Security advisory & strategyservice
It's tricky to correlate security matters to your product growth plan when you're aspiring for a product business. It also could be hard to create an efficient security strategy that mitigates cybersecurity risks without compromising on the usability and flexibility of your solutions.
The reason is the skills, competency, and mentality mismatch between product makers and security professionals. We can fill this gap, ensuring that whatever you're building is resilient against the risks you're facing.
Security strategy is hard
Skills and experience
Security strategy means correlating business risks, technical risks, technical capabilities, and the product. It's challenging and requires a lot of expertise.
No silver bullet
Just buying something or hiring someone won't help—security is a fundamental part of the company's efforts. Silver bullets rarely mitigate all the risks but often require significant changes inside the company.
Security strategy requires a solid implementation: defining a strategy with practical steps is not easy. Without a good map, it's hard to focus on what needs to be fixed.
False sense of security
Risk judgments are counterintuitive by nature—but when it comes to information security, most heuristics fail even worse.
What a proper security strategy brings
Focusing security on business needs
Understanding that security is a part of a broader business helps define where you should focus spend your efforts when building your product.
Reality instead of wishful thinking
Understanding the tools, infrastructure, data flow, and processes instead of "do this and feel good". Something that poses a significant threat to one business is a negligibly rare event for another.
Targeted efforts instead of band-aids
Security measures should be tailored to your product and threats, rather than filling the boxes on a checklist. Allocate resources to tasks that will fundamentally improve the risk posture.
Our approach to security strategy
Focus on preventing risks, not vulnerabilities
We help you to define company's cybersecurity goals and choose an efficient strategy to achieve them. The most efficient way to synchronise product and security teams is to make sure they understand processes, roles, milestones and have a clear roadmap.
Map out security requirements
We convey compliance requirements, business risks, and customer value to your business and tech stack. We will guide you towards the right security efforts and clarify what sets the right balance of security, cost, and operational trade-offs.
Balance security and business capability
Security is an invasive and never-ending process. We understand how to mitigate risks, minimize outages, improve general capacity in product teams, and focus their efforts on preventing security weaknesses early on.
