Our approach to Security is to view this in a wholistic manner – it starts from the culture and moves into the Management/Technical and Operational aspects. This gives a complete and fundamental approach to securing your organization.

Private Schools’ Need
for an Incident Response Plan & Security Program

An issue that many schools must overcome is how to maintain a level of flexibility for the instructors and students to provide a collaborative environment to exchange data. When this is not executed in a secure manner it can lead to higher risks in data breaches. This was the case for one school, which realized that malicious code was present in the internal network and provided remote access to adversaries.

After the incident was handled, the school realized that they were not prepared to handle any type of breach, so we worked closely together to develop an Incident Response Plan that fit the business model of the school. After the IR Plan was completed, we then moved into creating a comprehensive security plan that the school can use in mitigating and lowering their level of risk.

Law Firms’ Approach on Mobile Users and Data Protection

A significant issue with any firm that has mobile users is the challenge to be traveling on the road and having a mobile office. This issue brings into question – How to protect your data while your end points are not always at your organization? SLATE assisted this law firm with developing a program revolving around personal devices and their use in and out of the office. Law firms deal with Privacy Act issues at a minimum with personal information, when adding other sensitive data, such as,

Patent Data, Court Documents, Medical Records, etc… Their risks increase tremendously. Our program defined what data is to be stored on the device, how it was to be protected, how long it would be stored, etc… This is just one example of a security control that SLATE can assist with during assessments and Security Program implementations.

Health Care Provider Preparing for a Third-Party Audit

SLATE was engaged by a mid-size healthcare provider to address significant gaps in their security posture and to move them into a position to have a third-party audit performed by their business partner, which provided medical information to their organization. We performed a critical control assessment to assist them in the process of preparing for the audit.

Once the assessment was complete, a score card was given to the provider as a starting point to build a program that encompasses the appropriate industry controls to mitigate risks and protect PHI/PII within the organization. They were able to pass their audit and maintain a level of security that has minimal risk.
