Cyber IQ

Cyber Intelligence.  It’s no longer a matter of “if” your digital assets will be compromised, it’s a matter of “when”.  Today, we all must have a certain level of understanding of things that make us safe, strong and smart.  Here we focus on a group of “intelligences” that we call Cyber Intelligence, or Cyber IQ.

The Cyber IQ model is both a corporate and individual model based on three core concepts:

  1. Find Your Vulnerabilities
  2. Build Your Digital Fortress
  3. Maintain Your Digital Fortress

The Cyber IQ Team at the Holisec Group focuses on minimizing risk, saving time and money by preventing security breaches.

People feel safer knowing that their personal data is safe, and companies feel safer for the same reason.  When people feel safe, productivity rises, and so does loyalty.



Sadly, Cyber Intelligence is not taught in school. There is no “Identifying the Hacker 101” class or “Staying Away from The Bad Guys” workshop.  There is no “How to Trust” seminar.

This type of manipulation, called Social Engineering, is dangerous, destructive and responsible for the demise of relationships, companies, assets and dreams. Social Engineers take advantage of the people’s trust and twists it into a demoralizing situation.

Social Engineers may be manipulating in person or through email “phishing”, “spear phishing” or “whaling” attempts.  These are emails sent to a specific person to try to get them to click on an email that contains a malicious virus, malware or ransomware – where they hold your digital assets ransom for a fee.

We aim to put a stop to Social Engineering at work and at home.

Here’s what we do:

  1. Vulnerability Testing (Technology and Human)
  2. Penetration Testing
  3. Security Awareness
  4. (coming soon) Cyber Insurance
