SERVICE DELIVERY APPROACH
In an environment where business success is highly dependent on the interconnectedness of people, processes, and technology, the business risk landscape has changed. New threats have evolved which expose an organization’s vulnerabilities and threaten the security of its information. Any business that values the Confidentiality, Integrity and Availability of its information should operate within a security framework, which is constantly evaluated and improved.
Odyssey’s range of solutions and services adopts a 4-phase Information Security Continuum (ISC) with the goal of maximizing the effectiveness of our customers’ security investment, leaving no room for loose ends and weak links.
Cybersecurity management involves the development, deployment and ongoing monitoring and review of a combination of preventive, detective and responsive processes and controls. It is a cycle of iterative processes and activities where each phase feeds into the other, so that an organization’s cybersecurity framework remains efficient and effective over time.
The cycle begins with the Test & Assess phase during which the technical and procedural controls in place (or lack thereof) are being tested and assessed. This engagement leads to the Design & Implement phase, where the additional measures and controls required to minimize the risk gap are designed and implemented. In the Monitor & Respond phase, the organization capitalizes on its new cybersecurity implementations and enhances its monitoring activities to ensure that any threat alerts raised are quickly identified and effectively addressed. Organizations tend to enter the Outsourcing phase when they realize that it is more productive for them to focus on their core competencies, and to outsource the management of the entire, or parts, of their cybersecurity infrastructure/framework and its round-the-clock monitoring to a Managed Security Services (MSS) provider. The iteration of this cyclical process can be repeated as many times as needed.
Maintaining high operational performance while meeting mandatory compliance requirements can be a daunting task for an organization in today’s rapidly evolving world of information. New opportunities from technological advancements carry new inherent threats, and therefore, cybersecurity baselines need to timely adapt.
The Information Security Continuum (ISC) framework responds to this dynamic cyber environment by empowering organizations to regularly reassess and reevaluate their cybersecurity strategy and infrastructure, and to adjust to current threats accordingly. Odyssey™ specializes in this continuous process of assessing and swiftly remodeling your organization’s policies and/or infrastructure to achieve an enhanced up-to-date security posture and compliance.
