PLEX Red Team Works With City of Ridgeland

During April 2016, the PLEX Solutions Red Team traveled to the city of Ridgeland, MS, to perform a light-weight, low-cost cybersecurity assessment of the Ridgeland City Hall, Police Department, and other city service offices. The assessment helped Ridgeland’s IT staff validate that their security program was working as intended and helped identify some other areas that needed improvement. Rather than just assessing the security of their network and providing a report, PLEX Solutions has partnered with the City of Ridgeland’s IT staff to mentor them in building their own internal security testing program so that they, themselves, can perform many of the basic security scans of their network going forward. Through knowledge transfer, PLEX Solutions seeks to truly improve its clients’ cybersecurity programs and resilience against hacker attacks.
