Top Five Penetration Test Discoveries in 2019

In the first half of 2019, Lares analyzed the findings from 50 engagements and found they share common configuration issues that can be easily resolved.

After conducting these penetration and red team tests, Lares encountered a seemingly endless number of vulnerabilities, regardless of organization size or maturity. Through this analysis, Lares documented its findings on the most frequently observed penetration weaknesses from 1H2019.
These top five findings were in “95 percent of the tests” and shared exclusively with Infosecurity:

  • Brute forcing accounts with weak and guessable passwords
  • Kerberoasting 
  • Excessive file system permissions
  • WannaCry/EternalBlue
  • Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) lateral movement

Contact Lares for more information or download its detailed findings in this free report.

EPCS Certification Protects What Matters Most

Electronic prescribing of controlled substances (EPCS) has mandates at the federal and state levels governed by the DEA to reduce the potential for diversion, and subsequent abuse of controlled substances.  Whether you are an EHR application provider, have a pharmacy application, integrate to a third party for e-prescribing functionality, or are updating to the new NCPDP 2017071 SCRIPT by January 1, 2020 — the DEA requires you to be EPCS certified. No matter what your organization’s status may be, we are ready to help you.

As a premier EPCS certification service provider, Drummond helps our clients obtain EPCS certification in accordance with the DEA regulations. States that mandate this today include New York, Maine, Connecticut and Pennsylvania. By 2020, up to an estimated 25 states will mandate EPCS certification.

Take a security-first approach to EPCS certification. Our strategic partner, Lares, offers a special 1-day Cybersecurity Assessment Workshop to help protect what matters most.
