Security Awareness Training
Talk to our Clients and they’ll tell you we’re really big on awareness training at all levels of the organization (board, management, technical, user, vendor, and customer, to be exact!)  Too often we view information security as a technology issue related to policy and procedures. However, we know that people present the greatest risk. By focusing on the awareness of your team members, your system security increases.

We will either help you create or we will digest your current Acceptable Use Policy and prepare a presentation centered around this policy. The presentation will combine materials made available to us through our affiliation with various organizations such as Indiana Bankers Association, ISACA, ISC2 and Purdue CERIAS. It will also include appropriate written materials for testing of users to establish due diligence documentation.

We c an analyze your IT Governance Program and help you create pinpointed, focused, appropriate and fun training for your management team, your technical team, your users and customers . . . . . even your vendors!


Security Awareness Training

Policy Assessments / Development
Many of our Clients enjoy streamlined, compliant, and easy-to-manage policies and procedures because they utilized Infotex to review and modify their overall Information Technology Governance Program.  Our extensive library of boilerplates scale up or down all depending upon the size of your organization.  Our consultants will not only help you write, but we’ll involve stakeholders and motivate compliance.

We offer a comprehensive evaluation and remediation service for policies and procedures. We review your existing documents to identify inadequacies. We assist you in preparing missing policies and procedures by helping you assemble a development team and walking that team through the development process. We provide you with the documents required by GLBA and sourced to the FFIEC requirements.


Policy Development

Forensics (Digital Evidence Collection)
Are you concerned you may end up in litigation and need an objective third party to quickly collect evidence while maintaining appropriate chain of custody and other forensic controls?  Our experienced professionals go beyond the normal data collection and preservation methods when it comes to computer forensics. We use specialized techniques for recovery, authentication, and analysis of electronic data when a case involves issues relating to reconstruction of computer usage, examination of residual data, authentication of data by technical analysis or explanation of technical features of data and computer usage.  And because of our Network Monitoring offering, and thus because we are 24×7, we can collect evidence at nights and on weekends . . . . . when you are more likely to want it done!


Digital Evidence Collection

FFIEC, CobiT, ITIL, ISO17799 Assessments
A full blown Information Technology Policy assessment includes an Information Security Posture Assessment as well as a Comprehensive Policy Gap Analysis. However, it also goes so far as to test the controls in existing audits. This approach can be taken with a specific framework as the over-arching audit control guideline, or can focus on the FFIEC guidelines, which is what most smaller, privately held financial institutions prefer.

Information Technology Risk Assessment Review / Training
Our experienced professionals go beyond the normal data collection and preservation methods when it comes to computer forensics. We use specialized techniques for recovery, authentication, and analysis of electronic data when a case involves issues relating to reconstruction of computer usage, examination of residual data, authentication of data by technical analysis or explanation of technical features of data and computer usage.

Web Application Security Review
Though this is also an “audit service,” many of our Clients have us perform this Web Application Security Reviews as a consulting service, even though  they are already a Managed Services Client (and thus infotex can not be independent as third party auditors).   The reason?  There are two:  1) Not a lot of audit firms can review code.  2) Our clients find our process to be very consultative.  Rather than presenting you with a list of to-do’s, we help you modify processes so that you organically design security into your site.

If you have interactivity on your marketing site, you may have vulnerabilities that should be mitigated. Our Web Application Security Review includes an extensive source code review, but also includes a review of the following technical controls: processes, user interfaces, encryption, authentication, and infrastructure. We also review non-technical controls: Systems Development Lifecycle (SDLC), change management, and documentation.
