Security engineering and operations

Security engineering and operations are the backbone of an effective, cohesive security program.

Consulting services that help optimize your information protection efforts and enhance your secure architecture design

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 sometimes exist between organizational requirements and implemented solutions. Security teams can experience difficulty maintaining accurate asset inventory within their boundaryless 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.

Organizations benefit from our specialized experience in:

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:

  • Ensuring continuous discovery scanning that identifies new and changed assets, leading to improved visibility into assets within the environment
  • Maintaining an accurate list of asset and IP inventory
  • Defining a risk-driven taxonomy to manage configuration items (CI) and prioritize protection efforts
  • Developing robust CI classification aligned to an understanding of mission-critical systems
  • Reducing the risk of unauthorized or unsecure assets from negatively impacting the environment
  • Improving breach response and vulnerability remediation efforts through a focus on high-value assets
