Our Services

Information Security Advisory

We cover the whole spectrum of information security consulting services; security governance reviews (based on ISO, PCI-DSS and NIST), penetration testing, network security & architecture reviews, compliance audits and the amalgamation of these components of review to provide an enterprise security assessment.

Managed Services

Our bespoke managed security services are more of creating a relationship with our clients since we walk with them in their cyber-security journey. We categorize the services into 3; Phishing as a Service (PaaS), Vigilance as a Service (VaaS) and Staff Augmentation Service (SaS) to provide end to end security coverage.

Corporate Training

One of the greatest threats to information security could come from within an organization. Inside ‘attacks’ have been noted to be some of the most dangerous since these people are familiar with the infrastructure. It is not always disgruntled workers and corporate spies who are a threat. Often, it is the non-malicious, uninformed staff.



E-Learning

Effective cyber-security training on security basics and behavioral standards is not something accomplished through a one-time seminar or awareness session. From learning the language of security, to behavioral basics and changing standards, professionals of every trade can now have an opportunity to get acquainted with cyber-security, and then stay up to date as the world grows more connected, complex, and capable of devastating hacks, scams, and breaches.
.

Cyber Risk

The rate at which technology is moving and the number of offensive tools or methods being developed is unprecedented. Corporates, let alone law enforcement bodies are simply playing catch-up. We work towards bridging that divide or knowledge gap to ensure management in those organizations understand fully well the current state of cyber-security and the potential impact on their organizations in order to enhance prevention measures and shorten breach detection times to minutes.

Cyber Forensics

Extant provides expert advice to organizations or companies, other security and investigations firms where matters related to cyber-crime are concerned. Our insights on latest attack trends provide forensic analysts with relevant information that leads to fair and conclusive closure of cases. We cover cyber blackmail, cyber extortion, computer hacking, high tech identity theft, computer hacking, cyber bullying, sex-tortion and cyber fraud.
