The Holistic Security Mindset
Why it's essential
Security professionals often work in silos: cyber, physical, locks, CCTV… criminals don’t!
Criminals work in teams of specialists: hackers, burglars, fraudsters, whoever they need to get the job done. Vulnerabilities are often exploited by combining different attack surfaces, e.g. burglars will install malware directly to an organisation’s computers which will later be exploited by their hackers.
That’s why a holistic approach to security is crucial to identifying real-world threats. By combining multiple perspectives in integrated teams; penetration testing, red teaming and human hacking become more than the sum of the parts. Findings can then be integrated into a strategy which includes digital, physical and human solutions including bespoke staff training.
Increasing collaborations between organised crime and hackers, the developing Internet of Things and the growth of big data have made holistic security an essential weapon in the arms race against criminals.

Only multiple viewpoints can reveal the whole picture.
Our Holistic Threat Asssessment provides a real-world appraisal of how criminals can attack your business; as assessed from multiple perspectives.
Although it includes similar assessments to other ‘penetration test’ or ‘red team’ products, the HTA delivers far more than generic products.
The HTA48 could show you within 48 hours that your organisation looks like a soft target to a variety of bad actors.
Why do you need to know? If it doesn’t look like a soft target, most criminals will quicky move on, but if it does, you should seek advice and take action.
At We Fight Fraud we understand that you need to fulfil your legal training requirements, but our courses are designed to far exceed simply ticking a box. At the same time as helping you to meet your obligations our training helps you and your staff to identify, understand and manage your risk from financial crime.
