Security strategy and execution must be aligned to business strategy. Business partners and vendors need oversight. New and disruptive technologies, as well as the Internet of Things (IoT), require new technologies to harden the security posture of an organization and its partner ecosystems. There is a limited supply of qualified security and executive teams need to be educated on what this all means to the business—further adding to the complexity of challenges for CISO’s.
Whether you need a source of manpower to augment your existing team, an assessment of your current state and associated remediation services, or a project execution team to improve security capabilities, Hawkins Point is the local, trusted, and flexible Security Services Partner you need. Our services span the following disciplines.
Strategy, Risk, and Compliance
In the face of increasingly complex compliance requirements and multi-dimensional risk throughout an organization, Hawkins Point helps clients assess their current security governance as it relates to Personally identifiable information (PII) security and IT regulatory compliance. Additionally, Hawkins Point works with organizations to connect the dots between emerging technology and the need to refine existing, or create new, business processes to ensure short, medium, and long term compliance and risk management.
Data and Application Security
Data loss is in the news on a weekly basis. With rapidly evolving threats and constant waves of new mobile devices connecting to the Internet along with integration to enterprise applications, risk is a constant. The industry at large is doing all it can to stay ahead. Hawkins Point helps organizations ensure they are in line with industry best practices to prevent data loss and helps identify vulnerabilities within applications—across all devices.
Identity and Access Management (IAM)
Enabling the right people to have access to the right resources at the right time seems easy enough on the surface. With increasingly complex technology environments and more and more rigorous compliance obligations, it is not. Hawkins Point helps clients increase agility and manage costs by maturing organizational IAM capabilities.
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the most significant change to European privacy regulations in the last twenty years. It replaces the EU Data Privacy Directive introduced in 1995. Effective May 25, 2018, this regulation forces organizations to institute strict measures related to privacy notification, use, and consent, implement controls and processes for data management, and enhance security measures for data protection. Additionally, this is the first regulation to mandate the designation of a DPO Data Privacy Office responsible for ensuring compliance and registration with the EU Commission and other privacy entities.
