ROCHESTER — High Bit Security LLC celebrated the New Year by launching a new Web site focused on penetration testing, social engineering and security consulting, addressing what it contends will be the top identified security threats of 2013.
“The top threats of 2013 will be information manipulation via automated information systems, insecurity of the supply chain, mobile malware, security in the cloud, and implementation of electronic medical records,” said High Bit Security COO, Adam Goslin, citing research at the Georgia Institute of Technology.”
High Bit Security threat response products and services, along with the complete study, can be found on the new High Bit Security Web site at www.HighBitSecurity.com.
“The goal of the new site is not just to feature High Bit’s suite of services, but also to prompt serious thought about the security of each visitor’s own organization,” Goslin said. “IT security and the need to protect sensitive data has continued to receive a great deal of media attention. Unfortunately, news stories about breaches are on the rise. Most companies have no idea how insecure they are.”
Added High Bit chief business development officer Barbar Goushaw: “Security by obscurity simply doesn’t work. A relatively small investment in prevention of a security breach can save companies a fortune in after-the-fact costs. The first challenge in creation of the new site was to generate a sense of urgency. Securing sensitive data should be the first priority of every organization. If you don’t regularly validate your security stance, it’s a only a matter of time until your information — client records, employee data, and proprietary information — is compromised, copied, and probably sold, by cyber-thieves.”
Penetration testing is widely recognized as the best way to determine the changes needed to improve the security of the network and application layers of an organization. Penetration testing is one of two High Bit Security core competencies.
“The new site provides extensive information on the pen testing process” Goushaw said. “We wanted visitors to understand the depth of our testing methodology, and what we do.”
High Bit Security also built a strong following in the payment card industry.
“We provide PCI-DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) and PA-DSS (Payment Application Data Security Standard) consulting,” Goslin said. “PCI is the strongest security standard today, outside the Department of Defense, and is required for all organizations that process credit cards. PA-DSS compliance is required for companies who create payment applications for processing credit cards. Organizations facing either PCI-DSS or PA-DSS compliance can benefit greatly from assistance preparing for their audit. High Bit Security helps customers through their compliance objectives in a manner that suits their needs, yet remains conscious of their budget requirements.”
High Bit Security provides penetration testing and other security services to a national client base in the health care, credit card, financial and other industries. High Bit Security also provides security consulting services to our clients to assist them with their compliance objectives across PCI-DSS, PADSS, HIPAA, SSAE-16 or simply wish to perform a security best practices audit of their organization.
