  • Part 1


    Estacio was very vulnerable regarding their web and app applications; they had suffered some hacker attacks withing very delicate and confidential info (ex: in our POC we were able to demonstrate that students’ grades were accessible, without no level of security).

    The most pain was stopping the team and going after the problems, not being prepare to what expect and leaving the whole line of business with the sense that their information was not protected.

    All this situation generated extra costs, including additional overtime charges.

  • Part 2
