CASE 02
GOVERNMENT

Business Challenge
  • The education agency required detailed real-time operational visibility of security events and incidents across their highly dispersed environment, supported by enforceable SLAs.
  • The agency’s complex portfolio of web applications represented an unclassified security and privacy risk, compounded by sensitivity requirements for management of school, teacher, student and parent data .
  • A complex supply chain and heavy reliance on unmanaged applications necessitated an audit to establish a baseline of identified risk and ensure compliance with agency policies
Solution
Leveraging the PROTECT+ Threat Intelligence and Security Assurance solution:
  • Comprehensive visibility was gained through an integration of next-generation security technologies with Threat Intelligence and Threat Response solution and supported by a dynamic customised reporting dashboard.
  • PROTECT+ Security Assurance consultants worked with business and technical application owners to define a technical security assurance program, incorporating data-centric risk matrices, penetration testing and vulnerability management.
  • An audit of over 200 of the agency’s third-party vendors and suppliers was conducted to assess compliance with agency regulation requirements, and to measure their security maturity against industry standard criteria.
