Security, Auditing, and Privacy

As an IT Professional, one of your most important responsibilities is to ensure that your environment is a secure one in terms of protection from known vulnerabilities.To many organizations, this often means just making sure patches are applied. That is necessary, but patching alone isn’t the complete answer, many problems are not resolved by patching. Critical security issues can be the result of accidental or negligent misconfigurations of some system component, poorly coded applications (especially web applications), the result of some past malicious activity, or any number of other factors.

Scanning and Security services

WSC can accurately scan, diagnose, and continually monitor your network using any number of tools. I amĀ  rated at the expert level or above on the following tools and methods:

  • Metasploit: Scanning and testing code for possible exploits
  • Operating system upgrades and patching
  • Custom complies of base operating systems

Security consulting and hardening

I have years of real-world experience in the securing of the standard suite of OS-level applications from attack, including the hardening and securing of MySQL, Apache, IIS, Tomcat, sendmail, postfix, qmail, and many other applications. We can advise our clients on how to appropriately patch their existing codebase to prevent Denial of Service and other attacks, can secure firewalls, and configure networks for optimum, secure performance.
