Out with the Old: A Security Resources Review
Following a merger, we helped a global financial firm review their security technology resources across all their capability areas. We looked for security tools and technologies that were redundant as a result of the merger.
We developed a scorecard to look at the effectiveness and maturity of each tool and technology. We also reviewed data segregation within the client’s internal network, as well as its external perimeter hardening and defense. We also looked at their network access control systems, as well as their management practices and procedures.
In the end, we were able to remove redundant processes and technology, which allowed their cyber capabilities to improve. As a result, they were able to sustain their cyber program within their existing budget without any increase in risk.
