Software & Hardware Security Engineering
Secure the software through development lifecycles such as risk and requirements analysis, architecture design, code implementation, validation, verification, testing, deployment, and runtime monitoring of operation.
security by design
Integrating security automation in each step of Software Development Life Cycle: initiation, analysis & design, development, testing, deployment, operations, maintenance, disposal.
Minimize attack surface area
Establish secure defaults
Define a minimum set of privileges
Enable multiple layers of validation
Ensure that failure does not give the user additional privileges
Check the validity of data of third-party services
Certify user profiling
Assure application security without hiding core functionality
Develop security controls for applications
Determine the root cause of security issues
Developing guidelines for secure programming principles and best practices.
Identify security requirements upfront
Implement a secure software development framework
Establish secure coding standards
Provide software security training to development teams
Verify the effectiveness of security controls throughout the project lifecycle
Implement a change management system
Standardize commenting and documentation
Design authentication scheme
Review security procedures
Ensure encryption for the transmission of all sensitive information
Authorized simulated network attacks on an IT/OT system to determine security vulnerabilities that could be exploited by an attacker.
Establish a penetration testing governance structure
Evaluate drivers for conducting penetration tests
Identify target environments
Produce requirements specifications
Agree on testing style and scope (Black box, Grey Box, White Box, External, Internal)
Identify testing constraints
Select an effective testing methodology (OSSTM, OWASP, NIST, ISSAF, PTES)
Identify and exploit vulnerabilities
Collect evidence and generate report
Address root causes of weaknesses
Initiate improvement program
Create and monitor action plans

Obtain and analyze firmware
Extract and analyze filesystems
Software Composition Analysis (SCA)
Assess hardening compliance
Categorize assets and their security level
Develop remediation plan
Monitor third parties remediations status
Identifying, classifying, prioritizing, remediating, and mitigating IT/OT systems software vulnerabilities.
Conduct vulnerability assessment activities
Record discovered vulnerabilities
Categorize and prioritize vulnerabilities
Manage exposure to discovered vulnerabilities
Determine the effectiveness of vulnerability dispositions
Analyze root causes
Define measures of effectiveness
Determine tools aligned to the strategy
Identify sources of vulnerability information
Develop a plan revision process
Engage and train stakeholders
We use the most advanced tools to accomplish security tasks whether from third parties or that our highly unique software security suite.
We integrate security analysis in the continous integration, continous deployment, and continous monitoring processes.
We adhere to the most globally accepted standards including the ISO/IEC 27001:2013 that sets out the specification for an information security management system.
We institute strong security practices throughout the application lifecycle to reduce vulnerabilities, improve security posture and mitigate risks.
Policy to Procedure
We address processes that need to be in place to execute the translation from policy to procedure through our specific set of skills and experience which are typically scarce in the industry.
We build an automated security architecture designed around the individual risk profile of the organization, taking into account that each organization has its own unique approach to automation, DevOps, and cloud.
