Enterprise Cyber Security Overview
Cyberspace and its underlying infrastructure of the company are vulnerable to a wide range of risk coming from both physical and cyber threats and hazards. Sophisticated cyber writers, actors and nation-states exploit vulnerabilities to steal information and money and are developing capabilities to disrupt, destroy, or threaten the delivery of essential services. A range of traditional crimes are now being perpetrated through cyberspace. This includes the production and distribution of child pornography and child exploitation conspiracies, banking and financial fraud, intellectual property violations, ransomware and other crimes, all of which have substantial human and economic consequences.Read more
Cyberspace and its underlying infrastructure of the company are vulnerable to a wide range of risk coming from both physical and cyber threats and hazards. Sophisticated cyber writers, actors and nation-states exploit vulnerabilities to steal information and money and are developing capabilities to disrupt, destroy, or threaten the delivery of essential services. A range of traditional crimes are now being perpetrated through cyberspace. This includes the production and distribution of child pornography and child exploitation conspiracies, banking and financial fraud, intellectual property violations, ransomware and other crimes, all of which have substantial human and economic consequences.
Cyberspace is particularly difficult to secure due to a number of factors: the ability of malicious writes to operate from anywhere in the world, the linkages between cyberspace and physical systems, and the difficulty of reducing vulnerabilities and consequences in complex cyber networks. Of growing concern is the cyber threat to critical infrastructure, which is increasingly subject to sophisticated cyber intrusions that pose new risks. As information technology becomes increasingly integrated with physical infrastructure operations, there is increased risk for wide scale or high-consequence events that could cause harm or disrupt services upon which our economy and the daily lives of millions of people depend. In light of the risk and potential consequences of cyber events, strengthening the security and resilience of cyberspace has become an important Raqmiyat security mission.
Today’s world is more interconnected than ever before. Yet, for all its advantages, increased connectivity brings increased risk of theft, fraud, and abuse. As Nations and companies become more reliant on modern technology, we also become more vulnerable to cyberattacks such as corporate security breaches, spear phishing, and social media fraud. Complementary cybersecurity and law enforcement capabilities are critical to safeguarding and securing cyberspace. Law enforcement performs an essential role in achieving our nation’s cybersecurity objectives by investigating a wide range of cybercrimes, from theft and fraud to child exploitation, and apprehending and prosecuting those responsible. In Raqmiyat we conduct high-impact criminal investigations to disrupt and defeat cyber criminals, prioritize the recruitment and training of technical experts, develop standardized methods, and broadly share cyber response best practices and tools. Criminal investigators and network security experts with deep understanding of the technologies malicious actors are using and the specific vulnerabilities they are targeting work to effectively respond to and investigate cyber incidents.
Governments, military, corporations, financial institutions, hospitals and other businesses collect, process and store a great deal of confidential information on computers and transmit that data across networks to other computers. With the growing volume and sophistication of cyber-attacks, ongoing attention is required to protect sensitive business and personal information, as well as safeguard national security.
During a Senate hearing in March 2013, the nation's top intelligence officials warned that cyber-attacks and digital spying are the top threat to national security, eclipsing terrorism.

Web Application Security
Web application security is a branch of Information Security that deals specifically with security of websites, web applications and web services. At a high level, Web application security draws on the principles of application security but applies them specifically to Internet and Web systems.Read more
Web application security is a branch of Information Security that deals specifically with security of websites, web applications and web services. At a high level, Web application security draws on the principles of application security but applies them specifically to Internet and Web systems.
With increase in awareness of the internet and social networking site many people share information on the internet unknowing the consequences of the data breach. Increased information sharing through social networking and increasing business adoption of the Web as a means of doing business and delivering service, websites are often attacked directly by hackers. Hackers either seek to compromise the corporate network or the end-users accessing the website by subjecting them to drive-by downloading.
The majority of web application attacks occur through cross-site scripting (XSS) and Database attacks which typically result from flawed coding, and failure to sanitize input to and output from the web application. Phishing is another common threat to the Web application.
Web Application Assessment
While security is fundamentally based on people and processes, there are a number of technical solutions to consider when designing, building and testing secure web applications. In Raqmiyat we use set of sophisticated solutions and tools which enable us to address this risk

Why Do You Need Sandboxing for Protection?
Organizations breached by Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) are all over the news and sandboxing is the latest hot thing being touted to protect you from APTs. Why? Why sandboxing? What does a sandbox solution give you that you don’t already get from your existing layers of security?
A Sandbox gives you a chance to see into the future, into the unknown. We don’t live in a black and white world, where everything is known to be good or bad. The code that runs over your network spans a continuum from known good code to known bad or that includes malicious code. A lot is simply unknown. You are likely already running a number of security technologies to help protect your organization from malicious code and you are probably running technologies that help you identify good code. However, like most organizations, you are still at risk from the unknown. And that unknown gap in the code continuum is a significant one.
WHY DO YOU NEED SANDBOXING FOR PROTECTION? Sandboxing finally gives you a method to close the gap, to identify previously unknown attacks that traditional security technologies may not detect.
Sandboxing fit into the many layers of security in an organization.
WHY DO YOU NEED SANDBOXING FOR PROTECTION? How do I choose the best sandbox for me? You want a sandbox that effectively detects breaches and can detect them quickly. Make sure you choose a sandbox solution that’s been independently tested and rated, don’t just rely on vendor claims for effectiveness and performance. You also want your sandbox solution to work cooperatively with the rest of your network security technologies. Sandboxing doesn’t replace your in place antispam, IPS, antivirus, web filtering, IP reputation and application controls within next generation firewalls, secure email gateways and endpoint protection platforms. Your sandbox should work cooperatively with these technologies to provide an additional layer of protection that can be managed as part of a coordinated defense. Finally, sandboxing is resource intensive and solutions from different vendors vary widely in cost. Make sure your sandbox solution delivers the security you need at a good value.
