System Hardening for a listed Software Company - Cyber Security Case Study
By conducting the hardening exercise for making their environment more secure the organization contracted us. The client assigned us certain machines for performing hardening and prepare a checklist containing end results. As the exercise was performed remotely due to COVID-19 pandemic situation, we completed the assignment using VPN connectivity.
Hardening is the process of reducing the attack surface. We logged into the inscope machines and manually checked for open ports, policies, installed applications, firewall and much more for covering all the aspects of hardening.
