Your Challenges

  • Keeping up with cybersecurity regulations like DORA (Digital Operational Resilience Act)
  • Third-party risk / supply chain risk
  • Scarcity of cybersecurity professionals
  • Malware and ransomware

The Euro Cyber Resilience Board has identified supply chain attacks and ransomware as key threats in the current environment, and artificial intelligence (AI) as an emerging threat.

Threat actors within the finance industry

The financial industry is a prime target for cybercriminals and is one of the most-attacked industries by cybercrime groups. These cybercriminals are mainly driven by financial gain and use a variety of methods for their attacks, for example ransomware, phishing, malware, digital fraud, vulnerability exploitation, supply chain issues, and DDoS attacks.

More threat actors with different motivations

In addition to cybercriminals, we see that there are other actors with different motivations, such as

  • Hacktivists who are pursuing social or political goals.
  • Nation state actors who are engaging in cyber espionage to cause disruption.
  • Insiders who exploit trusting vulnerabilities for personal gain, revenge or data leakage.
  • Sensationalists who attack systems primarily for fun.
  • Cyber terrorists who are out for large-scale chaos and fear.

FAQ'S

Which standards and frameworks does Secura use?

It is important that the depth and width of your security test are unambiguous. That is why we use international norms and standards whenever possible. The standards we use depend on the assessment goal, the environment to be tested (architecture, platform, application, etcetera), sector requirements and regulations per country.

  • The most important examples of the norms we use are:
  • Application Security Validation Standard (ASVS) for web and mobile applications (M-ASVS
  • Pentest Execution Standard (PTES)
  • OWASP Application Security Testing Guide
  • SANS-top 25: the most common and dangerous errors when making software
  • Sectoral standards such as PCI-DSS, BIO, DigiD and others.

What are the steps of a successful security test?

Your security test should be as complete and accurate as possible, so that you can make the best decisions regarding your security. This is why we follow a structured approach to all our security assessments, consisting of 4 basic steps:

1. Preparation
2. Testing
3. Reporting
4. Re-assessment – optional. A re-assessment is meant to test if the mitigations you adopt after this test actually work.

How does Secura report findings?

In case of a security test, you will receive a report within 10 working days of the end of the security test. You will receive a written report containing:

  • The answers to your research questions
  • The standards that we applied during the assessment (for instance: guidelines, best practices or information security policy
  • The methods and tools we used
  • Our findings and recommendations, including a clear explanation and risk classification. In these technical chapters, we describe which vulnerabilities we discovered and how they can be reproduced.
  • This way, engineers or developers tasked with remedying the vulnerabilities can take mitigating measures
  • A classification of vulnerabilities according to CVSS3 (Common Vulnerability Scoring System).
