Secure your data and protect your business from cyber threats.

Being a target is expected. Becoming a case study shouldn't be.

In an increasingly digital world, organizations continue to adopt technologies that put mission-critical data and tools online and in the cloud. As the reliance on technology to make businesses more competitive continues, interruptions caused by security issues can create serious consequences.

The Technology and Risk Advisory group provides services designed to gather situational information, build strategy, and implement effective controls to mitigate risks to technology and critical business data.

Web Application Security

Vulnerability assessment and penetration testing on web applications, as well as customized compliance reports and application remediation assistance.

IT Vulnerability Assessment

Ensuring critical network, server, and data infrastructure is managed and secured against tampering and data loss. TaRA provides advanced reporting to manage vulnerabilities and source solutions to ensure technology infrastructure risk is mitigated.

Business Analysis

Process and technical operation can often expose potential gaps in security that are often overlooked until it is too late. A comprehensive security plan should include evaluation of operation of technology, policies, and business continuity plans.

Critical Incident Response

Having a well designed plan for incidents can mean the difference between a minor inconvenience, and business being interrupted for extended periods. Protect your operations, your data, and your brand by having a ready plan to put into action the moment an issue arises.

Penetration Testing

“Red Team” exercises designed to test all aspects of a business’ technology, policies, procedure and even people. Full penetration testing can provide a complete situational analysis of an organization’s security posture.
