Growing security issues within the IT landscape
We’ve been fortunate to work with clients in the finance, retail and e-commerce sectors who are undergoing digital transformations from migrating from data centres to the Cloud or expanding the ‘as-is’ infrastructure utilising multiple Cloud environments. The growing trend we are currently seeing in the industry associated with digital security issues are:
Lack of resources with the right skillsets to undertake security assurance reviews
Appropriate budgeting to address technical debt relating to both functional and security fixes
Awareness of the need to protect and manage data appropriate to the required criteria outlined under EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and data regulations
In-sufficient security protection mechanisms in place that are managed using a dedicated centralised security centre
Maturing of security operations teams to enhance the capability to detect and mitigate against attacks
How do we address these issues? By helping our clients move to the left!
Here at Complete Cyber we have been working within the IT security field for the past five years with an approach that we wanted to be a consultancy that differed from many by offering a more tailored and specialist set of services to our clients. We do this by using the common approach of offering the mindset of trying to make clients start thinking to the left, whereby security is embedded from the beginning of any transformation programme.
The benefits of ‘moving to the left’ are all about engagement from the word go with any project or upgrade and allow security requirements to be defined and also assess potential security risks before any work has been undertaken. We specifically encourage this approach and have done so with many of our clients in previous and current engagements.
Moving to the left is also about education individuals from the executive board down to the developers writing code for business applications and there are many approaches here to begin changing the mindset to the left, by using some of tried and tested approaches we have applied:
Undertake a security incident exercise with board members to simulate readiness for a cyber attack
Undertake a workshop to do a basic threat model for developers or infrastructure architects on a simple design feature
Perform a gap assessment of an organisation’s infrastructure benchmarked against a set of security principles
At Complete Cyber, we live and breathe cyber security daily and this allows us to maintain and continually challenge our knowledge of cybers ecurity. We provide a number of services within the IT security sector that cover the following range of professional services:
Security Architecture Services:
We offer our security architects as a professional service to anyone needing technical evaluation of your IT infrastructure, Cloud systems or design solutions. Our team of architects possess a broad range of certifications ensuring we can offer experienced individuals or teams to support your technical security needs. We have built-in processes to ensure our architects provide formatted artefacts that ensure security risk is highlighted and modelled as part of a solution we offer.
Security Test Management Services:
Security test management is a complete end to end management of various security test procedures ranging from scoping of penetration tests using our CREST certified penetration testers, undertake ad-hoc or continuous and automatic vulnerability scanning to meet your compliance needs or undertake piecewise ethical hacking sessions to test your web, API or Mobile applications. Our approach is to assess your needs and provide guidance on what method may suit your requirements. We also ensure the process is managed by us delivering you with key information in terms of business risk.
Audit, Risk & Compliance:
Pertaining to an inventory or understanding what Assets an organisation possesses is often difficult, complex and hard to manage as part of a standard BAU lifecycle. Complete Cyber are an experienced consultancy that has worked with multiple organisations to determine the best way to assess and audit organisations to ISO 27001, CIS, Cloud Security Alliance, Cyber Essentials, ISA 62443 and PCI-DSS. We perform gap analysis reviews on security governance procedures and work to ensure organisations adopt governance, risk & compliance processes in the management of security risks.
SecDevOps and Application Security:
Building security into the software development lifecycle (SDL) is pivotal to ensuring vulnerabilities are mitigated from day zero and that an application conforms to best security practices. We offer services to any business wishing for us to consult on how best to design your applications whether this is mobile or web-based technology. We also offer a practical implementation on performing SecDevOps using our preferred approach to implementing security during continuous CI/CD pipeline deployments.
