It provides practical insights so your staff can protect themselves from common attacks and the cyber threat landscape is explained through real life case studies to highlight and reinforce the reality of these threats.
The initial onsite (or webinar) session presents relevant information about new or emerging cyber risk vectors and is within the reach of non-technical business users. It is particularly focused on bringing to top of mind the critical role of all staff as the first line of protection from cyber threats.

For your business to grow, you need to be able to manage risk: no risk, no profit, wrong risk, also no profit – and maybe no business! Risk and opportunity are hand in hand, but IT is risk not correctly managed can adversely impact your business goals. To manage IT risk you need a clear view of:

FooForce does have accredited auditors so we can give you enterprise value but without the enterprise sized price tag.
FooForce IT and Security Review Will Help You:
Make informed business decisions:
- IT Systems must be available when needed so that business decisions are timely and accurate.
- The IT systems must be protected against all types of losses and disasters so that business continuity can be assured.
- The IT audit reviews how well IT is aligned with business goals and recommends improvements.
- Business development is enhanced when the resources available are clearly known.
Better safeguard IT assets:
- Information is a critical asset of a company and its protection and management should be a priority.
- Information should be disclosed only to those who have a need to see and use it and not to anyone else.
- Assurances must be available that no unauthorized modification can be made to the data or the software in the systems.
Gain improvements in governance:
- Quality audits assist with corporate governance by reviewing relevant compliance requirements for the company for information storage, privacy, use of personal data etc.
- Regulatory responsibilities can be met for a range of stakeholders including shareholders, suppliers, customers, communities and governments as well as related contractual agreements and policies.
Save money through productivity and efficiency gains:
- Efficiency and productivity is enhanced when business processes are properly supported by IT. The audit identifies areas where changes are needed to make more efficient use of IT to support business processes and priorities.
- Operational excellence can be achieved through reliable, efficient application of technology.
Optimize the IT budget:
- The IT Audit reviews services and technology against accepted industry standards so the company can identify possible areas where costs can be reduced.
- Planned IT projects should be reviewed to ensure these properly align with business goals.
Internal and External Security And Penetration Testing
With cyber attacks becoming the norm, it is important to undertake regular vulnerability scans and penetration testing. The FooForce suite of services and tools will enable you to identify vulnerabilities and ensure on a regular basis that the cyber controls are working. The full scope of the penetration testing will:
- Determine weaknesses in the infrastructure (hardware), application (software) and controls.
- Test controls have been implemented and are effective – this provides assurance as to information security and demonstrates compliance and cyber resilience to your Board and senior management.
- Test applications that may be avenues of attack.
- Discover known and new vulnerabilities in existing systems, processes and user awareness.
Critically, the activities and tools employed by FooForce in these services are not intrusive for staff and will not affect productivity during the testing period.
The combination of testing and exposing potential vulnerabilities across infrastructure, web and cloud assets, wireless networks and, importantly, staff awareness and behaviour helps you to:
- Identify the resilience of your infrastructure security controls and the ways an attacker might gain unauthorised access and control and provides you with visibility on the security vulnerabilities within your infrastructure that could be exploited in an attack.
- Assess the key components of your web applications and supporting infrastructure, including how these components are deployed and how they communicate with users and server environments to highlight the security of applications that broker access to critical data.
- Detect access points and rogue devices, analyse your configurations, and test for vulnerabilities so that you can implement security controls to prevent an attack.
- Identify whether your employees are vulnerable to phishing emails, enabling you to take immediate remedial action to improve your cyber security posture and particularly make clear where you need to apply internal security awareness and how your organisation reacts to attempts to compromise your staff.
