Data Protection & Privacy

In the modern corporate landscape, data plays a central role. Beyond confidentiality, the focus now shifts to data availability and integrity, becoming the forefront of security concerns. Personal identifiable information (PII) holds significant black-market and ransom value. To address breaches and misuse, user demand for transparency and control grows, while regulatory compliance becomes increasingly intricate. 

Core Topics:

  • Data Protection Regulations

Identity & Access Management

Organizations, even prior to the pandemic, were expanding globally, adopting distributed teams and remote work. COVID-19 further eroded the traditional enterprise perimeter, making it nearly obsolete. As a result, robust Identity & Access Management (IAM) is essential. Zero trust architectures enable granular control without relying on specific perimeter access enforcement points, meeting the evolving needs of modern organizations. 

Core Topics:

  • Identity Management
  • Digital Identities & Authentication
  • Access Control (SSO, MFA, PSK, Biometrics, Privileged Access)
  • Identity Protection

Resilience & Recovery

Cyber resilience empowers organizations to achieve business acceleration through proactive preparation, response, and recovery from cyber threats. It enables adaptability in the face of various crises, challenges, and adversities, aiming to ensure organizational thriving despite adverse conditions. Cyber recovery focuses on data restoration post-attack or breach, allowing uninterrupted operations through comprehensive recovery plans. 

Core Topics:

  • Information Security Policies
  • Vulnerability Monitoring & Security Monitoring
  • Incident Response Management
  • Business Continuity Management

Cyber Compliance

Cybersecurity compliance involves implementing pre-defined security measures and controls to manage organizational risks and ensure data confidentiality. It emphasizes adhering to regulatory authorities, laws, and industry-specific controls for data management and protection. By following a systematic risk governance approach, companies demonstrate reliability and meet industry standards, instilling confidence in customers regarding service delivery. 

Core Topics:

  • Risk Governance
  • Regulatory Cybersecurity Compliance Framework
  • Data Breach Penalty Prevention
  • Incident Response Plan

Web3 Security

The metaverse is gaining prominence in enterprises for enhancing engagement and user experience. However, it brings challenges such as identity spoofing, account hacking, and avatar takeover. VR and AR headsets are vulnerable to hacks. Location spoofing and device manipulation can lead to identity hijacking. The absence of metaverse regulations and privacy invasion for personalized experiences pose additional concerns.
