CecureData is an information security service organization
that specializes in helping organizations address their data protection and compliance needs.
Our clients engage us to provide effective solutions and improve their overall cyber risk posture – delivered by industry subject matter experts.
Continuous compliance monitoring of information systems has long been a policy goal for improving the security posture of enterprise networks.
Achieving continuous compliance monitoring requires a balanced combination of processes, people, and technologies to detect and report vulnerabilities in the IT environment.
We’re so passionate about security, that others call us
experts in these areas:
CecureData offers a full range of audit and assessment services to aid organizations with a variety of needs. We believe in the function of value-added auditing. This means that when one of our certified, credentialed experts evaluates an operation or facility, we point out real and potential weaknesses or vulnerabilities.
CecureData’s cloud risk assessment services your current cloud programs, identify threats and address security gaps. When you move systems and data to the cloud, security responsibilities become shared between your organization and the cloud service provider. Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) providers, such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), are responsible for securing the underlying infrastructure that supports the cloud, and you are responsible for anything you put on the cloud or connect to the cloud.
CecureData’s cloud security assessment and advisory services are designed to help your organization navigate the unique security responsibilities associated with operating in today’s public cloud environments.
Modern organizations deploy a plethora of web applications, accessible from any location. These are an easy target for hackers, who can exploit them and gain access to back-end corporate databases.
CecureData will work with you to rank threat priorities. Our web application scanning offers complete coverage, outstanding accuracy and expert advice.
The use of third parties is nothing new — companies have worked with suppliers, outsourcers, licensees, agents, and the like for years. What has changed, however, is the frequency and scale of third-party use and the regulatory focus on how organizations are managing third parties to address the inherent risks.
Our third-party risk assessment services include:
- Program assessment, evaluating current programs to identify gaps and provide recommendations for improvement while also evaluating current program maturity levels. Program development, with services to assist in building new third-party risk assessment programs or refining existing programs.
- Security risk assessment services, determining whether vendors meet industry and corporate security standards through assessment options that range from remote questionnaire-based assessments to on-site, in-depth assessments aligned to current methodology or to methodology developed with CecureData.
Regulations such as the Notifiable Data Breaches Scheme (NDB) and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) are lifting the standard on security measures. CecureData has deep experience in supporting organizations to address their data privacy challenges. Our specialists can adopt a structured and flexible approach to meet the needs of your business.
As the outsourcing of business functions has become more popular, businesses are sharing increasing amounts of data with external service providers. Often, these service providers must use personal information or highly confidential data supplied to them by their customers to provide the relevant services. The customer acting as a service recipient can face significant financial and reputational harm due to a security breach or the unauthorized use of shared personal information.
CecureData can help. We have deep expertise in this space across multiple industries to ensure that client’s data is contractually protected. We will work alongside your procurement team and counsel to develop appropriate information security clauses that align with your business needs. It doesn’t end there, we also can play a key role during contract negotiations. Quite often vendors show up to contract discussions with their cyber weights such as CISOs and Data Protection Officers. CecureData can help you level the playing field by leveraging our expertise across multiple industries, understanding of data protection, and relevant laws and regulations.
As with any business, there are barriers to entry and minimum requirements to contract with the Department of Defense (DoD). In recent years, the list of these requirements has increased with additional scrutiny being placed on cybersecurity, specifically around securing systems that process, store, and/or transmit Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI), namely he Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) 252.204-7012 and NIST 800-171. These flow-down requirements can be complicated and convoluted, but our cybersecurity practitioners have the technical and procedural capabilities to sort through the compliance requirements, help you define your accreditation boundary, document your level of adherence to the controls, and help take the guesswork out of implementing NIST 800-171.
CecureData provides white-glove service to get you compliant with DFARS/NIST SP 800-171 requirements so you can move ahead at full speed.
