D.A.E.R  Approach

With the knowledge-leadership and extensive experience of information assurance, Cybersecurity Crusaders has formulated its own Security Assessment methodology to identify and assess the risk that an organization’s critical information assets face. Security assessment is an exercise of assessing the effectiveness of an organization’s security controls by subjecting IT systems to real-world attacks. By using the Cybersecurity Crusaders methodology, an organization no longer have to rely on general best practices, anecdotal evidence, or superstitions because it provides verified information that is specific to one’s needs.

We develop a customized workflow based on your unique business needs with a method based on the penetration testing execution standards.


“Know thy se“Know thy self, know thy enemy. A thousand battles, a thousand victories.” – Sun Tzu 


“The general who wins the battle makes many calculations in his temple before the battle is fought. The general who loses makes but few calculations beforehand.” – Sun Tzu.


“What is of supreme importance in war is to attack the enemy’s strategy.” – Sun Tzu


“The opportunity to secure ourselves against defeat lies in our own hands” – Sun Tzu


Our Approach to Security Assessments


The Security assessment cycle begins with the DISCOVER phase. During this phase, target systems, network ranges, ports and services, and vulnerabilities in running services and configurations will be identified through a series of reconnaissance exercises. Consequently, the objective of this stage is to identify your organization’s critical assets.


Essence of security assessment lies in its approach, i.e. testing systems against real-world threats. Consequently, during the EXPLOIT phase, techniques used by hackers and crackers shall be simulated in a controlled environment to prove and verify the identified vulnerabilities and to assess the extent of their effects.


During the ANALYSE stage, findings from the previous stage are analyzed from a business perspective to effectively translate the vulnerabilities into business risks.


The success of a Security Assessment exercise depends on the actions and steps taken by the organization to mitigate the risks. To ensure success of the entire exercise comprehensive reports are presented and submitted to the management during the final REPORT stage. Additionally, a compliance report, a risk assessment report along with a strategic risk treatment plan shall also be developed specifically for your organization!

Cybersecurity Crusaders shall assess the IT infrastructure of customer by performing Security assessment of all the channels which include human, physical, wireless and data networks of customer.

The final report includes both successful and unsuccessful attempts to exploit the provided scope items by the Technical Team
