Architecture and Engineering

Building secure foundations for business.

If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.

Henry David Thoreau

According to an IBM System sciences report, fixing issues once the system is in production is 100x more expensive than fixing them at earlier phases of the system design and implementation cycle:

Note that this is for general functionality “bugs” - if we consider that a number of security issues are only found once they are exploited (unless you’re using our penetration testing/red-teaming or other services ), this doesn’t even take into account the cost of incident response (), damage to organizational reputation, and so forth.

The high risks associated with not addressing issues as early as possible is one of the prime reasons that most companies with mature software development practices are implementing methodologies such as the Secure Development Life Cycle (SDLC), BSIMM, OpenSAMM. In addition, subsets of those methodologies, and other frameworks such as COBIT, PCI, and ISO standards can be used to guide implementation of systems, components, and infrastructure so as to reduce the risk of compromise.

Occamsec has teams of specialists with extensive experience breaking, as well as building components and infrastructure that intimately understand how to design such systems securely. We have the breadth of skill and knowledge to be able to help you build business cases, design secure architectures, and assist with implementing secure hardware and software systems, protocols, and infrastructure, however demanding the domain your organization operates in is.
