Effectiveness of your Information Security System

Updated: May 3, 2023


The outbreak of the pandemic triggered many risks in Businesses and their Operations. Cyber risk is everywhere, and every organization had to change the way they operate and adapt to remote work and teleworking, which involved many cyber risks and threats.

The global standard for Information Security, ISO 27001, requires an organization to identify risks and implement security controls to manage the risks. These standards do not go into detail about the specific security controls or technologies that should be used. Proper information security programs should include people, process, and technology.

One of the best ways to measure and enhance the security program’s effectiveness is to run Vulnerability assessment and penetration testing (VAPT).

At Intertech Software Development-ISD, we implemented a step-by-step process for planning and conducting a VAPT and which recommends as below,

  1. List all your digital and physical assets, IT systems, network design.

  2. Perform final tightening to your systems and list all policies.

  3. Use different VA Tools to assess your systems.

  4. Get the list of findings.

  5. Categorized them and close all the Major and high-risk findings.

  6. Mitigate or close the medium finding.

  7. Study all the minor finding and decide if you can do something.

The organization might need to run penetration testing to find that they cannot do something towards it, and they have to live with it. Based on the regulatory standard the organization is complying with, they might regularly need to do VAPT

One of ISD’s best practices is to conduct a VAPT from time to time or after any changes to the IT systems or its assets.

ISD has software development capabilities for design and develops high-quality software applications for situational awareness and remote communication to monitor, verify, resolve, and manage events from remote locations. RAMsys is one of the flagship software products of ISD and has been built in our Intertech Development Environment (IDE), which follows all the best management practices for software development and a Certified ISO27001 Organization. All our software products are released after conducting a VAPT and successfully addressing all its findings.

ISD has a secure development environment certified by TUV-NORD after complying with international standards for information security – ISO 27001:2013.
