Canberra Penetration Testing

Worried about black hat hackers getting into your business? Are you aware that almost all electrical devices could be hacked if not correctly designed and developed?

Traditionally, most hackers targeted Windows operating systems, due to there mass market share and the fact they were naturally unsecure and vulnerable to malicious software. However in todays world security experts are seeing a increase in serious attacks on smart phone, tablets and websites.

Attacks on websites can come in many forms such as changing the content of the website (aka defacing). However such vulnerabilities can lead to more serious intrusion on business databases, which can contain user, bank and credit card information. Furthermore, they may gain access to the website server administration account, which may allow them to install a "worm", which will automatically try to get further into your network and all its electronic devices (e.g. computers, smart phones and tablets), for more information gathering and malicious use for personal and/or financial gain.

Penetration testing can come in many forms such as external penetration testing (i.e. from a remote location) or internal penetration testing (i.e. assuming a hacker has gained physical access to the electronic device). This testing involves finding the weak points in a business, which can be caused by poorly written software, network holes, or simply a staff member being tricked into given vital information (via "social engineering" techniques). For example: One of the most forgotten holes is humans! A hacker could simply leave a USB thumbdisk infected with a worm virus out the front of the building, which a employee may pick up and plug into there work computer, thinking they have a free USB thumbdisk.

We have much experience in ethical hacking, and would be more then happy to test your security upon your request.

Information About Canberra

Canberra is the capital city of Australia and with a population of over 332,000, is Australia's largest inland city. The city is located at the northern end of the Australian Capital Territory, 280 kilometres southwest of Sydney, and 650 kilometres north-east of Melbourne.

The site of Canberra was selected for the location of the nation's capital in 1908 as a compromise between Sydney and Melbourne, the two largest cities. It is unusual among Australian cities as an entirely purpose-built, planned city.

Following an international contest for the city's design, a design by Chicago architects Walter Burley Griffin and Marion Mahony Griffin was selected and construction commenced in 1913.

The city's design was heavily influenced by the garden city movement and incorporates significant areas of natural vegetation that have earned Canberra the title "bush capital". Although the growth and development of Canberra were hindered by the World Wars and the Great Depression, it emerged as a thriving city after World War II.

As the seat of the government of Australia, Canberra is the site of Parliament House, the High Court of Australia and numerous government departments and agencies. It is also the location of many social and cultural institutions of national significance. The federal government contributes the largest percentage of Gross State Product and is the largest single employer in Canberra (although it is no longer the employer of the majority of working Canberrans, as was once the case).

Before European settlement, the area in which Canberra would eventually be constructed was seasonally inhabited by the Ngunnawal and Walgalu tribes. The Ngarigo lived south-east of the Canberra area, the Gundungurra to the north, the Yuin on the coast and the Wiradjuri to the west. Archaeological evidence from the Canberra region suggests human habitation of the area for at least 21,000 years. The word "Canberra" is derived from the name of the local Ngabri people dialect, one of the Ngunnawal family groups, from the word Kanbarra meaning "meeting place" in the old Ngunnawal language. The Ngunnawal name was apparently used as a reference to corroborees held during the seasonal migration of the Ngunawal people to feast on the Bogong moths that pass through the region each spring.

I found working with Luke from COLETEK to be very helpful and professional in helping the school get the most value from our budget, showing us all possible options so that we could work out the best fit for our campus.

After having difficulty getting contractors to quote on our job of setting up surveillance cameras over multiple factories on the same site we contacted COLETEK. They very helpful explaining how they would design and setup the system wirelessly and the pricing was also within our budget. The COLETEK team were very accommodating while installing the system ensuring minimal effect on our production team. We were so happy with the installation and system on our first site we also decided to upgrade the surveillance cameras on one of our other sites.

I was concerned with the security of my apartment when it was vacant. I contacted COLETEK and discussed the possibility of having security cameras installed with an email alert system incorporated that would advise me by email if someone entered the apartment, after getting the Internet activated, COLETEK suggested the equipment I should require and had it installed. I am more than happy with the result that was achieved, COLETEK has very good knowledge and understanding of all aspects of the requirements from the equipment I needed and also the IT side of things. I have no reservations in recommending COLETEK for this type of installation.

We had nine cameras and a storage system installed 4 years ago. The installation was fantastic with WiFi transmission from some areas the picture quality was unbelievable. The cameras are in a very harsh environment but never cause any issues. I would thoroughly recommend COLETEK Surveillance for your CCTV requirements.

Peter Finch
Mi-Feed Pty Ltd, Yandina

COLETEK installed at our home a surveillance system with 6 cameras and an intercom system with 2 door stations and 3 indoor monitors. The two systems were linked enabling the cameras at the door stations to function as additional security cameras and also allow remote access. The result was great with the added advantage of improving our wifi system. If you want a cost effective system done by professionals who know what they’re doing, are reliable and will be respectful of your home, you can not go wrong with COLETEK. Dealing with Luke was a very positive and pleasant experience.

I recently had a security camera system installed and would recommend COLETEK as being the provider of choice for this job. The whole process was stress free and the work was completed to a high standard, including leaving everything clean and tidy afterwards. In particular: any queries were answered quickly, an itemised estimate of costs provided, kept informed of arrival time on the day, complete set-up of the system including tuition on its operation, and everyone from the company was very friendly to deal with.

Thank you for installing the surveillance system at our home in the Northern Rivers.

COLETEK is a "can-do" business. Luke and his man was prompt, efficient and skilled at fitting the security system, and made easy work of setting up the software. He assisted me with all queries after the installation, and I was very happy with his work. His quality equipment has work flawlessly. His attitude was a welcome contrast to the various installers that I had had discussions with who only saw problems with our installation. Thanks to Luke there were none.

Luke displayed the currency of his technical knowledge and supplied quality products at reasonable prices. He listened to our needs and made recommendations that suited us that rather than any upsell. His team have been prompt, reliable and tidy in their work and courteous to deal with. After sales support has been good with Luke displaying a real solution focused approach to any technical issues that have arisen.
