Our Exclusive Suite of Security Assessments

AMI Security Controls Assessment

 

Based on CIS Critical Security Controls and the NIST 800-53 frameworks, this assessment maps compliance mandates to technical standards, risks, and security controls. Make the most of your substantial investment in your AMI system through our exclusive AMI Security Controls Assessment. With AMI expertise developed over countless implementations, Red Clay will help you determine risks and create an ongoing security action plan.

Red Team Penetration Test

 

Unlike traditional pentests, which use mostly automated tools, Red Clay’s Red Team Penetration Test leverages our certified ethical hackers to manually probe and test your security controls just like real-world hackers. Finding and exploiting weaknesses and vulnerabilities in your systems is our key focus in this assessment. Working with our experienced professionals, your utility will build a plan to address critical weaknesses in your cybersecurity operations.

AMI Threat Modeling

 

A threat model is a description of a set of possible attacks to consider when designing a system. Furthermore, the threat model can be used to assess the probability, severity, and reasoning of certain attacks and allow for designers to implement proper controls for mitigation purposes. The development of a threat model includes listing the security assumptions, threat agents, motivations, threats, vulnerabilities, controls, and assets in the system of interest.

Because of the nature of AMI networks, it is not possible to conduct a real-world penetration test. As such, this service is designed to provide detailed simulated attacks against a virtualized model of the AMI infrastructure. By revealing both technical and structural vulnerabilities of AMI infrastructures, Red Clay enables decision makers to analyze the maturity of the architecture and its susceptibility to cyberattacks.

Threat Hunting

 

Red Clay has developed next generation cybersecurity automation in the form of advanced investigative analysis – more commonly referred to as threat hunting. Our technology was built to emulate data breach incident response methodologies by automating the workflows performed in advanced forensic analysis during large scale data breaches. We take the top-tier incident responder and bring it to you as intelligent, automated threat hunting services.

While other threat hunting companies are still manually driven by analysts investigating alerts, we have cutting-edge technology that dynamically investigates every alert for a full incident triage containing:

 

  • Analysis Audit Trail
  • Extracted IOC Listings
  • Alert Activity Timeline
  • Source Evidence Package
  • Dynamic Reporting Updates

We were fortunate to have a partner like Red Clay Consulting as the system integrator for this project. Their professionalism, dedication, and expertise enabled us to achieve quality implementation on time and on budget.”

“I had people on the project that had a lot of experience working with a lot of different vendors…and I asked them throughout the project, ‘How do you see this going? What’s your overall experience?’ The common message was that they really enjoy working with Red Clay. They felt that Red Clay and the IESO were working as a common team. So from that point of view, how we worked together, how we solved problems, how we delivered the final solution was done very well.”
