Compromise assessment – why it is important?

Using the latest databases of compromise indicators, patterns of malicious behavior, and memory forensics tools, our experts evaluate servers, endpoints, and logs to determine whether your organization has been breached. 

Identifying compromised systems and bad practices will help you see your organization’s systemic risks and exposures as well as increase your ability to respond effectively to future incidents.

In a matter of days or even hours an ISSP compromise assessment:

  • identifies evidence of ongoing and past intrusions of your information systems.

  • assesses weaknesses and vulnerabilities in your security architecture.

  • defines missing and poor IT and cybersecurity practices.


What result can you expect?

  • Full asset and application discovery.

  • Detection of cyber threats and indicators of compromise.

  • Diagnosis of flaws that need to be fixed in IT and cybersecurity operations.

  • ​Technical evidence of compliance measures in place and deviations that need to be corrected.

  • Actionable recommendations on how to improve your cybersecurity posture.

How a compromise assessment is done?


ISSP conducts compromise assessments using a fully automated platform developed in collaboration with experts and researchers at the ISSP Labs and Research Center. The platform allows us to process large amounts of logs in a shorter amount of time compared to traditional methods. It is designed to retrospectively detect behavioral anomalies around employees, services, apps, and network traffic.

The compromise assessment platform is hosted on AWS and all data is protected with strong encryption algorithms and two-factor authentication. Once data is uploaded to the cloud using one of three types of automated Artifact Collectors, ISSP experts will track data quality and the validation process. Complex normalization algorithms prepare data for analysis and send the output to the platform.

After the data analysis and machine learning processes finish, the platform automatically builds a report. With the extended compromise assessment service, raw findings are also sent to ISSP security data analysts to manually enrich the report with additional recommendations.

The final report includes all major metrics describing the quality and quantity of data uploaded as well as indicating the kinds and degrees of risks associated with each finding.​

Easy-to-use three steps cybersecurity compromise assessment solution

Why you need a compromise assessment?


Validate existing security controls.

A compromise assessment helps you discover malware and persistent threats that have successfully breached existing defenses. It also helps you determine which technologies and solutions function effectively and which need to be updated or substituted. 


Support incident response.

Identifying compromised systems and bad practices will help you see your organization’s systemic risks and exposures as well as increase your ability to respond effectively to future incidents.


Assess third parties and vendors.

Third parties and vendors often have access to your networks and information systems and can be used by adversaries in supply chain attacks to get access to your critical data. A compromise assessment of third-party networks can ensure their integrity or enable you to find and patch critical vulnerabilities.


Who is a compromise assessment for?

A compromise assessment helps meet the needs of your organization based on its size, nature of business, IT and cybersecurity maturity, and budget.​

Are you among the 12% of

but you want to double-check your capabilities or want an independent assessment of your third-party contractors?

A compromise assessment can help you.


Are you a company

and equip it with the best technology and processes? Are you not sure you have enough capacity to detect a cyberattack before it’s too late?

A compromise assessment can help you.


Are you a

  • What is the Penetration Testing?
    A Penetration Test also known as a Pentest is a professional cybersecurity assessment that emulates the attacker's technics in compromising the target infrastructure. By holding a Pentest, you would practically define the weakest points of your infrastructure and be equipped with actionable information on mitigating discovered vulnerabilities and threats. Today, Pentest is considered to be one of the universal type of cybersecurity assessments, which proofs to third-parties that you care about your security.
  • How do I know that I need a Pentest?
    Top three reasons to start planning a Pentest: 1) If you have never carried out a Pentest or had one a long time ago, there are no doubts that it would be beneficial to plan an assessment now. 2) Most regulators and compliance standards in cybersecurity require to have a Pentest at least on the annual basis 3) If you have just made significant changes in your IT infrastructure, the vulnerability landscape should have significantly changed and you should update your awareness
  • How to define the cost per Pentest engagement?
    Once you defined that you need a Pentest, you would already know the key drivers and infrastructure elements a Pentester should focus on. A qualitative Pentest engagement is always a manually handcrafted piece of work, which utilizes tens and hundreds of special tools and services to maximize the vulnerability detection rate. Essentially, the cost structure for the Pentest is assembled from the certified ethical hacker's efforts and the tools, which are used for the particular engagement. For Enterprises the rule of thumb is that a Pentest engagement during the year shall not exceed 10% of the IT budget, while for SMEs these costs could be more significant compared to usual spending for IT. The best way to define the exact cost is to define the goals and develop a technical scope jointly with a Penetration Testing team of your choice.
  • What You Get in the Report?
    Your penetration testing report will contain: An Executive Summary for key decision-makers with no technical background, containing high-level results and what needs to be fixed immediately A Technical Summary with specific findings A description of successful attack vectors, demonstrating what vulnerabilities were exploited (and how) to penetrate the infrastructure Recommendations for remediation and risk management
  • When you need penetration testing?
    You had a breach, recovered, and now want to outline other possible attack scenarios You are about to release a major upgrade to your web app or you have developed your first mobile app and are about to launch it on the App Store or Google Play Store Your IT infrastructure was heavily rebuilt after you switched to working from home and needs to be assessed To win a deal, your client/partner/investor demands that you demonstrate cybersecurity compliance A regulator requests that you regularly perform pentesting Your most recent pentests were all delivered by your current service provider, so it’s a good time to change the attacker’s view and double-check previous results You want to start taking care of cybersecurity, and pentesting is an easy way to start
