Understand the risk of your cybersecurity infrastructure

A secure architecture design has been specifically designed for data protection against security threats. It incorporates features such as secure coding practices, secure communications, secure data storage, and more.

Cyphere’s secure design review services can help you understand the risks to your cybersecurity network infrastructure and make recommendations to mitigate those risks.

Our security architecture review provides a detailed report on your organisation’s security posture against established our capability based on NIST CSF and MITRE ATT&CK framework, including the complexity and cost of improving it. We also test your processes and people to ensure that your security is comprehensive and effective.

Our team of security experts will work with you to perform threat intelligence based assessments, find vulnerabilities in your design, and recommend mitigation strategies to reduce or eliminate those risks.

We’ll identify design components’ flaws and weaknesses, such as application servers, communication protocols, configurations and database choices.

Benefits of a secure design review

Proactive security through secure design reviews delivers tangible business benefits:

  1. Mitigate Financial Risk: Minimise downtime and potential multi-million dollar costs from cyberattacks and data breaches by identifying and addressing vulnerabilities before they’re exploited.
  2. Enhance Operational Efficiency: Secure design prevents system disruptions and costly outages, ensuring consistent uptime and uninterrupted business operations, saving thousands per minute of downtime.
  3. Optimise Security Investments: Prioritised insights from the review pinpoint critical vulnerabilities, enabling laser-focused security investments, potentially saving hundreds of thousands on unnecessary spending.
  4. Foster Competitive Advantage: Proactive risk management showcased through secure design builds trust and confidence with stakeholders, opening doors to new business opportunities and boosting brand value.
  5. Improve Long-Term ROI: Secure design lays the foundation for a scalable and adaptable security posture, reducing future security costs and ensuring long-term business resilience.

As part of our engagement process, customers schedule a free of charge debrief with management and technical teams. This session involves remediation plan, assessment QA to ensure that customer contacts are up to date in the language they understand.

What is assessed in a secure design and architecture review?

Cyphere’s Secure Design and Architecture Review is far more than a checklist. It’s a comprehensive exploration, a deep dive into the digital depths that is more than an information security audit.

System Security Posture

Comprehensive evaluation of overall security controls, data flow, and component interdependencies.

Component-Level Security

In-depth analysis of application servers, communication protocols, configurations, and database choices.

Vulnerability Management

Identifying and prioritising system, service, and network infrastructure vulnerabilities.

Secure Communication Protocols

Assessment of data encryption, authentication mechanisms, and network segmentation to prevent unauthorised access and eavesdropping.

User Interface Security

Evaluation of user interfaces for potential vulnerabilities and adherence to secure coding practices.

Development Security Review

Analysis of development processes to identify security flaws and recommend best practices for secure coding and implementation.

This review goes beyond a standard audit, providing a holistic assessment to optimise your security posture and build a resilient digital foundation.

Frequently Asked Questions

When should you conduct a security architecture review in an enterprise?

A security architecture review should be conducted in the enterprise’s software development life cycle. It should be done before the system is deployed and regularly after that.

Can you conduct a security architecture review for systems already in production?

Yes, we can conduct security architecture reviews for systems already in production. We recommend that all systems be periodically reviewed for security vulnerabilities.

What is the difference between security architecture and security design?

Security architecture is the high-level structure of a system, while security design is the detailed design of that system. Security architecture focuses on the system’s overall security, while security design focuses on the individual components.
