The Silicon Review
“There’s no silver bullet solution with cyber security, a layered defense is the only viable defense.” – James Scott
Founded half a decade ago on the principle that cybersecurity and effective defense is entirely possible if you use common sense, apply a system of measurement, and know what you’re trying to protect, GreyCastle Security is a leading services provider dedicated exclusively to cybersecurity and the practical management of its risks.
The team at GreyCastle Security admits that the traditional security has taught them many lessons, none more important than a sense of urgency. Few others like Target, Home Depot and Sony all had racks full of technology, and they were still compromised, A breach can be a career-ending event for company executives and people are the biggest risk you face, inside and outside the company walls.

Penetration Testing- A Penetration Test often called “red teaming” or a “red team exercise” is the practice of simulating as closely as possible the effect that cyber threats could have on your business. It is a simulation of a real-world attack on targeted assets using the same tools and techniques that modern criminals use. This is done by understanding who your threats are, their capabilities, motivations and targets and “hacking” your systems the way they are.
