Technology & Operations
The protection of company data requires increasingly complex and well-structured process due to both exponential growth of volumes of data and to the increase in fraudulent attacks and accesses.
Beta 80 services let you start up Compliance processes regarding current legislation, as provided for the EU GDPR Regulations. Guaranteeing the protection of the data and of the rights of the parties involved is required, while taking into consideration technological aspects, liability of the parties and relevant ownerships.
PRIVACY METHODOLOGY AND TECHNOLOGY
½Creating and implementing a methodological process that can guarantee any customer Compliance and ensure the confidentiality and protection of the data used by the same customer is Beta 80’s methodological process. Reference is always made of the legal security measures and company policies.
The methodological process that Beta 80 implemented while referring the legal security measures and company policies is that of guaranteeing and ensuring the confidentiality and protection of the data used by the customer.
This process is supported by an internal technological solution that:
- Identifies, measures and gives priority to the Sensitive Data Risk, based on multiple factors and analyses.
- Knows the position of the sensitive data and, like them, moves inside the company.
- Considers all the factors relating to the sensitive data to give priority to the actions protecting one’s data.
- Answers all those questions that the companies ask when talking about Privacy, penalties and security measures.
IDENTITY & ACCESS GOVERNANCE
Effectively manage the identities of the users and lower the organisation costs.
Putting the identities at the centre of an infrastructure common to all the applications is a key success factor for the ICT initiatives and for a strategy for reducing costs and rationalising applications. More specifically, Beta 80 lets you:
- Simplify management of the users, also when there is a high turnover, while at the same time maintaining compliance with the legal provisions and retaining control over accesses to the applications and to the most important data bases.
- Effectively integrate the various centralised repositories of the companies to extend the access boundaries to the information by opening scenarios of collaboration between different companies (partners, customers/suppliers) with different data bases and applications.
Access to the information based on the repository that concentrates the information on the identities is regulated by an access management system that integrates with the single applications and that guarantees access on the basis of the profiles associated with the users.
Different applications and different technologies therefore share a common data base and a common access management system.
Improve the security level. Provide a snapshot of the situation.
Positively measuring and assessing the level of effectiveness and efficiency of the computer security measures adopted in the ICT system area used by the customer is the objective of the Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Test activities.
Find any vulnerabilities at the system/network level (such as system bugs, incorrect operating system configurations) relating to systems or services exposed both on the public Internet and on the internal network in order to prevent an external threatening agent from getting unauthorised access to the resources of the IT infrastructure and carry out various malicious activities.
Find any vulnerabilities at the application level. The application VA work phases involve:
- Application Mapping: finding applications currently in operation and assigning a level of criticality to the services in connection with the type of processing and the access procedures (Internet, internal network)
- Application Security Analysis: analysis of the logics and security mechanisms currently implemented at the application level, with classification of the risks for the security of the data processed and identification of the residual risk.
- Web Application Vulnerability Assessment: research using automatic tools and vulnerability penetration test activities at the Web Application level, comparison of the results with the records that emerge from the Application Security Analysis phase.
The set of technical and organisational measures adopted to ensure the organisation the functioning of the data processing centre and of the IT procedures and application of the organisation when events that might trigger prolonged unavailability occur. A document, the Disaster Recovery Plan, is drawn up for this purpose. It explains these measures and is part of the broader Business Continuity Plan.
The possible disaster levels and the criticality of the systems/applications are then analysed in order to efficiently respond to an emergency situation.
The Business Continuity activities – interviews, field surveys, processing and sharing of assessments of threats – are necessary in order to identify everything that might ensure the continuity of a line of business and to identify any threats that, should they emerge, might cause devastating impacts inside the organisation.
Beta 80 particularly lets you produce the following deliverables:
- Business Continuity Plan: the set of documented procedures that guide organisations in responding to, recovering, resuming and reinstating the activities at a pre-defined level after an interruption by covering the resources, services and activities required in order to ensure continuity of the critical organisational functions.
- Business Impact Analysis: the process of analysing activities and effects that an interruption might have on them, so that the priorities for recovering critical processes can be established.
