OUR STORY


PROTECTION IN THE PACK

Wolves belong to family groups called packs, usually consisting of eight to fifteen members. Within the pack, each member has a particular set of skills and responsibilities, which are executed with purpose and precision.

CASE STUDY: HOW REINTRODUCING WOLVES HELPED SAVE
A NATIONAL PARK 

Our company name is inspired by what these amazing animals are able to achieve through collaboration - a lesson us humans can definitely learn from.

Join the pack and let's help make our communities a safer place!

Environmental Analysis

Before wolves go in for the kill, they spend a considerable amount of time studying their prey. Wolves are masters at understanding environmental conditions and making the best strategic decisions based on the intelligence they have gathered.

Wolfpack has developed a comprehensive range of health checks that combines all key technology, people and business requirements and thereafter provide a tailored strategy and roadmap for each customer. A one-size-fits-all approach does not work.



Built for the Kill

Wolves will defend their territory and work together to fend off much larger predators. Although not as physically strong as other predators in their habitat, wolves hunt in packs to kill prey that are both larger and stronger than each individual wolf. Teamwork allows the pack to target larger prey that a lone wolf would fail to kill.

A true partnership model is one that leverages the strengths of internal resources, trusted outside specialists and industry or global collaboration initiatives. This is pivotal to provide assurance that the required risk management, threat intelligence, monitoring, incident management and business resilience building blocks are in place to support organisational requirements.



The Howl of the Wolf

The wolf howl is a distinct call to action for all members in the pack. Howling helps pack members to communicate in thickly forested areas or over vast distances and to summon members when they are attacked. Wolves will also howl for communal reasons. Some scientists speculate that such group sessions strengthen the wolves' social bonds and camaraderie - similar to community singing among humans.

No single country, government or organisation can effectively protect themselves against the vast barrage of cyber threats. Wolfpack's underpinning culture has been forged through national and industry community initiatives and is committed to the improvement of cyber collaboration and safety within the African continent and beyond.



CHALLENGES WE ENJOY SINKING OUR TEETH INTO:

BUSINESS

"My security programme is not taken seriously by the business"

  • weak commitment from exco / business areas
  • Insufficient budget to Manage Risk
  • outstanding & repeat audit findings
  • social media risks not effectively managed
  • cyber crisis capability Lacking
  • overall business resilience maturity is low

PEOPLE

"We are battling to manage our internal people risks"

  • increased likelihood of successful human layer attacks
  •  management / support team do not realise the impact of cyber threats
  •  Time is short - we need a training programme for our specific risks
  • How do we budget for staff awareness training
  • Good security resources Are Hard To Find

TECHNOLOGY

"Our technology environment is too complex to secure"

  • HELP - Where do We start?
  • we have many systems to protect - some belong to external stakeholders including a mix of hybrid cloud options
  • our IT / network environment is poorly documented and diagrams are outdated - we require more structure
  • we lack configuration / hardening standardisation
  • we are not doing the basics properly - patching, change, log management etc
