Cyber & Information Security
It is essential that CIOs, CISOs and business leaders align a security program not only to mitigate risks, but to help empower business to accelerate growth. Cybersecurity and information security are two terms often used interchangeably; however, they are not the same. We help customers to design and implement highly resilient and efficient security programs. We consolidate security tools and processes, uplift the maturity level of existing security programs, support end-to-end transparency, and ease the design and transition to a new security operating model. While the value of the data is the biggest concern of leaders, in information security, the primary concern is protecting the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of the data. The primary concern is protecting unauthorized access to data. It is important to understand why data is left unprotected and can damage your organization. Developing a security framework with proper controls to prevent unauthorized access, will help keep your data safe & protect your assets. With our cybersecurity framework, we developed a proven methodology based around three components: business, threats, and capabilities. The methodology enables organizations to make informed, strategic decisions about where to invest in their cybersecurity capabilities when they understand what they need to protect and their level of exposure to different threats.

Cloud security is becoming more and more important. Cloud services consist of many systems and components that must be perfectly synchronized for users to realize the full potential of the cloud. Cloud providers are faced with the major challenge of offering their customers a high level of technical development and ease of use, while ensuring a high level of information security. We help our clients integrate cloud services into their existing IT landscape, to assign and revoke access rights, and create backup strategies, optimize the interaction of policies, processes, and technical specifications.
Penetration testing, also called pen testing or ethical hacking, is the practice of testing a computer system, network, mobile or web application to uncover security vulnerabilities that an attacker could exploit. Our penetration testers are ready to perform manual Penetration tests, as well automated scans of your digital landscape, for exploitable vulnerabilities. These tests and Scans can be customized to accommodate each individual customers requirements or risk appetite. We can also help your company launch bug bounties that support your quality assurance efforts by delivering real-world feedback about the security of your products.
e2 Security developed a closed-loop security methodology Vulnerability Management 360 – consisting of vulnerability scans and penetration testing at regular intervals. The Vulnerability Management Process is the core process to identify common vulnerabilities and exposures. In addition to automated scans with selected third-party solutions, we develop and execute regular manual probes focusing on the identification of potential vulnerabilities which cannot be identified by automated processes.
Organizations today still struggle to fully understand the critical importance of cybersecurity and privacy protection to their business. Our tailored Security Maturity Uplift program addresses this concern. We developed a modular and transparent service approach to continuously uplift the security maturity level for select products and applications. Our approach is founded on the latest developments from established standards like the Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) and National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).
With increased visibility into security gaps and security processes, pressure on IT organizations is growing. For companies, this translates into a need to exhibit greater security transparency. But transparency across an entire security organization requires trust and collaboration among functional organized departments, which can be difficult to achieve. Holistic visibility into security processes makes it easier to see problems and collaborate on solutions. Despite the advances in digitalization, end-to-end visibility and transparency cannot be enabled in one step. Rather, they must happen incrementally, the result of prioritized efforts.
In 2020, organizations across many industries faced numerous security challenges as the nature of work suddenly and unexpectedly shifted. CISOs were forced to rapidly pivot their security strategies across the infrastructure, from the endpoint, enterprise data center, WAN, or cloud, and make real-time decisions that would impact their organization in 2021 and beyond.

Be prepared for your company’s biggest day. Mergers and acquisitions always come with a whirlwind of excitement. But as an executive in charge of managing such a monumental task, you need to take stock of your M&A readiness now before a potential deal is considered and not in the heat of the moment. Cybersecurity is often not considered in M&A projects from the beginning.
