Blue Team Services

Improve Your Defenses Against an Attack, Without Adding Headcount

Continuously assess your SOC defense systems, proactively improve them, quickly respond to a real or simulated attack, and ensure regulatory compliance with our Blue Team services.

Blue Team Assessments and Audits

Map out your organization’s security gaps and establish strategic and tactical plans to prioritize and address cyber risks, including those that may exist within new services being planned for launch.

Compromise Assessment

With a deep understanding of threat actors and the latest tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs), our security experts will:

  • Identify current and past attacker activity in your environment
  • Identify weaknesses in your security architecture, vulnerabilities, improper usage or policy violations, and system security misconfigurations
  • Provide you with short-term and long term recommendations for further strengthening your security posture and augmenting your security investments to address any identified shortcomings

Compliance Readiness & Assessment

By identifying compliance gaps and developing
and recommending internal policy changes and
standards, we ensure you're ready for each and every audit. Our services include:

  • Compliance Gap Assessment
  • Compliance Readiness Advisory Services (PCI-DSS, ISO-27001, SWIFT CSF)
  • Security Policies & Procedures Development
  • Compliance Audits

IT Security Assessment

We focus on identifying vulnerabilities in the
configuration and setup of your network and IT
infrastructure components. Our assessment
provides you with a better understanding of the
security of your infrastructure components, as
well as actionable recommendations to mitigate
these risks.

Cybersecurity Risk Assessment

We examine adversarial and accidental (insider/disclosure) threats and assess their likelihood of occurrence, and then validate your organization’s vulnerability to these threats and their potential impacts (technical, legal, financial, reputational, compliance).

Red Team / Blue Team Exercises

Attack, defend, and learn.

The Red Team plays the role of the attacker. The Blue Team is the defender. In these exercises, the Cysiv Red Team is tasked with testing the effectiveness of your security program and the ability of your internal security team (the Blue Team) to stop these simulated attacks.
