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.
