What Digital Footprint will get you
Know what hackers see
Our digital footprint is the best way to start understanding which assets we expose, their risks and how interesting they are to attackers. Interesting targets should be carefully controlled and security controls should be considered.
By mapping out your digital footprint, your company can gain a deeper understanding of your digital assets and identify any potential weaknesses that need to be addressed.
Advantages of knowing your Digital Footprint
Mapping out your digital footprint should be a key priority for all companies before undergoing a penetration test, to identify vulnerabilities. This activity provides many advantages, including significant cost savings and faster results. By gaining a clear understanding of their digital assets, organizations can quickly identify any weaknesses or systems that require maintenance before undergoing a penetration test. This ensures that the penetration test provides the most valuable feedback, focusing on what matters most to your organization.
How does it work?
Engaging with the River Security team initiates a focus time period during which we conduct a thorough examination of your digital presence across the internet. Our meticulous search aims to identify all assets and their corresponding risks to provide you with comprehensive insights.
Our Digital Footprint serves as a crucial starting point for understanding the exposure, risks, and attractiveness of your assets to potential attackers. By carefully assessing the significance of potential targets, we enable you to implement robust security controls and ensure proper protection.
Rest assured, our Digital Footprint activities are designed to be harmless to your company assets. We prioritize the utmost care and professionalism to deliver insightful results without posing any risk to your organization's infrastructure.
Our discovery and assessment of all the assets will be included in a report. The report covers everything we have been able to observe our customer have in terms of digital assets.
The report typically gives immediate value to our customer. Within the report we will find focus areas revealing anything from credentials which must be changed, abandoned or unmaintained systems, old and vulnerable systems and more.
The report lists assets based on our penetration testers priorities. Systems we prioritize highly are those which expose risk and at the same time has a high value for our customer. For example an outdated VPN service providing access to internal networks would be a critical target for our customer to address, especially before criminals leverage the VPN to install malware such as ransomware.
