We provide our services in a flexible way, one which flexes to meet your projects specific needs and requirements. We can blend any of the services below together in order to focus them on your specific business needs and protect your commercial prosperity from cybersecurity threats.
Network Penetration Testing
Network penetration testing is typically a manual and deep-dive penetration test handled by an experienced and certified cybersecurity practitioner. We conduct network penetration tests in order to identify exploitable vulnerabilities in your internal or external networks, before cybercriminals are able to discover and exploit those vulnerabilities. Our testing often reveals major vulnerabilities which would allow black hat hackers to compromise networks in such a way that allows for the exfiltration of sensitive data for malicious or criminal purposes. Our team has extensive network penetration test experience and is able to conduct comprehensive penetration tests on your networks in order to gauge their robustness and effectiveness.
Web Application Penetration Testing
Web application penetration testing is the process of using penetration testing techniques on a web application to detect its security vulnerabilities. It is similar to a network penetration test in that it aims to break into the web application and expose its most vulnerable points. In an age when half the planet relies on web applications to conduct their banking, buy services and products online and submit their data to online services, you absolutely need to be sure that your web application is secure and not leaking any of your customers personal information or data. Many applications were not built with security in mind and it is through rigorous application penetration testing that their weaknesses are identified and remediated.
The internet-of-things (IoT) has long been the source of a million and one security vulnerabilities, our team has found vulnerabilities in household brand IoT devices like Google Nestcam and the Ring doorbell camera. Default passwords, poorly configured security settings and vulnerabilities in IoT operating systems and software can mean that your home or office webcams may be open and accessible to the internet. Even when you have locked down your IoT devices security wise, it does not at all mean that they are secure. Experience has taught us that you simply cannot trust IoT to be secure without thorough and rigorous security testing to reveal any serious security vulnerabilities and enable us to properly remediate them.
Never before have we relied on mobile apps to conduct our daily personal and professional lives as we have today, there are more than 2 billion smartphones in use globally and each of them contains a large number of mobile applications. Unfortunately for their users, only a very few of those mobile applications have been properly tested using rigorous security testing and to make matters worse, mobile app hacking is on the rise and rapidly becoming one of the preferred vehicles of exploitation that cybercriminals use to attack their targets. We can make sure that your app is free of security vulnerabilities and properly securing your users data so that you do not end up like one of many mobile app vendors who suffered from a data breach.
Social Engineering Services & Training
Social engineering is defined as the use of deception to manipulate individuals and organizations into divulging confidential or personal information that may be used against them in a malicious or criminal manner. It is an umbrella term used to describe a range of malicious activities accomplished through human interactions which use psychological manipulation to trick users into making security mistakes. The vast majority of data breaches and cyber attacks target the individual using social engineering, rather than leverage zero-day vulnerabilities and actual hacking and unless you are careful, your people can be the weakest link in your security.
We at CrackOps are social engineering adepts, we can help your team to recognize the signs of a social engineering attack so that they can mitigate against them when they occur. By far the most common kind of social engineering attacks are phishing attacks, but these tend not to be tailored towards individual targets and are usually easy to spot with a trained eye. Far more insidious are ‘spear phishing attacks’ which are specifically targeted and tailored to individuals, these kind of attacks require extensive OSINT gathering before they are executed in order to establish your targets personal and professional background to entice them to open an email.
Our social engineering and testing programs cover:
Open Source Intelligence (OSINT)
Open source intelligence is data gathered from publicly available sources that is used in an intelligence context in support of cybersecurity operations.
Before we begin any action against a target (be it an individual, network or organization) we first gather OSINT on our target and this includes everything we can see without breaking any laws. We can skillfully mine actionable data from our targets social networks, web presence, public networks, public records, personal and professional connections, archived web pages and in a thousand other places that people usually forget about. If OSINT data exists, we will find it.
