Transitioning to, or implementing a cloud solution or strategy can seem daunting. We assist in helping the business leverage innovation to deliver agility, driving results. We will assist in helping you select the right cloud solutions that are best suited to your organisational needs. What are the best practices for security? The reality is, it's likely that there are departments within your organisation that have already adopted one or more Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) Solutions. So, how do you secure and leverage cloud computing solutions to create and adopt a successful strategy? By using effective methodologies that incorporate best practices in planning, deployment and operation can help lay the foundation for your cloud solution deployment and management.
The key security constructs (on the basis of which security policies will be defined and enforced) are infrastructure, information, identity, and end-user devices. Residing on a combination of public/private/hybrid clouds and on-premise virtualised infrastructure, workloads are decoupled from their underlying infrastructure. In the perimeter enterprise, flexible and secure information controls require policies that use rich information classification models, federated identities, and context-based authorisation.
Key security and risk management concerns that are barriers to adoption of cloud computing include the following:
- Risk assessment: Which clouds and devices are your sensitive data residing in?
- Governance: How do you achieve compliance (e.g. PCI) in an environment where your information and applications are distributed across many clouds?
- Managing entitlements: Who has access to your sensitive data, from which devices, and from which locations? Is this access permitted, and would you have visibility of when it is exercised?
- Devices: Are employee devices sufficiently secured to access corporate data and applications?

DRS provides specialist services designed to help you effectively manage your modern security environment. While the importance of cybersecurity in today’s business environment is intensifying, organisations are having to deal with new challenges in order to stay ahead of cybercriminals. Among these are increasingly tight budgets and a lack of skills. Many organisations are therefore looking for partners that can provide the skills and services needed to complement their strengths, and alleviate their weaknesses. No matter how good your policies and procedures may be, and no matter what or how many security products you throw at the problem, your staff will remain your weakest link unless you find a way to educate them about the threats out there. With 21 years’ worth of experience and highly skilled teams of specialists, DRS provides services designed to help align your business and information security.
Behavioural Analytics are analytics that businesses use that focus on consumer trends, patterns, and activities. Humans are typically creatures of habit and our use of the internet is no different. Through developing and deploying analytics that baselines an individual’s behaviours and trends, companies are able to personalise marketing efforts, improve the customer experience, and even alter product offerings to suit a customer’s particular tastes. However, Behavioral Analytics don’t need to be limited to just analysing customer behaviours. Applying them to cybersecurity can determine the difference between a major breach and warding off an attack.
Early Detection and Response (EDR) helps you confidently answer the question: “Is my data under attack?” The DRS solution focuses on collecting and analysing behavioural data, meaning it doesn’t focus on what the data is, it focuses on the behaviours and motivations behind the data. This enables the solution to spot suspicious activities that would otherwise be overlooked.
DevSecOps has extended the principles of Agile software development beyond the deployment of product (software code) to include the services provided by IT operations after the product deploys. The practice combines development and operations — from the design and development stages of the Agile SDLC all the way to production support in IT operations. DevSecOps is not just about tools or about automating tasks using software. Automation is a core DevSecOps value, and it is essential to Agile development practices, including continuous integration and continuous delivery. Our application security experts use a combination of automated tools and manual tests to identify vulnerabilities in the application, estimate the probability of them being exploited, and provide a risk profile for the application components. Drawing on their knowledge and experience, our analysts exploit logical errors in the application, as well as coding errors, to gain entry. They also consider the potential impact of any problems – and help you find ‘proportionate’ solutions.
DRS offers the skills and tools necessary to conduct digital forensic analysis across various Operating Systems. Our discovery solutions include large-scale searches or audits, and our lab provides large-scale investigation and processing. DRS recovers digital evidence from mobile devices under forensically sound conditions, using accepted methods. This would involve analysing SIM cards, memory cards and the handset itself. Our forensic analysis of mobile phones can be carried out on various forms of data, including SMS's, images, videos and audio files. DRS provides forensic duplication that ensures every bit on the source is retained, including deleted files. This ensures the data can act as admissible evidence in court proceedings.
Our experts work in co-operation with risk and security teams to identify problems, design and implement solutions to protect data and systems, detect adverse ‘cyber events’ and ensure effective response and recovery. Consultants with decades of experience, they will help you and your employees manage the challenges of increasingly complex technologies and security systems – developing cyber resilience.
We can help with all aspects of IT security – from the development of effective management systems to forensic investigation of information security breaches. We advise on:
- PA DSS Services
- PCI DSS Services
- SWIFT CSP
- PSD2 Services
- GDPR Services
- Blockchain Services
- IT Risk Management
- Information Security Management Systems (ISMS)
We assess your cybersecurity risks across the three core organisational dimensions – technology, processes and people. The risk landscape is changing as technologies, cyber criminals and hacktivisits become smarter, and the financial penalties for security failures increase. Our Assurance Services provide an ‘early warning system’ by testing for vulnerabilities in software, hardware and processes.
They enable you to take action to prevent costly security breaches, and help you prove to shareholders and stakeholders that you won’t put confidential or sensitive data at unnecessary risk.
The short answer, we look at risk across the three core dimensions of an organisation: Technology, processes, people.
We will take a holistic approach – and we’ll recommend solutions to help you become cyber resilient.
The longer answer:
- ICS Security Assessment
- Information Systems Audit
- Vulnerability Assessment
- Application Security Assessment
- Penetration Testing
