Equilibrium’s Security Practice Methodology
The security practice methodologies that we employ are designed with a combination of the industry standard frameworks from industries such as: Healthcare, Manufacturing, Finance, and Federal. Our security program is a never-ending cycle, consisting of 4 different phases. The 4 phases of Equilibrium’s security methodology are security assessment, architect, implement and manage.
Phase 1 – Security Assessment - Since we work closely with our client, we are able to provide them reliable insight about their organization’s security status and vulnerability. This is where Equilibrium’s security team analyzes an organization’s security with a vulnerability scan. We do this in order to devise a high-level road map for what your organization needs to do to ensure its safety, including recommendations on how to carry that out.
Phase 2 – Architect – This is the phase where Equilibrium and our client decide on a strategy together on how to minimize the organization’s vulnerabilities. We will craft policies and procedures, create a control framework and designed specific solutions for your organization. We can do this only after we have fully accessed your organization’s needs and risk tolerance, as a result of our security assessment.
Phase 3 – Implement – In this phase, we put the policies and procedures from Phase 2 into effect. Any upgrading of infrastructure or controls is completed during this phase. Every client is assigned a PMO or Project Management Office, whose job is to oversee that projects are completed according to schedule, are being completed within the budget, and to assure that his or her projects are high quality.
Phase 4 – Manage – After discovering our client’s specific requirements, a management and security support plan is enacted for our client. Equilibrium’s SOC or Security Operations Center, is vigilantly watching over our client’s alerts with their incident response plan in mind. This phase utilizes Network Penetration Testing and Vulnerability Scanning, to assist our clients in validating their controls and maintaining compliance.
