If a vulnerability  is not detected and closed by the IT Administrator in a timely manner, it can be detected by attackers and infiltrated using these vulnerabilities. The effects of infiltration are varied. There may be problems such as destroying the system, ending the operation, theft of information or financial losses, threatening private lives by entering the camera system. Therefore, the IT Manager should have the infrastructure checked periodically and see the possible weaknesses and take precautions.

Vulnerabilities can have many sources, but are generally grouped into 8 main groups. The approach and prevention for each is very different and should be done by experts in the field. Here are 8 main groups:

Employees

Social interaction, talking about jobs in public places, taking data, documents or assets out of the company, sending documents and information by e-mail, downloading unauthorized software and applications, deleting security tools, taking unauthorized persons in-house by employees, protecting passwords, sensitive information the lack of information security awareness are some of the possible weaknesses caused by employees.

The most important cause of the weaknesses caused by the employees is carelessness and insensitivity. Such situations can be solved effectively and regularly by organizing information security awareness trainings, anti-phishing solutions and using Data Leak/Loss Prevention (DLP) System.

Former Employees

Company’s private information and sensitive documents those are obtained by former employees are the most important weaknesses.

To prevent such situations, we recommend using the Data Leak / Loss Prevention (DLP) System and End User Control and Tracking software, especially in suspicious individuals or departments with highly confidential information.

Technology

Social communication, the use of social media within the company, file sharing, fast changing technologies, storing sensitive information on mobile phones, messaging, and using devices that are not fully understood in the company’s environment are some of the technology originated weaknesses.

To prevent such problems, we recommend using the application security module that mostly comes with your end-point security system. In addition, we also strongly recommend using mobile device control and management solution.

Hardware Infrastructure

Sensitivity to dust, temperature, humidity. The use of obsolete devices in the network that are no longer used, without maintenance support, and incorrect configuration of the devices are called hardware vulnerabilities.

Such problems can be solved by audits performed by 3rd party persons or organizations and solutions such as automatic vulnerability management and inventory management.

Software Infrastructure

Inadequate tests, lack of auditing, software and design errors, unauthorized user access, irregular, incorrect or complex codes, software outsourcing from unsuitable companies are some of the software problems.

To avoid such problems, static code analysis solution and application firewall should be used first. In addition, if the software is taken as an external service, it must be checked whether the certificates of the relevant company are complete.

Network Infrastructure

Unprotected network devices, exposed physical connections, IP addresses, insecure network architecture, unused user names, over-granted access permissions, wireless networks, unauthorized access to networks are possible vulnerabilities caused by network infrastructure.

We recommend using network access control (NAC) solution to eliminate such problems. It is also important to detect and detect suspicious traffic on the network in a timely manner. This traffic may be caused by an advanced and permanent attack (APT) targeted to your organization. In this case, We also recommend using a security intelligence solution, also known as Anti-APT.

IT Management

Inadequate IT capacity, important patches not taken into account, inadequate event and problem management, configuration errors and ignored security warnings, system operational errors, problems in business processes, inadequate rules and controls, lack of audits, inadequate risk analysis, frequent organizational changes are some of the weaknesses originated by IT Management.

To eliminate such vulnerabilities, your IT team must be established among people with international certifications. In addition, IT service management solution, end-user security solution and IT audit solution must be also provided.

Partners/Customers/Providers

Lack of telecom services, inefficiencies of companies providing electricity, gas and water services, problems of devices and applications used by third parties, lost letters, cargos, sensitive data that may be received in database entries are among the weaknesses caused by suppliers and business partners.

In order to prevent such problems, firstly, confidentiality agreements by third party companies must be complete. Physical or network entries of external persons to the company must be regulated. In addition, a database firewall solution should be used to control and authorize the employees of consultant firms that can access your database such as outsourced ERP consultants.
