Security Weakness Assessment Team (S.W.A.T.)

How would you know if your network has been neglected by your MSP (Managed Service Provider) or (You're own IT Department)?  Call Virtual IT Security's SWAT Team


Neglecting to address network security abuse can cause widespread problems for both the service provider and its clients, which is why it’s imperative to remediate or mitigate the threat once it has been collated, parsed, and handled. This is the final phase in the network abuse handling process.


Remediation / Mitigation

Remediation occurs when the threat can be eradicated, while mitigation involves minimizing the damage as it cannot be fully eliminated. For example, Distributed Denial of Service (DDOS) mitigation routes suspicious traffic to a centralized location where it is filtered. Note that mitigation is generally less preferable as risks that cannot be fully eliminated are more costly to control. For instance, fixing a network security issue is better than blocking the port that could expose it.


Projects vary, and may involve the following:

  • Policy and procedure development and/or improvement
  • Implementation and/or configuration of technical security controls
  • Assistance with upgrading patches to existing systems – advising on the processes involved, such as automation and auditing
  • Evaluation and improvement of security posture by enhancing usage of current tools and by filling security gaps with new tools/processes
  • Analyzing incident response policies and procedures and advise on program improvements
  • New system/software implementation
  • Management and monitoring of security tools for anomalous and/or malicious activity
  • Assistance with incident response duties as needed
  • Ensuring auditing and event capturing processes are implemented and working properly (SIEM)
  • Building security baseline standards
