In today's digital age, it's essential for companies to have a clear understanding of their digital assets to effectively protect themselves against cyber threats. At times, companies may struggle to gain a comprehensive overview of their digital assets, leaving them unsure of where to implement cybersecurity defenses. By mapping out their digital footprint, companies can gain a deeper understanding of their digital assets and identify any potential weaknesses that may need to be addressed.
Get into the scope
Mapping out the digital footprint should be a key priority for companies, especially 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 the organization. The advantages of mapping out the Digital Footprint is plentiful, here are some of them:
How does it work?
You engage the River Security team for a specific time period, where we then start scouring the internet, looking for any asset and correponding risk to the customer.
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.
Digital Footprint activities are considered harmless to the company assets.
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. System 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 For example an outdated VPN service providing access to internal networks would be a critical target for our customer to address, especially before criminals leverage the VPN to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.
