Services CYBERSECURITY

Cybersecurity

A complete and fully informed approach to cybersecurity solutions is essential to the success and survivability of  businesses in today’s context of ever-evolving cyber hazards and threats. Informed by Human-Centric Cybersecurity (HCCS), we develop and deploy solutions that build organisational resilience that can meet and overcome the rising threat of cyber-attack.

Every business, big and small, needs to be prepared to deal with the changing face of cybersecurity. It’s not just about software, it’s about people. Training. Literacy. Our experts are armed and ready to deliver improvements to your cyber resilience in all these areas and more.

Cyberseucrity capabilities

There’s no part of an organisation Cybersecurity doesn’t touch. Every facet must contribute to the overall Cybersecurity posture and risk appetite of the business by incorporating practices that are relevant to the nuances of their domains. It takes interdisciplinary expertise to enable effective and efficient solutions.

Meet our full stack cybersecurity consultants

Whilst many Cybersecurity personnel come from an Infrastructure/IT background, there is a dire shortage of individuals with knowledge and experience spanning multiple disciplinary boundaries.

Our Full Stack Cybersecurity Experts can reinforce your existing capability by offering the broad, deep and cross-domain security expertise your organisation lacks, including:

With vision for and understanding of the bigger picture, our in-depth expertise covers the full range of Cybersecurity disciplines and all domains to which Cybersecurity must be applied. We also have the real world experience to go beyond theory and know how strategies play out in a practical sense, so all necessary measures we propose will align with your organisation’s risk appetite.

Cost-effective and easy to use, cloud-based solutions are an obvious and appealing choice for businesses.

Cybersecurity and the cloud

But, while adopting a cloud model (whether private, public or hybrid) reduces some risks and vulnerabilities, it also introduces new ones.

Say, for example, another of your cloud service provider’s customers has a legal hold applied to their infrastructure. Shared hardware may mean you suddenly find your data inaccessible.

To avoid these kinds of issues, 460degrees offers migration plans which include a full risk assessment and mitigation strategies. You’ll be fully informed of all vulnerabilities and risks to your information before moving your data and applications to the Cloud. You can also rest assured all critical business functions and information will be protected during and after the migration.

Human-centric cybersecurity (HCCS) is the ‘other half’ of the data security equation for which few of your competitors know of or pay attention to.

Human-centric cybersecurity protects businesses from cyber attacks

Nine out of ten cyber-attacks are due to human error. The best designed technology in the world can’t stop your staff putting their passwords on a sticky note on the side of their computer screen. It takes education and training to help them become the first line defence your business needs against cybersecurity breaches.

The good news is, the behavioural changes HCCS facilitate outlast any technology, making it the most durable, cost-effective way to keep your business data safer.

Our 460degree HCCS Experts leverage technology, behavioural science and specialised tools and techniques to shine a light through the gaps in your cybersecurity defences. By digging into the rich bodies of data your business has generated around your people, technology, culture and organisational structure, we spot any weaknesses and uncover valuable insights to help you achieve your cybersecurity goals.

Whether you need to meet regulatory or compliance obligations, build enhanced awareness of emerging cyber threats or address the specific challenges your business faces, or are seeking a unique competitive advantage, our cybersecurity Experts are ready to help.

Even beyond the obvious benefits around protecting your organisation’s valuable data, ensuring your cybersecurity meets the highest industry standards is simply good business sense.

Multidomain cybersecurity protects large companies

When your system slows down or crashes, so does your business continuity and productivity. That’s not just annoying, it’s expensive.

Balancing the Confidentiality, Integrity and availability of your multidomain cybersecurity systems is becoming increasingly difficult and complex. You need a layered defence to minimise weak spots where attackers slip through.

460degrees offers your business a depth of expertise across the entire technology landscape. With specialised tools and techniques, we’ll assess your existing layers of defence, current processes and technologies to make sure they’re as effective as possible against the increasing number of persistent and advanced threats.

Protecting the confidentiality, integrity and availability of your systems and people in the face of cyber-attacks requires a layered defence.

How confident are you that your defences will work as intended when you are under attack?

How can you be assured that your layered defences will work as expected when the time comes?

Our breach & attack simulation services put your cybersecurity to the test

Threat actors are skilled (and persistent) at finding even the tiniest chinks in your armour; psychological profiling, zero-day exploits and the reconnaissance for misconfigured systems are just some of the ways they can slip through the net.

The 460degrees Business Attack Simulation services are will stress-test the combination of defences you have in place and see how they stand up to a wide range of known threat vectors and attacks:

Breach attack simulations

We put your security, data loss and backup/restoration technology through its paces, performing safe attack simulations based on thousands of known cyber threats. Your results are mapped against the MITRE ATT&K framework and reported back along with recommended actions.

Human factors attack simulation

This is like a fire drill for your cybersecurity. We’ll assess both behaviours and role execution, observing your staff as they react to a simulated breach. Your full report will detail what we’ve observed, as well as steps you can take to improve the all-important ‘human element’ in your cyber defence strategy.

Process attack simulation

Strong processes (and compliance) support effective human response to a threat. We’ll identify any gaps and advise on any changes or improvements to be made.

When teams operate in siloes of experience and expertise, communication blocks can compromise the confidentiality, integrity and availability of your systems.

Maintain secure systems with our software development experts

While most cybersecurity professionals have experience in infrastructure cybersecurity, very few are effectively skilled in secure software development practices, making the timely development and maintenance of secure systems almost impossible.

As interdisciplinary experts, the 460degrees team grants your business access to the “full stack’ software security expertise with extensive real-world experience across a broad range of product delivery team sizes, technologies and industries.

Regardless of the development methodologies you use (such as Agile, SaFE, Lean, RAD, RUP, Waterfall and SDL) we ensure psychologically acceptable security practices are embedded into the software product from ideation through to decommissioning.

With a centralised delivery approach combined with distributed enablement of teams,  460degrees brings traceability between the  who, what, why and where changes are made to bring comprehensive visibility into your product delivery so nothing slips through the cracks.

Bottom line: we’ll work out what you need to achieve sustainable security of your systems and implement changes, without losing productivity or making life hard for your teams.

 

Putting your people at the centre of your cybersecurity is essential. But when your approach is chiefly reactive and unlinked to your overall risk management strategy, staff are left confused; it can be hard to get buy-in.

Cybersecurity and governance informs your employees

To be effective, your governance should be more than just words; it must be understood and supported by your team.

That why 460degrees works with your staff to co-develop your Enterprise Cybersecurity Strategy.

First we assess your cyber literacy and cyber maturity, evaluating compliance with the standards applicable to your needs (ASD Essential 8, ISO 27001 and NIST standards etc ) using automated assessment tools.

Then we work with you to develop your cybersecurity plan and policies. Our end-to-end cyber strategy ensures staff buy-in. We’ll also put your team to the test with our tailored ‘Cyber Gym’ program, to make sure your business remains resilient against persistent threats.

Finally, instant results and feedback are made available to the executive via an automated dashboard, providing instant value with minimal investment or the need for ongoing consultancy.
