Mitnick Security Consulting, LLC is a full-service information security consulting firm. Founded by Kevin Mitnick, and celebrating our 10th year in business, we offer a comprehensive range of services to help businesses and governments protect their valuable assets.
Understand us by the work we do:
A major internationally recognized credit bureau wanted an external party to challenge their company's security.
Mitnick Security's team was deployed and simulated threats by black-hat attackers against the bureau. Using physical exploits and social engineering, the team penetrated critical systems and data centers. This included being able to access the credit reports and personal information of consumers. As a result of our findings and recommendations, the bureau was able to dramatically improve their security.
The government of Ecuador was under the threat of having the presidential election stolen by hackers or hostile foreign governments capable of destabilizing the country.
Mitnick Security's team was engaged to protect and monitor the systems that tabulated Ecuador's 2013 elections to prevent tampering and manipulation. Vulnerabilities were assessed, and security was improved. The elections went smoothly and all unwanted activities were blocked.
"Penetrating a company's security often starts with the bad guy obtaining some piece of information that seems so innocent, so everyday and unimportant, that most people in the organization don't see any reason why the item should be protected and restricted.
Who are you going to call?
Mitnick Security provides the Global Ghost Team
Mitnick Security deploys its Global Ghost Team in a manner specific to each engagement, including augmenting our security specialists and trusted situational-specific resources. Then, using a blend of proprietary technology and methodologies, we test multiple attack vectors and simulate sophisticated hackers to analyze your company's attack surface. Our clients must understand the level of current risk and what they can accept in the future.
Kevin Mitnick, our founder and namesake, is the team leader. He instilled the term "Social engineering" into the world's security lexicon. Recognized as a world authority on hacking, Kevin has his team employ his methodologies and techniques (many not publicly known) in a manner that is the recognized standard for achievement.
Security is both an art and a science.
Psychology is at the core for both the attackers and the defenders, and technology itself is just a way to reinforce "secure thinking."
Our globally renowned team and "white-hat hacker network" use technology and knowledge to provide unparalleled analysis of and insight into your security risks and vulnerabilities. We implore all of our clients to do comprehensive testing even if they've been tested before or have internal security staff in place, because unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on your viewpoint) our team too often finds that organizations are compromised by malicious criminals, rogue nations, and, often, internal figures.
The Global Ghost Team probes and launches safe attacks against your applications, people, telecommunications, and internal and external networks. We have advanced up-to-the-minute knowledge of how hackers and possibly internal staff might seek to invade and damage your organization.
