Traditional security measures such as firewalls and anti-virus
do not stop today's sophisticated attacks and threats. The number
and complexity of information security attacks are growing every
day. Security best practices, auditor requirements and compliance
regulations mandate that organizations take additional steps to
have more security defenses, policies and procedures.
Bayside Solutions offers various information security
assessments to assist organizations with identifying compliance
measures. Through a comprehensive methodology developed to provide
the framework for our complex project services related to the
testing and validation of information security controls, project
team members provide guidance to assure that consistent,
repeatable, quality driven results are delivered to our customers
in each engagement.
This methodology is based on key elements of industry recognized
best practices and is coupled with processes and tools that mimic
or simulate steps and procedures actual hackers often utilize to
find, identify, map, research and exploit target assets. Coupling
of best practices and hacker techniques provides for a high level
of confidence in the information gained throughout the Information
security assessment engagement and maintains a direct correlation
with actual threats and extends through assessment and testing of
physical security and physical security controls.
Our methodology and approach focuses on identifying customer
concerns and assessment scope, developing an assessment plan,
determining system testing and research, and delivering a written
report and customer out-brief. Specific testing procedures, what is
tested and how it is tested and/or exploited depends on the scope
of the testing, size of the organization, type of networks and
operating systems being tested, type of services and
vulnerabilities found, and the type of tools employed.
BSI applies disciplined project management with our proprietary
structured methodology enabling us to deliver consistent repeatable
results. BSI will provide project management as an integral part of
this assessment, perform all project management related tasks for
the duration of this project, and assist in the identification of
required resources and assurance that those resources are available
for the time allotted for each task.
