Cybersecurity for Financial Services Company
Industry: Financial Services
FRSecure is able to employ innovative tactics and strategies to accomplish their testing. They’re able to identify outdated information so the clients can make further improvements. The internal stakeholders are particularly impressed with the timeliness of their deliverables.
I’m the director of audit and risk management for Platte Valley Companies. We’re a financial services company that consists of three banks, an insurance firm, and an investment center.
We were required by our regulators to have an annual external penetration testing done, so we hired FRSecure to do it for us.
FRSecure provides us with standardized IT penetration testing. What they do is identify areas of improvement within our security by breaching our firewalls to look for weaknesses.
What is the team composition?
We work with Jennifer (Senior Account Executive) and Matt (Client Success Manager).
How did you come to work with FRSecure?
They reached out to me quite some time ago and sent me a free webinar. We went with them because we felt like they would provide the best value for us.
How much have you invested with them?
So far, we’ve spent around $6,500.
They implemented some tools and tactics that we haven’t seen before, and we just feel like the value they provide is good for the work that they do. They gave our in-house IT team actionable information to keep the project going.
How did FRSecure perform from a project management standpoint?
Their whole process is thorough so we’re able to identify outdated security information like expired SSL certificates.
What did you find most impressive about them?
timeliness of the work, so we’re very impressed with how they start and end their work on time. Even though we’re a small client to them, we still feel like we’re certainly valued.
Are there any areas they could improve?
I can’t think of anything because we’re pleased with the work they’ve done.
