Often, when it comes to security technologies, organisations are forced to accept the “it works, just trust us” marketing copy without ever being able to validate their effectiveness within their own environment. Thus, despite knowing the security flaws, many organisations fail to detect intrusions. Offensive security testing (i.e. Penetration tests or Red Team exercises) pinpoint many security flaws but leave it up to the organisations to fix them alone. None of these tell the IT department how to improve their tools to detect breaches or how to detect them faster. Privasec’s Breach and Attack Simulation on the other hand focuses on helping your organisation to fine tune your tools and processes and trains your SMEs to detect when you are actually under attack.
