Cybersecurity

Protecting intellectual property and valuable corporate assets is a significant task. A strong cybersecurity program requires strategic investment across several key areas, and adds significant value across your entire organization.

Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC)

GRC is a coordinated strategy for managing the broader issues surrounding corporate governance, enterprise risk management (ERM), and corporate compliance with regards to regulatory requirements. GRC provides the checks and balances that serve as the foundation and framework for a healthy and mature cybersecurity program.

Risk Assessment

Every security program brings a unique set of variables, circumstances, and pre-existing processes that must be accounted for when constructing a GRC program. Risk assessments are the first step toward identifying potential gaps and security flaws within the program, and provide a detailed summary of the key risks and actions required for mitigation. Risk assessments are an essential part of the overall GRC planning and implementation process.

Framework Planning and Implementation

Cybersecurity Frameworks, such as NIST, ISO-27001, and SOX provide a collection of industry-standard processes and tools for handling specific aspects of security within an organization. Once a framework and corresponding tools have been chosen for implementation, a roadmap is created for implementing and administering the new processes across the organization. Framework planning and implementation is where the real effort begins, and provides a real and tangible ROI in terms of security.

Auditing and Compliance

Auditing and compliance is the final step to ensuring the on-going adherence to your security frameworks. Some steps can be automated, while others must be done manually. Either way, a compliant GRC program increases your overall security, and reduces your immediate threat-level by ensuring that all systems and processes across your organization are functioning the way they should.

Identity and Access Management (IAM)

IAM is one of the most important and fundamental security controls available. Effective identity controls not only provide security but also when implemented correctly, streamline workflows, reduce user frustration, and increase productivity.

Identity Lifecycle Management

Identity Lifecycle Management (ILM) focuses on the technologies and business processes used to manage the identification, access, and governance of identities within a network.

Access Management

Access Management grants authorized users the right to use a service, while preventing access to non-authorized users. A robust identity plan accounts for all possibilities.

Single Sign-On and Federation

Single Sign-On allows the user to access multiple applications with the same set of credentials, while a federated network gives the user the ability to access external networks outside of the organization in a secure manner. These services often provide a significant benefit to an organization’s overall user-experience, and can even enhance top-line revenue generation.

Compliance Reporting

A solid cybersecurity platform is built on the policies and standards set by the organization’s leadership. Routine compliance reporting helps to ensure a stable and healthy security platform, and reduces the risk of a security incident through regular, routine inspection.

Identity-Driven Networking

Identity-Driven Networking (IDN) deals with applying network access controls to network devices based on the identity of the individual or group. This allows for a dynamic user experience that can uniquely respond to a user’s present situation and/or context. IDN is a powerful way to create dynamic, personal experiences.

Multifactor Authentication

Multifactor authentication (MFA) is a security system that requires two or more methods of authentication to verify a user’s identity. MFA is a proactive measure for combating the rise in security threats, like phishing, malware, and identity theft.

Network and Infrastructure Security (NIS)

Network protocols within a system must be physically secured to ensure a consistent and secure exchange of information within a network. NIS serves as the first line of defense for establishing a secured network, and directly impacts the overall performance and stability of a network.

Network Design and Architecture

A well-designed network mitigates risk and minimizes unnecessary points of exposure. This provides a two-fold benefit in that inter-connectivity and collaboration are promoted, while the overall level of cybersecurity is enhanced due to having stronger barriers.

Network Automation

Manual operations are prone to error, and can potentially introduce unsecured access points that attackers could exploit. Network automation removes the human error component by automating each step of the operation to ensure that every operation is opened securely, sustained securely, and then closed securely.

Analytics Integration

We have the ability to monitor information in real-time, and network security is no exception. Network analytics not only help identify areas for operational improvement, but allows us to forecast and identify potential security threats before they happen. Analytics integration is an essential piece of the cybersecurity monitoring suite.

Advanced Persistent Threats (APT1) Detection

Advanced Persistent Threats (APT1) are network attacks where an unauthorized person gains access to a network and stays there undetected for long periods of time. Active and passive monitoring helps to ensure your system is safe from these types of intrusions, and reduces your overall risk.

API Gateway

An application program interface (API) allows two or more software programs to communicate with each other to achieve greater functionality for a product. An API Gateway accepts and processes concurrent API calls, manages traffic, authorizes end users, and monitors overall performance. If you’re business deals with APIs, an API Gateway can be a great investment.

Multifactor Authentication

Multifactor authentication (MFA) is a security system that requires two or more methods of authentication to verify a user’s identity. MFA is a proactive measure for combating the rise in security threats, like phishing, malware, and identity theft.

Penetration Testing (PEN)

How secure is your environment? Penetration testing evaluates a system’s capabilities, and looks for vulnerabilities and weaknesses an attacker could exploit. Don’t just assume things are fine. Know for certain.

Vulnerability Assessment

The first thing everyone should do when assessing the strength of a system, network, or application is to perform a thorough evaluation of the current infrastructure and its capabilities. The output from this analysis is a detailed vulnerability report that clearly identifies potential risks and security flaws to address. This report is usually stack-ranked by threat-level, which will help you plan your remediation roadmap.

Web/LOB Application Testing

Websites and line-of-business (LOB) applications are software that businesses use to generate revenue and directly engage their users. These applications pose a significant risk to the business if they go down, and due to their public exposure, it is becoming common-practice to include penetration testing as part of the Quality Assurance gate. This helps to produce stable applications that are protected against common hacking techniques.

Physical Penetration Testing

Physical penetration testing exposes areas where a malicious actor could gain physical access to your IT facilities by finding and exploiting these vulnerabilities within your organization’s physical security program. Physical penetration testing helps reduce the risk of unauthorized access to sensitive facilities and systems, while strengthening points of weakness along the way.

Network Penetration Testing

How secure is your network infrastructure? Is your information encrypted in-transit and at-rest? Are there any weak points within the system that could be exploited through hacking? These are the questions addressed through network testing.

Social Engineering Penetration Testing

Social engineering penetration testing is designed to test employees’ adherence to the security policies and practices defined by management. Testing should provide a company with information about how easy it is for an external party to convince an employee to break security rules, and divulge or provide access to sensitive information.
