Organizations today face a range of complex issues managing their security program. A lack of standardized and integrated tools—or challenges managing them—can compromise information protection efforts. An organization may depend too heavily on their security team to perform a large number of manual and repetitive tasks. Discrepancies may exist between organizational requirements and implemented solutions. Security teams may experience difficulty maintaining accurate asset inventory within their boundary-less network. They may also have trouble managing asset inventory and accurate configuration management database information. Internal security teams may also struggle with secure baseline deployment and monitoring for compliance within the baselines. For an organization’s leadership, all of these challenges can add up to lowered confidence in the effectiveness of their overall security program.
RSM understands the complex security challenges you face. Our specialists are industry-leading innovators in security engineering and operations with extensive experience reducing the impact of security incidents and generating greater value from security operating costs. Using automation, orchestration and machine-learning capabilities, we’ll reduce the mean time to respond to incidents while accurately mitigating security risks. We’ll effectively balance securing your constantly evolving technology environment with the magnitude of identities operating inside of it, including third parties. Our consultative approach to client service and our comprehensive solutions combine flexibility, responsiveness, customization and cost-effectiveness to enhance your overall security and compliance posture for optimal results.
Understanding the assets within your technology landscape is foundational to effectively implementing continuous active service reduction (ASR) capabilities. Knowledge of which assets support mission-critical systems or store valuable business information helps an organization focus efforts while triaging incidents and better isolates the impact of those events. Maintaining a robust asset inventory is a difficult and tedious task that can be challenging to execute without the help of IT asset management and configuration management database technologies. A well-defined risk-based classification scheme is necessary to effectively prioritize protection and recovery efforts.
RSM’s asset management specialists help organizations discover, classify and continually manage their IT asset inventories to support more effective ASR activities. Our team will work with you in areas such as:
The hybrid work environment comes with multiple employee-owned devices and disparate collaboration technologies. This has increased the importance of effectively managing a myriad of devices not typically seen within the four walls of a traditional corporate office. Defining an approach to device management that factors in the modern workplace is an evolving challenge as corporate technologies struggle to keep pace with business innovation. Effectively deploying and managing endpoint technologies are critical activities to securing the access edge. Distilling down the abundance of information into meaningful insights allows an organization to secure its technology landscape more
RSM’s endpoint specialists help organizations effectively deploy and maintain endpoint protection, detection and response technologies as well as develop more impactful insights from the heightened visibility at the perimeter. Our team will help you with:
The ongoing introduction of new platforms to your technology landscape brings with it additional attack vectors and risks to manage. As well, increased scrutiny by regulatory and standards bodies around the secure deployment of technologies in an organization’s environment necessitates the need for strong secure configuration management. An organization’s ability to continuously monitoring compliance with secure configuration baselines, recognize deviations timing and respond quickly with the appropriate mitigation is a necessity.
RSM’s security engineers help organizations define secure configuration baselines that help achieve regulatory compliance obligations through security as well as deploy configuration management tools to assist with the ongoing maintenance and monitoring. Our team will work with you on:
Cloud adoption is rapidly accelerating the need for organizations to operate with a “shift-left” mentality. Disjointed development processes allow for introduction of vulnerabilities at various steps within the development cycle. Far too often security is a costly and ineffective afterthought. Including the relevant security team members early in the system requirements and design phase and adopting a SecDevOps approach to development helps ensure solutions are deployed in a secure and supportable manner. Ongoing involvement will help the organization adapt to design changes and address newly identified threats as they arise.
Our application security specialists help organizations at each step along the development life cycle. We have the comprehensive experience required for operating your SecDevOps function in a variety of delivery models. Our team will help you with:
The security architecture team defines the protection mechanisms that align to an organization’s technology environment. Security engineering is tasked with identifying the right tools that meet architecture requirements, implementing those technologies and continuing to manage their ongoing administration. Implementation often requires highly specialized and costly skillsets, typically necessary only for a short period of time, which makes engaging the right partner the best decision for the organization. The transfer to ongoing operations requires valuable members of your security team to focus on lower value, repetitive tasks. Making the decision to work with a managed security service provider can help realign internal resources to more value-generating activities.
RSM’s implementation specialists focus on helping clients identify the technologies that align to their architectures, deploy those protection mechanisms and help organizations transfer to successful operations. Our team will work with you on:
The complexity of today’s technology environments and operating in a highly connected world drastically expands an organization’s attack surface. Continually monitoring your environment for new or unknown assets and insecure access points requires constant vigilance driven by automation. The business changes driving rapid digital transformation work to advance the organization but often at the expense of secure operations. Balancing the risks associated with operating in continuous state of change is difficult without the right people, processes and technology in place to successfully navigate the organization.
Our vulnerability specialists help organizations implement and operate their attack surface reduction (ASR) strategies, leveraging automation and machine learning capabilities to aid in protecting their environment. Our team will work with you on:
