In this process, consider network reconfirms, third-party application security issues, software that has the potential to cause future infrastructure failure.

This process maps all systems that may contain faults and gaps, detailing these results through a technical report. With the information mapped, we can mitigate the possible vulnerabilities found, thus ensuring greater security to the environment in question.

I help companies of all shapes and sizes to realistically assess their security position and guide them to respond appropriately to weaknesses.
