Security Testing

Security poses a major threat for modern businesses, as it has privacy, financial, operational and reputational implications. Information security is necessary to protect against the threat of breach or infiltration—and JDS’ team of security testing experts is here to help, providing security analysis and helpful, practical advice.

It takes 77% of business more than a day to discover that their system has been breached.

Protect your digital enterprise

Attacks on web-based software applications are associated with significant business risks, resulting in potentially irreparable organisational damage.  There is the fear of financial costs, lost reputation, and the devastation of customer trust and confidence.  These modern risks expose businesses to lost market, and potentially, operational failure: it is estimated that 60% of small businesses close within six months of a security breach. Security attacks may originate from competitors, governments, organised crime groups—or simply from opportunistic individuals.

Recognise and respond to the signs

The majority of breaches aren’t discovered within the first day, and in fact, many are not discovered until weeks or months after they occur. Historically, Australian data breaches have gone under-reported. However, this is set to change with new mandatory reporting laws that came into force from February 2018. This puts an immediate onus upon businesses to ensure a proactive approach to their security management, to head off risks now, and reduce later operational burdens. Security testing your front-line applications is the essential first step in this process.
