FAQ

How does an IT security audit help with regulatory compliance?

 

IT security audits play a vital role in helping companies ensure compliance with industry-specific regulations, data protection laws, and security standards. By conducting audits, businesses can assess their adherence to regulatory requirements, identify gaps in compliance, and implement necessary controls and processes to meet the mandated security standards.

 

Can embedded systems penetration testing be performed on existing systems?

 

Yes, as a penetration testing company, we perform it on both existing and newly developed systems. It is important to assess the current state of existing systems to identify vulnerabilities, mitigate risks, and improve the overall level of protection. Regular embedded systems penetration testing can also help identify potential weaknesses introduced through system updates or changes in the environment.

What is the recommended frequency for conducting embedded systems security testing?

 

The frequency of embedded device security assurance depends on various factors, such as the complexity, criticality, and risk tolerance of your systems, applications, or business in general.
 
As a general guideline, it is recommended to conduct software security testing at least once during each major development phase, such as during initial development, after significant updates or modifications, and before deployment or release.
 
Additionally, employing ongoing embedded security services should be a part of a proactive security maintenance plan, with periodic assessments scheduled at least annually or as dictated by industry standards or changes in the threat landscape.
 

What are the key components of security operations management?

 

  • Security policy development and enforcement.
  • Monitoring, detection, and response to incidents.
  • Threat intelligence gathering and analysis.
  • Vulnerability management and patching.
  • Security operations centre (SOC) establishment and management.
  • Security awareness training and education.
 

Can security operations management be outsourced?

 

Yes, it can be outsourced to security operations companies. Outsourcing allows businesses to utilise the expertise of dedicated security professionals, access advanced security operations software and technologies, and benefit from 24/7 monitoring and incident response capabilities.
 
However, it is critical to select a trusted and reputable security partner with proven expertise and a strong track record in security operations management.
