Darn IT Group’s Cybersecurity Assessment Services test key aspects of a client’s environment for flaws that could be taken advantage of by an attacker. The goal is to build awareness that helps secure and protect your environment. Darn IT Group first performs a Vulnerability Assessment against the identified infrastructure to highlight vulnerabilities that an attacker might use to compromise the integrity of the systems in play. Darn IT Group then performs various Penetration Tests in order to better understand and improve upon the organization’s present security posture.
