Today’s information systems are more interconnected than ever and security together with compliance should be at the forefront of every new or existing platform. The technology landscape is ever changing and the security model must respond in a timely fashion to keep pace. As a result, modern application and system architectures require a new security model and the resources to implement it.
ShorePoint has the services and solutions to identify assets on your network, determine who is accessing them, and ensure systems and applications are operating in a secure manner to execute the organization’s mission.
ShorePoint's approach to the cybersecurity challenge is based on three core tenets: Visibility, Analytics, and Context.
If your adversary knows more about your network than you do, you have already lost.
Knowing what to defend is as important as knowing how it is defended. Defending your data begins with a deep understanding of what it is that you are actually protecting and the ability to gather critical information across your entire business and technology landscape. As simple as this sounds, all too often visibility across one’s business architecture is obscured from the start or degrades naturally over time. As organizations embark on modernization of infrastructure and application architectures, there are significant opportunities to gain the necessary visibility.
Now that you have the data, how do you make it work for you?
In today’s world of data driven networks, a move to automation, open integration in technologies, and machine learning provide overwhelming information on what is happening within the enterprise. But in that avalanche of data, it is critical to quickly determine what is happening on your infrastructure. ShorePoint's methodology enables our customers to translate technological information to specific actions to protect their data and assets.
Great data informs great decisions when full context is applied.
The context is just as important as the situation itself. Understanding what's happening in proper context helps determine the tactical and strategic decisions that need to be made. Every day, our decisions, significant or not, are made utilizing varying amounts of data. We gather, group and analyze that data and build the necessary situational context to make the best and most informed decision possible. As we secure our organizations, a comprehensive data set (visibility) and the ability to group and analyze multiple data sources (analytics), are the critical building blocks to increased maturity and effectiveness in overall risk reduction.
How do evolving compliance frameworks impact the organization? How do emerging technologies and applications affect the organization? How does the organization's industry relate to the security posture needed to counteract threats? ShorePoint brings broad experience across both the public and private sector to provide context to the cyber and business decisions facing your organization.
Continuous Diagnostics & Mitigation (CDM)
ShorePoint brings unmatched experience and knowledge of the $6B DHS Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation program. CDM is a historic endeavor to implement automated security capabilities across all federal civilian Departments and Agencies. CDM is as complex as it is ambitious as security technologies, built and managed for specific purposes, are utilized to implement various capabilities to identify what’s on the network, who’s on the network, and what’s happening on the network in near real time.
ShorePoint assists organizations with developing, implementing, and maintaining the methodologies, technologies, and processes to manage the current cyber threat landscape. Federal agencies are the target of numerous advanced persistent threats and addressing these threats requires a broad base of expertise and knowledge to protect the Agency’s data, resources, and personnel.
Defending against today’s cyber threat landscape requires a proactive real-time approach to managing risk. Too often, organizations are driven to make cyber investments that implement ad hoc controls in a reactive manner or in response to an ever-evolving set of standards that may lack clear guidance on how to prioritize those controls to address the most critical and prominent threats. In these scenarios, Risk Management has deviated from its purest meaning – making informed, predictive risk-based decisions.
