"The main ingredients for success when it comes to enhancing an organization's cyber security posture are commitment and regularity," says Caruso. "Every company relying on the digital world in any form or fashion has to understand it's not a choice today, it's a necessity, and they have to be committed to making a stand and following through with it. They have to understand what they are vulnerable to, which can be very unique company to company, and they have to know what their weaknesses are. And it's not a one shot deal, the process has to be repeated regularly to make sure the organization's cyber security posture evolves with the cyber threat landscape. That's why we always recommend combining our professional vulnerability assessments with our comprehensive penetration testing services , and since the human element in any security chain is typically the weakest link, we also put a strong focus on social engineering throughout. And because we have the real-world experience and an extensive, proven background covering a wide array of clients, we can typically flat-rate proposals to take the guess work out of the process. We also try our best to promote regularity by offering even further discounts when organizations sign up with us for bi-annual, or quarterly assessments and testing. The added advantage to that is we will find and eradicate any malware or intrusion that may have come into existence between cycles, and with many intrusions today often lasting months or even years, it's much better to spot it and fix it sooner rather than later, not to mention far and away less costly to the organization in the end."
