The Project 

Oivan has been the trusted cybersecurity consultation partner for NHC since 2017, with more than 70 successful cybersecurity assessment and penetration testing projects delivered.

The cybersecurity assessment and penetration testing projects are normally conducted to check and verify the security posture of NHC applications and their components and integration points before they are deployed online for production. Oivan Cybersecurity experts apply rigorous testing methods using manual and automated tools to identify and validate any application security vulnerabilities or configuration weaknesses. Oivan experts follow world-class standards mainly from the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) foundation to identify, classify and report application security findings and recommendations. Common OWASP security projects we embrace are OWASP, Web Security Testing Guide (WSTG) and OWASP Top 10 Security Risks which covers Web Application, Mobile Applications, and APIs.

The value of Oivan Cybersecurity services and offerings are not limited to reliably identifying application security vulnerabilities. Our experts also engage with the application developers and business owners to ensure all stakeholders are aware of security recommendations and raise their awareness to bring security early enough during the application development lifecycle.
