KG Hawes specializes in security and compliance Network Audits for City and County governments. Our Network Audits are designed to uncover all existing and potential threats to your Network’s Security.
No Network is ever 100% secure, yet regular, annual Network Audits that assess and evaluate everything that goes on in your Network, can greatly reduce the threats to your system.
KG Hawes also helps government entities create and implement policies in line with HIPAA, PCI.
Network demands change as organizations evolve, grow and shrink. System mergers take place, and equipment & devices pass from one operational team to another, exposing Networks to many vulnerabilities.
Unsecured Network Assets
Unchecked and improperly secured hardware devices and software can be added to a company's network by anyone within the organization, often without the Network Administration's awareness.
Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)
BYOD use has increased exponentially, with over 80% of organizations now allowing employees to use personal devices to connect to corporate networks. While this provides a cost saving advantage to the employer, and a convenience for the employee, it also exposes your organization's network to major security issues.
Spear Phishing Attacks (SPAs)
SPAs are designed to infiltrate a Network and access sensitive data. Appearing to come from a trusted source, SPAs are delivered through emails that contain a link. Clicking this link usually results in the download of malware, spyware and/or Trojan Horses.
Removable media, such as MP3 players and USB devices can bring harmful malware into your Network System, as well as steal sensitive data out of it.
Network Upgrade & Refresh
If Networks are not updated and refreshed on a regular basis (preferably yearly), security can become compromised - Before upgrading, you will want to perform a Network Audit to access what is going on in your system. For instance:
