Forward Security Inc. was engaged by a Canadian outdoor retailer to identify and address security vulnerabilities within their website, particularly following a switch to a new hosting platform. The project involved a two-stage security risk assessment for both the application and the cloud in the AWS environment. The Forward Security team, comprising of 2-3 members, worked closely with the client's web team to uncover and rectify security issues. The engagement, which cost the client approximately $33,000, took place from August to November 2020, during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic.

In another project, Forward Security Inc. provided cybersecurity services to Square One Insurance, an online home insurance provider. The project aimed to review all of the company's systems, software, and networks for potential vulnerabilities and to prioritize necessary security measures. The Forward Security team, which included their chief security officer and two application security consultants, conducted both manual and automated penetration tests remotely. The project, which cost around $31,000 USD, ran from July to October 2021.

Lastly, Forward Security Inc. was hired by Safe Software, a data integration platform specializing in spatial data, to conduct application penetration testing and identify any security holes or backdoor access. The project involved analyzing the software's vulnerabilities and providing a detailed list of these issues, complete with instructions on how to reproduce each one. Forward Security also offered off-site services and training workshops for the client's development team. The engagement, which cost approximately $20,000 USD, began in June 2021 and concluded in October of the same year.
