Upgrading Cyber-Defenses

One of the world’s top hedge fund managers was concerned about the ability of a determined cybercriminal to target and breech his personal network. Using a combination of intelligence gathering, sophisticated social engineering techniques, proprietary software and technical know-how, a state-of-the-art “white hat” TAG hacking team was able to gain access to the network with a little more than a week of concerted effort.

Once inside the network, we were able to capture sensitive personal data about the client as well as key financial data that would have allowed an adversary to potentially transfer significant sums out of personal accounts. Based on our findings, we were able to bring to light a number of vulnerabilities in a vivid way that galvanized the organization and led to immediate upgrades in their cybersecurity stance.
