ITsec staff can best be described as ethical hackers. They combine the skills of a hacker with the accuracy of your accountant and the integrity of your notary. Quality and reproducibility form the basis of all of our work. Most ITsec employees are recruited at local institutes of technology and subsequently trained in various IT security domains by ourselves. ITsec can rely on a long standing relation with technical institutes in Alkmaar, Haarlem and Amsterdam, where ITsec participates in IT security-related parts of the curriculum. Promising students are timely scouted and approached for graduation projects within our company.
AVMS is a well-known ITsec service. AVMS, developed early 2001 in cooperation with a major Dutch bank, is an Internet-based vulnerability scanning service. Subscribers to AVMS are periodically informed on the security status of their Internet-facing services through reliable and concise reports containing not only an oversight on potential vulnerabilities, but also recommendations on how to mitigate reported risks. AVMS is backed-up by a professional helpdesk at our Security Operations Centre, available for ad-hoc support in the follow-up of vulnerabilities.
