ELYSIUMSECURITY was asked to participate in the 2019 Mauritius National Cyber Drill where we presented on Incident Response in front of Mauritian organisations that are critical to the operation of the country.

Knowing what security features are included or not in the different packages offering from Microsoft can be confusing.

    Today's Cyber Security Risk Context

    In an attempt to make a wordy presentation slide into something more palatable, I created this infographic to illustrate the main contributing factors of the growing attack surface and attack vectors faced by many organisations today. This contributes to an overall growth of their Cyber Security Risks posture.

    ElysiumSecurity Ltd can help your organisation with assessing its attack surface and attack vectors to better understand its overall Cyber Security Risk posture and the remediation steps that should be prioritised.
