Security Testing and Training

Embed cyber resilience throughout your organisation

Cybercrime isn’t a singular event. As one avenue is blocked, cybercriminals will quickly find new means of entry. Our security testing and training services target the shifting nature of cyberattacks, supporting organisations to become vigilant as they embed best-practice security procedures and awareness into daily operations.

Phishing, social engineering, ransomware and malware are all increasingly common methods of attack. Australia is a heavily targeted country for cybercrime, for instance 20% of global attempts to compromise business email systems are targeted at Australian organisations1. While these types of cybercrime are typically understood by IT teams, they are foreign to many others in your organisation.

Create a culture of security awareness in your organisation. 

Security Awareness Training

Empower your people to be your first line of defence against cyber intrusions. Educate your workforce to understand the value of the information they interact with on a daily basis and ensure they make the right decision when it comes to protecting sensitive corporate information and assets.

About the program

Cybercriminals are after your data and they’re highly active. They are creative and consistently seeking new avenues to trick you, your staff and your partners into divulging confidential information. They will deploy a variety of tactics to extract usernames and passwords and infiltrate your critical systems.

This customisable program has been designed to create a sustainable culture of cybersecurity awareness. Through a variety of exercises and examples, employees learn the value of the information they are custodians of, as they gain the tools and practical knowledge needed to understand and identify common security threats. Each program is purpose-built based on a number of delivery options and offerings, and cover a broad range of security topics.

Security Tests and Assessments

Improve your security posture with cyberthreat intelligence solutions designed to guard against the myriad of cybersecurity risks inherent in your business operations.

Organisations require full awareness of their threat profile and points of vulnerability to improve defences. Achieving this requires a current, intimate knowledge of assets, while regularly undertaking assessments of the network perimeter, applications, data, and internal systems.

Data#3 provide industry-leading, trusted security assessments and testing, to optimise security efforts and prepare your business to defend against the most advanced cyber adversaries. All assessments include a summary of recommendations and details related to the observations, risks, impacts, and recommendations for each area assessed. After the report has undergone internal review, we present in-person where you are invited to ask questions and determine next steps. Annual independent assessments are recommended for a best-practice approach.

Understanding increasingly complex security threats and the implications of a breach is critical in the race to outpace your attackers. Get on the front foot with a bespoke assessment tailored to your unique business requirements.

Data<sup>#</sup>3 Security Assessments

Vulnerability assessment

Passive, non-invasive tests to search for vulnerabilities without attempting exploitation.        We evaluate physical, technical, logical and administrative controls while providing observations, potential risks and impacts, and recommendations.

Penetration testing

Active and potentially disruptive tests designed to actively attempt the exploitation of discovered vulnerabilities, covering planning, reconnaissance, and vulnerability analysis, as well as attack modelling, exploitation, and post-exploitation actions.

Gap analysis & health checks

Evaluations of systems and technologies – such as firewalls, wireless networks, applications, and servers – to determine current performance and security footprints against industry and vendor best practices. We can also evaluate cybersecurity posture against a set of requirements and frameworks to achieve compliance.
