Chat and Porn Assessments

ERT (Emergency Response Tool) for business and education can help employers, managers, and administrators deal with the problem of pornography in the workplace or within a school. Simply asking a HR professional, manager or IT admin to investigate a suspect computer without safety tools is no longer acceptable and potentially creates additional liabilities.

By using safety tools, the metadata information window, and reports to make a determination on the nature of a file without ever having to see the entire image or exploiting the user to explicit material.

Highly mobile and completely cross-platform compatible, ERT is the ultimate tool for performing first-response, triage, and consent searches. You can protect yourself, your employees and your company from potential legal liabilities, while boosting productivity and conserving the use of important company resources (computers, bandwidth, etc.) The initial installation, configuration, scans and reports will be done by Cyanre where after the application will be the property of the client.

Policy Assessments

Performing a policy assessment is the first step in tackling the review of an existing policy portfolio, or even the development of a new single policy. Our IT Policy Assessment will allow you to:

  • Create a centralized IT policy inventory.
  • Review individual IT policies against quality criteria.
  • Assess the gap between the current and target state of the policy portfolio.
  • Evaluate and prioritize the work effort required to fill the gap.
  • Measure the impact that policy changes will have on the enterprise.
  • Identify gaps in your policy portfolio and develop a shortlist of important policies that need to be amended or created from scratch.

Spyware and Malware Assessments

We deliver a comprehensive anti-malware IT security assessment of your IT environment. We map a customer’s malware/virus exposures and threats and define it within a customer’s policies, processes, procedures, networks, technology and systems. This gives the customer the benefit of an external anti-malware review of their environment, which analyses and measures their level of virus security, versus industry standards and best practices. This high-level evaluation will provide a representative list of vulnerabilities, risks, and requirements and related recommendations.


The Cyanre team assists clients to evaluate their current cyber security environment and structure cyber defenses based on security standards inline with international requirements.
