Mitigate cyber risks associated with digital transformation
“How can we guarantee our business continuity in case of cyber attacks or other possibile threats?”
Cyber-attacks have forced many organisations to review their digital transformation strategy to limit the damages to their business and reputation caused by service disruption.
Our team of professionals can support the executive management in the definition of business continuity programs that ensure resilience towards major threats (e.g., ransomware) with prompt recovery from crises and events.
Being able to guarantee resilience in the event of cyber-attacks or other types of threats, requires a rigorous analysis of the main business processes and the identification and periodic review of the continuity plans. As suggested by standards such as the ISO 22301 and regulations such as the European DORA (Digital Resilience Operation Act), one of the most important phases of a resilience program is the verification of the effectiveness of the response to incidents achieved by executing a real simulation of threat scenarios.
“How can we govern and improve our Cyber Security posture?”
Security initiatives should not be triggered by incidents and external events, they should however originate from a structured strategy defined in line with frameworks derived from best practices and standards.
Our team of professionals provides support to our clients in establishing their Cyber Security strategy, enforcing governance of Cyber Security initiatives coherent with business objectives and with the digital strategy set up by the Organisation, involving all the relevant stakeholders (e.g., process and service owners).
We also provide support in the assessment of the Organisation’s Cyber Security posture, leveraging main international standards (e.g., ISO 27001, NIST Cyber Security Framework), and in the definition of remediation roadmaps which include organisational and technological initiatives aimed at securing corporate systems.
Lastly, thanks to our long-standing experience within this field, we can support customers in the execution of maturity assessment for Industrial Environments, applying industry-specific standards (e.g., IEC 62443).
What Cyber Security skills are needed to face ordinary threats and to become skilled and trained Cyber Security professionals?
Our team of professionals provides support to our clients in the process of upskilling and reskilling their employees.
In this regard, we developed the CyberSec Academy with ad hoc training paths addressed to:
- Employees that are only occasionally involved in Cyber Security processes and are, therefore, trained to assess the cyber threats in the standard operational environment.
- Employees that are accountable for Cyber Security processes and therefore, need in-depth knowledge of Cyber Security organisational and technical best practices.
From Knowing to doing: these learning paths are NOT standard training courses because we don’t focus only in delivering the “what”, we also involve the learners in workshops and simulations in order to pass on our “know how”.
All the courses are designed for both those new to the work environment and those who have already developed professionalism in the IT/legal/operational environment and have chosen to, or are called to, convert their professional profile to the Cyber Security field.
We developed a CyberSec Academy focused on industrial environments which provides specific skills to operators who work with industrial control systems at different levels: site or plant operators and employees with a management profile and/or with OT accountability.
“How do we establish and ensure compliance with the Cyber Security regulations applicable to our Organisation?”
The severity of the impacts suffered by those affected by cyber-attacks has led governments to introduce and enforce laws and regulations that require companies to adopt effective Cyber Security policies.
Today there are several international laws, Directives and Regulations (such as GDPR, CCPA, LGPD, HIPA, NIS Directive, Cyber Security Act, NERC CIP, PCI DSS, PSD2) that enforce companies to continuously evaluate their business and operational processes and align them to Cyber Security and resilience best practices.
Our team of professionals supports our customers in identifying the requirements of the regulatory environment through an in depth study of national and cross-national regulations with the aim of providing specific country-oriented frameworks containing the relevant requirements and regulations. These frameworks are used to assess the maturity level of organisations in relation to regulatory compliance and to define plans for the implementation of remediation activities.
“How can we effectively manage cyber risks within our Organisation?”
Cyber Security risk management is crucial for any company pursuing its business objectives leveraging on the digital services available.
Our team provides support to our customers in the process of identifying and assessing cyber risk in order to treat it.
Our team provides support to clients in the process of identifying and assessing cyber risks and defining the right and appropriate countermeasures needed to mitigate those risks.
Our risk management methodology is based on the best international industry standards, and it is applicable to all technological environments: from traditional IT to industrial OT and IoT.
Thanks to several concrete projects and programs developed at international level, Bip CyberSec has consequently consolidated the gained experience into our proprietary methodology and an innovative platform, Cyber Risk DIVE.
Cyber Risk DIVE includes features and processes to support clients in the assessment and continuous monitoring of cyber risks through intuitive executive dashboards.
“How do we establish and ensure compliance with the data protection and privacy regulations applicable to our Organisation?”
Personal information is an increasingly valuable – and increasingly risky – business asset. As businesses struggle to keep abreast of the critical, fast-changing data protection laws whilst facing the increasing risk of serious data breaches, it is imperative that appropriate measures are defined which must involve stakeholders within your organisation that, importantly, are of differing skills (legal, information technology, cybersecurity, etc.)
Our team of professionals is made up of specialists with both legal and technical skills, in order to offer a wide range of services and solutions for data protection and privacy regulatory compliance. These will relate to the design and implementation of global privacy and security programs including the: execution of audit and risk assessments; development of global policies; provision of effective international data transfer strategies; negotiation of contractual data processing terms; and much more.
Our team provides support to clients, in the process of identifying and assessing regulatory obligations, in order to implement appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure and demonstrate that data processing is performed in accordance to compliance requirements.
Our approach and methodologies are based on several concrete projects and programs developed for clients within the public and private sectors and to international guidelines (EDPB, CNIL, etc.) and standards (ISO/IES 27701, ENISA, etc.), all with consideration to regional and national laws, by specification and under provision of the Supervisor Authority.
