Our Philosophy

The way we view the world of Cybersecurity that shapes us

Our philosophy is a culmination of years of hard work, after we faced and overcame seemingly impossible challenges, and designed solutions for our clients that helped them transform their business for the better.

In an era of cloud security solutions and increased pressure to update legacy cyber security strategies, Cybersecurity has to be considered a business enabler, and no longer a cost driver.

Our philosophy at ISHVAR and the response to our client’s cybersecurity needs and perception we have to respond to current cybersecurity needs of the industry.

The force of attacks is increasing
Additional waves of attack will follow, but there will be an increased intensity of these attacks. This raises central questions about the protection of networked devices and connected infrastructures: Who is accountable when cybersecurity measures are not sufficient? Do organisations need to further toughen their requirements and governance controls?
The end of the siloed approach? Enterprise and IT GRC are mutual
The integrated view of IT and business risks do not only improve the regulatory reporting; it allows for an unbiased view of risk posture and the shielded organisation’s values. Additionally, integrating enterprise and IT GRC enables management to achieve an effective decision-making within the organisation. These tactics are of vital importance to organisations when acknowledging rigorous legal requirements, such as the EU General Data Protection Regulation, and the security of intellectual property.
Protection without Managed security services is impractical

Most organisations still sceptical to subcontract cyber security to external partners. In spite of acute talent shortage, trusting competent cybersecurity partners will become one of the most critical success factors to securing organisations, due in part to the increasing internal offenders.

The new perfect couple: IAM and the cloud

IAM and the cloud are becoming the new organisational perimeter. Cloud strategies will be closely entwined with the fields of legal, access and password management. The result is an efficient access and authorisations management, using roles in addition to a safe and seamless authentication.

An era of cloud security solutions

Sensitivity to integrated cloud services and IT infrastructure security is increasing. Furthermore, the cloud became the compelling provider for cybersecurity solutions including event analysis and anomaly identification using artificial intelligence (machine learning), but also for security data analytics managed services and incident response advisory.

The Internet of Things (IoT)

Smart devices are increasingly adopted – simultaneously the protection of consumer privacy is becoming vital. Manufacturers of networked devices will have to adopt tighter security standards. Cybersecurity verification and certification for IoT devices will become more likely before they reach the consumers.

Integrating Safety and Cyber Security
Since IT is an essential part of manufacturing, functional safety and cybersecurity will have to work collectively to protect data exchange, to ensure the reliability of networked systems. Networked industries (Industry 4.0), in particular, will have to consider the security of their products across the whole life cycle and carefully monitor them for potential risks.
Key Factor Endpoint Security

Endpoints such as servers, laptops, mobile phones and tablets, desktop computers are among the simplest for intruders to exploit. Solutions such as Anti-Virus and Anti-Malware to filter potentially dangerous content at the endpoint, no matter how “intelligent”, are no more efficient. Monitoring and correlating events across the IT landscape by gaining real-time threat visibility offers superior protection against attacks.

In response to the above, based on our experience working with various clients we have defined “Triple S” – SCOPE, SHIELD, SCOUT. We firmly believe Triple S helps organisations identify, implement, manage and improve cybersecurity practices.

Triple S is a reiterative process designed to evolve in sync with changes in cybersecurity threats and technology landscapes.  In effect, Triple S envisions effective cybersecurity as a vibrant, constant lifecycle of response to cyber threats and solutions.

Triple S provides a mechanism that enables organisations to determine their current cybersecurity capabilities, establish individual goals for a target state, and develop a plan for improving and maintaining cybersecurity programs.

Triple S is the backbone of our services and service delivery methodologies. Also, all of our associates are extremely fluent in Triple S geared to deliver value to our clients.

ISHVAR’s Cybersecurity Framework

Triple S

SCOPE

Identify what is most valuable to business, where the organisation is vulnerable, what action to take and how to target investment to best effect. So the organisation can be confident that they are secure, compliant and ready to meet its objectives.

SHIELD

Building security into systems at the earliest concept and design phases is the only effective way to secure the complex, integrated and inter-connected solutions that organisations rely on to operate and grow.

SCOUT

Continuously identify, integrate and deploy innovative and efficient security solutions to maintain state-of-the-art protective monitoring services with real-time reporting and escalation for immediate action on suspicious activity.
