Protecting your business in the new world

The frequency and magnitude of data breaches are increasing. Boards of directors and executive
management, in addition to IT departments, are more focused on protection of IT systems and data than ever before.

Dealing with ransomware, malware, web-application attacks, phishing, and the many other types
of attacks can be extremely challenging. For starters, staffing and retaining security professionals
is difficult, with salaries and turnover increasing. From a user standpoint, you may have published
policies and great security tools, but if your users open a link in a phishing email, you have big problems. The hybrid workforce with people working outside and inside the office with a mixture of personal and company devices continues to erode the effectiveness of perimeter-based security.

We believe confidence in cybersecurity and privacy does not come from knowing nothing will happen; it is achieved by knowing all the things that could happen and developing capabilities that are both proactive and responsive. We can help you be prepared!

Executing the transformation journey

You need both a roadmap and cost-effective resources to help you along the journey. And the
execution needs to deal with all the various complexities and gaps in your environment—small or
big. We recommend that your plan include the following:

Managed Security Services and Security Operations –  Save the costs of setting up and/or maintaining a SOC with our SOC-as-a-Service. Our solution’s AI algorithms are purpose built to cut through the noise and deliver actionable information. As one IT director reported, “We are no longer looking at millions of records. Now we are looking only at the ones that make sense.” To deal with the security staffing gap and high costs, we can assist you with virtual CISOs and subject matter advisors–even if you can’t afford full-time people in these roles, as well as offer SLA-driven managed services support.

SASE and Zero Trust as-a-Service – Move from the old data center and perimeter-based security paradigm to a low latency, lower cost, and more secure Zero Trust SASE (Secure Access Service Edge) environment. Furthermore, rather than requiring highly disruptive, multi-year replacement of your full network infrastructure, we can roll out SASE and Zero Trust by application or by cloud as you are ready to do so—and handle each rollout in a matter of hours!.

Vulnerability Management – Proactively protect your company using our seven-step process that protects the confidentiality, integrity and availability of your key systems and data. And at the same time, we can balance the costs and limitations that extensive security controls can put on your organization.

Data Protection & Compliance – Protect your company’s reputation and achieve compliance through our three-pronged, proactive approach: (1) identify and secure your most valuable assets, (2) continuously monitor and (3) respond in a structured, fast way to any breaches

Incident Response, Cyber Resilience, and Threat Management – Be prepared to handle security incidents when they happen. Not only must you deal with the cyber-attack itself, but you must deal proactively with the forensic, PR, and compliance issues.

Finally, it has to work within your budget and timeframe. If you had adequate budget and time, you would already be able to acquire the resources to fix many of these issues.

Customer Story

A major player in the transportation industry was growing at a healthy rate and with this growth, senior management were concerned that info security concerns were not keeping pace. Furthermore, with a rash of news stories highlighting compromises of Microsoft 365 via misconfigurations, they asked Celsior Technologies to conduct a full Information Security Assessment of their existing configuration to develop recommendations for improving their security posture.

Celsior’s assessment methodology leveraged the NIST Framework. The solution involved the use of a review and an automated scan to identify technical vulnerabilities and capability gaps. We then conducted Microsoft 365 log reviews of key personnel to identify subtle indicators of compromise which could escape the automated analysis. Celsior determined that while technical vulnerabilities were being sufficiently addressed, gaps from a programmatic standpoint still needed to be dealt with. We then worked with the customer to develop a customized roadmap based upon their plans for growth over the next three to five years. This ensures that Information Security is “baked in” rather than “bolted on.”

Based on Celsior’s strong delivery, the client later contracted with Celsior for a part-time virtual CISO. Once again, the client has been very happy with the value provided and expanded the vCISO role based on that value add.
