The Silicon Review
Security engineering is the process of incorporating security controls into the information system so that they become an integral part of the system’s operational capabilities. It is similar to other systems engineering activities in that its primary motivation is to support the delivery of engineering solutions that satisfy pre-defined functional and user requirements, but it has the added dimension of preventing misuse and malicious behavior. Those constraints and restrictions are often asserted as a security policy. In one form or another, security engineering has existed as an informal field of study for several centuries. For example, the fields of locksmithing and security printing have been around for many years. True Digital Security is the trusted name in Security Engineered Solutions from the heart of America.
Imagine spending thousands of dollars and weeks of time on a PCI penetration test, only to find out come audit time that the test does not meet PCI requirements. This compliance failure can mean monetary penalties, lost time dealing with remediation, and even higher liability burdens. Imagine you get breached through a vulnerability you knew about. A penetration test provider had identified the flaw, but the report was overly technical, so your executive leadership did not understand the underlying risk. Your job and reputation are suddenly on the line. With TRUE's Boardroom-Ready and Audit-Ready Penetration Tests, you can sleep easy knowing your penetration test will stand up to an audit and executive leadership will understand the importance of taking action on the findings. Say goodbye to penetration test providers who don't understand your compliance requirements and aren't invested in your long-term success. With TRUE's free Penetration Test Buyer's Guide, you can easily weed out the pretenders from the providers who truly understand your challenges and unique threats and are ready to partner with you.
Managed detection & response
TrueMDR combines behavior-based detection with trained security analysts and advanced threat feeds for effective response. Most attacks enter through an endpoint. They begin small, navigating around security layers and spreading through your network from there. This could be as simple as a malicious file that unleashes ransomware when clicked, or as complex as Business Email Compromise. That's why so many organizations have added a layer of detection and response for their endpoints, to catch attacks at the point of entry. TrueMDR is similar to and often augments Managed SIEM, pushing defense out to the endpoints.
Despite widespread awareness and effort, unpatched vulnerabilities are still among the leading causes for breaches. Most organizations routinely perform internal and external vulnerability scanning, meet regularly with their teams to document remediation progress, and manage reporting. So, why do most organizations find themselves going from report-to-report with the exact same vulnerabilities? The fact is, there are a number of key challenges inherent to the vulnerability management that keep IT teams from being able to fully remediate and harden their networks. IT teams are stretched more thinly than ever before, managing sprawling networks that have been maxed out to support flexible remote connectivity for people to work from home, and with market changes, hiring additional team members to manage growing networks may not be in the cards. Most IT teams can’t dedicate a single person to a single tool or technology. However, addressing vulnerabilities in the more nuanced, complex systems on your network–like 3rd party software or firewalls, requires specialized knowledge. Utilizing the multiple tools, scanners, and disparate reporting that are required to cover all of your environment means your teams will spend hours every month sorting through all of the data and transferring it to updated spreadsheets–which means less time dedicated to remediation.
