Uncover Hidden Vulnerabilities

WCK’s Intelligent Risk Engine performs end-to-end analysis of interdependencies among IT components, business processes, threats and controls. By identifying loopholes and uncovering hidden vulnerabilities, this unique analysis uncovers hidden risks and helps block malicious activities before they occur, which reduces the organization’s exposure.

Critical Infrastructure Security Risk Management

WCK GRC was designed to analyze and manage the threats and risks affecting critical infrastructure including embedded systems, SCADA components and other operational elements.  The platform provides holistic security coverage of cyber, physical and embedded system risks for critical infrastructure sectors such as utilities, energy, chemical, oil, gas and transportation.

Physical Security Risk Management

Typically, organizations manage physical security and IT security functions separately. Physical access to critical facilities can pose additional critical security risks that should be managed alongside other security risks. WCK’s holistic security offers integrated risk management that incorporates risk assessment of IT and cyber security, embedded systems and physical security.
