organized cybercrime, system complexity, data breaches, hackers and vulnerabilities are growing at a far faster rate than organizations capable of dealing with them.
We read new headlines every day, and the stories have gotten closer and closer to home. The banks, grocery stores, school districts and fast food chains down the street have all been hit, and these are just the incidents that we know about. Russia, China and Eastern Europe are still turning out increasingly sophisticated cybergangs capable of crawling into networks, databases and bank accounts.
The United States isn’t far behind.
Malware variants and hacking tools are proliferating, and they are becoming increasingly difficult to detect, prevent and eradicate. Open source crimeware kits have given cybercriminals a fast, simple and effective way to create new malware – anyone can be a hacker.
Given the growing complexity of our networks, applications, hardware and software, it’s difficult to keep up with the mounting vulnerabilities that expose our critical assets and bring risk to our businesses. Add cloud computing to the mix, and you have a vast new set of moving parts to secure. Many industry experts see the current state of cyber-insecurity as a countdown to inevitable disaster.
We see it as a wakeup call.
Through all of the noise come a few simple truths:
- “92% of attacks were not highly difficult” – 2011 Verizon Business Data Breach Investigations Report
- “96% of breaches were avoidable by simple or intermediate controls” – 2011 Verizon Business Data Breach Investigations Report
At GreyCastle Security, we’ve proven that through a system of security fundamentals, you can reduce your risk and protect your sensitive assets.
We look forward to partnering with you on your next security initiative.
