Security Management

Secure Digital Business Risk Based Security Management

As mobility and availability requirements grow, so does the complexity of systems and applications. Especially in the area of cyber security, it is not possible and often not necessary to address all threats and vulnerabilities. We help you to develop a risk-based view of your data and applications and to define and optimize corresponding management approaches. We also guide you in considering new strategies in the area of resilience.

  • Cyber security and risk management
  • Information Security Management System (ISMS)
  • Cyber resilience and Business Continuity Management (BCM)

With our modern web application fortControl you always have an overview and can automate many steps. Get in touch with us. https://fort-it.ch/fortcontrol

Security Architecture

Static, perimeter-based security models have not been able to cope with today’s dynamic challenges for quite some time.

Modern access management and control mechanisms make it possible to consider the whole context and thus to make risk-based decisions. Based on advanced information about your digital identities, their location, access time, and many other factors, you can define fine-grained access rules that allow you to strike a balance between optimal security and high usability.

Three basic areas of application can be identified in which Zero Trust measures can be implemented according to the “Never Trust, Always Verify” paradigm:

  • Access management: Adaptive authentication & authorization based on risk levels determined by contextual information.
  • Segmentation: Dynamic segmentation based on policies (per workload)
  • Security operation: Continuously identify, analyze and respond to suspicious (user) activity.

Security Implementation

Secure Digital Business Usable Security

Cyber security is not about perfection and many principles such as security-by-design to not go far enough or tend to neglect the human factor. The development and implementation of security functions must place the user at the center. This is the only way to ensure acceptance and understanding.

But what is good enough. The complex security issues and associated risks must be understood at their core. Based on this, effective, company-specific implementations in the areas of awareness, process optimization, usability and automation can be derived. For example, modern standards around “passwordless” (such as FIDO2) enable high security and enhanced usability at the same time.

Let us inspire and/or challenge you.
