Education

Education venues vary in size, purpose, and stature. The motives for attack can vary too. What might be a common threat for world-renowned Universities/Colleges might not be an issue for schools or school districts. So, institutions need to evaluate the risk and understand what data is vulnerable to unauthorized access. VDA can help evaluate the risks for your environment.

Automotive

Cybersecurity, within the context of road vehicles, is the protection of automotive electronic systems. Communication networks, control algorithms, software, users, and underlying data from malicious attacks, damage, unauthorized access, or manipulation.

Legal

The legal sector is particularly vulnerable to cyberattacks due to the volume of data, sensitive information, financial responsibility and authority it holds. Although the main reason law firms are targeted is for financial gain, there is also a growth in cyber adversaries seeking political, economic or ideological goals. VDA can help with cybersecurity concerns around your sensitive data.

Software

A software code audit is a comprehensive analysis of source code in a programming project with the intent of discovering bugs, security breaches or violations of programming conventions. It is an integral part of the defensive programming paradigm, which attempts to reduce errors before the software is released. A software development life cycle (SDLC) is a framework that defines the process used by organizations to build an application from its inception to its decommission. A secure SDLC process ensures that security assurance activities such as penetration testing, code review, and architecture analysis are an integral part of the development effort. VDA can help with your secure SDLC process, while you focus on the code and design of your product.

Industrial/IoT/Embedded

The world increasingly connected with IoT/Embedded Systems. The sheer breadth and complexity is staggering, and a massive endeavor to secure and support. Understanding the impact of IoT on cybersecurity should prove essential for any enterprise. VDA can help you evaluate and test your Industrial, IoT and Embedded systems that you have implemented or plan to implement.

Goverment/Defense

Agencies face sophisticated, ever-evolving cyber-attacks against critical infrastructure, systems and data. VDA’s robust federal cybersecurity solutions help agencies prevent, detect and respond to cyber-attacks, and ensure business continuity.

Finance

Financial institutions are leading targets of cyber-attacks. Banks are where the money is, and for cybercriminals, attacking banks offers multiple avenues for profit through extortion, theft, and fraud, while nation-states and hacktivists also target the financial sector for political and ideological leverage. Regulators are taking notice and implementing new controls for cyber risk to address the growing threat to the banks they supervise. VDA can help you define your security strategy and risk compliance program.

Healthcare

As the healthcare sector continues to offer life-critical services while working to improve treatment and patient care with new technologies. Criminals and cyber threat actors look to exploit the vulnerabilities that are coupled with these changes.

Mergers & Acquisitions Market

Don’t wait until after an M&A event to find out about the problems and security threats facing the organization you acquired. VDA can assess network sprawl, exposures, and risk to aid in resource and project planning, ensuring that you can make your evaluation with the right information.
