"Information is the oxygen of the modern age. It seeps through the walls topped by barbed wire, it wafts across the electrified borders."
Building an Information Security system and infrastructure requires knowledge of your current state and weaknesses as well as management of the entire process so the end result is an expertly built and executed environment providing logical controls in compliance with the topics discussed in the KNOW and GOVERN sections of this website.
The security structure is not a mere integration compilation of hardware and software components with some network engineering on top - it's a synergistic organism that evolves to face the challenges of the threat landscape.
There are numerous
security problems in today’s information systems, mainly due to the fact that a lot of today’s information systems were not initially built with security requirements in mind.
There are also many protection tools, which are designed to protect information systems from malicious activities, more or less efficiently. However, even the best protection systems have their vulnerabilities. That is why, one must approach the security building process applying the "layered defenses" concept (AKA Defense-in-depth). The concept implies the use of multiple controls to protect a given asset. Any single security control may fail, but by deploying multiple controls, one improves the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data.
DATA LEAK PREVENTION is necessary because unauthorized diversion of data can cause significant damage to the organization.
SECURITY INFORMATION & EVENT MANAGEMENT - collection, storage and analysis of logs.
DDoS MITIGATION - today, no business is safe from DDoS. Procuring mitigation will keep your business online.
CORPORATE ANTIVIRUS SYSTEM - centrally-managed, enterprise grade antivirus systems to suit the needs of an enterprise network are among the most commonly used endpoint protection measures.
INTRUSION DETECTION AND PROVENTION SYSTEMS - having the ability to detect and protect against malicious actions is critical to building an adequate defense against today's evolving threat landscape.
