We are dedicated to assisting your organization to maintain an integrated security infrastructure that can prevent the effect of known or future security vulnerabilities.
Information Security is now essential to any size business in order to prevent and respond to costly and potentially embarrassing security incidents. We work closely with you and your staff to identify and address each concern without disrupting your ability to do business.
The team at 5thColumn came in with very short notice, analyzed our situation and quickly worked through our challenges with a high level of technical and professional knowledge. They brought the right resources to the table and worked diligently to identify and resolve our issues quickly.- Tim Walter, Chief Information Officer, Akoo International Inc.
As a business, your data is likely considered highly valuable intellectual property and must be identified and protected.
Data is the center-point of all information security risks. In addition to proprietary data, an organization must also certify the confidentiality and security of information and systems that handle partner and/or customer details or data.
Identifying the data assets that should be protected, where that data resides, who can access the data and ultimately how it is being stored and utilized can be one of the largest tasks facing any organization.
Organizations are challenged to meet the demands of the business while maintaining their much needed security posture while staff struggle to reduce operational expense, attempting to optimize and manage their IT complex environments. 5thColumn's experience and expertise helps your business regain control and maintain costs.
The 5thColumn security teams are identified experts in "best in class" security technologies. In an effort to meet the constantly changing threat landscape, we have evolved with technologies, security platforms, management consoles, logging, and reporting systems.
While protection of your data assets is the proper first step to reducing risk and ensuring business continuity, proper detection and response planning is vital to decrease the likelihood of negative impact.
5thColumn response management capabilities stand ready to support your organization in both planning for future attacks as well as dealing with current activity that appears malicious in nature. Our team can effectively stop an existing attack, identify and eradicate the source of a breach, properly document the impact of the activity and ultimately assist in mitigating the financial and reputational impact they may ensue.
5thColumn knows that the key to effective risk management is an effective set of information security documentation, including policies, procedures, standards and processes. This documentation starts with a thorough gap analysis of an organization's needs and existing capabilities.
5thColumn delivers and provides guidance to your business to ensure the proper implementation of appropriate risk management framework. Proper risk management framework is paramount to assuring the correct identification of data assets, the impact of potential incident, and reducing the likelihood of such events. By helping an organization move away from a fragmented or compartmentalized risk management solution, we bring the proven methodology and guidance necessary to implement effective risk mitigation strategy.
