Running an effective application security program can be a daunting task, especially if you've yet to reach the size to staff a full-fledged InfoSec department.
We can bootstrap your security program, provide a CISO to implement and oversee your security program, or assess and improve your current security program.
Get an overview of your current security posture and what can be improved, that's the goal of a security assessment. It's the map that helps you navigate the maze called application security. If you haven't recently performed a security assessment of your application, this is the activity to start with as it helps you prioritize all other activities.
The result of a security assessment is a scoring of your security practices and more importantly a list of suggested improvements. Our security assessment is based on OWASP SAMM, an industry standard model to analyze and improve your security posture.
Chief Information Security Officer as a service (vCISO)
The Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) is the person on your executive team who leads the Information Security (InfoSec) team. They create and oversee the implementation of the strategic security plan to protect its assets and technologies from threats. For companies that develop software, Application Security is a major part of a CISO's daily job.
Finding a good CISO can be difficult and expensive. Especially if you've yet to reach the size to staff a full-fledged InfoSec department. To help smaller companies meet their strategic security goals we can provide a highly trained professional to fill the CISO role, with full flexibility regarding time and expenses.
With certification you can prove to clients that the business' security practices are of a certain standard. There are many different types of certification. Some are more general, like ISO 27000, while others are industry specific, like PCI DSS for the payment industry. What all of them have in common is that you'll need a solid application security program to obtain them.
We can help you reach certification by assessing your security practices and improving them to the required level. Our expertise will help you implement the right security practices. This way you will not only reach certification but also improve your security in the process.
Risk management is the process of identifying factors that could negatively affect assets and implementing cost-effective solutions for managing or reducing risk. The risk management process drives the information security strategy and results in the implementation of security practices and policies.
During a risk assessment we examine the business and the environment in which it operates for threats and estimate the likelihood that they impact the business. We then propose countermeasures to reduce the risk to an acceptable level.
Secuma helps technology companies develop more secure applications. We encourage and guide the integration of security best practices in the entire Software Development Lifecycle, improving the security of your applications and stopping issues from becoming incidents.
