Cyber Security Consulting

No organization is going to be able to stop every threat to the security or privacy of data or to your IT environment. As much as your business may be able to manage the risks, chances are you will need to make improvements to stay on top of the risks and help accelerate performance.

Our Cyber Security Consulting team can assist with assessments, planning, and education to ensure that your company is ready for a breach when it happens, and has the tools in place to get back to a trusted state with as much ease as possible.

Red Team Exercise & Adversarial Simulation Service

Red Team Exercise & Adversarial Simulation Service

Mature organizations require mature assessments. You’ve completed the penetration tests, the vulnerability assessments, and social engineering exercises, but how do you really know how your organization will respond to and recover from a real-world cyber attack by a motivated and experienced threat actor? Whether through your technology, processes, workplace environment, or even your people, Scalar’s Red Team Exercise will thoroughly test avenues of entrance into your organization and your security team detection and response capabilities. Scalar’s Red Team Exercise takes a goal-oriented approach to compromise information assets in scope by any means available.

Scalar’s Adversarial Simulation service provides a transparent assessment of effectiveness of your security program by focusing on two important metrics: Time To Detect and Time To Mitigate a cyber attack. How long does it take for your security team (Blue Team) to notice an attack? Do they have enough knowledge and resources to deal with the incident before the assessment team (Red Team) completes their objective? These are the questions Scalar’s service will answer by simulating a real-world threat actor going after your most critical information assets.

Penetration Testing (Web, Mobile, Wireless, Network, Social Engineering)

Penetration Testing (Web, Mobile, Wireless, Network, Social Engineering)

Not sure what vulnerabilities exist in your networks, systems, applications, or people? Scalar’s team of expert penetration testers will create a testing plan unique to your environment using industry recognized and proven methodologies such as the Penetration Testing Execution Standard (PTES), Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) Testing Guide, OWASP Top 10 Most Critical Web Application Security Risks, and NIST Technical Guide to Information Security Testing & Assessment (SP 800-115). Our team of testers will discover, analyze, and exploit vulnerabilities in your environment and provide a remediation plan to assist in ensuring your organization’s information remains protected.

Cyber Adversary Readiness Assessment

Cyber Adversary Readiness Assessment

Scalar’s Risk Advisory Services has developed a new Cyber Adversary Readiness (“RASCAR”) assessment service. The purpose is to provide insight into an organization’s perceived versus their actual security control coverage which will lead to enhancing their overall security posture and make it more resilient to attacks. This service is aimed at customers who have a more mature security program with several security controls (e.g. end point protection, SIEM, next-generation firewall, etc.), a vulnerability management program, and have conducted penetration tests in the past.

The assessment will map current attack techniques against detection and mitigation controls; resulting in the identification of deficiencies, misconfiguration or lack of controls as well as undiscovered avenues of privilege escalation within a client’s environment. Scalar leverages the MITRE ATT&CK framework, which is industry-recognized as the most comprehensive repository of adversary tactics and techniques.

Security Incident Response Planning

Security Incident Response Planning

Knowing how to respond to a security breach is half the battle. Security incidents are the reduction of security to networks, systems, applications, data, or persons, and are often the result of malicious threat actors. In the event that a security incident occurs, effective and efficient procedures must be in place in order to restore services as quickly as possible and minimize any collateral impact to your organization.

Security Incident Response relies heavily on a stable IT incident management process as a starting point to build from. Scalar’s incident response experts will analyze your current incident intake, initial classification and logging, triage, escalation, and closeout and post incident review procedures to create a plan to ensure future security incidents will be effectively managed.
