The actors in cyberspace who we need to worry about today are not the hobbyists who write viruses for sport. Rather, we should be highly aware of criminal enterprises and state sponsored cyber espionage actively stealing data. Criminals are after data that can be monetized and often employ fictitious emails known as spear phishing which dupe users into clicking links that result in infection as a means to steal data, often including personal identifiable information (PII). Worse yet, state sponsored attacks are very advanced and employ elusive techniques to infiltrate a corporate network in order to extract intellectual property such as designs, source code, and sensitive account information. We are finding every company is a potential target and no company is beyond reach. Are you prepared?
If an organization does not take the time to properly secure their enterprise, the repercussions can be severe – fines, lawsuits, loss of critical data, to significant reputation damage.
With a professionalism that is unmatched, Sword & Shield’s services have helped clients improve their defense against potential data compromise. Our unique testing platform, Gauntlet™ has proven effective in both commercial and government environments, reaching beyond traditional vulnerability assessments and exposing hidden risks.
Sword & Shield reviews collected data from multiple sources and provides an integrated network security analysis report. This report goes beyond the typical reporting provided by commercial scanning tools. Our consultants draw on their extensive experience and knowledge, ensuring that all vulnerabilities are categorized and documented. We use our in-depth reports, which feature detailed remediation steps, to clearly identify and describe critical vulnerabilities, and to provide a customized roadmap that leads your organization to a secure state.
Many organizations recognize that the risks are real and are increasing their spending on information security. However, many corporate executives are unsure about the effectiveness of their information security programs.

Sword & Shield consultants will test the effectiveness of your information security program using our steadfast methodology built on open source technology, providing a reliable and cost-effective solution.
Finding and fixing vulnerabilities is certainly a goal of any security assessment. With Sword & Shield’s extensive line of security services, our consulting team can help your organization successfully identify and remediate vulnerabilities, thus increasing your security posture and ability to resist attacks.
A project team will attempt to penetrate the defenses of an organization in order to test the effectiveness of current controls. A vulnerability scan is typically performed at the first stage of a penetration test.
Social engineering involves an attempt to gain unauthorized access to information through the human element, thus assessing the effectiveness of an organization’s security training, policies and procedures. Examples of this include phishing emails, pre-texting, and baiting.
Sword & Shield security consultants will gather sources of information from agreed upon networks, systems and network devices, and analyze the information for evidence of current or previous cyber attacks.
