Berezha Security provides Penetration Testing, Social Engineering, Software Security, and Security Awareness services. We also help our clients establish and improve Application Security and Bug Bounty programs.
Not sure what security services you need?
Organizations can benefit from external expertise at any phase and every maturity level of their cybersecurity program.
It is important to remember that infrastructure and organizational security (protection of business processes), and product and services security (protecting clients) have fundamental differences and demand distinct approaches.
Before engaging in collaboration, we help you identify your security priorities and decide what security features you really need to improve right now.
Application Security Testing
The purpose of the Application Security assessment (or pentest) is to identify flaws and vulnerabilities that may be exploited by malicious hackers or malevolent users to compromise the application’s business logic or sensitive data.
Organizations often struggle to find competent experts who could review the security posture of their software in a non-automated manner. The market is full of service providers who start away with an automated scan using one of the off-the-shelf vulnerability scanners and then attempt to narrow down the results by reducing the number of false positives.
Unlike them, we apply only relevant security tests and guarantee a much higher quality of results and zero false positives for your developers to cope with.
Application Security Training
Application Security awareness training is a great starting point of a successful software security program and the basis of secure development culture in a product team. Also, it is recommended by the OWASP SAMM secure development framework as an essential practice of Education and Guidance function.
We have developed a training program that focuses on software security practices that we see crucial based on our profound experience in Application Security consulting. During a week of daily 3-hour sessions, we help development teams build a solid understanding of fundamental security engineering principles and software security practices. After the training, your development staff holds the optimal amount of software security awareness and their role-specific security knowledge.
Application Security Consulting
For the clients who are willing to build software security into their development processes, we offer guidance on how to do it quickly and effectively. We also provide outsourcing for Application Security practices of your choice.
Various approaches allow organizations to reach a decent level of software assurance maturity. Several methodologies help achieve this goal. At the same time, less than 20% of generally recommended Application Security practices are crucial for each and every organization, and choosing the optimal subset of practices requires reliable intuition built on profound experience. Do your programmers need extensive security training? What software security testing tools and techniques should your QA use? Is your budget enough for a capable code review automation solution (or do you really need one)? Coping with these and other questions could be hard if security is not your organization’s core expertise.
We help you select relevant security practices for your development teams. We then help implement those practices or provide them as a service.
Infrastructure Security Assessment
Similarly to the Penetration Test, an infrastructure security assessment is aimed at discovering the design and implementation deficiencies in the organization’s IT infrastructure, and produce actionable recommendations on remediation and improvement.
However, unlike the pentest, the IT infrastructure security assessment does not employ offensive techniques, neither does it assume that the organization already has a mature cybersecurity function. Instead of focusing on finding and highlighting deficiencies, we perform a purely constructive and positive exercise that is aimed at improvement of your cybersecurity posture above its current level.
Cybersecurity Penetration Test
Penetration Test may be the most widely known type of cybersecurity services out there for it is mandated by many national and industrial regulations. It is often used for measurement of the overall efficiency of a cybersecurity program.
Although the pentest presumes some level of security capability already present in the organization, many companies use it as a starting point in their cybersecurity journey. We do not recommend new customers to order a pentest unless they are absolutely sure that it is what they need. Instead, we advise starting with an IT infrastructure security assessment first.
For the organizations that are ready to have their security challenged, we offer best in class penetration testing and red teaming services.
Startup Security Healthcheck
Most startups do not explicitly focus on Application Security or cybersecurity in general. From the economic perspective, this behavior seems only logical: startup success rate is low and with this business risk in mind it is wiser to delay the sunk cost of security spending and focus instead at the stuff that matters at the moment.
Although justifiable early in the organization’s lifecycle, this approach causes a lot of troubles once the startup reaches success in a privacy- or security-regulated market. Building security into the software products later is harder, much more expensive, and could harm software functionality.
We help startups prepare for their future security challenges by conducting a threat modeling session, interviewing development staff on Application Security matters, and performing an express application security assessment of the MVP. And for Ukrainian startups, we do it for free.
Social Engineering Assessment
Social Engineering assessment applies the so-called Human Hacking techniques to measure your employees’ ability to protect the organization against malicious social engineers.
Most security professionals agree that it is easier to trick or manipulate a human to give away sensitive information or act in the attacker’s interest than to hack into a computer network. Humans are widely regarded as the weakest link of modern security systems but little is done to fix that. For instance, many organizations omit the social channel of attack when ordering a penetration test.
We believe that Social Engineering is an essential part of every attacker’s toolkit and testing against it should be a part of every organizational security assessment.
Security Awareness Workshop
Protecting the organization against modern cybersecurity threats might be hard without showing the executive management and employees at positions of trust how to combat modern cybersecurity threats.
We have developed a program for a full-day cybersecurity awareness workshop that covers the most critical and impactful threats. Working in small groups, we train the audience to detect attack attempts, to protect themselves and their employers against malicious hackers, and to share this knowledge with their co-workers. We help organizations form training groups that contain employees having formal, expert, and social authority, so by training them, we could plant a seed of powerful security culture in the organization.
Our training is based on more than a decade of network and social engineering penetration tests. Now we teach your staff how to defend against ethical hackers like us and the bad guys alike.
Social Engineering as a Service
What if we told you that everyday training of your body is the best way to prepare for a physical assault? I bet you would agree. What if we tell you that phishing your users regularly is the best way to train them against the contemporary cyberattacks?
By training your staff to detect modern Social Engineering attacks, we help your organization develop a strong security culture that ensured the protection of what you value the most: the trust of your customers, partners, and investors.
