What We Do?
African Cyber's experienced team provides a large range of services and solutions.
Listed below are some of the services we offer.
Penetration testing, also known as pen testing, is a method of assessing the security of an information system by attempting to exploit its vulnerabilities. The goal of penetration testing is to identify any weaknesses in the system's defenses before attackers can find and exploit them.
Penetration testing typically involves a series of simulated attacks on the target system, using a variety of tools and techniques to identify and exploit vulnerabilities. This may include attempts to gain unauthorized access to the system or its data, disrupt its operations, or steal sensitive information.
Penetration testing can be performed manually or automated, and may be conducted both internally (by authorized personnel within the organization) or externally (by third-party security experts). It is an important component of a comprehensive security strategy, and can help identify weaknesses that may otherwise go unnoticed, allowing organizations to strengthen their defenses and better protect their assets.read more +
Cyber policy refers to the set of guidelines, principles, and rules that an organization or government puts in place to protect its digital infrastructure, assets, and data from cyber threats. These policies are designed to ensure that organizations have a comprehensive approach to managing cybersecurity risks and can respond effectively when an incident occurs.
Framework development is the process of creating a structured approach to implementing these policies. A cyber framework provides a standardized set of guidelines for organizations to follow in order to improve their overall security posture. Frameworks typically include best practices, controls, and metrics that can be used to measure the effectiveness of a security program.
A common example of a cyber framework is the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework. This framework provides a set of guidelines, standards, and best practices that organizations can use to manage and reduce cyber risks.
The development of a cyber policy and framework requires a thorough understanding of an organization's business goals, the level of risk it is willing to accept, and the regulatory environment in which it operates. It is important to involve key stakeholders and subject matter experts in this process to ensure that the resulting policies and frameworks are effective and aligned with the organization's overall objectives.read more +
Cyber incident response is the process of responding to and managing a cybersecurity incident or breach. This includes detecting, analyzing, containing, eradicating, and recovering from the incident in order to minimize its impact and prevent future incidents.
The goal of incident response is to quickly identify and contain the attack, mitigate the damage, and restore normal operations as soon as possible. Responding to a cyber incident requires a coordinated effort between multiple teams, including IT, security, legal, and communications.
Effective incident response planning involves developing an incident response plan (IRP) that outlines procedures for responding to a range of different scenarios. This plan should include steps for identifying and containing the incident, assessing the damage, communicating with stakeholders, and reporting the incident to relevant authorities.
In addition to having an IRP, organizations should also conduct regular training and testing to ensure that their incident response processes are effective and up-to-date. This can involve tabletop exercises, penetration testing, and other simulated scenarios to test the organization's ability to respond to real-world incidents.
Overall, cyber incident response is a critical aspect of any organization's cybersecurity strategy. By having a well-defined incident response plan and team in place, organizations can minimize the impact of cyber attacks and quickly return to normal operations..read more +
Cyber forensics, also known as digital forensics, refers to the process of collecting, analyzing, and preserving digital evidence in order to investigate cybercrimes or incidents. This evidence can include data from computers, mobile devices, networks, and other digital storage media.
Cyber forensics involves a combination of technical and investigative skills to identify and recover data that may have been deleted, encrypted, or otherwise hidden. The goal is to reconstruct the sequence of events leading up to the incident and to identify the individuals responsible for the attack.
The forensic investigation process typically includes several stages, including identifying and securing digital evidence, analyzing the data, documenting the findings, and presenting the evidence in court if necessary. It is important to follow standardized procedures and protocols to ensure that the evidence is admissible and can be used to support legal action.
Common techniques used in cyber forensics include file recovery, network analysis, malware analysis, and memory forensics. Forensic investigators may also use specialized tools and software to extract and analyze data from digital devices.
Overall, cyber forensics plays a critical role in helping organizations respond to and recover from cyber incidents. By collecting and analyzing digital evidence, organizations can identify the source of an attack and take appropriate action to prevent future incidents..read more +
Cyber tools and technologies refer to the various software, hardware, and techniques used to protect computer systems, networks, and digital assets from unauthorized access, data theft, malware attacks, and other cyber threats. These tools and technologies are essential for organizations of all sizes to maintain their online security and protect sensitive information.
Some common examples of cyber tools and technologies include:
Firewall: A network security system that monitors and controls incoming and outgoing network traffic based on predetermined security rules.
Antivirus software: A program designed to detect, prevent, and remove viruses, trojans, and other malicious software from a computer system.
Intrusion detection system (IDS): A tool that monitors network traffic for signs of suspicious activity or potential threats.
Virtual Private Network (VPN): An encrypted network connection that allows users to securely access a private network over the internet.
Encryption: The process of converting plaintext into ciphertext to secure data transmission and storage.
Penetration testing tools: Software tools used by ethical hackers to assess the security of a network or system by simulating an attack.
Security information and event management (SIEM): A centralized platform for collecting, analyzing, and managing security logs and events across an organization's systems and networks.
These are just a few examples of the various cyber tools and technologies available to help secure computer systems and networks. As cyber threats continue to evolve, it is important to stay up-to-date with the latest security solutions and best practices.read more +
