Information Security Risk Assessments

Threats to your information security can come in many forms.

Unaware employees, poor design of your network architecture, insecure modems, or a lack of physical site security can also lead to malicious attacks and breaches.

To thwart a hacker, you must be able to think like one. Our certified Security Analysts use the same skills and methods employed by malicious hackers in order to identify gaps or weak points in your physical and technical environments.


These Security Analysts are experts in the mitigation of risk through including:

Social Engineering

Social engineering is a primary way attackers can gain access to information held by your organization.  People are often the weakest link, however if properly educated, they can be your first line of defense against targeted attacks. To mitigate this risk, DDI can conduct an examination into the security awareness and behavior practices of your employees, contractors and patrons. DDI evaluates your organization's susceptibility through an on premise or remote information security risk assessment mimicking real-world tactics used by hackers.


Physical Security Reviews

Ensuring the physical security of your organization is absolutely imperative. If a hacker can gain physical access to your office, an employee’s desktop or any internal area, he or she can easily access sensitive information. Fooling an employee into disclosing a company password, piggy-backing into an organization’s employee entrance, baiting an employee by leaving a malware infected memory device in the parking lot are all examples of a physical attack – the impact of which can cause a breach that could devastate your company. Our highly trained and experienced Security Analysts will help you to identify the weaknesses in your physical security so that you can protect yourself against such a situation.


Enterprise Risk Assessment

As your organization changes or grows, the job of determining the degree of exposure to information asset risks becomes even more challenging, as does your ability to identify threats and implement effective plans for addressing them. If you haven’t performed one in the last two years, it’s time for an Enterprise Risk Assessment (ERA).
