Building A High-Level Security Team To Protect And Secure
Needing to meet federally mandated compliance standards, an aviation technology corporation needed to build a high-level security team to protect and secure its proprietary web conferencing applications. Failure to adhere to compliance standards would result in significant customer turnover and heavy fines.
Identifying Security Vulnerabilities
To meet compliance standards, the security team needed to be able to identify vulnerabilities, fix existing security gaps and improve security processes. Under a very compressed timeline to identify the resources needed, the customer turned to Allyon for a talent acquisition solution. This solution would expand their security resources and address these issues.
The Allyon Solution
Allyon implemented its Managed Engagement model, a solution designed to increase the customer’s focus on strategic business priorities and to minimize the administrative burdens of talent acquisition, onboarding, and performance management of consultants. Under the Managed Engagement model, Allyon assumed responsibilities for talent identification, deployment, weekly status reports, and monthly performance reviews.
Allyon identified and acquired 20 high-level security resources including Security Architects, Compliance Implementers/Auditors, Penetration Testers, Monitoring Engineers, and Security Project Managers.
This full security team investigated over 1,000 high severity vulnerabilities, submitted over 200 security defect requests, and implemented new processes in the Software Development Life Cycle. In addition, our incident monitoring team developed three new security expert training modules currently being utilized by the customer.
Delivering Great Results
In securing the right talent, Allyon was able to move many of the security functions away from third party assessment agencies. Bringing the contingent workforce in-house saved the customer hundreds of thousand of dollars on a quarterly basis. The customer continues to focus on security, an ever-changing area of high potential growth. Consultants work on compliance certification continually, while hardening the firm's security stance across multiple products. The customer continues to work with Allyon and plans to increase their security team staffing by twenty percent.
