The GDPR recommends reviewing data sensitive applications and critical infrastructures for security risks regularly and testing the effectiveness of the implemented security mechanisms. Our GDPR Web Audit detects precisely such security gaps and helps you comply with the GDPR recommendation.

Our external GDPR Web Audit ...

  • Assesses privacy-relevant information in accordance with the GDPR
  • Detects configuration and operating errors
  • Identifies external weak points and thus deviations from the GDPR recommendation
  • Identifies the use of tracking software
  • Analyses authentication methods and the implementation of encryption
  • Verifies the purpose and geolocation of the web application
  • Identifies external resources incorporated into the web application thereby ensuring active protection at all times
  • Sustainably increases security at a technical and organisational level
  • GDPR-relevant IT security features checked point-by-point by an independent cyber security expert

Cloud services have become an integral part of today’s everyday business life. Out of necessity however, employees often use services that have not even been approved by the company. If sensitive data reaches the cloud during this process, this can have serious consequences. With our Cloud Access Audit, we identify the services being used by your employees and analyse the risk associated with them.

Your benefits of the Cloud Access Audit

  • Visibility of the cloud services used and the risks associated with them (risk score)
  • Possibility of consolidating and monitoring the cloud services used
  • Practical recommendations to improve cloud security


Our penetration tests provide a reliable assessment about the security status while considering all the factors, which could influence security: applications, systems, networks and users. In order to analyse these decisive factors in detail we offer a selection of tests. The result is an individual penetration test, which takes full account of the specific threats posed. Whether your infrastructure is protected against external or internal attacks will come to light in a penetration test conducted by our security experts.

Our Ethical Hacking and Penetration Test offer covers:

  • Penetration Tests (internal and external)
  • Malware Protection Test
  • Anonymous web application test (e-banking, portal, e-shop etc.)
  • Privileged web application test (e-Banking, Portal, e-Shop etc.)
  • Mobile application test
  • Remote access test (suppliers & employees - VPN access)
  • Notebook Client Test (mobile users with and without admin rights)
  • WLAN infrastructure test
  • Social Engineering
  • Cyber Attack Simulation / Red Teaming

Penetration Test

In conducting a social engineering audit we examine the security behaviour of your employees. Our social engineers attempt by personal contact to your employees steal confidential information by exploiting the trust, good faith and helpfulness or excessive demand and uncertainty of the employees. Depending on the test objective and target group, we use different methods and types of social engineering attack, ranging from direct contact, either by telephone or in person, to electronic channels, such as email, chat or social network platforms, up to postal contact with the target. Where required, we also add the selective handing over of manipulated USB storage media, the systematic data analysis over the Internet, or the evaluation of log files and system information to our attack repertoire.

In principle, we look at how your employees respond to the following aspects:

  • Compliance with security-relevant business processes
  • Handling sensitive company information
  • Compliance with user guidelines
  • Compliance with IT security guidelines
  • Compliance with access regulations

With our vulnerability management, you have an efficient opportunity to identify, analyse and evaluate possible IT weak points. A vulnerability scan supplies essential knowledge for the evaluation of the current risk situation and the effectiveness of measures, which have already been taken. The VulnWatcher runs periodic automated checks on your IT systems (switch, firewall, server, clients, etc.) to detect and solve weak points and missing patches. A ticketing system monitors any detected weaknesses, including risk assessment, along with information for remedying them. Proactive checks of your ICT infrastructure reveal changes in the systems and detect not only weak points from manufacturers but also incorrectly configured systems. If the system detects weaknesses having a level of potential risk you defined, the system sends an e-mail alarm and/or text alarm automatically to the system managers.

Your benefits:

  • Proactively verify, evaluate and remedy weak points
  • Optimise IT processes through automated scans involving integrated risk assessment and alarms plus a user-friendly ticketing system
  • Efficiently monitor compliance with requirements

More than half of all breaches involve web applications - yet less than 10% of organizations ensure all critical applications are reviewed for security before and during production. Clearly, organizations need a way to replace fragmented, manual penetration testing with ongoing, automated scanning so they can protect their global application infrastructures.

Our scalable cloud-based platform secures all your applications across the Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC) - from code development to pre-production testing and production.

Industrial control systems (ICS) and critical infrastructures are frequently referred to together as SCADA and are found in the energy sector, in production systems, in critical infrastructures and in industrial networks and industry 4.0. Their impaired function or failure can have serious consequences. Our security audit will prevent production downtime due to external attackers. The systematic ICS & SCADA audit is a thorough, technical and conceptual security audit of the ICS and SCADA systems and the related components.

Your benefits:

  • Proactive verification and assessment in ICS and SCADA systems
  • Increasing security by following a systematic procedur
  • Targeted technical system audit in the form of penetration tests and vulnerability scans
  • Risk-based recommendations on measures by security experts with a proven track record
  • Efficient review of compliance requirements

Ready for SWIFT Compliance? This year, SWIFT is once again issuing more stringent regulations for financial service providers. New SWIFT controls have been added, and several have been upgraded from advisory to mandatory. A real problem for many companies is the one-year period in which the changes must be made. Where does that leave you?

Kickoff & Planning

  • Interpretation of the applicable processes, instructions, systems etc.
  • Identification of critical systems
  • Defining of the organisation, roles and framework conditions of the project
  • Definition of testing range (Scope)
  • Creation of interview plan

Establishing the actual situation

Many Swiss companies are scared of a cyber-attack. An important first step is to run checks on their own cyber security. Our Gap Analysis is carried out based on the internationally recognised NIST Cyber Security Framework (CSF), providing you with the transparency you need.

How you benefit from our NIST CSF gap analysis:

  • You are given an overview of your current cyber security situation.
  • You are made aware of the major risks and they have been assessed by independent experts.
  • You understand your strengths/weaknesses profile with respect to the NIST CSF.
  • You receive concrete recommendations for the measures that need to be taken - prioritised on the basis of the risk assessment - and you can start optimising your cyber security straight away.
