About the Company

Established in 1990, ASC has provided professional information security services to many of the leading financial, manufacturing and health care corporations within North America and Asia.

We maintain staff and skills within all aspects of information security with an emphasis upon management, policy, procedures, contingency planning, cyber forensics and network security; especially those portions exposed to the perils of the Internet. In addition, we maintain a blog relating to Information Security at blog.e-computer-security.info and a security awareness site at thinksecurityfirst.org. We also are regular contributors to the (ISC)²® Blog.

Our experience within these sectors includes:

Cyber Forensics – Often referred to as computer forensics, it is the application of scientifically proven methods to gather, process, interpret, and to use digital evidence to provide a conclusive description of cyber crime activities. Cyber forensics includes the act of making digital data suitable for inclusion into a criminal investigation as well as to reconstruct specific computer configurations for the purposes of proving its capabilities. Typically the target is a home computer, laptop, server, or office workstation – to determine if the equipment has been used for illegal, unauthorized, or unusual activities. It can also include monitoring a network for the same purpose. ASC has experience conducting investigations within all of these aspects of cyber forensics.

Network Security – Developing and maintaining an effective network security program, both internal and the web facing environment is extremely challenging. The profile constantly changes resulting in new vulnerabilities as do the threats from malware and those that wish to compromise your network for their own nefarious gain. The tools employed by ASC include those commonly used by intruders are well as more sophisticated assessment tools that are designed to identify all possible points of weakness.
