The scale of the cyber security threat facing organisations is becoming increasingly clear, with more and more organisations falling vulnerable to cyber attacks. To add to this pressure, IT and security teams are finding it extremely difficult to implement quick and sustainable improvements needed to defend against these persistent cyber threats and meet strict compliance requirements due to:
lengthy, technical reports listing vulnerabilities which aren’t understood and therefore not correctly prioritised or implemented,
an often understaffed security team unable to free up resources to assist in the timely remediation of issues, or
relying on untested or underperforming protection, detection and response capabilities that aren't able to limit the impact of an incident.
Our Rapid Risk Reduction service provides an enhanced approach to purple teaming, with proven benefits over traditional approaches by combining red team, blue team and technical project management expertise to find and fix security vulnerabilities as soon as they are identified. Our approach iteratively improves protection, detection and response capabilities, and validates all improvement activities, providing assurance to stakeholders that cyber risks have been remediated effectively:
Our approach is underpinned by the MITRE ATT&CK framework to provide structure and align to the real world threat, and Agile methodologies to deliver rapid and flexible progress
Our regular progress reporting clearly demonstrates verified benefits; namely increasing 'cost to an attacker' and reduction of cyber risk across the environment. This reporting is tailored to both technical frontline staff, and senior executives, stakeholders, and regulators.
Rapid Risk Reduction delivers rapid short term cyber risk reduction by verifiably remediating security weaknesses as soon as they are identified, and improving the effectiveness of security technology, across a series of Agile sprints.
