Our Approach To Cyber Security

The motto of all Scouts is to "Be Prepared".  This is our philosophy too when it comes to Cyber Security.

In a world that is changing fast with the increasing efforts, frequency and complexity of security threats, it is key that businesses are 'proactive' not 'reactive' when it comes to their online business.

Frequently Asked Questions


Pro-active Cyber Security involves thinking, acting, testing and analysing the threat environment. Our team's job is to mitigate any Advanced Persistent Threats and keep out Bad Actors.

In our opinion, the current top 5 Cyber Security threats are:

  • Phishing Attacks
  • Ransomware
  • Internet Of Things (IOT)
  • Website and App Malware
  • Remote Access Fraud

All five of these threats have increased massively and continuously since the beginning of 2020.  

This is a bit of a tricky question because the answer is both Yes and No.

A freshly installed WordPress site is generally secure if the underlying host and servers are secure as well. However, once a site has been developed and has its new theme and plugins installed that changes everything.

In the current active threat environment, all WordPress sites must be hardened and maintained by Web Security specialists if they are to remain secure. If they aren't hardened and regularly maintained it quickly becomes a matter of 'when' your site will get hacked not 'if'. 

Encipher has a Red Team which in simple terms is best described as a team of "ethical hackers". 

Penetration Testing (aka pen testing) is when our Red Team is authorised by the relevant stakeholders to attempt to break into a given set of resources including everything from websites to WiFi networks.

Pen testers typically use professional or custom developed hacking tools to discover and report back any vulnerabilities that they find.

Client Testimonials

Strategic Psychology

We are a Canberra-based psychology practice of over 20 staff and consider ourselves quite tech-savvy. My  internal IT guy suggested to “bring in these computer nerds [Encipher] and see if they could break into our system”. We use premium—and expensive—Wordpress hosting plus secure file storage so I thought “Okay, let them try”.

Well, the Encipher team found our vulnerability: our staff clicking on phishing emails! I thought we had all the tech bases covered but didn’t consider the human aspect. Happy to report we implemented a internal ‘human’ control system to keep our data safe.

Encipher conducted some pen testing on our website and found several vulnerabilities. They were quick and efficient and even provided guidance on remediation. 
I was pleasantly surprised how affordable the service was. It was well worthwhile getting them involved.
